Picked up a fresh growler full of Hoppy Birthday, and after a long day of bottling and cleaning, I'm ready for a beer.
Pours to my glass a rich golden, near amber color. Very clear and topped with a thick bright white head layer. The nose is of very piney and citrusy hops. Sharp hop notes abound and that's what I like so much about this beer. The body of this beer is right on and continues with the extra hoppy nature present in the nose. The mouthfeel is very rich for being such a lower ABV beer.
Hoppy Birthday is the perfect beer for a sunny San Diego day. Over-hopped and lower ABV are blended perfectly, as Alpine Beer Co. is often able to do.
