This one couldn’t wait until Sunday smile emoticon. Alpine Duet. Pours hazy yellow a brilliant kiss form orange. Pours out like light you can see it in my photo. Thin white head that wants to hang on. Nose is explosive with tropical. Crisp honey dew melon. Herbal hop that has a woody backing. Orange blossom honey.
Perfect mouthfeeel . The eptiome of lightness. Crisp lightly sweet, bubbly beer. The catty spice from the simcoe takes this one to the finish and doesn’t back down. Impressive tailored bitterness. At the very swallow the woody earthy hop. Bitter, drying. it seems to evaporate after all this fireworks of flavor.
Well worth the seven dollars and change for the bomber. Drinks like hops juice with all the succulence of the hops. a light orangey citrus in the background. Hop nectar. They leave a light pepper on the tongue as it lingers dank and fruity. I’ll have more.
Welcome to the PGA beer rating system: one beer “Don’t bother.” Two: Eh, if someone gives it to you, drink. Three: very good, go ahead and seek it out, but be aware there is at least one problem. Four: seek it out. Five: pretty much “perfecto.”
That’s Maria Devan. In the picture. Between the two guys.
