Another endgame IPA from Alpine. Totally delicious, fresh, with some dankness, grapefruit notes, mostly dry, with medium carbonation. Astoundingly balanced, and just right for an IPA. Lucky to have tracked this one.

Tap at Enzo’s BBQ in Oceanside. Holy shit this smells phenomenal...
Pours a murky dark orange with a small but dense white head. Aroma is ridiculous... Orange, pineapple, grapefruit, more orange and pineapple and just a hint of caramel malt. Taste is identical to aroma, with more caramel malt at the finish to balance it, but it is a bit too sweet at the end. Source lacing and a clean palate round out a brilliant IPA.

Bottle in trade. Pours light orange, white head. Aroma is grassy and piney. hint of sweetness. Taste is light, pine, sweet, bitter, but finished clean and dry. One of the better IPAs i’ve had in awhile.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
This IPA was one of the best tasting IPAs I have had. I had it on tap so it might be different in a bottle. You can taste the hops, but the taste is not overwhelming. Medium to large body, it drinks like a thicker beer than it actually is.

Golden amber color with a dense, frothy, white head. Grapefruit, citrus peel, pine needles, pepper, and herbal. Some malty sweetness mixed with the resin bitterness. Smooth, almost a little oily, and moderately carbed. Mild booziness in the bitter finish.

Excellent IPA, similar to a sculpin but heavier body. Great aroma complex more than just hop bitterness.

Tried this at the bottle share that sprung up at the Swamp Head Bottle Drop. Pours light yellowish gold with a fluffy white head on top. Aroma of huge pineapple, grapefruit, other citrus notes, lemon peel, sweet honey from the malts. Awesome. The flavor is even better. Huge pineapple sweetness up front followed by bitter pine and grapefruit, some grass, and big lingering citrus notes throughout the palate. Super light bodied, easy going, and medium plus carbonation. I wish I could have this every day.

Clear golden yellow in color, slightly herbal nose with notes of citrus hops. Flavor has a very smooth peppery mouthfeel with fairly dry spicey hops on the finish. Really enjoyable but I like Nelson better
