Bottle from South Bay Drugs and Liquor: I have had this on tap before, but I am so glad to be able to write my thoughts about this beer from a bottle then a loud and crowded bar. Poured in color as a solid blondish gold with a rocky patch of foam. In the nose, there was an over-dominant scent of piney hops with background of a grapefruit or other citrus based fruit. The flavor is an organic and fresh of sticky freshly picked green hops with a solid balance of malts in the mix. This does come across very bitter and will leave behind a dry and metallic aftertaste which is to be expected for such a fine made IPA.

My second Alpine beer of the night after the Pure Hoppiness. Next to that beer this one lacks a little, but next to 99% of IPAs out there this is perfection. I love how they get so much hop flavor into their IPAs. Im not a huge Simcoe fan but Amarillo is amazing and balances flavor-wise tremendously. Citrus and spruce are dominant.

Bottle thanks to ocbeersociety, huge hop aroma, pine, citrus, and dank. Huge similar hop flavors and alight bitterness with some hop flavors in the finish. Another home run by alpine!

Bottle, as pictured. Pours a pretty-clear golden yellow. Smells fantastic...tons of citrus and pine in it - big fan. Taste is actually less than I thought it’d be. I figured it’d be more flavorful, but it’s more just smooth than anything.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5769) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 5, 2011
Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark golden amber color with a medium sized foamy white head that faded and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was sweet pineapple, grapefruit, orange and caramel. The flavor was strong sweet pineapple and grapefruit, moderate orange and pine and a caramel undertone. The finish was long with lingering pineapple, grapefruit and orange. Full bodied and syrupy. Excellent.

I can’t believe I have yet to rate this. Oh wait, I haven’t really rated anything until the last year so yes I can believe it. Pours a much more yellow orange than the other standard Alpine IPAs. Taste is more subdued when compared to the DIPA and Nelson. Some level of cat urine, in the best way possible. Not as sweet as the others but the best change of pace. Love this beer.

(on draught at Alpine). Pours a clear golden color with a creamy white head. Aroma is caramel malts, citrus, resin and pine. Taste is sweet malts with a nice citrusy bitterness. Medium bodied with an oily texture. Pleasant bitter finish. Really great beer.

22 oz bottle from Tom in trade. Thanks a bunch! Pours a nice darker golden hue, filtered with no real haze, lively carbonation leaves a cakey offwhite head atop, huge, dies down but stays fairly thick. Solid lacing, golden orange fire. Aromas are a melange of citrus and tropical fruits, pairing into grass, florals, some dank weed like aromas, with some gumball, pale malts, and bread. A lot of fruity hops as it warms, playing well together. Initial is medium bodied, preaching a solid bitterness up front. Lemons, grapefruit, florals, and grass move into more fruity melon, gumball, and dancing tropical fruit as you get further in. A solid, above average bitterness with tasty fruity slant from the hops, not shying away from any bitterness though. Middle throws some soap and dry florals, grass mixing into some pale malts, bread easily covered up by a melange of hoppy fresh goodness. A touch of that dry bread comes back into play with the grass, florals, and soap. The finish leaves a good bitterness, lingering dry hops, resinous oils, dry bread as the fruit fades away a bit, letting the bitter hops attack and envelope the palate. Pretty nice fresh IPA that gave me a fairly complex experience, the fruit dying out a bit. Very nice.
