Truth in advertising here. Big piney aroma followed closely by citrus. When you sip it you get the pine/floral followed by some warming alcohol heat and then the grapefruit comes into play. Well made and very enjoyable. As the bottle progresses the hops become less pronounced.

pepsican (1465) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - JAN 27, 2010
hazy orange pour with a small white head. Aroma is classic fruit bomb west coast IPA. Flavor has pine, pineapple, mango, a bit of caramel malts round it out. Bitter finish, almost a little watery even at 7%. Good carbonation.

Bottle thanks to weeheavysd. The smell is grapefruits, hops, some bitterness, more hops, and spices. The look is yellow, cloudy, with a decent white head. The taste is hop, some bitterness, citrus, grapefruits, hops, and spices.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JAN 25, 2010
Draft. Poured a clear medium orange color. The head was fluffy, dense, and white with good retention and lacing. Lovely nose and flavor dominated by fruity hops. Apricot and mango were graced by a bit of citrus. The malt backbone was ample, but not all that assertive. Light to medium bodied and delicately sweet with moderate to high hop bitterness. This stuff is delicious.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 25, 2010
Ridiculous head retention on these Alpine beers, like stiff peak egg whites. Pours a dark gold. Aroma is orange peel and bergamot with hints of lavender. Flavor is clean, crisp hops; almost gets a wee bit soapy, but still quite nice.

Color is a bit on the lighter orange side of thins. Huge floral and pine aromas. This balances out in the flavor a bit with a nice malt profile. The hops are nice and subtle. On the finish there is a citrusy bite with lots of grapefruit. The hops here do not overpower the beer and the balance with the malt is really nice to make this an incredibly approachable and drinkable IPA.

Light brown pour with a thick white head. Grapefruit, pine, floral aromas. Taste- bitter hops, fruity, flowery hops, nice malt profile. Very drinkable and unique.

arminjewell (7028) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 20, 2010
Pours hazy orange with huge white head, nice and fresh. Aroma is full of grapefruit and citrusy hops, taste up front is grapefruit, lemon, orange, and moves into caramel sweetness and bitters well. An excellent robust IPA!

On tap @ the brewery. More nectarine than gold in color with a massive ivory head that you could rest a quarter on. Aroma exhibits freshly squeezed oranges, lemon, moderate pine, and a hint of malt for balance. Flavor is similar...not aggressive at all, but clean and well put together. Medium mouthfeel with ample carbonation.
