UPDATED: JAN 2, 2013 Bottle shared by Sean, thanks! Poured a clear amber gold with a white head that dissipated quickly to the edges. Aroma had fresh pine hops with a balancing citrus note and backing sweet malts. Flavor had a slight sweet note in the beginning but plenty of pine came on with some citrus and floral notes coming out in the finish.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz. Bottle. High quality super drinkable IPA. Pours a light golden straw color with a thin layer of head. Nose is enticing with a strong lemon zest and a sweet dry grapefruit aroma. Flavors are layered exceptionally well with a fruity hop kick up front followed up by an edgy bitterness. Most of the sweetness from the malt is at the beginning and the bitterness tends to creep through the intense grapefruit and piney hop flavors. Really well balanced with a slightly oily texture and a medium carbonation. The finish leaves you craving another sip. Another winner from Alpine!

Wow - one of the best aromas ever like the purest, sweetest grapefruit you ever tasted. The appearance is beautiful golden color with some sediment. The flavor starts out so smooth and sweet hoppiness but then that gtapefruit comes back in an awesome way, but with a bit of clear bitterness.
