Aroma of fresh grapefruit, lemon grass and reisling. Pours light amber with little film. Tastes amazing with citrus notes and sweet malts in perfect hoppy harmony. Great IPA!

Poured from a 22oz bottle, bright amber color withe small white head. Aroma is grapefruit, floral, citrus, tangerine, maybe apricot, but there is a slight hint of malt in the background. The taste is wonderful. Not heavy or thick initially. Great tropical twang, bitterness is balanced with malts. To be so tasty, this one is really light. Amazing. This is one of my favorite IPAs. If you get the chance, try this beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at home shared with my dad. Pour is golden orange with a big, fluffy white head and great lacing. Weed, resin, grass, grapefruit peel, bread, and orange in the aroma. Taste is much sweeter, pineapple, grass, tangerine, lemon zest, biscuit, ganja, and orange peel ending moderately bitter. Medium mouthfeel with high carbonation. Really nice IPA, but not quite on the same level as Nelson.

Thanks to mrmiles for sending 2 of these! A: Pours a hop-hazed bright amber/orange color with a big fluffy head. Retention is really really nice in the snifter. S: Candied pineapple/mango/tangerine, light apricot, a nice citrus bite, and what seems to be a firm but light malt base. T: Awesome tropical fruit, orchard fruit, citrus twang, solid bitterness, and well balanced malts. Served this beer at a buffet party at my house with a bunch of wine drinkers/macro lovers and it was a HUGE hit. MF/D: Medium body, smooth/slightly prickly carbonation, lingering bitter and tropical fruit finish Notes: Damn, Alpine makes my kind of IPAs. Really easy drinker for IPA fans, and a really nice showcase of tropical fruit/citrus flavors and aromas. Highly recommended!

Poured from bottle amber color. Aroma of big pine and citrus. Taste is a floral up front with some bitterness. Nice balance. Alpine hits another homerun.

Summer 2011 - I can’t remember where I picked this bottle up, but I remember feeling the label looked a lot like something you’d see in someone’s bottle collection, dating back to the 90’s before bottle labeling became as competitive and employed professional designers. It’s charming, and in the end, it ended up being wrapped a good beer too. The color is your standard golden IPA, and the aroma features a good dose of noble hops, a sweet dollop of apple sauce, and a healthy touch of cinnamon. Even though this is an IPA, I already find it inviting. The flavor welcomes me with a smooth hops flavor, not bursting from the bottle waiting to scratch my eyes out, but refined and even dapper. In sum, the flavor is mellow, and the palate perfectly matches it. It’s almost like a drinkable, likable ESB, with that Old World flavor but all the hops edge that an ESB never gets to benefit from. Alpine Beer Company, you’re on my radar!

Probably my favorite of all the beers I tried at Alpine. Light, very bitter, and very refreshing. Nose is somewhat floral, then you get to all the bittering hops which are very well balanced and quick and clean to the finish and there’s nothing left on your tongue. Great example of a west coast IPA.

Location/Date:Bottle on August 26th, 2012.

Appearance: Pours a orange copper somewhat clear, light white head.
Aroma: Aroma is very floral, with faint pine.
Taste: Wow is the first word that comes out of my mouth. Medium bitterness that is aggressive but not overpowering, faint hay malt underneath.
Palate:Medium light body, slightly slick, lingering aftertaste of piney hops.

Summary: My first experience with Alpine Beer Company, and yeah it doesn’t disappoint. Thanks Dave for acquiring this, it’s tasty.

This poured a murky lighter orange color with a creme colored head. Aroma was lots of tangerines and peaches, lemongrass and grass, no sign of malt at all :). Flavor was much the same, tons of fruity tropical flavors, with almost literally no bitterness or malt. These guys really know how to make some damn good IPAS.

UPDATED: AUG 23, 2012 650ml bottle from a trade with stawn

Pours clear dark amber color with a nice foamy white head. Aroma of extremely fresh and fruity hops, grassy notes, some hints of pine, caramel malts and toffee. Taste has a massive amount of fresh, fruity and grassy hops, hints of pine, exotic fruits, lemon, grapefruit, orange, mango. Some distant notes of malty toffee and caramel. Finish is sweetish and again very hoppy and fruity, but surprisingly quite light bodied and not very bitter. Alcohol warms a bit in the finish as well. Overall an extremely well balanced and tasty hop juice. Perhaps could’ve used just a tad more bitterness to make it perfect for my taste.
