illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 23, 2010
Bottle from my friend in LA. Pours a golden amber with an off white head and webby lacing. Great floral hop and exotic fruit aroma. Light side of medium bodied with perfect carbonation. Flavor of pale malts that really take a back seat to a nicely blend hop bitterness of grapefruit rind, apricot, and herbs. Moderate to low sweetness. Dry and grassy bitterness that clings without being overly resiny. Good shit

kbutler1 (1377) - North Carolina, USA - AUG 22, 2010
Bottle. Light copper color with a 1 finger head that quickly dissapates. Nice collar. Floral and malty notes in the aroma. Citrus as well. More malt forward in the taste than I would expected but the back end really has a nice hop bite. Very crisp. Pretty tasty IPA.

2004st4s (33) - Arizona, USA - AUG 20, 2010
Bomber, pours a slightly cloudy honey color. Off-color white head that lasts and leaves a ton of lacing. Great west-coast IPA. Terrific aromas; grapefruit, citrus, pine, melon, etc... Taste is well balanced with just enough malt/alcohol to tame the hops. Not overly bitter, just a great balanced IPA.

mattyb83 (737) - Minnesota, USA - AUG 17, 2010
From a bomber. Pour is a slightly hazy amber color with a small white head. Great aroma that is full of fruit, citrus, and some pine. I’m getting pineapple, grapefruit, and some orange. More orange and grapefruit in the flavor with some pine and floral hop flavors as well. Could use a little bit more malt presence, but otherwise this is another fantastic IPA from Alpine.

mtjoseph (244) - Murderapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 17, 2010
Bomber. Pours a golden orange with a soft white head. Aroma consisting of bright citrus hops with slight booze and malt sweetness. A medium body with a big hoppy backbone, this IPA really stands it grounds. Notes of Carmel, pine, and fruity citrus really stand out on the palate. Pleasurable, hoppy, yet balanced. A very solid offering

nimbleprop (5942) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 14, 2010
22oz bottle pours a totally transparent, orangeish amber with a frothy, white head. Nose is great, piney, perfume, sweet, sticky/resinous hops, orange zest, grapefruit zest. Nose is very inviting. Flavor is sticky hops, herbal, perfume, just enough sweetness rounding things out. Finish is medium bodied and only lightly bitter on the end making this really drinkable.

MrBunn (2574) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 10, 2010
Bottle shared with gordito. Pours a crystal clear light orange with a pretty large fizzy/sudsy head. Aromas are spectacular. A nice mix of citrus and tropical fruits with a little pine and resin that comes in late. Flavor is heavy with the pine/resin with the tropical fruit taking a secondary role.

phaleslu (7546) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 31, 2010
22 oz. bottle from South Bay Drugs. Pours a clear amber color with a finger-thick eggshell white head. Awesome aroma of herbal hops, pine, orange citrus, floral notes, caramel malts, and tea leaves. Flavor of piney hops, citrus, floral and herbal notes, caramel, and tea. Light-medium bodied, with a tea-like mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Great mix of sweet and herbal. An awesome west coast IPA.
