My two favorite beers: Alpine’s Duet and Alpine’s Nelson (Rye IPA). In San Diego, we have an embarrassment of riches with 60+ micro and nano breweries. Still, these two have great aroma, palate, finish and bite.Long my favorties. Strong so bring it home if you can. Still, better on tap at Toronado, Ritual Tavern, Hamilton’s or O’Brien’s.

THis has long been one of my two favorite brews (Alpine Nelson being the other). This fine beer has a strong floral aroma that reveals the two hops giving it it’s name.It has a nice body, firm but not chunky. It has a clean though not quite dry finish. I strongly recommend this to anyone who enjoys a robust IPA.

A very complex IPA from Alpine with tons of citrus and tropical fruit qualities, namely mango and pineapple. Not as piney as Nelson and certainly has richer and less bitter qualities than Nelson but same hoppiness. I’m always surprised Nelson gets more attention, as this is a killer IPA. Lovely appearance as well, with a amber/carmelish hue.

The spirit is been a delicious go to IPAA of mine for some time now. Like the name is just the right balance of flavors and it's not too overpowering.

650ml bottle. It pours a deep gold with hints of orange and a foamy white head. The smell is unique for an IPA I think and I really enjoy it. There is a lot of tropical fruit, specifically papaya, which I hate the taste of but love the smell of. It has this deep vinous characteristic with white grapes. This smell goes perfectly with the warm weather outside. The flavor is just refreshing and thirst-quenching. Tons of green grapes in the flavor along with tropical fruit hints with pineapple and passion fruit, and an assload of citrus. I love these two hops, just love em. There isn’t too much acidity though which lends it to being even more spectacular. The malt backing is subtle and the bitterness is medium. I have had single hop brews of both of these varieties, but put them together and you get this absolute beast. On tpa it is like drinking fruit juice, a beer with almost no equal.

PhillyCraft (4071) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 22, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2014 Pours a slightly clear golden yellow. Small head and little spotted lacing. Aromas of pineapple, grapefruit, cocoa, vanilla, molasses, resinous and juicy hoppy. Tons of simcoe and ammarillo hops present. Taste is a juicy cherry hop bite, and wood notes. Amazing beer. Tons of dank melons and pineapple.

Aroma is orange and other citrus. Low carbonation with a clear golden color. Taste is perfect with a great balance of hops and malt back. This one of the best IPA's I've ever tasted. Finish leaves you craving the next swallow. Craftsmanship at its finest. Tasted out of a bomber brought back from SD. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours clear gold with a medium white head. aroma has awesome fresh, leafy hoppiness...grassy spice, melon, pear, and stonefruits...glorious. flavor is damn near hop perfection...grapefruit spice, light earthy bitterness, pear, stonefruits, melon...just the perfect amount of pale malt peeking through. Mouthfeel is medium and silky with a dry, grapefruity/rindy fresh hoppy finish. wow!! this beer is insane!
