3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Short rating (’cause I’m @ work right now...) Pour from a growler. Aroma dripping with resin and fruit rind. Light crusty malt. Peaches and some pears. Slightly floral with some grass and herbs as well. Crystal clear golden pour with a resilient fluffy white head. Minimal lacing. Flavor is quite dry. I was expecting quite a bit more based on the aroma. Lost of dry, crusty and bready malt. Slightly spicy and resinous hops. Herbal and crackery. Medium bodied. Average carbonation with a bone dry finish. Decent. Thanks Randall!

Mouthfeel is probably my favorite thing about this beer. It is one of Alpines more malty beers. So if you like malt then you’ll love this one. It is one of a kind and another solid beer by Alpine.

Bottle shared by Smith in the GTMW line - Pours clear golden with a soapy white head. Nose is soapy, dank hops, fruity with a bit of savory, spicy hops on the finish. Tastes bigger than an IPA, boozy and warm, with lots of stinky dank onion/garlic hops. Fluffy and pretty full-bodied. Tasty, tasty stuff.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sample pour of deep good with a decent white head that dissipates quickly. Nose is sharp hops, plenty of citrus, especially grapefruit.... And Parmesan cheese? Great flavor of plenty of hops and citrus, super juicy. Nice all the way!

Bottle. Golden, thin white head with nice lacing. Nose is bready malts, citrus fruits, fresh hops, earth. Taste is fresh hops, light citrus fruits, bready malts--much more malt balance than I expected. Watery, low carbonation. Dry bitter finish.

Sampled at DLD 2013. It poured a pale golden color with a white head. The aroma was of bright sweet orange peel hoppiness. The taste was of hops with red grapefruit juice, candied orange peel and apricot jelly. Very well done.

Big bottle in a tulip. Pours slightly murky amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma strong of citrusy and resinous hops plus a good amount of pale malts. Flavor the same with a strong hoppiness all the way through. Average texture. A great IPA.
