NikkTwist (1911) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2015
Draft at Good Dog. Hazy orange gold pour with a slim white head that left a nice show of lace. Nice hop aroma. Orange peels. Pineapple rind. Grapefruit pith. Browned lemons. Watermelon rind. Has a pleasant earthiness to it as well. Autumn leaves. Mushroomed tree stumps. Chanterelles. Medium toffee malts. Mildly juicy. Semi-fruity but a good dry spicy finish. Alpine keeps surprising me with new solid variations of IPAs. Good stuff!

On tap at Happy Gnome. Pours a clear orange with a gold hue and a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a dank pine note with a decent amount of bitter grapefruit and a sweet grain backbone. Flavor has some bitter grapefruit and pine with a hint of citrus and an earthy grain backbone.

gsmitty80 (1960) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 12, 2015
A little on the bitter side. It had a big hoppy taste but it seemed very high alpha heavy which gave it a bit of an off taste but it wasn't enough to make it undrinkable by any means.

rejtable (1672) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 12, 2015

BOSSbrewer (2507) - Arkansas, USA - MAY 9, 2015
On tap at Phantom Brewing. Pours a slightly hazy yellow with a thick foamy head. Very biter. Not much hop character. Decent but not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

cheap (4477) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 9, 2015
On tap at Hollywood during the spring Harley tour of 15. Slight bo aroma. First taste is bitter IPA of course, so ubiquitous. Becomes difficult and slightly mouth coating. As session continues I’d say its IPA without the alky. A finish that’s difficult to deal with as with any IPA. Very little co2. Not impressed, even without the alky. Reminds me of decaf coffee, heheh.

stevoj (2716) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 9, 2015
Tap at River Room. A nice rich golden body with creamy head. Initial blast of hops on the nose, taste follows with crisp, sharp hop bitterness. One of the hoppier APAs, but very tasty.
