toxichop (338) - South Gate, California, USA - JUN 6, 2014
On tap at 38° Brewed at Green Flash. P: Hazy orange with a two finger thick white head. S: Oh man, this thing is swimming in pineapples and mangos , with some pine and its just pretty much an assault of hops. T: Mangoss, pine, bitter hops (but not overwhelming) some lime and just a small amount of malt. M: Incredibly light with soft carbonation. O: Fantastic brew.

carboloader (673) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 16, 2014
Pours orange with white head. Another great example from Alpine -- almost all the pine/citrus flavor without much alcohol. Not my favorite in this style, but definitely way up there.

Half pint on cask at Toronado SD. Pours a hazy yellow color with a thin white head. Aroma is hoppy, citrus, grapefruit, orange. Medium on on the palate with light, soft carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, bready, light caramel, some citrus, grapefruit hops, with a smooth, bitter finish. Very nice pale ale.

Alpine doesn’t do mediocre beer, another example of that .. . deep amber .. . solid sticky mouth .. . clean as a whistle finish .. . great brew! .. . . Former Nintendo president just died. Doctors tried up up down down left right left right B A for hours, but couldn’t save him.

markwise (4467) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 27, 2013
64oz growler courtesy of hamilton23. Cheers, Steve! Thanks so much for this one. Never in my life when I started this hobby did I think that I would love a hoppy pale ale so much. So it goes. Pours a mostly clear yellow gold with a white head that recedes and laces. Nose is some mild pine, some white grapefruit, some herbal mild dank, and some earthy grassy hops. Flavor starts with lemon, moves to white grapefruit then quickly into pine and mild citrus with a hint of earthy and grassy hops. Light in body with lingering pine in the finish. Definite A Game beer.

(Growler) Pours a clear golden body with a medium white head. Aroma of pine, grass, stone fruit, florals, and herbs. Flavor of grass, herbs, peach, nuts, toffee, and citrus with a dry finish.

schismatik (5) - WHITTIER, USA - JUN 1, 2013 does not count
Pours a hazy copper orange with two finger head that leaves a few mins after pouring. Smell is of dank piney citrus hops. Taste is piney, citrusy/grapefruit hop blast. The finish is dry and crisp. The mouthfeel is light and dry. Overall the best session ipa I?ve had to date!
