A world class display of my favorite hop in the universe. Excellent stone fruit character, bits of citrus, lightly spicy.

Bottle@Tasting in gothenburg. Apperance: Fizzy yellow with a big white head Aroma: Tropical fruit, citric notes, hops. Taste: Exotic fruit, citric notes, hint of caramel, hint of rye. Palate: Softish with medium carbonation. Very drinkable. Probably one of the best ipas in the world!

blomster (249) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 2, 2014
Bottle. Light, hazy, hay coloured pour, white head. Smells great! Mango, passionfruit, pine needles. Medium bitterness. Passionfruit, citrus, pineapple, resin in taste. Little residual sugar, dry but at the same time quite big bodied. Long, smooth, tasty finish. How I would love to have some locals available that tastes like this.

Lothore (542) - California, USA - MAR 29, 2014
A- Pours a light tangerine hue with a nice, 1.5 finger frothy white head that leaves decent lacing on the way down. S- Grassy, Citrus, tons of grapefruit, mixed with light sweet fruits. T- Bready and a tad spicy that leads into lots of citrus, blood orange, tangerine, grapefruit and has a nice bitter finish. M- Medium bodied with medium carbonation. D- A lot of these new top IPAs (Nelson, Sculpin, etc.) are very similar to pliny in the nose. This was wonderfully complex and balanced and one of the best IPAs i’ve ever tasted, bar none.

dfroms (205) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAR 26, 2014
Bottle via GT2 (thanks!), who just might have turned me on to this whole rating thing for good. Sampled on 3/14. Pours a lovely, hazy pale gold, minimal lacing. Aroma is juicy lychee, Asian pear, honey, hint of red licorice, hint of dank pine and marijuana. Taste is lychee nectar, mango, candied orange, honeydew, straight fruit-juicy goodness with malt sweetness and mouth-drying bitterness. A memorable first rating. Just returned from VT a month ago, but this is probably better than anything I had there.

Bottle from Steasy! Hazy yellow gold pour with a white head. Citrus and floral smoothed by the rye. This is excellent!

CraftBeerLvr41 (82) - Illinois, USA - MAR 18, 2014
L: Light pale and straw in color. Strong and this pillow like foamy head, lingers quite a bit as well. Slight haze. S: Citrus and tropical upfront then the rye hits you with some faint black licorice and rubber notes. T: Again citrus upfront with rye blending in nicely fading into a real nice pine. M: Light and easy to drink. Really nice mouth-feel to his one. O: Really nice beer, would love to have this all the time. One thing I notice about Alpine is its kinda like my homebrew, at the bottom has some hop bits in it lol.

Bottle thanks to Taylor. Very grapey and floral. A very light malt backbone. Solid. Horrible review

Pours clear golden color. Huge piney and danky aroma. Taste is like licking a pine cone... Huge piney and danky flavor.
