Bottle at a tasting. I am surprised to see how high the scores are for this beer. It is good, not flaws, and the bitter hops and lightly sweet malt are well balanced.

UPDATED: MAR 26, 2015 Du Nelson Sauvin hyper aromatique et juteux avec un corps très East Coast donc aérien avec ses particules de confort. Je considère Alpine comme étant les maîtres des Weast Coast IPA et celle-là est un exemple parfait. Faut aimer le Nelson en mono parce que le bouquet est massif.

ACHops (922) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 20, 2015
On tap @ City Beer. Pours super hazy yellow, almost milky in appearance, clearly unfiltered, with thick lacy white head. Aroma is lightly sweet pale malt and tons of fresh earthy hops. Taste is light pale malt, then a rush of sticky dank hops. Notes of pine, grapefruit, and grass. Somewhat light on the malt, than again this isn’t a DIPA. Awesome beer.

Lizardking3 (183) - Springfield, Oregon, USA - JAN 1, 2015
Pours deep honey golden orange, with super creamy white head that lasts forever. Aroma is a lot of ripe mango and grapefruits, lots of breadiness as well. First taste I get a lot of caramel and then immediately after the citrus flavors and overripe mango. The finish is slightly spicy and a nice mellow bitterness. Damn this is very nice from top to bottom

Bottle from brewery. Pours bright, hazy orange with creamy white head. Aroma is grapefruit, orange peel, cereal and toasted malts, and some floral spiciness. Flavor is dry malt base with rich hop flavor with notes of grapefruit and other citrus. Medium body and carbonation.

CanIHave4Beers (3535) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - DEC 31, 2014
Bottle, courtesy of a saultbauls... shared in a location remote of my dining room.
Pours a nice pale straw color with a bit of haziness, a big head and good lacing on the glass.

The aroma is intensely melony with some dankness & some light spiciness. It’s got a light sweetness and a huge aromatic hop presence that is beyond inviting.

The flavor is lightly bitter with a touch of sweetness. It’s got a lot of melon forward hops. A nice lingering bitterness and a dry fininsh. Clean and super hop forward, this is simply conceived, well executed, single hop IPA at it’s best. Sheesh.
