Bottle. Pours a clear caramel color with some spotty head. Citrus, pine, tons of fruit is the aroma and taste. Really a damn good beer.

9 oz pour on draft at Spacebar into a goblet. Thanks DCLawyer for the heads up! Aromas of citrus, floral, light pine. Tastes of grapefruit citrus, floral, pine, hop oils. Medium body with a dry finish.

GenkiGonzo (614) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 28, 2015
Draught at GBF Shibuya. Almost clear pale gold with a small tight head. Aroma is a huge hit of fresh hops with some lemon. Incredibly fresh and light. Loads of hop flavour without breaking your palate. What a beer!

Gachupines (1073) - USA - JUL 26, 2015
Hazy golden color with a thick white head. Aroma is mild, floral hops. Flavor is crisp, fruity hops with a clean finish. Very drinkable while remaining flavorful. Hops are present but slightly understated. Perfect summer IPA. Wife: 4.25

Bottle. This is a killer IPA with such incredible hop depth - not tounge blistering - just balanced.

mixmasterob (970) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 18, 2015
Growler from Stout Brothers. Murky golden pour with a frothy white head, good lace on the glass. Aroma was citrus, white grapes, lemon, earthy. Flavors came thru with lots of white wine, citrus, earthy, spicy hops. Lingering white wine, grape finish with more bitterness than Duet. Earthy rye malt presence among the wonderful hop flavors. Impressive stuff. Fun and interesting hop.

MadRobin (2392) - Silver Spring, USA - JUL 17, 2015
On tap at Lost Dog Cafe in Merrifield, VA. Clear, dark yellow with a fine, off-white head and excellent lacing. Aroma of tropical fruit, grapefruit, grass, green onion, biscuits and lemon. Taste of guava, citrus, chardonnay, grass, green onions, pineapple and biscuits. Medium/full body and medium/low carbonization. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft pour pint at Special Brews. So it looks like these guys have the IPA game figured out, at least according to popular opinion. Pours a cloudy pale yellow color with a fading fizz head. Hop forward aroma. Flavor is hops dominant, a little citrus fruit, and a little earthy. Long, cool finish here, with a mild bitterness. Solid IPA overall, but not my favorite IPA from Alpine. Still, I’d call this a clear stand out.

emartell (289) - Zapopan, Jalisco, MEXICO - JUL 16, 2015
Notas cítricas y frutales en las que se percibe piña y naranja. Color amarillo claro, un poco pálida, buena carbonatacion, espuma media. Notas nuevamente frutales y cítricas dominan en boca. En resumen buena IPA, agradable y fácil de tomar.
