COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A West Coast Double IPA So mega-hopped it will take you to hop heaven. We’ve used hops in the boil, more hops in the giant hopback, and added to that, an incredible amount of dry-hopping for that cutting-edge “hop bite.” Once you’ve tasted this unique beer, all others pale in comparison. 1.072 OG Classified IBU 8%ABV

Tasting at Jack’s RAH Annexe! Lightly hazy amber beer, good pale cream colour head. Airy palate, semi dry. Good fine carbonation. Airy malts, trace of caramel. Hops are lovely light pine, mild skunk, spicy tropical fruits. Light airy finish. Delicious!

BelgianBeerGal (3287) - Panama City, Florida, USA - SEP 9, 2014
Draft at the brewery. Clear gold. Light aroma of citrus hops. Bitterness that builds in the flavor from the sweeter start. My favorite of everything I tried from Alpine except for expo.

slowrunner77 (6336) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 6, 2014
"Long time wish list item lived up to expectations. Slightly sweet aroma and flavor. Citrus, tropical fruit and lots of pine resin, especially on the palate. A sneaky 8%. Just a little bit of malt to balance. Wonderful hoppy brew."
