4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft - Earthy pine in a forest of pine, with a bit of tropical fruit. Clear gold and a rich but thin head. Skunky pine, spice, almost balanced but a big bitterness lingers with a bit of alcohol burn. Pretty awesome.

Bottle thanks to tleaver. Thanks Tom! This is now my second Alpine beer and boy do they do it right. Pours a clear orange color with a white head. Aroma of piney hops. Some alcohol. The taste is well balanced with a slight bitterness. Wet oily feel that coats the mouth. Great carbonation with the right amount if tingle. Not overdone but as the name says, pure hoppiness.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured golden hued with white head that dissipated quickly. Smelled of grapefruit. Tasted of citrus and had a few hints of strawberries. Great carbonation that made the mouthfeel light. The bitterness hits hard, but why else would you drink an IIPA?

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours deep golden with thick two-finger head that dissipates rapidly. Good lacing. Aromas of tropical fruit, citrus, grass and a slight whiff of soap. Sweet malt hits the palate first, followed by earthy, citrusy hops. Soapy and astringent finish (and aftertaste). Medium body with light carbonation. Overall, a decent imperial IPA, balanced and well crafted but the astringent finish and soapy aftertaste diminish its drinkability.

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2013 Tasted this at their BBQ and immediately ordered a pint. I’d rank this right up there with Pliny.

I have drank many many bottles of this and many pints at the pub. I just realized that I have never actually rated it. Not sure how that slipped through the cracks. Poured from 22oz bottle. Pours nice hazy golden color with thin white head. Aroma is hops and just a touch of grapefruit. Taste follows the nose with a nice citrus bit, good hop flavor and a fair amount of malt sweetness. Tasty beer, like all ABC IPAs.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This beer, bold, very bright orange in color with a bright white head, has an amazing nose. Amazing. It’s bold with bright, citrusy hops and a well-balanced sweetness. Its mouthfeel is soft, thick, but light and bright, a perfect delivery system for the beautiful hop profile. A touch of pine, some fruit, but mostly a thick citrusy hop character dominates the bouquet. It’s beautiful. Light, but dense enough to deliver thanks to that addictive softness.

Bottle. Easy drinker, creamy and very hoppy, but not bitter or over powering.F Not as good as I was expecting but a very solid beer.

Bottle from Larry, slightly hazy golden pour. Aroma of citrus, dank hops and caramel malt. Taste is a dank bitterness with light citrus building in the after taste. Thick mouth feel and nice bitter finish.
