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

bottle from tleaver33, thanks bro. pours orange amber with a thin off white head. nose is bursting with pine, citrus peel, resin. taste is pretty balanced for a dipa, hops translate from the nose to the mouth on a lingering finish. must be the lightest 8% beer around since the body seems thin at times. overall, very enjoyable and hope to tr more of their hoppy offerings.

dogfish120love (913) - Westfield, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 11, 2013
Pours a cloudy dark orange with a beige, but barely present lacing. Aroma is pine, grapefruit and resin. Initially somewhat cloying, but finishes with a lingering bitterness

Pours a bright gold with no head. Aroma of bitter hops, citrus and pine. Taste is malty up front, then it smacks you with bitter citrus and pine. Really tasty ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is one of the finest, all-around IPA I’ve ever tasted. It’s fantastic in every regard. The hops and malt blend is absolute perfection. It tastes of smooth but bold northwest hops, but there is no unbridled bitterness because the malt taste comes through to uphold an unparalleled consistency. Each sip is liquid gold, to match the color of this perfected brew.

Ferris (2946) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 6, 2013
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.

gvmdw7 (186) - California, USA - JUL 23, 2013
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?

devman171 (880) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Pours hazy golden with low carb, aroma is floral and pine. Taste is balanced with light bitter finish, nice IPA

Jjg226 (71) - Staten Island, New York, USA - JUL 10, 2013
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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