3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
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.

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.

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.
