If you’re content with grabbing a six-pack of mega-brew from your local convenience store, quit reading this now. If, however, you’ve somehow become addicted to the flowers of the Humulus lupulus, you may have finally met your match. Alpine Beer Company has raised the bar for hop aroma, nose, mouthfeel and aftertaste. Opening a bottle of Pure Hoppiness is like spraying an aromatherapy can in the area -- except instead of lavender and jasmine, the air becomes filled with a citrusy-floral aroma which invites you to investigate and discover the pot of gold at the end of the brown glass bottle.

Taster at the Alpine Brewing company pub. I can’t sense much aroma because it’s a taster and ai did not get a full glass. Golden clear color. Taste is grassy, citrus bitter hops, grapefruit, good maltiness. Well balanced. Boozy. A nice imperial IPA.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Visual: Pours deep copper orange with a small but lasting foamy head, sticky lacing, lots of steady clustered streams.
Nose: peachy-grapefruity citrus hop oils. (lvl-6)-pungency - (optimal at cellar temp)
Attack: crisp, thick and smooth mouthfeel
Mid-palate: tangerine hop oils, (lvl-4-sweetness), toffee’d barley malt, subdued zingy alcohol
Finish: big-rounded orange citrusy hopped bitterness, dry grassiness, clean finish
Summary: Seemingly simple yet it’s because it is so balanced. What surprised me was how superbly sippable this was - the hops linger just long enough, without being overly harsh at any point. Very nice.

Dimmig orange öl med ett smutsvitt skum. Doft av karamell, fruktighet och tallbarr. I smaken tillkommer grapefrukt och kåda i eftersmaken. Bra balans mellan sötma och beska.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Strong dry-hopped aroma of pine, spice and some citrus. It hits all marks, honestly. Not so bitter that it masks other flavors. Some earthiness and a mild sweetness. Decent color and weight.

Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. Hazy, bright golden coloured with a thin white head of foam. It has a very rich orange marmalade and pine flavour with smooth toffee notes and more warming orange on the finish. Superb!

This beer had a lovely hop taste without a intense bite. The aroma of citrus greets you at first encounter. This beer is a delight, I’d recommend it to everyone.
