4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a 22oz bottle into a Dogfish Head Stemmed glass.
The color is a hazy dark orange with two fingers of foamy white head and some nice lacing left on the glass.
The smell is pretty piney and smells a bit like wet hops. Some nice citrus flavor is the background that is quite lemony in flavor and is a bit pithy.
The taste is bitter citrus hop flavor at first. There is a soft embrace of piney flavors with the hops in front and a nice malty flavor that finishes this beer off in the back. There is some interesting hits of sugary flavor that is a bit too sweet but overall the taste is really good.
The feel of this beet is medium bodied with some strong hop flavor that is strong but easy to handle. It goes down well and is just the right mix for a West Coast IPA.

Love visiting San Diego. Alpine is one of best at their IPAs this one is citrus pine and so fresh hoppy nature. Flavor is exceptionally fresh hops. Pine lingers on and on.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
22 oz. bomber poured into a snifter. Ripe orange body with a small, off-white head with loads of lacing. The head is gone quickly, though. Pungent citrus hop aroma. Grapefruit dominated with piney afterthoughts. Nary a hint of sweetness, but burnt caramel comes through with some nut aromas. Identical to the smell. Full-blown hop assault. Not as bitter as I would have expected. Grapefruit and pine hop flavors. Almost no sweetness at all. Nuts, caramel, and vanilla all come through in the malt backbone. Clean finish. Delicious. Medium body, light for its size. Drinkable. Unbelievably good IPA

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber via perkins. Clear light copper with an off white head that mostly fades. Somewhat sweet and lightly pungent hop aroma of grapefruit, old cheddar, papaya, dried orange rind, a booze presence that is well hidden but lends a lot of depth, smooth, moderate carbonation and full body, very dry, lots of citrus, long finish. Yummy.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz bottle. From the brewery.
Clear golden colour with a small white head. The aroma is superbly balanced sweet and grainy malt and dry and fruity hops. Great! And it goes on... the flavour is in perfect balance. Hoppy dryness, moderate bitterness and balancing maltiness. Absolutely great! After the disappointing Mandarin Nectar this really kicks in. Fabulous!
