Our “East Coast” version of a West Coast-style IPA. Intense hop flavors and aromas of tropical and citrus fruits and pine dominate. A subtle malt sweetness brings the beer into balance.

Aroma and look of this beer are top notch. One of the best overall IPAs I’ve ever had. Wish i could get this near me, but no such luck.

on tap @ Vino Bellissimo / Lima OH --- Clear light amber color, white head, curtain of lace. Aroma of hops and malt. Taste is clear malt, then light fizz and citrus hops on the swallow, drifting from there to a nice long hoppy finish. A solid IPA, pretty much hop dominated, but still well done.

Pour is a clear copper with a large and long-lasting fluffy tan head. Big yeast slug means that the final pour comes out hazy. The aroma is all sweet citrus. Flavor is more balanced, lots of citrus but also some yeast fruitiness, sweet malt. Fades to an aftertaste of pine and lemon. Soft and frothy mouthfeel with a clean finish. Good stuff, definitely agree with the West Coast deScriptor.

Taste is tropical, citrus, and caramel. Tons of fresh fruit flavors and some pine. Mouthfeel is creamy and juicy. One of the best ipa’s I have ever had.

On tap @ Whole Foods WL Chicago. Pour is hazy amber with a very small white head that fades quickly. Aroma and flavor are dominated by intense hops - pine, grapefruit, grass, and straw. Finish is similar with some slight booze coming through.

Lunch on tap at Gallo’s Tap Room enjoyed October 22, 2015. Look - Clear gold. Thin head from bar pour yet rings leaves nice lacing. Smell - Pine. Orange. Grapefruit. Wheat. Grass. Taste - Resinous pine. Bitter. Citrus is subdued in taste. Feel - Carbonated from tap. Rips tongue. Not what I’d call easy drinking but expected. Overall - First Lunch to hit Ohio. I’d like to try Mo, Peeper, or Another One but figured I’d go with the mainstay. Classic IPA with a pine/bitter edge.

BOD 9/29/15. Almost clear yellow golden pour. World class head volume, lacing and retention. Outstanding nose of zest (orange, lemon and slight grapefruit), a touch of spruce spiciness and a biscuit base. Light medium body that has a slightly smooth texture. Slightly below normal carbonation with a bit of effervescence in the middle and a stronger finish. The flavor profile is quite outstanding - reasonable intensity, complex and perfectly balanced. It is hop flavor, rather than bitterness, oriented. It begins with a blend of hop flavors indicated by the nose, with general zest being the most dominate. The middle is fairly bitter, but a bit light for an IPA. Bitterness is perfectly balanced with a subtle biscuit that never becomes sweet. The finish is a bit dry and hop flavor/bitterness lingers. As the finish fades, the spicy spruce aspects are at their strongest and tangerine notes are noted.

Lemon and pine dominated nose and flavor. A touch more bitter than the Trilliums or the Treehouse. 4th for me in that line-up, but that’s by no fault - still an awesome brew. All 8.5’s...

Sample at taproom. Pours golden with a thin white head. Leaves a lot of lacing in the glass. Not getting a lot on the nose. Big floral and grapefruit on the tongue. Finished clean. Solid but not feeling it as much as another one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

skmikeg (1472) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - OCT 2, 2015
Pours medium orange with a one finer white head with excellent lacing. Aroma is of citrus (mainly grapefruit), pine, tropical fruits, light grassy hops, and some light bready malts. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma. Has a medium body with a creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, moderately bitter, long finish. Overall, a fantastic west coast style IPA that tastes like something you would expect Alpine to brew.
