COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Alpine might be small, but their brewing chops are mighty. We teamed up to create this triple dry-hopped imperial IPA bursting with Columbus, Amarillo, Centennial and Simcoe hops. Consider yourself a hero for getting an Alpine beer outside of San Diego.

Great golden color. Beautiful aromas of honey and toasted malt, are highlighted with fresh herbs, rosemary and tropical citrus nuances. Great integration of aromas. The palate is rich and smooth, with multiple layers. Lower carbonation adds to the concentration and overall fuller impression. Complex layers of hops and malt intermingle on the palate. Flavors of sweet, honeyed malts, caramel and tropical yellow fruit, transition to layers of fresh herbs, resin, and pine. The hoppy finish lingers without bitterness. A super IPA! --- tasted while on a long journey to understand the world around me...

hotstuff (4229) - Indiana, USA - NOV 15, 2014
Rated on 02-02-2013 (Bottle) This beer pours a small smooth white head that is mostly lasting, transparent golden body, very fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is pine, earthy hops and caramel malt. The flavor is pine hops, bitter, alcohol and caramel malt. The mouthfeel is lively and this beer is medium bodied. The ABV comes through in the flavor and this is a hop head beer.

"Citrus and slight tropical fruit abounds in this sticky yet very drinkable double ipa. though intensely flavored, didnt think this was a 9% brew. Very fresh, very good. Alpine and NB know what they’re doing with the hoppy stuff."

Pours clear golden color with white head. Pine, citrus, and floral notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Just an average IPA, nothing special.

stantheman (675) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 23, 2014
On tap at St Augustine’s in Vancouver. A medium amber ale, with a bit of white head. No mention of peppers in the listed description, but they are sure by gosh there! They combine mightily well with the hop brigade to provide a very interesting diversion from the usual swill. Well done!

Horrible horrible beer. Curry flavored ipa which is really sweet and coco nutty. Smells like coconut and pours a light yellow. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2012 bottle and on tap: pours golden with a light white head. The hops are amazing. Bright citrus along with piney resin flavor. Malt is balanced. As with anything from Alpine, a great beer!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

harrymel (1503) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Been looking forward to this one... Pours a nice toasted golden with a steady fine white foam sheet with central dome. Smells of sweet pine, resin, grapefruit, sweet malts and hints of alcohol. Smells solid enough to drink. Not mind blowing, but very nice. Flavor is sweet, biscuity malts, bitterness, oranges, grapefruit meat, cotton candy, and some peaches. Medium bodied on slight syrup with low carb and a slight, warm finish. This beer is nice, and I enjoy it. Strong work between the two and a good buy while available. Serving type: bottle 09-04-2012

Funny name, somewhat 1970s. Massive aroma with so much pine (I get what others note about resin) that it becomes vegetable-like...onion, maybe a bit chemical, too. Good appearance with hazy yellow/peach, white head. The flavor didn’t end too badly, actually. Long finish. Reasonably well rounded. Shared with a neighbor in celebration of my wife’s 43rd birthday. Happy birthday, honey! Bottle.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours gold with a white head. Taste citrus, pine, bitter. I thought this was good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at falling rock. This is a bright yellow gold with a nice head. Smells of straight up hoppy goodness lots of citrus an a bit o pine. Flavor is bitter pine rezsin and clementines. Finishes with a lingering sweet and grassy citrus.
