So I went to Pizza Port Carlsbad planning to log my official 100th ratebeer rating... I saw this up on the board and had to get a pint. Pale amber pour with a thin white head. Beautiful aroma of fresh cut grass, pine needles, and freshly broken citrus rind. The mouthfeel of this brew is awesome. Pleasant hop bite but smooth malty feel. This is probably the freshest tasting hops that I’ve ever had. Juicy pine and citrus flood the palate followed by steady flow of caramel and orange. Best IPA to date and a pleasant surprise for rating #100. Well done Alpine.

Draft at Alpine, and bottle to glass. Pours a mostly clear deep golden color with an off white head. Aroma has a solid juicy hop character. Flavor is quite juicy with kind of a candy-like middle, probably from the oak chips. Solid, but by no means my favorite IIPA.

Marheb (4585) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 23, 2015
(Bouteille): Un liquide en santé avec une belle mousse immortelle et une arôme puissante de thé noir, chair d’orange, miel floral et écorce de chêne. En bouche, tout est là avec en prime une vanille grasse que se colle à la gomme de pin. Les poignards d’éthanol étaient beaucoup plus présent à la première qu’à la deuxième minute. Buvabilité anachronique,

Bacterial (2776) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - MAY 7, 2015
Amber pour with a white head. Bottle shared by Long - thanks!! Slightly malty nose and a brilliant fruitiness. Massive fruity hip character, slight bitterness, mouthfeel is on the thick side. Nice.

Bomber to tulip. Opaque amber. Immediate floral taste with hoppy bitters after. Surprisingly drinkable.

sonnycheeba (4919) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 16, 2015
Bottle thanks to snoworsummer. Pours somewhat hazy, bright amber with white head. Aroma is mango, pineapple, dank, floral notes, faint caramel, faint oak, light toast, and some citrus peel. Flavor is extremely smooth and balanced given the hop content and ABV; bready and caramel malt base with layered floral and grassy hops along with tons of citrus esters. Medium body and carbonation.

Bottle from wheresyourball. Pours a cloudy copper color. Aroma is hops, some alcohol, and some oak. Taste follows with resin hops, oak in the finish. Pretty smooth considering it 11 abv. This one could sneak up on you. Tasty beer.
