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.

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.

slowrunner77 (9212) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 10, 2015
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...

DiarmaidBHK (4054) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 4, 2015
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 (1646) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 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.

7/12/2011 11:52:39 AM Bottle from Brattleboro Food Co-op. Fantastic. Nice hazy amber body with huge head. Nose of pines and fruits, grapefruit at that. Taste is also very heavenly hops and pines. Nice fruit tastes. Really, really good.

migwell (271) - Northampton, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 26, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2016 On tap at the Foundry, served in a tulip. Very nice, well rounded IPA, priced out of the competitive range, however for what it is and how many similar offerings are available. Certainly this IPA smells amazing. Very citrusy, strong smell of oranges and slight bitterness of grapefruit. Smells just like sweet orange juice. Citrus abounds and equals the flavor of some left coast favorites and it has a decent mildly bitter finish. Quite drinkable.

ElManana (1672) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - SEP 25, 2015
Bottle thanks to a trade. Bitter, but very tropical with a very nice malty backbone to balance it out. Great beer, loved every sip of it.

Scopey (11525) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2015
Tap at the brewery. It pours clear gold with a small white head. The nose is soft, juicy, clean, tropical fruit action, peach, tangerine and mango. The taste is crisp, clean, bitter, light minerals, bitter orange, peach, apricot, grapefruit, straw and some grass with a dry, peppery finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Crisp, clean, bitter and fruity. Very drinkable stuff. Tasty.

Cloudy goldenrod, ample white head. Big fresh notes of pine resin, grapefruit. Some lighter tropical fruits. Quite bitter, very muted malt character. Dry. Oily mouthfeel, strongish effervescence, medium body. Finish really lingers. Excellent.
