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.

Backlog. On tap at Hops & Pie. Gold and clear appearance with a lacy white head. Resinous and piney hops in the aroma. Medium to heavy bitterness in the flavor. Pretty tasty, but I remember enjoying it more when it first came out.

Draft at public house in Ghent. So happy to have stumbled back across this! Been a few years. Aroma is a beautiful floral tropical fruit hops and a candy sweetness. Thick fleshy fruit tropical fruit hops in the flavor. Light to medium in body with a long lingering tropical fruit hops. Amazing IPA! Definitely thanks to alpines contribution.
