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.

brokensail (11599) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 17, 2012
Pours a clear orange color with a white head. Pineapple, mango, and lots of peach. Really heavy on the pungent grapefruit and orange. Some floral aromas, a touch of toffee. A weird graham cracker sweetness, mild toffee, and a moderate bitterness. Heavily fruity hops, some grapefruit, tangerine, peach, and mango. Not bad, but nowhere near as good as I was expecting.

Bottle @ home. Hazy dark appearance with a cream colored head. One whiff and you realize this is a motherfucking Alpine beer. OMGZ. Super fucking rich, grapefruit, big resiny, marijuana, thick resiny, spicy hoppy, perfect aroma. 10 all you motherfuckers. Perfecto. Somewhat chewy, a bit toasty malty, a touch yeasty, big grapefruity, marijuana, resiny/piney hoppy flavor. One whiff or one taste and you know this is an Alpine beer and it’s just beautiful. Not sure what the New Belgium contribution is but this just smells and tastes like an amazing, aromatic, beautiful Alpine Double IPA. Best collaboration thus far by New Belgium. Delicious tasty stuff. Thank you, Alpine for making your deliciousness local to Colorado.
