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.

bhensonb (13848) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 27, 2012
Bomber from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours amber/gold with a foamy 2 finger white head. Aroma is pine/citrus. Simcoe. Med plus body. Flavor is very bittingly hoppy. Pine/citrus with perhaps some floral. It’s strongly flavored. It finishes extremely bitter. It can stand up proud against NW DIPAs. Very tasty.

mcberko (13492) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 23, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2012 Pint on tap at Elizabeth Station, pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma is super pungent, with floral hops, hemp, orange rinds and resinous hops - barely enough caramel malt to back. Flavour is insanely intense, with relentless hoppiness, loads of floral notes and truckloads of hempy / pot-like hops reveal themselves as you get into this; secondary notes of citrus peel / citrus rind; and barely enough malt to hold this together without diminishing the hop presence. Very intense and delicious, though almost *too* over the top!

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured clear copper color with an average to large frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy complex earth hop aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy smooth bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is an interesting beer.

(Draught) Pours a clear orange body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of orange, mango, caramel, sugary syrup, and grain. Flavor of grain, orange, toffee, caramel, peach, sugary, and grapefruit. Way too sweet for me.

Ferris (12147) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 8, 2012
Draft - As a good friend would say ’juicy’, absurd amount of fruits with hints of mandarin. A bit of spice to contrast the sweetness on the nose. Peppery to start in the taste leading to full on pine and more of the mandarin. The complexity of this beer is amazing, and has to be one of the best I have had in some time.

Drake (11499) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 26, 2012
Bomber from Whole Foods Market Charlottesville. Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized frothy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of herbal and spicy hops with some resin and faint pale malts. The taste is intensly hoppy... as I was hoping... with spicy, peppery, herbal, citrus and resin notes. Some caramel malts also. Medium bodied, lingering bitterness, very low heat. Nice beer.
