4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer pours a clear pale orange color with a medium thick white head that diminishes slowly. Partial rings of lacing. The aroma consists of citrus and toasted malt. Medium to full body with flavors of hops, zesty citrus and malt undertones. Finishes moderately bitter with a grapefruit aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
IT pours a clear apple cider gold with a fizzy white head that leaves dots of lacing but isn’t particularly pretty.
The smell is tropical, a hint of heirloom tomato. Noticeable grain.
The flavor has some sugar cookie elements along with a tangy hoppiness. Tropical, low bitterness. Super super sweet. Boozy.
Not a huge fan.

Growler... Pours clear and amber with golden highlights and a small, creamy, white head. The aroma features a medley of tropical fruits and a note of orange blossom honey. Medium-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and jazzy carbonation. The flavor is juicy, fruity and bright, with a moderate measure of hoppy bitterness and a lesser ration of honey and biscuit sweetness. The mouth-watering finish is fruity and a touch sweet. Bottle courtesy of ctipping and/or landhoney!

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
