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.

Pour out of 22 oz bottle, big thanks to Aaron! Clear orange with nice fluffy white head, aroma has notes of big weed and dank notes, pine and resinous notes, grapefruit peel, orange, lemon peel, lots of tropical fruit as well. Wow. Taste is big sweet orange, toffee, some white dank fruits, some slight pine, finishing with more hop notes, big citrus notes come through. I could drink a lot of this.

3fourths (8549) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 24, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2012 bottle. clear orange with a fine white head and little retention. powerful orange and peach gelatin and pine resin nose with circulating notes of cedar shavings and rye seed. medium-low carbonation; medium-high sweetness; medium-high bitterness; medium acid; chewy and syrupy texture as expected of the style but the low carbonation is soft enough to keep things in place, texture-wise. pine shavings and resin dominate the hop flavor while toasted orange peel and tart peach linger underneath. about what you’d expect: big, bold, powerful and simple. not really my thing these days, but I can appreciate the effort.

DrSilverworm (8336) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 19, 2012
22oz bottle, $7 from Beer Run. Mostly clear golden color. Good dense off-white head, leaves good lace. Very interesting unique hop aroma. Something in it that’s new to me. Like a biscuit well-seasoned with strong herbs. Interesting, and pretty tasty. Smooth, lighter carbonation, creamy texture. Clean finish, but good long hoppy aftertaste. Nice big bitter taste, little alcohol bite in the finish and warmth in the aftertaste, little slightly zesty sweetness. Little stickiness in the finish. Satisfying and interesting DIPA.

deyholla (7969) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 11, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear golden orange with an off-white head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has a good amount of of dank pine with grapefrut and not much of a grain backbone. Flavor begins with grapefruit and bitter citrus that is joined by pine and onion.

Ferris (7560) - 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.

marcus (7453) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 27, 2012
On tap at Capitol Beer, Sacramento. Pours golden with a rich off-white head and a strong citrus aroma. There is a full-bodied caramel malt flavor that is totally dominated by simcoe hop bitterness. Though unbalanced, still a very tasty brew.

Ibrew2or3 (7420) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 19, 2012
OK, drank a shit ton of this on draft at Taste Of Tops in Tempe. It was irresistible. I’m only human, right? It was filled into a short tulip glass (on several occasions) with a clear copper body and thick gold edges supporting a semi firm light tan head of foam. The aroma offers up tangelo citrus and rich tropical mango fruit like notes with resiny grassiness here and there too. The taste is similar with vibrant rich tangelo, clementine citrus and mango-y tropical fruity notes that are infused with loads of hop flavor and grow into resiny to grassy hop bitterness from time to time. Wonderful brew.
