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.

It is amazing that Alpine’s flavor came from such a larger brewhouse/system... This is a fantastic IPA. Big rich, tropical notes - mango, guava - grapefruit and a hint of pine - it also has that unexplainable sweet smell that Alpine does. Only thing it is lacking a tad is the slight creamy mouthfeel they get to balance the big hops. Fantastic, I am taken aback.

651mL from Stateline Liquors. Pours chill hazed orange with a large, creamy, rocky, off-white foam. Thick and dense. Good retention. Nose is very fruity hoppy, cantaloupe, pineapple, moving to some dust and cheese that it will no doubt devolve into in a few weeks. Taste is sweet, sticky, spicy, rich, thicker mango pulp. Nice one. Some sweet, white alcohol. Palate is bitter, fruity, dense.

Clear golden/copper from tap, no head to speak of. Huge grapefruit nose, some pine. Big bitter flavor melds with grapefruit and other floral notes. Bitter throughout. Nice brew for a hop lover.

Bottle pours bright orange with a medium rocky white head, lots of lacing. Aroma is huge tropical fruits and citrus. Mango, apricot, pineapple, grapefruit and orange. Flavor is the same but with very subdued bitterness. Just big juicy fruity hops. I still dig it.

BigBeer45 (1326) - Michigan, USA - SEP 1, 2012
Bottle from Champanes sampled in a large tulip glass, this IPA2 had a clear gold pour with burnt orange at the sides of the glass, it had a three finger white and faint off-white head that receded to a thin cover and sticky ring, it left nice spots and fingers of lacing on the glass, there were aromas of grapefruit, citrus, resin and herb hops, toasted malt, faint bread and orange fruit in the background, it had flavors of citrus and resin hops with toasted malt, grapefruit and lemon with a little quava, the finish had a good hop bitterness and dryness that pushes along to a touch of herb, hop bite was felt for a while after each drink, the mouth feel was light to medium with average carbonation, this beer had a nice hoppy nose with a little herb, this beer had a decent hop bitterness, and presented a lot of hops to enjoy, hop heads will enjoy.

660ml bottle from a trade, thanks stawn!

Pours light clear orange with a small bubbly head. Fresh fruity aroma with notes of grassy hops, pine, citrus and lemon. Taste is malty and hoppy with fresh fruity notes, grass, pine and citrus. Sweetish finish is hoppy and biscuity malty with some alcohol burning through. Lots of fruity and grassy hops, citrus and pine. Tasty, but not as perfectly balanced as the other Alpines.
