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.

rumproasts (2879) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - DEC 19, 2012
bottle. light amber with two finger head. I was expecting more hops, but this is really good. it’s not going to rip your head off with the hop bite, but the flavor is excellent.

Dogbrick (8002) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 18, 2012
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.

Tmoney99 (10585) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 15, 2012
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.

Botella. Bit unclear golden colour. Herbal sweet fruity hoppy aroma. Good mouthfeel. Sweet caramel hoppy fruity spiced like flavour. Great bitterness indeed. Dry. .

jefcon (1382) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - DEC 10, 2012
Bitter, but lush and round on the impressive citrus, pine, soap hops in this super IPA. The hops are well-integrated into a big beer without delivering a slick, saturated palate. The supporting cast is essential, and the caramel malt delivers just enough sweetness to accentuate the acidity of the hopping.

Ferris (3919) - 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.

BK7 (732) - Turner, Oregon, USA - DEC 8, 2012
On tap at Venti’s downtown. Solid bitterness throughout dominated by tropical fruit and pine. Sticky sweet and resiny. Solid IPA finish with a light alcohol burn. Tasty.

Braudog (5647) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Bottle. Pure amber color, with a sticky, lasting head. You have to whiff really, really hard to evoke much of an aroma here, but this drinks wtih a good West coast, pine sap-laden, earthy, hoppy character. Makes your mouth sticky. (#4848, 12/8/2012)
