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.

jcr (2221) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JAN 1, 2013
Bottle. Deep yellow body with a frothy, off-white head, mostly lasting. Aroma of toasted grain, resin, sugar, soap. The flavor is moderately to heavily sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium to full body, creamy texture turning syrupy, lively carbonation. Lots of resinous hops that overshadow anything else that might be in this beer. Too sweet, rough, alcoholic in the finish.

Super indeed...fantastic aroma leads to a drink of earthy resinous pine forest. Also, a sticky candy like sweetness perfectly balances the hoppy bitterness. Finishes clean and leaves a lacing covering the glass top to bottom. Awesome.

Backlog. On tap at Hops & Pie. Gold and clear appearance with a lacy white head. Resinous and piney hops in the aroma. Medium to heavy bitterness in the flavor. Pretty tasty, but I remember enjoying it more when it first came out.

Draft at public house in Ghent. So happy to have stumbled back across this! Been a few years. Aroma is a beautiful floral tropical fruit hops and a candy sweetness. Thick fleshy fruit tropical fruit hops in the flavor. Light to medium in body with a long lingering tropical fruit hops. Amazing IPA! Definitely thanks to alpines contribution.

On tap at Ale Arsenal. Funk, dank and slight citrus. Clear gold with full white head that patterns down the glass nicely. Taste is pine and resin. High bitterness lingers late.
