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.

Blairgus (2932) - California, USA - SEP 14, 2012
14 sept 2012, bottle. Light gold, clear, steady tiny bubbles. Nose is pine, seaweed, orange juice. Med body and faintly fizzy. Taste is is resin, pine cones, light malt. A bit too harsh for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pine needles smell with a hint citrus. Sweet refreshing with not as big of a bitter as you would imagine, doesn't stick around. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great color, head and lacing. Huge aroma - should get a 10 but... the skunky, oniony aromas from Amarillo and Simcoe hops overwhelm the more desirable citrus, pine and floral notes from the Columbus and Centennial. This also comes through in the flavor. I would like to love this beer. It would get about a 4.7 without the nasty hops.

toxichop (419) - South Gate, California, USA - AUG 31, 2012
A: pine and limes, grapefruit some pineapple. P: light copper with a thin head. T: Pine, pineapple, mango, green onions and hint of limes. Noticable alcohol, with a strong caramel backbone and has a peppery finish. Finishes dry and bitter. M: light body soft carbonation. O: Maybe cause I have been drinking saisons and wit’s I found this to be strong on bitterness and alcohol. None the less both of this companys make better beer apart.

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 20, 2012
Draught. Nose is floral and slightly citrusy hops. A touch soapy. Clear gold with a light head. Bold but not over the top, definitely light in bitterness until the finish. Sweet, citrusy, with peach and apricot tones. Soapy in the flavor too. Medium body. Lingering bitterness.

Dodgrblu (653) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 27, 2012
On tap at Capitol Beer and Taproom, medium disappearing head. Resinous aroma, taste is the same, though it falls a bit flat. Too mainstream?

Look: Golden honey orange, white lacing. Smell: Dank, mild passion fruit, orange peel, little onion, resinous pine, alcohol. Taste: Dank pine, resin, tropical fruits, earthy, heat, lemon oil, grass, alcohol sweetness, citrus/pine bitterness that lingers for a while. Feel: Medium-light, soft carbonation. Overall: The aroma on this is excellent. The flavor profile is off centered by the alcohol sweetness (This is why I usually dislike most DIPA’s). This could be great if the sweetness was more mellow.

Treebs (872) - , Illinois, USA - OCT 20, 2012
22 oz. bottle served in a DFH signature glass. A: Pours a nice caramel amber color with a thick, one inch height of pure white foam forming on the pour. A sticky webbing of lace is left down the glass. S: Man there’s a lot going on. Tropical and citrus notes with some bursts of pine and some peppery spice. A nice dose of caramel and white bread malts even it out. T: More caramel malt heavy with some bigger emphasis on the pine and earthy hops. Minimal dirty hop cone with some sweet bready malts on the finish. Very light on the tropical notes I smelt earlier. The booze is well hidden though. M: Medium bodied. A little sticky with nice carb. Drinkability is slightly above average. O: I liked the nose quite a bit, but the flavor profile in the taste was much more malt forward and it lacked some of the citrus and tropical notes in the nose. The alcohol is well hidden though. I was was expecting a little more from this given the Alpine Collab, but it seems more like New Belgium beer. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 09-14-2012
