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.

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

Thanks to nicks6217 for this one as a bonus. Cheers, Nick! Pours a nice orange-yellow with a white head. Nose is some caramel with syrupy citrus apricot, and maybe some peach. Flavor delivers that same hop burst with syrupy citrus and a thick body. A bit syrupy for me, but a decent hop punch.

rxeight (2580) - Illinois, USA - OCT 9, 2012
Let me start off saying Im not a fan of NB. Everything Ive had from them is sub par. However I heard a lot of good things about this so I figured Id give it a whirl. Pours a light gold color with a thick white head. Very light in color and transparent for the style. Berr gets downgraded for looking like miller lite. But it all changes at the aroma. Has a big hop aroma. Mostly pine and spruce smells, maybe a touch of citrius. Huge hop taste. A bit of bitterness but not harsh. Id say this is a really good beer.

Atom (2156) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 16, 2012
Bomber pours a clear orange/copper with a medium khaki head. Aroma of resinous hops, pine, citrus, and dry caramel malt. Taste of resinous pine spice, with bready caramel malt, pumpkin seed, with a spicy bitter finish. Not amazing but still a pretty nice DIPA, solid for the price though.

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 (597) - 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 wits 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.
