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.

Bottle pours a hazy golden/amber color with a thin white top. Scent is big citrus and pine at first then sweet malt and fruit. Taste is grassy with sweet citrus and pine. Very good.

22oz bottle picked up in Ft. Collins for $5.99 which is a pretty good deal for a double IPA these days. I was real excited when I heard about this collaboration because I think Alpine is producing some of the best IPAís in the business. This really tastes and smells like an Alpine beer which is awesome. Bright orange color, huge head, huge lacing on the sides of my New Belgium snifter (I donít have any Alpine glasses). Smells dank, stinky, melon rinds, cat piss, green, spicy, black pepper. Flavor is heavy melon rind, canteloupe rind, juicy fruits, hint of black pepper and a bitter finish. This beer reminded me a lot of Pure Hoppiness and Exponential Hoppiness, I think it is the melon rind aspect. This is a real winner and easily the best IPA New Belgium has produced.

Two of my favorite breweries really came up with something special. Probably the best collaboration Iíve ever tasted. Alpineís specialty is hop flavor blending for perfectly balanced IPAs. New Belgium brings a mastery of texture, carbonation and clarity. The combination is spectacular. An extraordinarily balanced IPA.

Had this on tap at the Press Room in Bentonville. Pours goldish with two fingers of white head. Aroma is slight grapefruit and some malt. Flavor is malty with nice grapefruit. Really a very nice beer. Almost my ideal IPA.

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2012 Holy crap. This beer is amazing. On draft at toronado SD. I havenít had an ipa in this realm of awesome since rogerís last stand. The hop flavors come at you hard without any of that bitterness. Just the right amount of maltiness for this style Of beer. If I wanted something less malty I would have ordered a Nelson. Anyways, this gets extra points for being possibly the easiest "alpine" beer to get a hold of. Drink it fresh obviously. If the hops fade this beer wonít be nearly as tasty *re-rating this* 8/14 The hops have either dropped some, or that first keg I had last week was some miracle batch. While not one of the most mindblowingly good IPAs Iíve ever had anymore, it is still amazing. Iím a hophead obviously, so I probably went overboard when I first had it. Either way, awesome IPA, if we werenít so spoiled with Alpine already, Iíd be seeking this out by the case.

Pour out of 22 oz bottle, big thanks to Aaron! Clear orange with nice fluffy white head, aroma has notes of big weed and dank notes, pine and resinous notes, grapefruit peel, orange, lemon peel, lots of tropical fruit as well. Wow. Taste is big sweet orange, toffee, some white dank fruits, some slight pine, finishing with more hop notes, big citrus notes come through. I could drink a lot of this.

Pours a transparent golden color with white head / Strong pine and citrus in the nose / not as bitter as expected, actually kind of a sweet taste / very good beer overall and the 9% alcohol is hidden nicely

Pours a hazy amber with a fairly small head. A lot of hops to the aroma without overpowering the nose. Good level of hops, though balanced well to cut the bitterness.
