4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap in Seattle. Pours a yellow orange with a nice fluffy head. Aroma is hops! along with a nice malty aroma that I generally associate with alpine. The taste is amazing, it lives up to Alpines reputation of amazing IPAs. There’s not much else to say about this except to try it if you’re lucky enough to find it.

On tap at Rozi’s. $14 growler. Smell is very dank, has green flash written all over it from the begining. Nice golden color, solid off white head. Flavor is more dank hops, weed, grass, resin. There is a hint if new belgiums fruitiness. Some malt in there and some savory garlic-food thing. Nice, good and drinkable.

1.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
On tap at the magic tree, nice place for tasting rare beers on tap. OK, so whats the up with super? Does that mean better behaved or more like a rude? Go figger. next is ultra ipa. Looks like any other beer, pale yellow. Has typical low co2 feel on the tongue;. Mouth coating fresh oily feel, like liquid soap. BO on the aroma, such a contemporary ipa thang. Bittermedicine on the tongue what else can be said? Super or not this is terrible on ipa style. Green chewing on rinds grapefruit. Not as rude as most ipa but make no mistake, this is kick ass. Probably least appreciative beer today.

Pours pale yellow with thick white head. Aroma of citrus, stone fruit, and wheat. Taste is stone fruit, citrus, cherry, melon. Very smooth and refreshing. No booze at all. Very dangerous. Mouthfeel is medium. Overall excellent triple IPA. One of the best

On tap at PreFunk. Hop resin rules the day, overload of pine, dry sappy bitterness. Slightly hazy pour with small creamy white head. Hops on the nose and full force in the taste. Dry sweet finish. This is what IPAs are all about.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rated on 02-02-2013 (Bottle) This beer pours a small smooth white head that is mostly lasting, transparent golden body, very fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is pine, earthy hops and caramel malt. The flavor is pine hops, bitter, alcohol and caramel malt. The mouthfeel is lively and this beer is medium bodied. The ABV comes through in the flavor and this is a hop head beer.

"Citrus and slight tropical fruit abounds in this sticky yet very drinkable double ipa. though intensely flavored, didnt think this was a 9% brew. Very fresh, very good. Alpine and NB know what they’re doing with the hoppy stuff."
