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.

Concealer (890) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 24, 2012
Pours a nice orange/gold color. Medium, white head that goes away fast. Smells like a lot of hops with some citrus. Tastes about the same. It has a nice upfront of citrus finishes with a dry hoppy bitterness. Not bad. It grows on you too.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 24, 2012
On draft at Bruisin’ Ales in Asheville. Pours a bright light orange with a light foamy white head. Nose is resiny citrus hops, nearly pungent and hinting at a bit of sweetness. Super fresh and smells amazing. A bit sweet on the taste and sticky on the palate, but great for a small amount.

Bottle - Clear amber pour with a ring of white head. Nose is juicy citrus and tropical fruit, with light bready malt. Taste is the same with a bit more onion/garlic hops. Same clean bready malt. Slick and medium bodied, with ample carbonation.

Two of my favorite breweries really came up with something special. Probably the best collaboration I’ve ever tasted. Alpine’s 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.

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 IPA’s 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 don’t 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.
