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.

phaleslu (7546) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 4, 2012
22 oz. bottle. Pours a clear orange-gold with a big off-white head that laces the glass. Aroma of herbal, oily hops, sweet malts, and tangerine citrus. Flavor of caramel malts, sugar, and the same citrusy and herbal hops. Medium-bodied, with an oily, citrusy, malty mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Really nice DIPA- not surprising, since Alpine is involved.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - SEP 3, 2012
Serving: 22 oz. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a clear amber color with a nice off white head. The nose is super tropical with lots oí hops. Tons of sticky tropical and pine notes in the flavor. Straight up IIPA goodness. Reminds me of Two Hearted back in itís heyday without the sweet body. Fuckiní nice.

crossovert (9207) - Illinois, USA - SEP 3, 2012
650ml bottle. IT pours a clear apple cider gold with a fizzy white head that leaves dots of lacing but isnít particularly pretty. The smell is tropical, a hint of heirloom tomato. Noticeable grain. The flavor has some sugar cookie elements along with a tangy hoppiness. Tropical, low bitterness. Super super sweet. Boozy. Not a huge fan.

Narnad (1503) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - SEP 3, 2012
Pours a clean, golden color with a tall, dense creamy head. Aroma has a strong pine and grapefruit nose. Very tasty, great pine bitterness hits first with some fresh hop leaf bitterness to fill the middle and a modest grapefruit acidity to finish the brew off. Body has a modest amount of mouth feel with a sharp fizzy bite and an overall dryness too it. Overall a very enjoyable brew. Pine was perfect and the mouthfeel of the brew fits the style to a "T".

kaser (4087) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 3, 2012
Orange pour. Draft at sheffields. Sticky white head. Was warm but still good. Not sure if that is on purpose. Floral citrus and fruity taste. Really good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at SL.... Great nose... Bursting with grapefruit, oranges, mango and other tropical fruits... Taste follows the nose... Lots of mango, grapefuit, piney but not super bitter but some how still hoppy while maintaining balance. Texture is light and the easy to drink. More of a pale ale than an IPA... Alcohol is well hidden but warming. Overall: Cant get enough of this... classic west coast DIPA that I love.
