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.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5140) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 9, 2013
From the February 2013 3R6P tasting. +++ Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a bright golden color with a large creamy yellow-white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was sweetish pineapple, tropical fruits and sugar. The flavor was sweet and yeasty with notes of pineapple, tropical fruits and sugar and touches of pepper and herbal hops underneath. Long finish of pineapple , tropical fruits, sugar and yeast. Moderately full bodied. Excellent.

From notes. Loads of pine and citrus in the aroma. Taste is kinda of weak.

From 22 ounce bottle. Grassy, pungent aroma. Bold citrus and grapefruit taste with a bitter finish, almost too much. Floral aftertaste.

Yellow orange color, small head and good lacing. Smells of lemon and grass. Taste grapefruit and pine needle. Bitter but not too bad. Good mouthfeel. Hides alcohol well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cobra (1100) - - JAN 12, 2013
22 oz. brown bomber bottle. Poured out a hazy tangerine color, with no head at all. Sticky lacing left down the side of the glass. Aromas are hops. Pine trees, not the real kind, but those things you stick in your car to cover up a puke smell are dominant. Sickening resin flavors ruin what could have been a decent beer. No malt aromas or flavors. A hop bomb for certain. Alcohol is well hidden. Tastes like licking a rusty can lid. Not my cup of tea for sure.

Grassy aroma, tastes of grapefruit and seaweed. Small bodied, not very impressive

DialSquare (3035) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 3, 2013
Bomber from Cedar Bluff Discount Wine in Knoxville. Orange-gold pour with fluffy white head and lots of lacing. Aroma is citrus, grass and pine. Tastes are tropical fruit, citrus rind, light candied sugar, bread, sweet malts, grass, caramel. Moderately bitter. Nice creamy medium palate. Little dry in the finish. Very drinkable. Wish I had more.

llcooldave (1143) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - JAN 3, 2013
Clean toasty aroma like fresh toasted multigrain bread. Mixed in the nose is a piney citrus hops note. Pours in the glass looking like a classic continental pilsner albeit a bit darker golden. Flavor notes are the same as the aroma but with a distinct banana aftertaste. Overall, not bad... complex but easy.

backdaft (240) - Menasha Red Light District, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 2, 2013
Bomber. Pours a rich golden color with a nice creamy off white head. Aromas of orange, maybe tangerine (not grapefruit!) hops, some malt, and some funky cat piss? Dont be scared. Sweet citrus and pine hoppiness stand out. Add a little malt and spice to round things out. Medium mouthfel, somewhat slick. Nice.
