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.

Deuce bottle from kingmas market, Grand Rapids, MI. Golden opaque pour into pint glass. Minimal bright white average head. Smells like raw hops - super piney with a little citrus, pineapple and tangerine. Taste is all piney hops with a little melon. Surprisingly light for the ABV. Finish is really warm, and bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fiulijn (15990) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 5, 2015
Draught at Apex, Portland, as Alpine Super IPA
Hazy golden color. Some manure aroma. Good pale malt backbone, lean, only lightly sweet, with strong resiny hopping and some citrus fruit.
Excellent, easy to drink in the category, yet bold and hop-forward.

hopscotch (9954) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 12, 2015
Growler... Pours clear and amber with golden highlights and a small, creamy, white head. The aroma features a medley of tropical fruits and a note of orange blossom honey. Medium-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and jazzy carbonation. The flavor is juicy, fruity and bright, with a moderate measure of hoppy bitterness and a lesser ration of honey and biscuit sweetness. The mouth-watering finish is fruity and a touch sweet. Bottle courtesy of ctipping and/or landhoney!

Revo. Spicy, peach, pungent, sweet grapefruit, pine, chewy, tropics, just a massive avalanche of potent everything. Awesome. Just let it warm up!

reebtogi (4568) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 7, 2015
12oz tulip glass on tap at Beer Revolution’s Edmonton location pours a golden color with a finger of white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is tropical fruits with some grapefruit and light grains. Taste is a grapefruit hop bitterness with a tropical fruit and caramel malty sweetness. Medium bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, a high quality DIPA that is well balanced and tasty and definitely worth tasting.

gyllenbock (5352) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 6, 2015
On tap at Toronado SF. Golden with a small head. Really hoppy and fresh with tropical fruit, grapefruit and some light notes of caramel. The finish was nicely bitter and dry. A tasty one.

kbudd19 (820) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 31, 2015
Draft from a fresh growler fill pretty stoked to have stumbled onto this today. Cloudy yellow colour with light white head. Aroma is loaded with tropical fruits, citrus, pine, and peaches. Taste is light bitterness, followed by sticky tropical fruit, pine, with a bitter fruity finish, full bodied, lots of carbonation. Outstanding IIPA, great balance and drinakbility.

paintedmaple (494) - Fenton, Michigan, USA - JAN 25, 2015
Super indeed...fantastic aroma leads to a drink of earthy resinous pine forest. Also, a sticky candy like sweetness perfectly balances the hoppy bitterness. Finishes clean and leaves a lacing covering the glass top to bottom. Awesome.

Pint form Trail Head Tavern. Appearance: finger of white head, straw color, clear., good lacing. Aroma: pine, caramel, floral. Palate: light sticky finish, boozy warming, average carbonation, medium body. Taste: sweet caramel into pine and floral hops, with a heavier bitter pine. Overall, lovely pine hops component, well balance, very nice beer. Very pleasant surprise from NB for this style. Very happy.
