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.

ksurkin (1021) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - SEP 11, 2012
22oz bottle, dated 7/29/12, from grape & gourmet. pours hazy, pale gold capped by a dense, pillowy white head with solid retention that leaves sticky rings of lace. aroma is outstanding, definitely an Alpine IPA, with huge notes of honeydew and cantelope melon rind, tangerine, and pink grapefruit backed by tropical notes of mango, pineapple syrup, and passionfruit with hints of vanilla flowers, fresh cut spruce, and dank grass. flavor is delicious as well with the sweet melon notes from the aroma taking a backseat to orange-pineapple juice, mango, guava, and passionfruit (yeah, it’s really tropical) with big, bitter, spruce/evergreen notes, floral esters, and subtle honey and vanilla sweetness on the back end. palate is medium bodied with a "juicy" mouthfeel and a lingering, tropical fruit and bitter pine finish. overall, a great dipa.

I really liked it when it was cold but as it set it became less and less appealing to me.

fiulijn (18101) - 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 (10532) - 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 (5399) - 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 (7187) - 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 (981) - 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 (655) - People’s Republic of Bloomington, Indiana, 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.
