4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
At common table with Colin, Jacob, Justin, and friends. Pours golden yellow with layer of white head. Aroma is strong fantastic awesome very delicate floral fruity hops. Reminds me of exponential hoppiness, taste is dry, awesome full flavored hops that envelope the palet. This is an absolutely exceptional ipa.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured up on tap at the brewery where it exhibits a clear pale gold body that supports a near white head that leaves behind some spotty lacing. The aroma is a juicy mix of mango, cantaloupe and lime as well as having a thin onion spicy hop edge to it. This smells Nelson-ish as it gets slightly white wine like at the end of the draw. The taste is thick rich Nelson goodness supported by sweet clean thin maltiness where notes of tangelo, mango and cantaloupe fruitiness bubbling up along with just a sliver of sweet white wine grape sensation to midway. Toward the finish it picks up resiny almost onion like earthy hoppy notes that inject short spikes of bitterness into the involved juiciness thatís going on here. This is every bit Alpine Nelson that I have ever had. Is it better . . .

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours gold with a thick white head. Aroma of grapefruit, pine, orange peel and freshly milled grain. Taste is grapefruit, slight pine, slightly sweet malt but mostly a hop bomb. So good, in my top 5 IPAs

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
So the appearance is your typical golden slightly hazy with ample fluffy white head that leaves soapy lacing everywhere.
Aroma is grapes and gooseberries right away followed by Meyer lemon and citrus and a nice delicate floral aroma similar to cherry blossom. I do also smell a decent amount of alcohol which lowers the score only slightly.
Taste, wow, right away I get the sweet malt but it doesnít taste like malt, more fruit like dark grapes and gooseberry followed by a nice citrus wave led by the meyer lemon and some orange zest. The finish is slightly bitter with a wheat and yeast taste, I really didnít feel any alcohol burn on the finish, so I was guessing it was around 7% alc however it is 8.4% and sneaks up on you quick.
Nice ample soapy carbonation cleans the palate well, a very nice medium body IPA with some interesting flavors integrated into it.

"Has the strength of a double, but not showing any alcohol. Fairly sweet with a bitter fruity finish. Fairly standard, fresh ipa...above average but not among the elite. 2013-Brewery fresh I gotta say this was pretty damn good. Stinky hops, light for the abv. Good stuff! I can admit when Iím wrong :)"

On tap. Clear golden with a fizzy white head. Huge grapefruit vanilla caramel and pine aroma and taste with an exquisite balance between the candy like sweet flavors and a musty bitterness. Very good.

Pours pale yellow with a thick white pillowy head. The nose is fresh pine needles, hay fields, lemony grapefruit and some light tropical fruit. The taste is well balanced medium sweet and bitter. Super refreshing. The texture is crisp at first but sticky and drying later. The body is light to medium with a long finish. Wow. These guys make some kick add IPAs.
