DougHnut70 (72) - Livermore, California, USA - FEB 21, 2013
Poured from a bomber. Clear, dark golden, small white head. Smell/taste of citrus (orange, grapefruit), pine, very hoppy with a slight fruity end. A very fresh and clean tasting beer, but a little thin. A lot of hops without being bitter, perfect for a single IPA @ 7%. I prefer Pure Hoppiness but this is right up there with Blind Pig, Alesmith IPA, Sculpin, etc.

Bottle. Gold in colour with slight haze and medium carbonation. Aromas of tangerine, pomelo, and pine sap. More tangerine on the palate, along with flavors of vanilla sugar cookie, pine, and mowed grass. Medium bodied with a black pepper-like bitterness. Decent, perhaps a touch stale.

thedm (6306) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 2, 2017
This bottled brew from a bottle shop was served at a cool temperature and poured a small sized head of foamy fine to medium sized white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a strongly carbonated body slightly hazy yellow orange colored body and a good lacing. The weak aroma was hoppy. semi-sharp with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of hops and malt. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

Block (2950) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - SEP 5, 2017
This is a very solid and well-rounded IPA. Good hops and alcohol which is complimented nicely by a sweet, but not overly sweet body. It's to the point and done well.

Light orange tinged clean gold color with a lively and big soapy head of white foam. Just as advertised this IPA has two classic hops in a perfect duet. Tangy and juicy grapefruit with a trip into a pine forest on the way down. A top notch IPA.

Fruity aroma and flavor which is getting old for me. Give me a good old piney west coast IPA, lots of bitterness.

De Alpine Beer(U. S. A.) esta American India Pale Ale de nombre ?Duet? ya un cl?sico que incluso viene como referencia del estilo y ejemplo comercial en la ultima actualizaci?n del BJCP, en Ratebeer aparece con una calificaci?n bastante alta 99/100 en el general y en el estilo nada mas y nada menos que 100/100 casi perfecta, con un 7% ABV y 45 IBU’s, probemos por que es una cerveza icono de este estilo. En apariencia esta es una cerveza con una corona de espuma delgada para el estilo pero de muy buena retenci?n compuesta a su vez de burbujas compactas, tiene buena adherencia, poca actividad de carbonataci?n, posee una tonalidad dorada intensa con turbiedad a diferencia de la actual tendencia de hacer IPA’s pajizas, posee cuerpo mediano. En nariz es bastante fierte como cualquier buen exponente del estilo, resalta todas las cualidades de los lupulos americanos que la proveen de aromas c?tricos, frutales y resinosos, en esta receta se pueden encontrar notas a toronja, mango, durazno, naranja dulce, resina y toques a miel, no es tan complicada como otras IPA’s pero su fuerza y lo bien marcado de cada uno de sus caracteres suple su posible simpleza. Ya en boca su amargor es medio, bien marcado pero no llega a causar astringencia considerable, el dulzor de las maltas esta presente, brinda equilibrio pero no se roba el protagonismo de los l?pulos americanos que proporcionan en el paladar sabores a toronja, mango, pi?a, c?scara de naranja y un ligero toque a pasto reci?n podado, dulzor a miel, tiene un retrogusto largo a naranja dulce y mango, muy rica la verdad y a la vez algo minimalista(hasta donde el estilo permita este adjetivo) a comparaci?n de recetas actuales saturadas amargor o el bum de las recientes NEIPA’s(New England India Pale Ale) que aunque no son tan amargas la cuantiosa cantidad de Dry Hopping les fija incre?blemente el olor y sabor, me agrada todo tipo de IPA soy consumidor de las extremadamente amargas pero esta Alpine tiene un balance excepcional terminado a la vieja escuela americana.

Cokemonkey11 (1049) - - JUL 16, 2017
Bottle pours amber and a thick white foam residing thin. Scent is nearly scentless. Taste is medium hopped IPA , mostly late, with dryness and crisp honey flavors. Tastes like end of life. Quite basic for a top IPA. Very good.

3.5
fidelis83 (2496) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - JUL 12, 2017
Slightly hazy gold to orange pour with a thin, creamy white head. Aroma is deep citrus, hay, caramel, light dankness and a hint of oxidization. Flavor is the same, but a bit more oxidized. Medium body, neutral to kinda juicy feel, medium carbonation, dry finish. Pretty good stuff, but it’s within a couple weeks of its best by date, so I’m sure it could be better.

3.7
Ronritter (873) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUL 6, 2017
12oz bottle clear gold pour with white head aroma is pine and citrus zest taste the same bitter dry finish
