5.25%ABV. Session IPA Poured out amber gold. 8SRM. Nose has aggressive fresh pine and fresh pine log aroma. Mouthfeel is light soap. Palate has some nice full-bodied lightly toasted malt flavor with white bread, graham cracker and light honey. Hops are grapefruit peel bitter and with a slightly citrus oily tang. Finish is medium long with a very pleasant grapefruit peel bitter finish.

Absolutely outstanding session IPA! Probably the best one on the market right now! I had two of these on draft at the Fairways pub in Limerick and could have had even more had the place not closed for the night. You wouldnt be able to tell this apart from a full-on IPA. The hop flavor was huge, big and bold, like a "normal" IPA but without all the booze. The beer poured a dark straw color with an ample white head. The head left some nice, cascading lacing around the inside of the glass. The nose was floral, spicy, balanced and very inviting. As I mentioned, the flavors were absolutely delicious! There was just enough pale, caramel malt flavor to balance the insanely fruity, dry, spicy and floral hops. Incredible IPA!

(Alpine Beer Company Hoppy Birthday) Bottle 355 ml at home, served into a shaker, ABV 5.25% Deep orange golden colour on the body, clear, with a small and thin white head on top, low retention. Nice aroma of citrus, lots of grapefruit, fresh squeezed orange, grass, herbs, pine needles.
