COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A West Coast Double IPA So mega-hopped it will take you to hop heaven. Weve used hops in the boil, more hops in the giant hopback, and added to that, an incredible amount of dry-hopping for that cutting-edge hop bite. Once youve tasted this unique beer, all others pale in comparison. 1.072 OG Classified IBU 8%ABV

MrBunn (2789) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 10, 2010
Bottle shared with gordito. Pours a deep gold/orange with a nice frothy head and mild aromas of oranges and mild maltiness. Flavor is full of sweetness... a caramel and oranges blend with a little creaminess, mango and pine.

Rusty (1547) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - AUG 6, 2010
Bottle picked up in Alpine. Pours a nice copper color with a white head. Aroma is caramel, malt, citrus, bitter dank piney resiny hops. Flavor is bitter grapefruit, piney hops, a good amount of bitterness, grapefruit peel, herbs, grass. A little abrasive, but overall a good double IPA.

phaleslu (9920) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 31, 2010
22 oz. bottle from South Bay Drugs. Tried right after a Duet, and this one doesnt quite stand up to that one. Pours an orange-gold color with a finger-thick off-white head. Aroma of caramel malts, citrusy hops, apricots, pine, and honey. Fairly subdued compared to other Alpine IPAs as far as the aroma goes. Flavor of caramel malts, honey, orange citrus, pine resin, hops, and grass. Medium-bodied, with a malty mouthfeel and sweet finish. Bitterness is not a big factor here for a DIPA. Good beer but the other Alpine IPAs best it.

7/30/10. Big thanks to Tim for sharing! Nice orange pour with a thick fluffy white head. Nice hoppy aroma with citrus peel and rind, pine, and a faint macaroni/soapiness. A nice sweet and sour flavor with plenty of citrus peel and rind with a lingering hop bitterness. Quite nice.

On tap at Toronado SD. Aroma is sticky sweet hops, pine and tropical fruit. The flavor matches the aroma, with a strong bitterness and dry finish.

KimJohansen (10483) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - JUL 23, 2010
Hazy pale yellow with a medium to large off white head. Hoppy nose with exotic fruits like melon, mandarin, grapefruits and lemons. Flavour came out dry and very hoppy with pine, grapefruits, melon, lemon and lime. Finished dry and bitter. Lovely fresh. High drinkability.

callmemickey (4526) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 14, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 A: Bright golden-orange body. Transparent with nice carbonation. Medium sized white head comprised of tiny little bubbles... good retention before subsiding to a nice skim. Super lacing. Sheets of lacing left behind. Appetizing. S: Cheerful citrus aroma... mostly grapefruit... light pine hop aroma as well. Some sweet malt shines through. T: Juicy, grapefruit bitterness... assertive and bold... not overly resinous or piney... more floral in character... light caramel malt flavorings break through. M: Excellent carbonation levels keep this beer light-medium in body. Crisp finish. O: A wonderful brew. Pleasant to drink at 8%.

changeup45 (1731) - Lake Mary, Florida, USA - JUL 14, 2010
Bottle courtesy of Secret Santa Summer 10. Amberish-gold color and pours with a nice thick head. Scattered lacing sticks to the glass. Tropical fruit in the aroma with some grapefruit standing out along with faint pine resin, dough and caramel. Far less intense than expected. The flavors show a mish mash of sweet tropical fruit, grassy notes, caramel malt, and a bitter, dry hop finish. Not smack you in the face bitterness though. Honestly, Im not all that impressed with this one. Expo was really good, Duet even better, and I dont understand why Im not really liking this one because it sounds right up my alley. Its decent, actually pretty good, but I expected more. A must revisit.

trevor211 (1678) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 10, 2010
Pours a classic orange. Grassy, citrus hops on the nose. Sharply bitter hops up front in the flavor, eventually allowing sweeter malts to come through, then finishing bitter. This lives up to its name. Seriously tasty stuff - very bitter, very refreshing. Nice.

UPDATED: NOV 14, 2014 Re-rate (orignal rating was from a bottle, 3.2) On tap at the brewery. Clear yellow/orange pour. Grapefruit hop aromas. Lots of grapefruit hops up front with a hint of tropical fruit hops in the finish. Honey lowlights. Lots of malty notes. Good body and mouthfeel.
