Bottle provided by Alpine for review. When I poured the beer into an IPA tulip, I got a dank nose indeed. Pine resin dominates here, with a backing of well, catbox (in a good way). The color is gold to brassy, just a slight haze, with a spongy white head.
The taste is thick and malty, with stickiness on the lips, befitting its 7% ABV. The hop resin remains a big part of the taste, with a slight backing of citrus and papaya. It harks back and amplifies the original ideal of west coast pale ales, pushing only slightly into extreme territory. This one seems to need to be tasted by itself, instead of as a mealtime go-with. xofigo (4) - - JUN 17, 2017 does not count
Best IPA I have had to date. Not a guro so take with grain of salt. Mix between a Bengali IPA and a dogfish 75 min

Orange/amber with a cream head. Dank hops, citrus, florals, super fresh, and tropical notes. Smooth on the palate, fresh hops up front, florals, sticky, tropical fruit and a clean finish. jcr (2692) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUN 5, 2017
Bottle. Lightly hazy golden body. Frothy white head, slowly diminishing. Inviting aromas of orange, citrus, tropical fruit, toasted grain, cookie, light pine. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. Starts with sweet citrus and tropical fruit, finishes with pine bitterness. On the sweet side, but well balanced with bittering hops. Really nice aroma and mouthfeel. Not especially crisp, but clean, juicy. Really nice IPA. NikkTwist (3191) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 4, 2017
