So I went to Pizza Port Carlsbad planning to log my official 100th ratebeer rating... I saw this up on the board and had to get a pint. Pale amber pour with a thin white head. Beautiful aroma of fresh cut grass, pine needles, and freshly broken citrus rind. The mouthfeel of this brew is awesome. Pleasant hop bite but smooth malty feel. This is probably the freshest tasting hops that I’ve ever had. Juicy pine and citrus flood the palate followed by steady flow of caramel and orange. Best IPA to date and a pleasant surprise for rating #100. Well done Alpine.

Bottle, 650 ml, courtesy of BeerandBlues2, huge thanks! So this one made home safely, after 4000 km of road trip including Death Valley (in June) and 10+ hours of flight. Nice hazy orange color with medium white head. Strong hoppiness, fruity, citrus, some grapefruit, pine, resinous, some caramel sweetness in the middle, lasting bitterness. Alcohol well hidden. Medium+ bodied. I'm surprised how it held well considering amount of time it spent in sometimes extremely hot car. Maybe just a hint of funkiness as a result so good thing we've opened it in time. Very good.

This was a bottle share at the RBSG Grand Tasting in Boise. In the tasting glass citrus, pine, and floral hops. Medium body and a mouithfeel that bites. Flavor is just plain hoppy, almost muddled. Finishes with alcohol burn. Too much of everything.

Bottle at RBSG. Light haze, golden body, substantial head. Aroma is equal parts hops and citrus. Nice feel and consistency, hops get more astringent on the palate. Citrus finish with a bit of warmth.

Bottle - A bit of cardboard and spice hops. Clearish gold with a small white head. Old tasting and up to par.

De Alpine Beer esta Triple India Pale Ale de nombre “Exponential Hoppiness”, como en algunas otras reseñas ya e mencionado que este estilo aun no es reconocido por el BJCP y otras organizaciones enfocadas a estandarizar estilos de cerveza, tampoco en Ratebeer aparece la designación de Triple IPA pero ya hay una serie de características que comparten como tener mas de 10% en graduación alcohólica y doble dry hopping, Alpine produce esta Triple India Pale Ale en temporada de primavera, su receta contiene 11% ABV y 100 IBU’s. En apariencia es una cerveza con una delgada corona de espuma compuesta por perlas medianas, ligera en retención, color dorado intenso con destellos naranja, mucha turbiedad, cuerpo medio. En aroma es bastante intensa, frutal y resinosa, se pueden encontrar notas a mandarina, durazno, melón, mango, toronja y piña, tambien hay toques herbales y un buen carácter a miel, adecuada en su totalidad. En sabor es considerablemente amarga pero hay un dulzor parecido a la miel aportado por la malta que balancea en gran medida los IBU’s de esta receta, astringencia restringida nada que este fuera o exagerado a el estilo americano, final seco que se hace aun mas seco por el alcohol al irse entibiando, los sabores encontrados son de carácter frutal con algunos toques de resina y herbales, se puede apreciar mandarina, naranja dulce, melón, durazno, mango, piña, toronja, dulzor parecido a el de la miel, bastante compleja y fuerte, no es para todos los paladares, el alcohol genera cierta tibieza, gran cerveza de Alpine Beer.

Bomber poured a hazy orange with a small lasting creamy amber head. Aromas of bread, yeast, orange zest, pink grapefruit and peach. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of bread, peach, orange zest and light grapefruit with a smooth dry bitter lingering fruity citrus finish.

Beer nirvana for me. Had the chance to taste at Toronado side by side to RR PTY. EH was the hands down winner. Wish I could get a second chance but haven’t seen it since.

Draft at Alpine, and bottle to glass. Pours a mostly clear deep golden color with an off white head. Aroma has a solid juicy hop character. Flavor is quite juicy with kind of a candy-like middle, probably from the oak chips. Solid, but by no means my favorite IIPA.
