4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.
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. legghumper (1) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 22, 2017 does not count
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. BuckeyeBoy (7545) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 31, 2015
22oz bottle thanks to Steve. Nose is odd must be the oak chips grassy hops melons and booze. Taste is more of the melons some sweetness the oak notes and some sweetness. Dr_Fellini (1020) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - DEC 27, 2015
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. Bonnie628 (50) - Tustin, California, USA - DEC 26, 2015
Great bitter hoppy exponential hoppy brew clear orange and an abundant northwest hop aroma. Real bitter and hoppy. Perfect brew my two pennies.

(Bouteille): Un liquide en santé avec une belle mousse immortelle et une arôme puissante de thé noir, chair d’orange, miel floral et écorce de chêne. En bouche, tout est là avec en prime une vanille grasse que se colle à la gomme de pin. Les poignards d’éthanol étaient beaucoup plus présent à la première qu’à la deuxième minute.

Amber pour with a white head. Bottle shared by Long - thanks!! Slightly malty nose and a brilliant fruitiness. Massive fruity hip character, slight bitterness, mouthfeel is on the thick side. Nice. jsphstls (13) - USA - APR 5, 2015
Bomber to tulip. Opaque amber. Immediate floral taste with hoppy bitters after. Surprisingly drinkable.
