Clear golden/copper from tap, no head to speak of. Huge grapefruit nose, some pine. Big bitter flavor melds with grapefruit and other floral notes. Bitter throughout. Nice brew for a hop lover. crackedmachine (536) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 20, 2012
Pours golden-orange, only lightly hazy, with a very slight head. Aroma of tropical fruit and pine is pleasant but not massive. The flavor is a bit of a departure from the aroma, but still very nice. It is quite sweet, somewhat dank, a little pine, tropical fruit, a bit of toffee, and notable accents of apricot and peach. Bitterness is moderate and understated. Some lingering, mild bitterness and alcohol in the finish, along with the peachy flavor. Subtly unique, and very enjoyable. larryLSB (533) - La Selva Beach, California, USA - SEP 29, 2012
Poured from a bomber, into a chalice. Nice golden in color with a good sized white head. Strong nose of citrus and fresh cut pine. Taste was hop forward, lively, medium bodied with a bitter aftertaste. Good stuff, had it on ta[ at the brewery also and the bottled version is just as good.

Pours a slightly hazy golden with a 3 finger head leaving heavy lacing. Toasted malt with grapefruit and pineapple. Hint of sweetness up front that is quickly overtaken by moderate to heavy bitterness. This quite good. Medium to full body with moderate, but soft carbonation. Long bitter finish. Well balanced for a 9% imperiral ipa. This is fantastic. Doodler (473) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 10, 2012
22 oz bottle I picked up at Wilburs. $5.99 (yes!) Pours a tangerine orange with a nice head and sticky lacing.. Nose is all grapefruity and hoppy.spuce tips. Serious pine needle, white pepper and resin notes on the first sip. Finishes with malts, orange peel and sweet fruit on the back Love Alpine IPAs and this is yummy, balanced stuff.
Grazie NB for this colab brew....glad I grabbed a couple to enjoy......

Wow, love the lips of faith series from new Belgium. On tap at the Hay Merchant in Houston, wonderful hoppy/floral/citrus aroma. A powerful hoppy punch to the taste buds! Great collaboration with alpine

The Über-Super IPA!
Collaboration with Alpine Beer Company.
Very rich and smooth, well balanced flavour. Rich in everything, but expertly balanced. Pines, stable, hops and alcohol.
A very good adult beverage! TomTron (462) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 26, 2012
Pours a hazy orange with a sudsy white head. Aromas of pungent floral hops and grapefruit, really fragrant. Flavor is really packed with fruit and the malt character is there but not shining through like the citrus and grapefruit. Perhaps the sweetest DIPA I’ve ever tried. Has a tinge of bitterness in the back end as well as a dry finish, but also leaves me feeling like I have flowery breath which I can’t say I’ve ever felt before. Not a bad beer, a rather interesting one actually and the aroma is what is most memorable, but it’s one that I can’t see myself drinking very often at all.
