Alpine might be small, but their brewing chops are mighty. We teamed up to create this triple dry-hopped imperial IPA bursting with Columbus, Amarillo, Centennial and Simcoe hops. Consider yourself a hero for getting an Alpine beer outside of San Diego.

Tap at Piece Brewing in Chicago. Clear light gold pour, small white head. Syrupy palate, bold pine and floral hops. Dense and delicious.

hopscotch (11305) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 12, 2015
Growler... Pours clear and amber with golden highlights and a small, creamy, white head. The aroma features a medley of tropical fruits and a note of orange blossom honey. Medium-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and jazzy carbonation. The flavor is juicy, fruity and bright, with a moderate measure of hoppy bitterness and a lesser ration of honey and biscuit sweetness. The mouth-watering finish is fruity and a touch sweet. Bottle courtesy of ctipping and/or landhoney!

phaleslu (10742) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 4, 2012
22 oz. bottle. Pours a clear orange-gold with a big off-white head that laces the glass. Aroma of herbal, oily hops, sweet malts, and tangerine citrus. Flavor of caramel malts, sugar, and the same citrusy and herbal hops. Medium-bodied, with an oily, citrusy, malty mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Really nice DIPA- not surprising, since Alpine is involved.

marcus (10736) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 27, 2012
On tap at Capitol Beer, Sacramento. Pours golden with a rich off-white head and a strong citrus aroma. There is a full-bodied caramel malt flavor that is totally dominated by simcoe hop bitterness. Though unbalanced, still a very tasty brew.

cubs (10721) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 9, 2012
Bottle @ home. Hazy dark appearance with a cream colored head. One whiff and you realize this is a motherfucking Alpine beer. OMGZ. Super fucking rich, grapefruit, big resiny, marijuana, thick resiny, spicy hoppy, perfect aroma. 10 all you motherfuckers. Perfecto. Somewhat chewy, a bit toasty malty, a touch yeasty, big grapefruity, marijuana, resiny/piney hoppy flavor. One whiff or one taste and you know this is an Alpine beer and it’s just beautiful. Not sure what the New Belgium contribution is but this just smells and tastes like an amazing, aromatic, beautiful Alpine Double IPA. Best collaboration thus far by New Belgium. Delicious tasty stuff. Thank you, Alpine for making your deliciousness local to Colorado.

onceblind (10690) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 22, 2012
Tap at NB. Clear brilliant golden with a laceful, albeit thin, white head, and a fresh-hoppy aroma of leafy, lupulin-filled fresh picked hops, with a slight tangerine/caramel backbone. The taste is pretty full and hoppy, but remains fairly balanced. Lots of fresh picked leafy lupulin-filled hops greet the palate head on, leading to a touch of pine, but the bitterness is tempered with a mild light fruity and citrusy sweetness, with notes of orange, lemon, and tangerine melding with pale malts and bitter caramel sweetness. Overall kinda bitter, but a delightful hop lovers dream.

3.8
GT (10017) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 2, 2012
651mL from Stateline Liquors. Pours chill hazed orange with a large, creamy, rocky, off-white foam. Thick and dense. Good retention. Nose is very fruity hoppy, cantaloupe, pineapple, moving to some dust and cheese that it will no doubt devolve into in a few weeks. Taste is sweet, sticky, spicy, rich, thicker mango pulp. Nice one. Some sweet, white alcohol. Palate is bitter, fruity, dense.
