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.

Bottle. Pours a clear golden orange with an off-white head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has a good amount of of dank pine with grapefrut and not much of a grain backbone. Flavor begins with grapefruit and bitter citrus that is joined by pine and onion.

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 its 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.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, 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.

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

phaleslu (9775) - 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 (9679) - 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.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 19, 2012
22oz bottle, $7 from Beer Run. Mostly clear golden color. Good dense off-white head, leaves good lace. Very interesting unique hop aroma. Something in it thats new to me. Like a biscuit well-seasoned with strong herbs. Interesting, and pretty tasty. Smooth, lighter carbonation, creamy texture. Clean finish, but good long hoppy aftertaste. Nice big bitter taste, little alcohol bite in the finish and warmth in the aftertaste, little slightly zesty sweetness. Little stickiness in the finish. Satisfying and interesting DIPA.

Pour out of 22 oz bottle, big thanks to Aaron! Clear orange with nice fluffy white head, aroma has notes of big weed and dank notes, pine and resinous notes, grapefruit peel, orange, lemon peel, lots of tropical fruit as well. Wow. Taste is big sweet orange, toffee, some white dank fruits, some slight pine, finishing with more hop notes, big citrus notes come through. I could drink a lot of this.

Pale straw colour. The aroma is awesome. Really bright lemon and citrus character. Load of pine and tropical flavour with a fresh resinous finish. Smooth clean bitterness and a bright citrus and tropical fruit flavour. Awesome, awesome stuff. The beer of the trip so far. Juicy and delicious.
