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.

Orange pour. Draft at sheffields. Sticky white head. Was warm but still good. Not sure if that is on purpose. Floral citrus and fruity taste. Really good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

4oz pour at haymarket. Pours a nice clear amber orange color with a nice fluffy white head. Good head retention and lacing. Strong hop aroma with a sweet note as well. Sweet malt backbone. Has a nut like taste to it. Nice hops. Overall pretty tasty.

Bottle at SL.... Great nose... Bursting with grapefruit, oranges, mango and other tropical fruits... Taste follows the nose... Lots of mango, grapefuit, piney but not super bitter but some how still hoppy while maintaining balance. Texture is light and the easy to drink. More of a pale ale than an IPA... Alcohol is well hidden but warming. Overall: Cant get enough of this... classic west coast DIPA that I love.

It is amazing that Alpine’s flavor came from such a larger brewhouse/system... This is a fantastic IPA. Big rich, tropical notes - mango, guava - grapefruit and a hint of pine - it also has that unexplainable sweet smell that Alpine does. Only thing it is lacking a tad is the slight creamy mouthfeel they get to balance the big hops. Fantastic, I am taken aback.

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.

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.

Bottle pours bright orange with a medium rocky white head, lots of lacing. Aroma is huge tropical fruits and citrus. Mango, apricot, pineapple, grapefruit and orange. Flavor is the same but with very subdued bitterness. Just big juicy fruity hops. I still dig it.
