Interesting IPA -- very citrusy, almost orange in taste, and not very bitter/hoppy.

Bottle. Pours with a dense good sized off white head on top of a clear gold body. The nose if full of fresh mixed citrus, grapefruit, pine and some underlying malt. Moderately sweet with more bitterness. In the mouth, lots of grapefruit, other citrus, sweet fruit, some caramel, and a nice amount of bitterness that continues in the finish. Body is medium. Very good. tcane7 (1674) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 26, 2012

Pours a nice orange/gold color. Medium, white head that goes away fast. Smells like a lot of hops with some citrus. Tastes about the same. It has a nice upfront of citrus finishes with a dry hoppy bitterness. Not bad. It grows on you too.

On draft at Bruisin’ Ales in Asheville. Pours a bright light orange with a light foamy white head. Nose is resiny citrus hops, nearly pungent and hinting at a bit of sweetness. Super fresh and smells amazing. A bit sweet on the taste and sticky on the palate, but great for a small amount. madvike (3264) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Bottle - Clear amber pour with a ring of white head. Nose is juicy citrus and tropical fruit, with light bready malt. Taste is the same with a bit more onion/garlic hops. Same clean bready malt. Slick and medium bodied, with ample carbonation. joergen (28142) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2012
Bottle at Papsø.
Clear golden coloured with a small white head.
Fruirt aroma of hops, caramel and cardamom.
Fruity flavour of hops, grass and cardamom.
Dry hoppy finish. philvil (176) - Massachusetts, USA - NOV 22, 2012
Two of my favorite breweries really came up with something special. Probably the best collaboration I’ve ever tasted. Alpine’s specialty is hop flavor blending for perfectly balanced IPAs. New Belgium brings a mastery of texture, carbonation and clarity. The combination is spectacular. An extraordinarily balanced IPA. yespr (45447) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 22, 2012
22 fl oz bottle. Pours clear and golden orange with a small white head. Aroma is pine and grapefruity hoppy. Bitter, grapefruity, toasted malty and pine hops. Bitter, dry and almost herbal. Dry and bitter finish.
