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.

ksurkin (1021) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - SEP 11, 2012
22oz bottle, dated 7/29/12, from grape & gourmet. pours hazy, pale gold capped by a dense, pillowy white head with solid retention that leaves sticky rings of lace. aroma is outstanding, definitely an Alpine IPA, with huge notes of honeydew and cantelope melon rind, tangerine, and pink grapefruit backed by tropical notes of mango, pineapple syrup, and passionfruit with hints of vanilla flowers, fresh cut spruce, and dank grass. flavor is delicious as well with the sweet melon notes from the aroma taking a backseat to orange-pineapple juice, mango, guava, and passionfruit (yeah, it’s really tropical) with big, bitter, spruce/evergreen notes, floral esters, and subtle honey and vanilla sweetness on the back end. palate is medium bodied with a "juicy" mouthfeel and a lingering, tropical fruit and bitter pine finish. overall, a great dipa.

22 oz bottle shared with Tmoney99 from backlog. Pours a clear dark golden/amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, caramel, juicy citrus, herbal and light resiny hops, sticky, flavor is nice, moderate bitterness, solid DIPA.

Clear golden colored with a small white head. Sweet and floral. Liked it better as time went by. 5/12

nuplastikk (6414) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 11, 2016
Tap at Sidedoor. Filtered orange-tan body. Nice broad hop depth. Cleanish hop depth. Foamy, glass-lacing white head. I get a lot of dry straw tones that make me think Amarillo, with a hintof new school citrus, the Simcoe, amont the classic NW piny grapefruit tones. Comes across quite strong, I don’t think I’d want anymore than the 10oz pour I had. A respectable enough IIPA, but a touch antiquated and not so exciting. Resinous hops. Alcohol notes. Clean, well made.

I really liked it when it was cold but as it set it became less and less appealing to me.

Rated based on notes taken 2 Sep 2012 -- Didn’t have many notes other than I drank this at Flying Saucer and I really liked it.

4.1
fiulijn (21022) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 5, 2015
Draught at Apex, Portland, as Alpine Super IPA
Hazy golden color. Some manure aroma. Good pale malt backbone, lean, only lightly sweet, with strong resiny hopping and some citrus fruit.
Excellent, easy to drink in the category, yet bold and hop-forward.

3.5
sturmthis (1149) - Bavaria, GERMANY - FEB 14, 2015
On draft. Orange golden color with one finger head. Tropical fruit and slight pine aroma. Flavor is similar. Can get a taste of the alcohol. Pretty good.

3.7
hopscotch (11181) - 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!

3.7
VertBaconStrips (2395) - Blerkablerka, VENEZUELA - FEB 8, 2015
Revo. Spicy, peach, pungent, sweet grapefruit, pine, chewy, tropics, just a massive avalanche of potent everything. Awesome. Just let it warm up!

3.6
reebtogi (6341) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 7, 2015
12oz tulip glass on tap at Beer Revolution’s Edmonton location pours a golden color with a finger of white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is tropical fruits with some grapefruit and light grains. Taste is a grapefruit hop bitterness with a tropical fruit and caramel malty sweetness. Medium bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, a high quality DIPA that is well balanced and tasty and definitely worth tasting.
