A. It has a semi-opaque wheat gold color with a little bit of a white head that leaves a tiny bit of lacing.

S. It has a nice citrus scent.

T. This is extremely fruity. It has an a strong pineapple taste mixed with a strong citrus flavor. A touch sour. It has a long finish of fruitiness. Maybe some simcoe hops?

M. A tart carbonation to it. Medium bodied.

O. The after taste of pineapple and citrus is just too strong. Extremely flavorful, but this has to be something that you like.

Poured from bomber into snifter. Pours a big orange with a finger of head. Lots of pine and fruit hop aroma. Taste is huge fruity pebble with some pine...but a huge malt profile. A bit over malted but great hop and candy fruit flavor...nice brew but way to malted.

New Belgium/Alpine Super IPA

A- pour produces a nice 2 finger light tan head resting on a straw colored body that's very clear. One of the lightest colored DIPA's I've seen. Good retention and lacing. 4 

S- nice mix of tropical fruit and citrus. Orange and lemon zest, light grapefruit,  guava, mango. Malt is in good balance. 4  

T- no flavors really pop in this one just a good balanced beer that is quite enjoyable. That said the flavors also seem to be lighter than a normal DIPA causing the alcohol to poke through more. Some tropical flavors, citrus, bready malt, lemongrass, slight pine. Very enjoyable but didn't amaze me 4 

M- very good mouthfeel. Nice carbonation and on the lighter side of medium 4

O- a good beer. Drinkability is alright. 4

Pours a semi-opaque golden, with a nice head of sudsy carbonation. Beautiful, frilly lace, too.

Nose is pine and floral hop goodness. Yum.

Flavor is a wallop of heavy pine and citrus hops, tempered by a firm malt backbone. Good balance, and definitely on the heavy and dry side. My only issue is that this one seems too acidic for my palate, somehow. Still, a unique and well-done IPA.
