My second bottle from the Friday release. Beautiful golden color with a rather thin white head that dissipates rather quickly. This beer is very clear and clean looking. The nose s all monstrous hops, I mean HUGE hops with pine resin and bitter citrus notes on the back end. The first impression on the pallette is holy hop monster, hang on baby this is not for the faint of heart. Unbelievably the guys at Alpine have crafted a hop centric beast that is not only incredibly balanced but brilliantly flavorful without any noticeable heat from the 11% abv. There are tons of hops, oak and tropical fruit that just attack your taste buds in an amazingly refreshing way. The mouth is cleaned with great carbonation that leaves your pallette clean and bone dry, no cloying sweetness at all, the finish lasts thirty seconds at least. This is just a freak of a beer. So huge in every way but so drinkable for it's size. I am glad I was able to grab several bottles. This is not an everyday beer but a brew you sit down with when nothing else needs to be attended to. Bravo to the crew at Alpine for crafting another amazing beer.
