Poured from the bottle into a Unibroue tulip. Big thanks to TempsPerdu for sharing this one.
A- Pours a deep golden to orange with 2 finger creamy white head leaving absurdly thick lacing.
S- Fruity hop profile with a substantial piney-ness. Very fresh hop smell dominated by a big fruitiness. Very bready and biscuity malt bill.
T- Hops are nowhere near what the aroma would have you believe. Much more malt-forward than I would like. Don't get me wrong, it's still a great IPA, but really falls short of what the nose led me to expect.
MF- Sticky, but pretty thin for a beer like this. The malts are even a little cloying.
D- Very drinkable, but not my favorite of the big boys. I would prefer Pure Hoppiness or Nelson over this any day, but solid IPA from Alpine.
