Split a 22oz bottle with my wife (well actually 60/40-me). Served in a tulip glass.
Appearance: Rich copper color with a finger of off white head. Great lacing separating ever delicious sip.
Smell: Extremely hoppy and oaky. Pine, sweet citrus, extremely floral and musky.
Taste: Very bitter with pine, citrus and mango coming through. Subtle malts that just barely balance out the bitterness to never let you forget you're drinking a hop bomb. A bit sweeter than the last release. (Cold weather delayed the fermentation process by 1 week, not sure if that had anything to do with it.)
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, mild carbonation and oily. Just the very slightest hint of lingering booziness at the end. What to you expect for 11%?
Overall: Go into it with the mindset that you're experiencing one of the most labor intensive special releases from Alpine and you wont be disappointed. Great celebratory beer even if it's celebrating the end of a long day at work. Alpine definitely has easier drinking beers (Duet and Nelson) but none better.
