A big thanks to Jolijuli23 for this incredible extra! Very generous!
The beer pours a hazy yellowy gold color with medium white foam cap. The head recedes to a thin ring atop the beer with substantial lacing still adhering to the glass.
The smell is quite strong with a big citrus hop nose. Notes of stone fruit abound here with slight hints of lavender and floral honey.
The taste shows off a tremendous hop bill with citric floral notes balanced against a slight sweetness to start, giving way to clean uber-citrus bitter finish. The pungent dry finish literally makes me want to take another drink each time. Lovely stuff!
The mouthfeel is great for this beer. Medium-high carbonation but with a luscious creaminess from the adequate body.
Drinkability is great, as you could easily enjoy 2 or more pints of this without a problem. Clean, bitter finish contributes to this attribute.
This is a great rendition of IPA. Hopheads must seek this out!

I’m glad to say that this, my first taste of an Alpine beer, lived up to the hype.
It pours a golden-tan with exceptional clarity. I get a great citrus aroma and some light piney notes. There’s a lively citrus flavor and a light bittering on it. I enjoyed this repeatedly when I found it on tap. An all around well done IPA that hits all the right notes.
