A - Looks just as nice and clean as every other Alpine beer. A light, golden orange color.
S - Beautiful floral, foresty, and citrus hops aroma -- I couldn't stop inhaling it. The pine and pineapple notes scream West Coast style IPA.
T - Big hops as expected and a bit of bready spice on the front end, but the back end fails to impress. Not much there.
M - Not bad but a little watery... doesn't hold up like other Alpine brews.
D - The thin quality adds to the drinkability, though it detracts elsewhere. As good as almost anything I can think of for a hot summer day, which is impressive at 6.75%.
Great beer, but somehow not top-shelf by Alpine's standards. Their fault for setting the bar so damned high.
Serving type: on-tap

just an incredible beer. Perfection and balance define the palate. Has the right amount of hops, right amount of malt, and it has a silky smooth drink down the palate. There's a bit on the front palate and the concentration of flavor is so appealing and long Not sure what else you can ask from a west coast IPA.
