Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
A West Coast IPA that features Amarillo and Simcoe hops "in harmony," giving a light, floral aroma. Duet is nicely bitter with the perfect amount of malt concealed behind the hoppy goodness. Immensely drinkable, amazingly light on its feet.

thanks toronado SD on alpine night!

-good light colored yellowy gold. very clean. poured with a medium tall head that stays faint throughout

-big pine hop on the nose that lasts top to bottom. some hints of citrus as well

-bitterness from the hops comes in through the front and the back end. there is a good malt presence start to finish despite the strong hop taste

-good enough mouthfeel. some carb bite and a decent IPA body

-my favorite of the alpine IPA's...although i have not had expo yet

Serving type: on-tap

Delicious!

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.

A: Pours more of a gold color but when resting in the glass it is gold with a slight orange hue, leaves a frothy head that takes awhile to vanish, leaves some nice lacing on the glass as well

S: A perfect balance of pine, tropical fruits, grapefruit, slightly sweet malts, and a hint of bitterness, fantastic smell to this brew.

T: Up front you get a lovely greeting of pine sand grapefruit mixed, then it transitions to those lovely tropical fruits, and finishes with a perfectly balanced mix along with the perfect amount of bitterness. This beer is so well balanced and flavorful, it is absolutely outstanding!

M: Superb mouthfeel, so light crisp and refreshing, leaves your mouth a little dry which leaves you begging for more! So drinkable as well!

O: This beer is phenomenal! Get your hands on it!
