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.

A: Crystal clear light orange in appearance

S: slightly bready with lots of fruit tangerines, and some stone fruits

T: This beer chases a fantastic hoppy juicy taste but it fades quickly and becomes a tad malty leading me to believe this beer might be slightly old. Still very nice taste this is my kind of IPA fruity.

M: has a nice carbonation bite not sticky or cloying on the tongue pretty light and clean

O: Alpine is the real deal first beer by them and although I suspect it's slightly odd it's still pretty fantastic. I was surprised it had simcoe hops I would have guessed. New Zealand hops like Nelson. Regardless it's a great IPA look for it.
