4.36/5 rDev -2.5%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
poured from 22 oz bottle purchased a week ago from alpine brewery to a ballast point tulip
A: pours a great light gold, very clear and with very minimal head. dissipated almost fully within 5 minutes of pouring
S: SUPER PINE. heavy dank. very fresh and almost a cheddar cheese cracker after-smell.
T: very fresh hop taste directly up front. fades into an almost baked parmasean cheese flavor. i dont know if its just me since i know this is a high rated beer yet i havent even read any other official descriptive reviews for it. almost like liquid goldfish crackers. which in my book is A-OK!
M: minimal. its very smooth and potent but not very viscous or thick. goes down very easy and doesnt linger too too much.
O: great beer. really enjoyed it after hearing how good it was!

Alpine has just started distributing their kegs and I have been lucky enough to be in LA and a frequent customer to the bars where they get Alpine's stuff. This Rye IPA has a very unique hazy and golden color, not typical of other Rye IPAs I've had (Hop Rod, Ruthless). The smell is on point, I can't think of a better nose to a beer that I've ever had (Pliny is up there though). This sets you up for an unbelievable palate pleaser. Very very drinkable (got me into some fun last night) and not something you can burn out on. If you can get your hands on this, it's an unforgettable beer. A top 5 IPA for sure.
