Shared 22oz bomber obtained in trade from Vanlingleipa.
Cloudy, pale yellow liquid poured into DFH snifter. One-finger white head, thick lacing.
Aroma of sweet hops, lemon, orange and spice/pepper.
Smooth hoppy bitterness, mild spicy rye notes, grapefruit. All very subtle compared to Alpine's usual hop marvels. The pepper/spice rye lingers on the lips and tongue. Nice touch.
Medium body, well carbonated. Rye provides a bit more body.
This is a quality brew, for sure, but for the effort, I will take the more hop forward offerings from Alpine.

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.
