4.54/5 rDev +1.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.25
L: Light pale and straw in color. Strong and this pillow like foamy head, lingers quite a bit as well. Slight haze.
S: Citrus and tropical upfront then the rye hits you with some faint black licorice and rubber notes. When it's warmer pine comes out and appears
T: Again citrus upfront with rye blending in nicely fading into a real nice pine.
M: Light and easy to drink. Really nice mouth-feel to his one.
O: Really nice beer, would love to have this all the time. One thing I notice about Alpine is its kinda like my homebrew, at the bottom has some hop bits in it lol.

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.
