Growler shared thanks to Arbitrator.
Awesome appearance. Brilliant mostly clear copper color with a lasting two-finger white head and great lacing.
Huge citrusy, piney, and resinous hope aroma with sweet malt and fresh cereal grains.
Sweet pale malt base, a little sweeter than most Alpine IPAs in a good way. Really tastes like wort in a way, and I like it. Also huge ripe grapefruit flesh and peel, resins, and pine needles.
Brutal resins attack your palate despite the fact that the body is only medium. Dry and bitter.
Really really awesome overall. Not surprising.

Growler from Alpine. Orange color, good head, yes. Aroma of hops and hops and then hops? Pine, citrus, etc. flavor was damn hoppy with only the slightest hint of what I'm guessing are summit hops (onion). Great IPA, super hoppy, glad I got to try it.
Serving type: on-tap
