On tap at Fireworks Pizza during the Alpine launch party. I tried to go into this tasting with an open mind, as it included Nelson and Duet and I had never tried any of these beers. Hoppy Birthday was the clear winner for me, which was quite a surprise. I'm not sure I've ever had such a full bodied, hop forward satisfying APA. This would be the Alpine beer that's in my fridge at all times if I had the option.
