Tried this at on tap at City Beer Store in SF. Really sparkly hop flavor. It's like 5 different kinds of bitterness mixed together that turn into something totally different when combined.

If you like IPAs, then this is definitely a pleasing drink.

It's not overly malty or heavy, as some IPAs can be. There's very little head. The color is a pale amber.

The beer it reminds me of most is Russian River Brewing's Row 2 Hill 56. I like Alpine Hoppy Birthday better though.

I understand that Alpine is working with Green Flash now to increase their production and distribution range, so hopefully this will become available more easily now.
