A growler obtained during GatM. Shared with Ffejherb, SierraGS, Brewslut, dashirey and Jill.
A-Brilliant copper with a thin white head that holds strong and left spotty lace.
S-The ever so intoxicating aroma of citrus and light pine hops that can only be a San Diego County west coast DIPA. A bit of caramel malt sweetness in the background.
T-Grapefruit, orange and tangerine hop flavours that meld into a magical elixir! A light hint of sweet caramel malt to balance the bitterness out.
M-Medium-light body with a LONG lasting hop flavour.
D-One of my very favorite west coast DIPA's out there. I could drink this one all day. Exactly what I crave in a hop bomb.

22oz bottle, thanks Dustin. Poured into a Surly goblet today, 3/4/2014. Not the first time I've had this but the first time I can review this..
App- clear straw yellow body, disappointingly thin white head with weak retention. Good lacing.
Smell- smells reasonably dank, like fresh hop pellets. Earthy, floral, grapefruit, pineapple. Pretty solid.
Flavor- better than it smells. More citrus and pineapple come out on top of the floral notes. A nice crackery, caramel malt backbone.
Mouthfeel- a bit thinner than I'd like. Fair amount of carbonation, nice dry finish. Not too resinous or thick. Quite bitter but clean.
Overall- solid IPA. Nelson is definitely the best one of the Alpine trio. This may very well be the worst of the three which isn't saying much since this is more than solid.
