Notes/Commercial Description:
This brew uses several varieties and multiple hop additions to the kettle as well as a large "hop back" to give the bitterness and aroma a start. Plenty of dry hops finish it off and give a big hop bouquet.

22 oz bottle into a tulip.

A: It pours an amber color with orange hues. Big two finger white with good retention and lacing.

S: Very hoppy up front with notes of grapefruit and oranges. A little bit of toasty malt, but nothing off the charts. There are some resinous pine notes that waft from the glass on the backside as it warms.

T: A nice blast from the hops begins the show with grapefruit and citrus notes. The malt makes itself known mid palate with some nice toast and spice. It finishes with a pine cone bitterness really dry and lip smacking.

M: Medium bodied and luscious carbonation.

O: Another great beer from Alpine Beer Company. Huge hops and nice malt balance. Seek this one out for sure.
