22oz bomber poured into my pint glass. Taken from notes
Pours a light orange vibrant color with a two and half inch white fluffy head. Good retention that leaves bits amount of lacing clinging to the sides of my glass.
The smell is of citrus with tangerine being dominate along with pine like hops and slight floral aromatics.
The taste upfront was of a slight citrus tangerines flavor along with grapefruit and midway is a pine bitterness that seemed to dominate the rest of the flavor.
Thick syrup like body that I did not really care for with average carbonation.
Out of Duet, Nelson, and Pure hoppiness. This one was the worst of the three. I recommend Duet if you are going to choose.

Bomber purchased from Alpine Beer Company on 7-16, and consumed on 7-27.
Nice, golden color with 1" head.
The smell is dank, weedy hops that preview what is yet to come.
The taste is a little lighter than expected, but delicious. Dank, fresh, herbal hops, tropical fruit, and a good malt back bone to balance it all out. This skews a little toward the Stone IPA's and reminds me somewhat of a lighter Enjoy by, but with more balance.
Mouthfeel is average for the style, with average carbonation. This was obviously bottled right before I purchased it as the freshness is there in spades.
What an enjoyable double IPA. It certainly gives it's more celebrated brothers Nelson and Duet a run for it's money from a quality/pleasure standpoint,, and I will happily buy my quota of this every time I set foot in Alpine Beer Co.
