Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: xlperro on 12-18-2002

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.
Draft & 22oz bottles.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured 22oz bomber into New Belguim globe

A-Pours a bronzey orange with a one finger white head and a bit of lacing.

S-Smell is impressive with lots West Coast IPA flair -- pine, grapefruit, hops, fresh fruit.

T-Taste follows suit, despite the massive hop presence it is only lightly bitter with balancing sweetness.

M-Crisp, medium-full bodied, oily/creamy texture, lively carbonation, long bitter finish.

O-Overall great DIPA, great taste of hops, great brew from Alpine. I look forward to their other brews. They do need to date their bottles.

Poured a clear, amber color with thick white foam. The smell was a strong and persistent fruity-chewy hop aroma with some malt backing it up. The taste was naturally dominated by the chewy, resinous hops, but the hops were not really over the top and were nicely balanced with the malt. The mouthfeel was smooth and slightly sweet with a medium-full body and moderate carbonation. The dry, hoppy flavor lingered on the tongue pleasantly.
