Big thanks to Ehammond1 for hooking me up!
A- Pours a light orange hue with a small white head that leaves just a ring around the top of the glass
S- Huge piney hops! Malt? We don't need no stinkin malt!
T- Again the huge bitter piney hops but a dash of citrus in there that brings everything to balance. Simply wonderful
M- Light, refreshing, prickley, gorgeous
O- This doesnt quiiite match up to Nelson or Duet but let's be honest, hardly any IPAs do. This is delicious and Alpine certainly knows how to brew a damn IPA

4.54/5 rDev +3.7%
Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a snifter. Bottle was purchased on December 27th, 2013.
A - Dark gold to bronze
S - Citrus notes and grassy. Mostly a hop forward nose. Some biscuity/yeasty smells are noticeable after a little swirl.
T - Lots of citrus and tropical fruits from the hops. Lots of grapefruit, orange and pine. You also get a little toasted malt and biscuit toward the end. The finish is classic Alpine. Its crisp and resinous.
M - It's medium to light bodied. It has that oily/sticky body that I love in IPAs. Its very drinkable and hides the 8.00% Abv well.
O - This is another example of an amazing (D)IPA by Alpine. The classic resinous and crisp finish makes this beer extremely drinkable. Although I prefer Nelson and Duet to this (just barely), this is still a top DIPA that ranks up there with Heady and Pliny.

A-Cloudy orange, one finger head that leaves behind some lacing.
S-Lots of pine and grassy hops. What a hop forward nose.
T-Lots of pine, some toasted malt, ends with solid bitterness. Well rounded with the earthy hops and the bitterness.
M-Medium bodied, hop resins and nicely carbonated.
O-A damn good DIPA. Had after PtE and Heady so it didn't match up there, but still a great beer.

A: clear, golden orange yellow, almost no head
S: like you want to go swimming in it:-) yeasty, strong
T: HOPPY, strong, good contrast of sweet malt and bitter citrus hops
M: smooth, medium body, malty,
Overall very refreshing, and drinkable. Pairs well with almost any food. Great disguise for the amount of alcohol
