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.

22oz bottle obtained via trade with meathookjones. Thanks for the opportunity...

Poured into an imperial pint glass, formed 3/4" of off-white head over the golden brew. Frothy head exhibits some staying power, and lacing is foamy and plentiful. Aroma is all about the piney hops, with perhaps a dash of citrus, all shimmed up with ample malt character. Taste is as well all about piney hops, with smooth malts sliding in somewhat under that radar. Mouthfeel is great for the style, not too overboard, and drinkability is good as well. Another delectible Alpine offering, I'll have to keep an eye out for others...
