On tap at PreFunk. Hop resin rules the day, overload of pine, dry sappy bitterness. Slightly hazy pour with small creamy white head. Hops on the nose and full force in the taste. Dry sweet finish. This is what IPAs are all about.

Mixture of light orange and yellow, soft white head 2/3". Aroma was good, but not "Alpine*" good, seemed to have some simcoe and c hops.

Taste was very hoppy, good flavor, not just bitterness. Mouthfeel still hid the 9% abv with a dry toasted pale malt body staying away from heavier malt feels. The hop flavors waft from citrus to tropical to vegetal greens.

Very enjoyable, just wish it was available in a format better than a bomber, but wasn't ridiculously priced.

From notes. Had on tap at the Bryant Lake Bowl.
L: Pours gold with a slight haze under a thin, off-white foam cap. S: Floral hops, light grains, citrus, lemon
T: Traces of muffin orange marmalade flavor, fruit, tart, with an assertive hop accent on the finish.
F: Very creamy, medium light body, medium high carbonation.
O: Deliscious and fruity.

Had this beer at Brawley's in Charlotte NC. This beer is big, bold, and pungent. Since I'm a hop head, it was right up my alley. Wish they made this year round.

Golden orange color with a small white head. Smell is sweet and grapefruity. Malt sweetness dominates the flavor with some fruity hops poking through and a slightly bitter aftertaste. Good feel on this, lightly carbonated and medium body. Good DIPA, worth a pint.
