On tap at Alpine

Orange to amber in color with a finger of white head. Whispy lacing doesn't cling to the glass for long. The nose is pure hops. Extremely reminiscent of Exponential Hoppiness. Taste is huge citrus and hemp. Again, very similar to Expo. Orange and mango are prominent up front with hemp, pine and grapefruit developing toward the back end. Finish is dry with a lingering bitter aftertaste.
Feel is thick and viscous, befitting a brew of this gravity. Overall a great beer from two of my favorite breweries. It definitely favors the Alpine side of the equation, which is not a bad thing at all. Recommended.

22 oz bottle poured into a tulip at cellar temperature.

L – Pale amber color with a 2-finger frothy white head. Nice retention and really nice lacing. Very close to clear with not many bubbles at all.

S – Tons of hops with mostly grapefruit, pine, mango, and orange aromas, but also this interesting floral, herbal, earthy aroma that is difficult to put my finger on. I really can’t get much in the way of malt – maybe the tiniest bit of bready malt. This one is gonna be a bitter beast.

T – I was right. It starts off sweet with a little bready malt and citrus. This sweetness lasts for maybe a half-second. Then, the bitterness really starts to pick up. A huge hop flood takes over the taste with grapefruit, orange, mango, pine, and floral notes. Really tasty.

F – Medium-to-full-bodied with decent carbonation for the amount of bubbles, a sticky, chewy, and mouth-coating feel, and a very bitter and very dry finish. Grapefruit and pine hop bitterness lingers nicely and pairs well with the palate-and-throat-warming sensation from the alcohol.

O – This is a delicious DIPA if you’re a hop-lover – if you’re not a hop-lover, why are you drinking a DIPA called Super IPA anyway? A few reasons why it doesn’t get a higher rating from me: There’s not much in terms of malt anywhere to be found in this. That’s ok because the hop bouquet is so tasty, but I’d like to see it just a little more balanced. Also, it isn’t the most drinkable DIPA that I’ve had (that award goes to Hopslam – how they hide 10% ABV is beyond me). However, for the amount of bitterness and for the 9% ABV, it is very drinkable. New Belgium usually gets it right, especially with the Lips of Faith series, and this is no exception. Collaboration with Alpine is clearly a bonus, as well. Awesome beer.

22oz poured into a pint glass. No date indication.n

A- Pours a clear pale, somewhat of a strong pour turns into about a half a finger head. Head is pure white, small bubbles, fades a bit but covers the beer and hangs around.

S- it's a battle between citrus hops and piney/grassy hops . Very interesting a pleasing

T- oily grassy juicy hops. Lots of green in the flavor. Faint orange and sweet malts

M- medium oily body that coats the tounge, carbonation is light.

O- Great refreshing double, can't tell it's 9%. Wish it was summer out because this is very refreshing. Awesome change up from your typical double grapefruit bombs.

22oz bottle, shared with my brother in tumbler glasses. I scored the last two bottles on the shelf at my local bottle shop!

A- Nice golden color, with plenty of bubbly carbonation. Mild amount of head, perfect lacing.

S- Huge notes of citrus, plenty of hops. Nice floral aroma with what I can only describe as a "west coast IPA" smell.

T- Again, citrus bomb! Lots of grapefruit and orange up front, with some floral notes and lots of pine from the hops. Perfectly sweet and quite a nice mouthfeel. Great carbonation.

O- I cannot believe how incredible this IPA is. Never had anything from Alpine before, but this has to be the best collaboration beer from New Belgium so far. Such a great IPA, I am leaning towards questioning some of my favorites....pick it up if you can find it!

Picked this up on a recent trip to Nashville...

Poured into my Founders tulip...

Fresh pungent burst of dank piney hops with a tinge of onion/garlic which I usually detest but it isn't overpowering here... It's a role player but not the lead role player if you get my drift... Maybe a little orange going on here as well... It's definitely pungent... Not getting any of the 9% either...

This beer means business from the first sip... Very prevalent piney hops with only a hint of the aforementioned onion/garlic and a big burst of bitterness reminiscent of orange zest... That being said, the sweetness of the malts seems to keep this from being a one trick pony... At 9%, the alcohol is surprisingly absent from the flavors and it's a little disconcerting... I'm glad I have only one of these as were there 2.... well.... It's the rest of the afternoon snoozing on the couch... Packs a wallop but you wouldn't know it from the taste...

A very good effort from both breweries here... I concur with previous opinions that this should be at least seasonal.... It's very well done and delicious....

From 22 oz bomber into a tulip.

A-Quite clear. The color is copper tinted gold. The one-finger head is pretty thin and off-white to tan. It died quickly, but left a decent cap that hung around for a while.

S-Sweet hops. Almost lush and tropical with some nice pineapple notes. There is citrus, but I would say more orange than lemon. I didn't pick up much alcohol. There is a slight earthy note underneath all the sweetness, and a hint of spice.

T-Taste mostly follows the smell. Not much malt for me, but some serious pineapple and mildly earthy (sage, pine and onion?) hop flavors. There is some alcohol spice/heat as the beer warms up, but I thought this balanced the sweetness. I found this brew to be pretty well-balanced, but I like the sweeter things in life...so take my assessment with a grain of salt.

M-enjoyable and drinkable, but not memorable. This brew had lighter carbonation and medium body. Was not resinous when compared to others, e.g., Pliny.

O-I liked this beer quite a bit. It's no Pliny, but has a similar nose and flavor profile. If you like the sweeter side of hops and want a nice drinking IPA to finish off your summer, I would recommend checking this out.

PS--I also had this on tap, but did not take notes. My recollection of the smell, taste, and mouthfeel for the tap version are also positive.

Aroma is SERIOUSLY hoppy - woody and evergreen with a strong grapefruit underpinning. Super IPA indeed! Pours a clear amber with a nice white head. Typical, but still appealing. Flavor is - holy cow, VERY hoppy, both evergreen and woody, as if a madman added the hops! Nevertheless, bitterness is minimal. Malty and fruity tones manage to sneak through, the latter mainly grapefruit and Mandarin orange; there is also a whisper of honey sweetness. Firm-bodied texture has plenty of lively tingle, leaving a very hoppy and yet subtly sweet finish. Super IPA? Hell yes!

Pours reddish gold with a two finger white head.

Hops explode out of the bottle. Aroma pervades the room. Hops hops hops. When I first opened the bottle I got a lot of fruit and that's still there when I really get into it. Melon is dominant, not cantaloupe but some other weird melon that's like it. I'm not smelling much pine, more like spicy forest floor.

What a cool beer. Starts gently but a wave of earthy hops starts in the mid palate and crests into a huge finish. That bitterness on the back end melds really well with the 9% abv. So at the front you get a nice little bit of malty sweetness but then the hops kick your butt. The aftertaste reminds me of what's left in your mouth after eating some really spicy mustard greens.

Yum yum yum. Not your typical pine tree/grapefruit bomb of an imperial ipa. Well balanced and fun to drink.

Appearance: pours a clear orange color with a 2"head that lasts a while. Nice lace paints the glass.

Smell: caramel, pine,grapefruit, and a strong hop presence.

Taste: big caramel flavor with loads of grapefruit, pine, pear, and an earthy and oily bitterness. Light alcohol flavor.

Mouthfeel: medium-heavy in body. Lightly crisp to start, smoother and dry at the finish. Long lasting aftertaste.

Overall: a very enjoyable big hoppy beer. Slow sipping but satisfying. Great beer.

Poured from bottle to glass.

A: A clarified apricot/orange with a slightly off-white head that took 1.5 -2 inches of the glass and provided excellent lacing throughout the beer.

S: The hops dominate the aroma with citrus and floral tones.

T: A very quick light malty caramel flavor at the front, quickly followed by grapefruit and slightly lesser pine. I get a quick hint of spiciness from the hops almost a licorice/anise quality followed by the floral hops. This beer has a clean and dry finish.

M: A medium body with well balance of carbonation.

Not the hop slam I was expecting but a very good DIPA. A definite must try in my book and one that I wuold buy again.

Alpine Beer Company & New Belgium Super India Pale Ale

Appearance: This collaboration between rock solid craft giant New Belgium and the highly lauded, but sadly tiny Alpine Beer Company pours a golden, hay yellow with about a finger of bone white head. This beer looks a bit light for being an IPA, much less a super one; it honestly looks more like one expects most lagers and pilsners to look. The head does not stick around long, but it leaves a nice crust of bubbles atop the golden liquid. There is not much carbonation visible through the glass, another strange characteristic not typical of IPAs, but there is a distinctive hop haze, a sure sign of hoppy deliciousness. It is tough to predict what this beer is going to be like because of how drastically it seems to have broken from IPA tradition.

Aroma: As expected, this beer is a delicious bouquet of hoppiness. There is plenty of citrus in the form or grapefruit, oranges, tangerines, and apricots, plenty of tropical fruits that come through mainly as pineapple (and maybe kiwi? Weird), floral scents, and pine rounds out the nose. Beneath all of this there is a small, yet solid malt backbone. This smells a lot like Lagunitas Hop Stoopid offering; hopefully the taste is equal to that fantastic brew.

Taste: While it does not taste much like the aforementioned Hop Stoopid, this is a great deviation from those expectations. This beer follows the nose pretty closely with one major difference: mangoes. Mangoes are huge in this one, and they are a wonderful addition to the already delicious citrus fruits, big pineapple notes, hoppy bitterness (though not overpoweringly so), and a nice, sweet and light malt. This beer is out of this world as far as taste goes.

Mouthfeel: This category is not as much of a homerun as taste, but it is still very palatable. The mango taste comes hand-in-hand with a certain creaminess (perhaps a trick of the mind). The carbonation is medium, but it works for the beer and makes it just refreshing enough to keep the drinker imbibing. The bitterness does not give an astringent aftertaste, which is a bit disappointing for this reviewer, but it is definitely there regardless. The beer is also a bit on the thin side for an imperial IPA. Still, these few gripes aside, this beer remains quality through and through.

Overall: If this is any indication of the awesomeness that is Alpine, I may have to move to San Diego. Hopefully this one is still tossing around store shelves, because it is definitely worth a double dip. New Belgium should definitely revisit this collaboration again in the future, regardless. This one is going to go down way too fast for its 9% ABV. Believe the hype; this is one of the best Lips of Faith offerings out there. 16.5/20

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.

Poured from a bomber into a snifter. Beautiful golden orange and about a finger of eggshell white head. Retained excellent lacing down the glass as I drank. One of the better smelling beers I've had lately, floral hops with grapefruit and pine undertones. Alcohol odor is present, but well concealed. Tastes even better than it smells, bomb of hops detonated on the palate, followed by a subtle malt finish with the alcohol coming through with the after taste. Mild carbonation and incredibly smooth and easy to drink. Over all one of the better ipas I've ever had, so long as this beer stays in stock it will be in my fridge often

Alpine and New Belgium making a Lips of Faith Super IPA – what an incredible surprise this was to find on the shelf. Hell yes.

A: A rich, creamy eggshell head comes frothing over a crystal-amber, smooth-pouring body, with full foamy retention to match. Smooth, soapy layer of lacing stretches over every inch of the glass – wonderful.

S: SWEET JESUS those are some face-melting hops. Dank, dank pine and resin with blasts of grapefruit and golden citrus; it’s more herbally pine-and-oil-laden than any nose I can remember coming across. Lemon and a light, white, crackery breadiness lay beneath. Hopheads rejoice.

T: Hop oil. That’s it. On a bed of bready malt and caramel it sits, tongue-smackingly bitter but balanced by a smooth, ambery sweetness – grapefruit and pine to the core. Reminds me of a Hopslam or a Schlafly AIPA without the big honey flavors; it’s more hop-forward. Floral sweetness and buttery, baked pineapple are evident amongst the hop storm, too, a dedicated attempt to reign the bitter beast. Thankfully, it works, making the beer’s aftertaste mild and impressively drinkable – only a hint of clean alcohol and some leafy astringency remains. Near perfection.

M: Mild and drinkable, owing a lot of its feel to the crackling bubble of the carbonation. Not too hard, not too soft, and not too hot (though the warmth of alcohol is there), this IPA satisfies on all levels.

O: I don’t know if this is more New Belgium or more Alpine, but I am in love. Holy hell is this a wonder of a beer – and at a little over $6.00 for a bomber, it’s one of the best values I’ve had in a beer since Pliny. If you see it, BUY IT!

Appearance: Hazy yellow, good head.

Smell: Started weird and oxidized, after a few minutes those aromas disappeared. Citrus, oranges, hint of caramel were left.

Taste: Really tasty! Fruity sweets--mandarin oranges, pineapple. Finishes with a citrus rind bitterness.

Overall: I was worried this was old at first with the smell, but it cleared up after a few minutes. The taste was great, I've tasted oranges plenty of times in beers but not mandarin oranges--it kicked up the sweetness where I really enjoyed it. Plenty of bitterness in the finish too, for an all-around hop experience.

22 oz bomber purchased for $7.99. Pours a cloudy golden color with a huge fluffy head. Medium bodied, nice tropical/grapefruit initial taste, nicely balanced with the malts. A very smooth, drinkable IPA, especially for the higher ABV. This seems a bit fruitier and lighter than most IPAS (double IPA none the less) and it's a welcome change. Makes for a very refreshing, well rounded, easy to quaff brew. Nice collaboration effort here and highly recommended.

22 oz bottle poured into a New Belgium globe.
9% ABV, number in label.

A - Bright mostly clear golden yellow in color, Super IPA has a frothy off-white head with loose root beer float-like bubbles and sticky lacing clutching the glass.

S - Bright citrusy hop aromas combine with soft earthy grass notes for a floral, jungle-like double IPA punch. Sweet mango with pineapple and lemon and grapefruit rind play off of the sharp wood chip nose and sweet, secondary malt profile. Good balance keeps it from being overwhelming here.

T - The flavor is a direct mirror of the aroma, really showcasing the balance of fruity and earthy hops for a delicate balancing act of wood and grass with citrus and exotic fruit blends. Malt remains a thing of afterthought, content to keep the hops balanced but elevated with it's caramel sweetness. What keeps it from utter greatness is the over-hopped finish of burnt rubber and hint of onion that I find common among powerful double IPAs.

M - Super IPA is crisp and refreshing starting with it's lean, medium-lighter body and mysteriously absent alcohol and moves into an amalgam of dry bitterness that's both welcome and aggressive at the same time. The lingering finish wont let go, almost clawing at your throat with bitter, sticky resin the whole way down.

O - Aside from the burnt rubber-like finish of the flavor, which isn't all that out of the ordinary, Super IPA from New Belgium is pretty outstanding. A hop head's delight, it combines powerfully earthy hops with the likes of bright citrusy, resiny ones for a delectable pretty drinkable double IPA!

22oz bomber split on a crisp Sat afternoon

A- beautiful orange amber enjoyed in tulip with light lacing that hung out for the entire glass

S- crisp, piney--great nose

T- BLOWN away. Really wasn't expecting how solid this one turned out to be. Pine, citrus and biting hop up front. Very West Coast. Smooth finish.

M- full body. Not syrupy

O- best thing New Belgium has done. I think it took their partners to get them in the right direction as nothing of theirs that I have had comes close. Only able to get my hands on three-too bad. I hope they do this one again.

Poured from bomber to pint glass.

A- Poured a clean golden yellow body, little head retention that settled to a decent cap, kinda slippery lacing, light uniformed carbonation.

S- Piney hops, tropical fruit nothing too complex but solid.

T- Follows the nose... Pine hop, apricots, some grapefruit and pineapple, floral notes and some sweet malt to balance it out. Not very bitter for an ipa, but a great balance.

MF- Smooth light-medium body, medium carbonation. The taste hangs around for a few seconds (tropical fruits and sweet malts), but the pine hops stick around a lot longer.

O- Great unique flavor. It is definitely worth a try at a reasonable price. I would like to get my way around to some more lips of faith series brews!

A: Lemon-tea brown hue with a large head that dissipates to a thin but steady film; lacing is fantastic

S: Wow, that smells good: grapefruit, mango, orange, apricot; this is hop forward, for sure; in fact, it's difficult to discern much beyond the hops--a subtle sweet bready base but mostly citrus fruits galore

T: That is a delicious DIPA--so much citrus bitter hops with a decent amount of sweet slightly burnt malts to attempt to bring balance

F: Texture is where this beer shines--one of the most full bodied, creamy DIPAs I've ever had

O: Such a wonderful, big hoppy beer; I love Alpine and I like New Belgium and I love this beer; such a well-executed collaboration beer

A- Clearish golden body with a fluffy white head that leaves a nice lacing. Very small bubbles. The head dissipates, but continues to have a nice foam cap.

A- Wonderful hoppy aroma. Piney citrusy aroma. Nice and heavy on the aroma hops.

T- Similar to aroma. The aroma hops bitterness and a nice sweet maltiness seems to be about it. No heavy bitterness. Delicious.

M- Light/medium body. Low carbonation.

D- Delicious beer. Worth the price for at least one. Very fresh IPA flavors, no need to age.

Pours an orangey copper with a thick, foamy thumbs width white head. Wonderful retention and lacing. A beautiful aroma; a huge hit of pine hits first and then flows into a beautifully sweet fruity (pineapple, clementines and peaches) finish. A touch of malt hides underneath everything providing just a touch of some breadiness. Honestly, everything I could want in an aroma for a IIPA. Favor follows suit pretty much to a 'T' with a decent amount of bitterness. A nice smooth, creamy mouthfeel with just the right amount of activity. Overall, very nice. I usually don't care for piney/resiny IPA's but it worked perfectly in this beer, and I'd have to imagine the freshness of this plays a big part in it.

A - Pours a slightly hazy golden-orange with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some nice lacing.

S - Aroma is full of grapefruit, citrus, and pine hops with some sweet caramel and biscuit malts.

T - Starts off with a mix of grapefruit, pineapple, and citrus hops with some bitterness and some sweet caramel malts. Through the middle, some pine and grassy hops with some resiny bitterness come through with some biscuity malts. The finish is a mix of pine and grapefruit hops, bitterness, and sweet caramel and biscuity malts.

M - Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry, bitter, and resiny finish.

D - Very drinkable. Good hop profile and bitterness throughout with good overall balance.

Dude, how could I not pick up anything in my area with the name "Alpine Brewing" on it?

Served in a Mad Elf tulip.

A: Poured impeccably clear and glistening with gold. The head was sticky, mildly off-white, and carried about 2-3 fingers worth.

S: Pow hop pine bomb! This wasn't of the typical leafy variety I've had so much of here lately. This was much more pine cone with cinnamon!

T: I think the sort of cinnamon quality is what sets this apart. Sure, this one begins like a really nice DIPA, but the spice content sticks to the palate like glue. After a few more sips, I started to get a bit more "clean cotton" undertow that was absolutely divine!

M: The pine could have easily strayed into solvent territory, but it never did. I honestly would have guessed no greater than 7% ABV on this one, but alas... this is 9%! The lacing was ridiculous.

O: Yes, I do consider myself a hero for getting an "Alpine" brew outside of San Diego.

I just received this beer from a BIF. My thanks to SirWilliam for his generosity in the shipment.

This beer is a bright orange with about a finger and a half of foam. This led to some pretty decent lacing in the glass.

The nose and body have tons of citrus hops to them. You also get a fair amount of malt to balance out the generous presence of hops in this. You get a decent amount of bitterness (not a surprise considering the amount of hops in this).

This is a very good uber-IPA. I'm glad to be provided a bottle in my BIF.
