BEER INFO

Brewed by:

alpinebeerco.com

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.00%

Notes / Commercial Description:
Formerly Hop Boxed, then Unboxed.

Windows Up is a single IPA made with Mosaic and Citra hops. It pours a hazy straw color and is topped with bright white beer foam. Piney aromas mingle with fruity notes, while hints of citrus fruit and an overall lingering resinous quality lend a touch of complexity to this dank IPA.

L: bright amber with a light copper tint permeated by streams of rapidly rising bubbles.

S: mildly dank, with some citrus and pine notes and a trace of melon and biscuit.

T: A melon and biscuit start on the tongue cannot hide the start of oxidation flavors as wet cardboard lurks in the background

F: medium body and carbonation

O: somewhat long in the tooth but it is still drinkable and the big hops are enjoyable

Love this beer. Taste: Piney, light-medium resin and floral, balanced with bitter citrus. Has an almost tea-like tannin quality. Complex and highly drinkable.
