Formerly Hop Boxed, then Unboxed.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Straw and clean filtered with little carbonation and 3 fingers of white head.

Smells really dank, of catnip, green leaf, sage, as well as of pineapple and mangos.

Tastes of the same dank qualities as the nose, and is sweet and fruity as well, tropical fruits giving way to yellow jello.

Medium body with moderate to low carbonation. Really covers the ABV.

Got in Sacramento a couple weeks ago, drinking in Redding, Sept 16th, 2018. Excellent brew.

Clear golden color with white head. Aroma has candied orange, orange peel, tangerine and resiny hops. Taste has sweet tangerine notes and resiny hops but not overly bitter. Medium body and carbonation. Decent IPA but very generic.

A absolute perfect IPA ! A great blend of hops with a slight citrus fruit taste. Fresh and robust flavor!

poured into a 12oz snifter glass via draft at City Works (King of Prussia, PA)

color is a nice amber/honey yellow
Smell is light citrus (Orange, Lemon Zest)
taste follows the nose, slightly sweeter than I expected, and some malt to round it out
medium body and carbination
not one of my favorite Alpine beers , but it went down easy and I drank a few!

Classic west coast ipa with some grapefruit an other citrus but also tropical fruits in the mix. The caramel malt is nice and not overly strong. Quite drinkable

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
