Golden, and cloudy in a crisp sort of way. Moderately carbonated, with two fingers of off-white head.

Smells of light pineapples, tropical fruits, and Caramel malts. Very light on the nose.

Grapefruit pith, light pineapple notes, pears, and tropical fruits.

Medium to light body, with little carbonation.

I got this in Chico California a week ago. Drinking in Redding California today, August 26, 2018. Reminds me of Pliny in someways.

The feel and look of this one are world class. Juicy, watery, round mouthfeel and transitions from cloudy gold to glassy gold in the mug. Taste is simple IPA but very well done orange peel and lemon with some malt background. A+ stuff from Alpine. BTW, Alpine is a nice hilly community in San Diego for those that don't know. I'm impressed that that small community that has so few stores and looks like the Wild West with one old school Western street can produce this!

Loved it when I first had it but the last few times I just felt it was boring. Surely a classic but not keeping my interest.

Well-balanced but it’s just a citrus and pine old school west coast IPA. Very good but once again, not my favorite.

pours with a yellow/golden color; the smell is very citrusy, hops and pine. Taste is wonderful balance of the hops, citrus (grapefruit; tropical fruit); some malts and a bit of hops bitterness at the end. The feel is crisp and clean. Awesome beer.

Pours a hazed copper color with a compact, frothy cap. Simcoe fruitiness mingles with cookie dough malts in the nose. Citrusy, peach, melon hops abound in the taste. A solid, clean pale malt ballast keeps things in check. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a light carbonation. Tons of floral, fruity hops in the everlasting finish.

This is a fantastic, benchmark, super hoppy IPA. Complex, very high bitterness, but easy to drink. A must try.
