Refreshingly light but packed (and I mean packed) with hop flavor. Bitterness is there but hides with the malts behind the massive hops flavor and aroma. Fruity, floral, danky, cat pissy goodness. Lots of pineapple and citrus dipped herbs and flowers. Tastes like the sticky hop cones are still floating in the beer. This was shipped to me from across the country, but must be super fresh. I'm a believer in the west coast IPAs and this is no exception. Cant wait to see this stuff in Ohio.

Phinally in Philly!!! On tap at TRIA Tap Room. A lot smoother than the Hoppy Birthday. Much more balanced and less bitter. A great IPA, but I like hops and high IBU, so I went back to the Hoppy Birthday.

I was wildly underwhelmed by Alpine's first offering to make it on tap to the Pittsburgh area. Don't get me wrong- it was fine and drinkable, but it didn't blow my mind like I wanted it to. I'm going to give this a second shot when it gets a wider east coast release in the fall.
