look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Enjoyed on NYE, poured from the bottle into a pint glass. Split with futureobrew.

Appeared a beautifully clear light orange/yellow color with a two finger paper white head.

Smell is phenomenal. Grapefruit, lemons, oranges, pine. Nice sugar/honey scents to back up the bitterness. Very fruity!

Taste is incredible. This is one of the most balanced "fruity" IPAs. Tastes like a fresh Florida grapefruit.

Mouthfeel is refreshing without being too thin. Alcohol is hidden. Bitter finish is backed by a nice malty sweetness.

Overall this is incredible, and I would take this over Pure Hoppiness any day. One of the best "single" IPAs I have ever had.

Poured from a 22oz bomber into a tulip glass.

A: Pours a nice clean golden/copper hue with a solid creamy head that dissipates within a few sips leaving solid lacing in my glass from start to finish.

S: Sweet and grassy, floral and spicy with some citrus/grapefruit essence in there too. The smell is real nice, but not as strong as I anticipated.

T: Clean, spicy hopiness that is balanced perfectly with a malty finish. Super crisp and very clean; honestly one of the best IPA's So-Cal has to offer - the quality is top notch.

M: Creamy and medium bodied with mild carbonation that really lends to the creaminess of this brew.

D: Real easy to drink - the prevalent hop is balanced perfectly with a sweet malty finish.

Fresh quality IPA that is just a cut above most others of the same style.

Ouch, lots of Lysol. Was hoping to like this better than Pure Hoppiness, but it is definitely worse. Aroma is a bit Funky behind the Lysol. Taste has a stale and sour element to it. Not Good.

22 oz. bomber poured into a tulip.

A: Light amber in color, with 1.5 fingers of white foam head that diminishes to a residue after a few minutes. Light lacing remains.

S: An onslaught of flowers and fruit. The smell does not remind of hops, or even of beer, but of some ambrosial substance.

T: Primarily light, acidic fruit (unripe apple, lime) with little complexity other than increasing bitterness in the finish. There is slight alcohol heat present--while unexpected in a beer of this style, it isn't really aggressive enough to detract from the enjoyment.

M: Minimal carbonation makes this beer feel slightly heavy and syrupy, which is outside the ideal range for the style.

D: This beer is a pleasure to drink, constrained only by the fact that, after repeated tastes, it seems a bit one-note. Any comparison to Ballast Point's Sculpin IPA is both appropriate and well-deserved.

A: Beautiful hazy, golden-yellow with a big fizzy, frothy, bright white head. Good lace and retention.

S: So floral and juicy. Huge resiny hops. Like freshly bloomed flowers. Pretty sticky and pungent. Some pine and freshly cut wood. Every aspect of a hop you want to taste in an IPA. So well-rounded.

T: Even more amazing than the nose which I didn't think would be possible. So fragrant and floral. Fruity, juicy, citrusy, woody, resiny, piney. Everything! A delicate but full-flavored IPA that has so much to love about it. Unbelievable.

M: Perfect amount of carbonation with a perfect amount of dryness and perfect body and feel. Top notch. Amazing bouquet of flavors explode on the palate and leave a very pleasant taste.

O: Not much I can say other than I was blown away. I knew how great this beer was going in and I knew Alpine is one of the best when it comes to IPA's but this was a dream. So incredible.

So another instant favorite from Alpine!

Super clear light yellow with slight amber color.

The smell is AMAZING. Sweet tangerine with lots of citrus notes.

The taste isnt as sweet at the smell but is still a great sweetness to bitterness ratio. Bitter at first with a smooth very sweet finish. Slightly dry but not as much as a lot of IPA's

Thanks to MbpBugeye for sharing.

Poured into a Delerium Tremens tulip. Took a rough pour to produce a small white head. Excellent clarity, the color of polished brass (think brand new trumpet). Left spotty lace.

Smells of amarillo alright. Nice tropical sweetness. Some bitter grapefruit and orange rind as well. There's also a sweet alcohol bite that I tend to get from beers that use honey as a fermentable. I'm not positive that's used here, but it smells similar (in the same vein as Hopslam).

Lots of pine in the taste. Also some dandelion grassiness, dried hay, with crisp and clean pilsner malts beneath.

Medium carbonation. Crisp. Clean. Not overly dry. The bitterness doesn't linger as long as it does in many IPA's.

Overall: I like this, but Columbus, OH has better imo.

look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

A - crystal clear middle amber that pours with a frothy 1.5 finger head. Bubbles float up throughout the glass and maintain a thin white film. Perfect looking IPA.

S - tiny tiny bit of citrus then a ton of grassy dank aroma with some piney finish. Very well integrated smell. It's darkness tastes great in that unexplainable way barnyard funk tastes good in a good sour.

T - piney hop resiny goodness. Again the favors are balanced and integrated perfectly. Taste is less dank or more piney than the nose.

M - smooth, smooth, smooth. Creamy and soft mouthfeel start to finish.

O - one of the best non citrusy IPA's I can recall. If you don't appreciate a piney dank IPA, and want you're tropical fruit, don't come here. Otherwise enjoy an outstanding beer.

A - Pours a clear orange with a one-finger creamy white. The head fades fast leaving a light sticky lacing.

S - Aroma of orange, grapefruit, and floral hops.

T - The flavor is orange, grapefruit, piney hops, and a sweet malty backbone. The finish has a nice lingering hop bitterness.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Crisp mouthfeel with a dry finish.

O - This was a damn fine IPA that definetly lived up to the hype.

Aggressive pour into pint glass yields 1/3 finger white head with good retention. More head though please. Crystal clear and golden. Pretty. On the very light side of IPAs. Minus points for that.
S: Tangerine, mango - Man Candy all the way! Some earthiness belowdecks is a nice accent. Maybe some savory garlic too. Some apple cidery esters too that tingle a bit but are not boozy.
T: Well balanced, clean crisp malt up front. Good gentle but substantial hop bitterness. Savory side and piney side of hops are stronger. Dances on the edge of APA and AIPA. So tasty. The only strike against it is that it seems more like an APA in balance. Too bad for semantics.
M: Very smooth, balanced, full-flavored. Dare I say perfect? Crisp but round.
O: Delicious and very drinkable for 7%. Smooth. I'd drink a lot of this if I lived in San Diego. I'll definitely buy again and have a second. Sarah likes this one a lot!

Growler courtesy of cuda7051. Poured into a large tulip.

A: Dark golden-orange body. Crystal clear with a nice stream of carbonation releasing straight out of the center. Large creamy white head that slowly receded while leaving a respectable amount of lacing down the sides of the glass after each sip.

S: The rich citric aroma was detectable the second i unscrewed the cap of the growler. In the glass, assertive tangerine, orange, mango, and nectarine aromas dominate over the background of a slightly resinous pine hop note.

T: Disappointing! Compare to the nose that is :) I knew it would be hard to live up to the exceptional nose, and the taste is certainly superb, but not the equal of the nose. Sweet citric hops like those described in the nose are present and ride atop a soft malt background. Not as assertive as the nose though. Clean bitterness in the back end.

M: Soft, light-medium bodied. Good, consistent carbonation. Clean, crisp finish.

D: An exceptional IPA right up there with Sculpin, Blind Pig, AleSmith IPA, Masala Mama and Furious as the tops in the category. This is an easy drinking brew that does not skimp on flavor and aroma.

First had on draft into pint tumbler. This IPA was overly sweet and rather disappointing, in view of the build-up for this and the rest of its beers upon Alpine's arrival in Mississippi.

Alpine Beer Company - Duet IPA

Got this one thanks to a trade.

Look - Pours a slightly hazy orange to copper to amber with a small foamy head that dissipates quickly and leaves lots of lacing.

Smell - Aroma is grapefruit citrus and a hint of bready malt, but the hops take center stage.

Taste - Big grapefruit citrus punch that gently fades into floral and leaves a slight sweet bready malt.

Mouthfeel - Rests sour citrus and very dry. Great drinkability. It's actually a bit of a gulper from the dry element. Light and crisp. Slight stomach warmer.

Overall - This is one of those times where one dimensional is a compliment. Grapefruit citrus blast, no bull.

Thanks to Thecherryman for making this Alpine bomber a reality, and a super fresh sample at that. Distribution is limited on Alpine, so getting a hold of these despite the 2012 increase in production is a chore unless you live in Southern Cali.

Pours halfway between a clear and cloudy off orange hue with a 1 finger soapy white head that lasts a few minutes, lacing is adequate.

The nose is very juicy in a tropical sense yet there is a distinct malt bill in there that prevents it from being an all out hop bomb. Pineapple,nectarine, and lime tones invite the first sip.
While Duet is a hop forward IPA, there is a terrific balance of bready malts in there with the tropical fruit juciness that just works, plain and simple.

Flavors are matched by the inviting nose: the Amarillo and simcoe hops are well chosen and put forth delicious flavors that are complex and multidimensional. Carbonation is lively and well suited for the style, sort of a medium body that is somewhat sticky and oily.

The aftertaste is pleasant, never bitter or boozy, and lets you know the hop selection was well thought out. Very highly recommended, Duet proves to be tough to acquire given their lack of distribution as are other Alpine offerings.This is a world class IPA I would be glad to drink again, and I am looking forward to the arrival of more Alpine varieties to taste and review.

Bottle in a trade with saru96. This is my first Alpine beer, and I've been anticipating this day for some time. Since this isn't a high-gravity beer, I think I'll drink this solo. Get it? Cause Duet... Here we go. Poured from bomber into a standard snifter.

A- Pour does not yield much of a head. A thin white head dissipates quite quickly, leaving some lacing. Dark straw color for this beer. Slight haze, though pretty translucent. Somewhat spotty lacing on the glass as I drink.

S- Pretty standard for a West Coast IPA. Unquestionable citrus aromas of orange zest, grapefruit, lemongrass. Some faint grassy, piney aromas play into the mix as well. What I'm struck by is the balance here. Makes me excited for it to hit my palate.

T- The balance on the nose is followed well on the flavor, only a little less robust. Nothing in your face, just some mild hop bitterness harmonizing wonderfully with the same grapefruit and orange flavors, with a kiss of sweetness from the malt. Very crisp, clean flavors that are wonderfully refreshing.

M- Decent amount of carbonation with a light, crisp mouthfeel. This one could very easily be sessionable. No hint of the alcohol, just hops and citrus flavors coating the palate. The bitterness lingers, too, which is always enjoyable.

O- Quite a melody this one sings. Balance is they key here as all the flavors and aromas sing their melodies and harmonies with delicate precision. This is a really enjoyable beer, and I'm really glad I got my hands on two. Now, to finish off this bottle. Cheers!

This beer pours and almost clear orange-honey with a very nice head. The grapefruit aroma hits me first, along with other citrus peel, followed by a small hint of pineapple, and then a grassy aroma. The flavor leans more heavily toward this grassy earthy flavor first, with the refreshing citrus more apparent on the back end. The mouthfeel is thick but not syrupy, infact there is a pleasantly small amount of astringency right on the end that dried out the swallow. Overall a really solid west coast style IPA, maybe not as dry as I would prefer, but very good.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: pours a deep copper orange color. a two finger or so tan head forms and sticks around for a while. leaves behind a strong and frothy lacing along the entire height of the glass. good strong clarity and good brightness.

Smell: hops, some citrus, some pine and resin, lighter tropical fruits. crystal malt sweetness. and some toasted grains.

Taste: opens with hops, mostly pine, earth and resin. malts are fairly strong and ranging from a strong and sweet crystal malts to toasted grains. more hops come in at the end mostly some citrus but some light tropical fruits as well.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied. moderate bitterness and linger. slightly refreshing.

Overall: a nice ipa but nothing too out of the ordinary. not quite the malt character that I look for and could use a bit more hop character and/or less crystal malt character.

Green Flash made, best by 12 May 2016. Seriously, can we get a bottling date??

A: Poured into an IPA glass to a clear and bright gold topped by two fingers of dense and slightly rocky head that leaves decent lacing
S: Smells of juicy citrus with some notes of grapefruit and a little pine. Slight malt sweetness on the nose as well.
T: Taste is juicy citrusy hops with some grapefruit, a little pineapple and some pine resin. Slight toasty malt note adds some balance and the swallow is more oily hop notes with pine and grapefruit rind leading the charge
M: Mouthfeel is on the lighter side of medium with perfect carbonation and a nice oily finish from the hops.
O: This is a great beer with some fantastic flavors and complexity. This his all the right boxes as a West Coast IPA. Definitely one to grab if you see it.

Poured into a snifter at small tasting session.

A: Hazy Golden Wheat color with a small ring of head with swirls of bubbles in the middle.

S: Piney, Citrus Hops up front, also some nice Bready Malts to counter balance. Awesome IPA aroma.

T: Hops up front (from the aroma), really nice sweetness also. A Malt center to the taste leads to a bitter dry finish at the back of the palate. Grapefruit and Pine are dominant flavors, from the Simcoe and Amarillo hops the beer is based on. Great balance, excellent flavor.

M: Medium bodied, and delightfully creamier than I would have guessed, though still well carbonated. Excellent.

D: Very Great IPA, up there with the greats in the single IPA realm for me. Wish I could get this whenever I wanted to, but hey it makes having these really special too.

On tap, poured into a pub glass.
Appearance - gold in color; light in carbonation; very thin white head that leaves lazy lacing.
Smell - I pick up a blend of pine and citrus; very nice, but not outstanding as I hoped it would be.
Taste - makes up for the nose; great hop flavors of citrus, pine and some grass; delicious!
Feel - hop bomb, yet relaxed enough not to blow your head off!
Overall - this was one that I've waited for some time for; a bit disappointed, because I was expecting much more...that being said, this is a well crafted, hop forward IPA that I would no doubt have again!

Received this one from BA mohaghandi as an extra in a recent trade. Enjoyed out of a 22 oz brown bomber with no dating that I can find on the bottle to indicate when it was bottled or by when it should be enjoyed. Poured into the Speigelau IPA-specific glass.

Appearance - Poured with standard aggressiveness, which yields a creamy two-finger eggshell colored head consisting of mostly small, densely-packed bubbles. Retention is quite good, with the head never completely receding, instead settling as a half-finger buffer atop the body. That body is a slightly hazy blend of brassy amber and saturated carrot orange, with the darker hue residing in the bulbous part of the glass, and the lighter hue in the ridged base. There is sticky, sparse lacing on the sides of the glass as I drink the liquid down, but doesn't quite reach the level of full on rings.

Smell - Wonderfully fragrant notes of tropical fruit--mostly mango--alongside more pungent aromas of tangerine and citrus zest. To be honest, it's the impression of more the sweeter side of the citrus spectrum, with not much in the way of grapefruit or pith. Maybe some blood orange as well? There is a nice bready malt base under the tropical-citrus explosion, but it stays out of the way.

Taste - A lot of the same characteristics as the smell, with mango, passionfruit and tangerine leading the way, but now some interesting bitterness comes in by way of red grapefruit and papaya. The grain base is there, but again is content to sit backstage, ensuring that nothing goes wrong while the deliciously fruity hops dance out on stage in full spotlight. Very easily consumed and drinkable.

Mouthfeel - Medium-to-light bodied and moderate carbonation, with a refreshingly juicy aspect to the feel.

Overall, just an excellent IPA. And as I'm aware it's made with Simcoe and Amarillo, I can't help but think to myself that perhaps Amarillo is my favorite hop of all. It seems to be present in many of my favorite beers. This one is no different. Too bad I can't get Alpine in my neck of the woods, or online, for that matter. Not that I'm saying anything that hasn't been said about this beer, but if you see it, and you like IPAs, get it. End of story.

Picked up at the brewery during my San Diego trip last week. Poured from a 22oz bottle into a pint glass. No dating info but since got at the brewery it's gotta be fresh and well handled. It was a slightly hazy golden color with some floaters in it. Lots of carb streams and great lacing. It had a massive white head that very slowly settled into a foam.

The aroma was excellent. The Duet in here is Amarillo and Simcoe hops "in harmony" and they blended amazingly. Very pleasant floral hops, grapefruit and pine. A real joy to sniff over and over. The taste followed the aroma and again was outstanding. Starts out with a little malt and then the hops kick in and build to a bitter finish. Dry finish as well. I really liked the hop mix and the touch of malt keeps it from being overly bitter at the end. Mouthfeel is solid with slightly creamy texture. Dry finish as noted. Carb was too high and tinkled the tongue right as the hops were cresting so drowned them out a bit.

Overall, an excellent AIPA that I most highly recommend. Worthy of the hype and praise. During my trip, I got to try a sample on tap at the brewery and then several more pints on-tap at the bars. On-tap is slightly better but the bottle is still excellent. They are an amazing brewery and can't wait to try the rest I brought home. Rotation: not avail here but I have a source who lives in SD so this will become a regular shipment. At about $4 for 22oz's you can't beat the enjoyment to price ratio.

Thanks to weeheavySD for the growler!

A: Fairly tame golden copper color with a clean complexity. Just a few bubbles meander up to the top. Head is medium sized with a decent creaminess to it, a basic whipped butter color.

S: Vibrant green grapefruit zest, lemon essence, distant pine forest wavering on a subtle breeze, strawberry fields, watermelon and crystallized mango. Exceptional aroma.

T: Starts off with that “Alpine” buttery hop sensation that massages the tongue with its smooth texture. There’s a little bit of yellow apple, green melon, clover honey and a whole lotta star fruit. You know that flavor that hits the tip of your tongue when you bite into a plum? I get a lot of that as well as iced tea and marjoram. The flavor sort of falls short after this point and doesn’t get any more complex. The flavor lingers for a while and is quite nice but finishes right about here

M: Medium body and soft

D: Seriously quaffable and easy to drink. The growler really didn’t stand a chance. It wasn’t the most complex beer but it has a really nice flavor with long lingering flavor.

Poured from a bottle into a La Fin du Monde tulip. The pour is pale gold, fairly clear, and sports about 2 fingers of fine white foam with good retention. The nose gives lemon zest, orange rind, a little bit of sweet toasted malt.

Medium-light body with a delicate feel and a balanced flavor that is dry throughout. Very light cracker-like graininess up front, then sharp hop flavors that are restrained and supported by malty flavors of toast and honey. Some pine and cedar and a little bit of lemon. The hop flavors seem undecided. Do I want to be resiny and piney or do I want to be citrusy? While the hops argue, the malt just lingers around. The finish is lemon and honey and rather short-lived.

I kind of knew what I was getting into when I bought this beer. I believe it has been around for a while and is not a "modern IPA". Nevertheless, this does not represent what I think a West coast IPA is. With the toasted malt character and subdued hop profile, it drinks more like a classic English IPA. It's a good beer, but it is very over-priced at $14 per six-pack. I'm not buying this again, nor can I recommend it. Still, I know this brewery is capable of pushing the proverbial envelope and I wouldn't hesitate to try more of their offerings.

Pours a clear crisp orange color with a thin white head. Head dissipates rather quickly leaving some small white foam spots.

Smell has aromas of orange, grapefruit, orange zest, pine, with some floral undertones.

Taste follows the nose with notes of orange, orange zest, grapefruit with a just as prominent pine-y bitterness. Strong caremly but not super sweet tasting malt backbone provides a nice balance. Lots of piney bitterness throughout with a dry sappy finish.

Feel is a bit heavy for an IPA. Sweetness coats the mouth as you drink it. Medium carbonation provides a slight tingle initially for just a moment.

Overall a fine example of a classic west coast IPA. Great beer that is a must try at least once, although you'll likely drink it again.
