What an odd looking beer. Not sure if this is typical, but the beer appears to have a slight green hue. Fortunately it smells great, lots of citrus. Taste is a notch below the smell, but still a high quality IPA, wasn't wowed by it based on Alpine hype. Would happily drink this again, but don't plan to seek it out.

On tap in the brew pub and multiple bottle.
Pours a great hazy orange even my non drinking wife was blown away. Just a great looking beer. Like all Alpine beer I've ever had the nose is beautiful and fruity. Beautiful balance, long smooth finish. I love Nelson hops and this is my favorite example. A top 5 beer of all time for me for sure.
