A: Deep golden yellow orange boy with a one finger head.

S: Very strong sweet hops, caramel, and toffee. Normally, not a fan of the sweet hop aroma and flavor but here it works perfectly with rich body of the beer.

T: One of the best IPAs I've had. On par with Double Sunshine, Pliny the Younger, and Heady Topper. Very sweet rich body with caramel, toffee, and some burt sugar. The pine and earthy hops come forward immediately and balance the sweet malt flavors. Well done Alpine.

M: Thick creamy body with a little lacking in carbonation but overall very good.

O: In my top 5 IPAs I've had. Worth mentioning in the same sentence as HT, Younger, Double Sunshine, and Citra.
