Look: straw, pretty clear golden yellow. semi thin white head.

Smell: fresh hops and god's vagina

Taste: best part of this beer by a landslide. how is it 9% ? nobody knows. well, at least i dont.

Feel: perfect mouthfeel for a beer of this style. Medium, maybe slightly medium plus.

Overall: more people should try this beer. It's the best hoppy beer / imperial IPA in CA, and probably whole West Coast.

Thank goodness it was available a few days ago when I visited SD and this brewery for the first time.

This beer is epic. just drink it and you will know.

one of alpine's best next to keene idea. You would never guess it's 9% considering how smooth and refreshing it is.

Best DIPA ive ever had. it is a hop monster but so drinkable, if it was available consistently it would dethrone Heady topper, which in my opinion is highly overrated.
