    Just drink them. You're not going to try one and dump it.

    I'd save Nelson for last but only because it's my personal favorite

    Pour them into a pitcher and try all at once! j/k. I'd go with Pure Hoppiness first, but that's just my favorite of the three.

    Pure Hoppiness is the one that fades the least quickly. I'd go Duet, then Nelson, then Pure.

    Make a DuHop as served in the pub. I think it's 50/50 but not sure. That shit is good.

    I love when people say, "just drink them." You are not getting the enjoyment and fulfillment out of craft brews like the majority of us. Pop open a Natty Ice already

    DuHop is actually the best thing I have ever had from Alpine!! Mixed in a growler. Damn that was good. Forgot about that til now.....F*** now I want some!!

    Yeah, just drink PH last because in my experience both Duet and Nelson lose flavor and that fruity nose quickly. I would drink all three within a 2 week period to get the most out of them and drink PH last like many have suggested.

    I just had two Duets because no Nelson at the brewery and it is seriously so damn good. Alpine, if you are reading, brew more Nelson!!!

    In the time it took the OP to type this question he could have already been drinking.

    Was thinking about making a trip up there (and can't read the damn web cam) - anyone have an update as to what's currently available in growlers?

    FYI, the web cam is so that the brewer(s) can watch the tanks, not so customers can see what's on tap.

    Thanks - I thought it was just poor design (kind of like when I check the pizza port cameras after hours when the lights are turned off),

    That depends, have you ever told someone to just drink something?

    If you are cracking 3 bombers of an IPA (especially an IPA with as much flavor and punch as anything from Alpine) in one sitting than you are definitely "not getting the enjoyment and fulfillment out of craft brews like the majority of us."

    Plenty of super fresh delicious Nelson at the Brewery. Had a bottle last night, so fresh and tasty.

    Cheers......

    Horseshit. If you're drinking 3 bombers over the course of 6-8hrs you can fully enjoy them. If you're slamming 3in an hour you're on your way to drunkville fast.

    It's still just beer, it's not going to bring you to a tickerection-induced state of nirvana. You're not going to touch God, you're just enjoy some fantastic beer.

    If the best part of your day is what you're pouring down your facehole, I feel sorry for you. Build a better more rewarding life.

    I drink 3 bombers in 2.25 hours. Is that bad?

    That's 1 oz every 1.5 minutes.

    You're just an alcoholic that enjoys really excellent beer.
