In this beer blog, we are going get into the first beer on this blog from Alpine Beer Company. This is the first beer that I have ever had in my lifetime from Alpine. It is their Pure Hoppiness Double IPA. Alpine Beer Company was founded in the the city that it is named after. It started in Alpine Creek Shopping Center in 1999 in the State of California. They are just like most craft breweries from California. They are known for their IPA’s.
It has a cloudy dark golden color. It is almost copper like color. There is no head on this Double IPA. The aroma has a heavy citrus notes. The taste of this full body beer has a heavy citrus with a bitter hop aftertaste. It is a sipping beer.
Here is a description from their website (alpinebeerco.wordpress.com):
A West Coast Double IPA So mega-hopped it will take you to hop heaven. We’ve used hops in the boil, more hops in the giant hopback, and added to that, an incredible amount of dry-hopping for that cutting-edge “hop bite.” Once you’ve tasted this unique beer, all others pale in comparison. 1.072 OG Classified IBU 8%ABV
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
Closing, I never had any of their beers but I heard so many good things about this California craft brewery. I was pretty excited to see this beer pop up in one of liquor stores that I visit. I was stun to see the price. I try not to judge a beer by the price. It has a nice citrus notes and balance beer. I love it but for the price. I am sorry. I cannot see the price. I can get the same beer from the Midwest or out East for a cheaper price. I recommend you trying it at least once. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
