Super IPA

IPA

It's back and only on draft: The Alpine Beer Co. and New Belgium have come together for the love of IPAs. This collaboration is hop-wonderful with Amarillo, Columbus, Simcoe and Centennial hops, bringing the bitter all the way to the front. A nice balance Is present with Pale, C-80 and Carapils malts, but the tropical and citrus tones of the American hops dominate. This Super IPA pours a sheened copper and carries a bright, white head. Consider yourself a hero for getting an Alpine beer outside of San Diego.

Find it with the beer finder and catch Super IPA on draft for limited time beginning Dec. 1, 2014.
Visual

Golden sunflower with a slight hop sheen, low foam and even lacing.

Aroma

Hop domination: dark dank pine, fresh cut grass, citrus, herbal, slight hints of fresh sweet bready malt character in the background.

Flavor

Bitter and boozy baby! The malt sweetness tries so hard just to brush against the hop bitterness without countering its cause in this Super IPA!

Mouthfeel/Body

Almost coating from the crazy amount of essential hop oils, warm in the palate and belly from that 9% ABV, firm and enduring bitterness. Medium-Light
