Alpine Pure Hoppiness

Type: ale
Origin: Alpine, California
Price: $4.99 per 22 oz. $4 at Tornados

A West Coast IPA that I had the privilege to drink on Cask at Tornados for $4. Needless to say I got there early to try this for the first time on cask. This beer is usually 8% alcohol, but on cask it increased to approximately 9%. The name says it all really, basically super hoppy, but it does have a surprising after taste similar to a lager. The beer has a gold hue, is slightly citrus, and a touch of sweet. It really reminded me of Ballast Points Fathom IPL, which is a great compliment.
