Alpine Windows Up

Val and I went to one of my favorite places, The Pour House in Pennsylvania for dinner. Every time we go out there, we stop at World Market. It’s one of the few retailers that I enjoy going to. It’s not overly crowded and they have a lot of unique things, like lavender candies that remind me of fabric softener (which is something I like, Val thinks it’s weird).

ABV: 7%

Style: American IPA

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Windows Up is a single IPA made with Mosaic and Citra hops. It pours a hazy straw color and is topped with bright white beer foam. Piney aromas mingle with fruity notes, while hints of citrus fruit and an overall lingering resinous quality lend a touch of complexity to this dank IPA.”

Random: This beer comes in at 41 IBUs.

The beer poured with a half a finger of white head that dissipated quickly and left some lacing on the glass. The body was clear and orange in color with lots of carbonation. The nose was filled with grass and vegetal notes of green peppers and green onions. The taste was equally vegetal with grass clippings, pine cleaner and light lemon notes. Green peppers and onions were there as well. The body was on the lighter side with high carbonation. The booze was well-hidden. It had a lengthy finish with pine cleaner. This wasn’t the best beer that I’ve had from Alpine, but I had no problems drinking it. That being said, there are better examples of the style out there.

Untappd Rating: 3.5/5.0
