Alpine Pure Hoppiness

Alpine is a small brewery in Alpine, California (near San Diego) that gets a lot of news for their IPAs.  I was lucky enough to be given a bottle of their Pure Hoppiness, an IPA, as an extra in my latest trade.
The aroma was piney along with some slight lemony bitterness.  Initially slightly bitter up front then followed by some hoppy pine notes.  Very dry finish and surprisingly the bitterness doesn't linger at all considering how much of it I found in the aroma and the flavor.  Quite an enjoyable IPA and I found it to be very balanced and pretty tasty.
