Notes/Commercial Description:
This Hop Monster uses multiple kettle hop additions with the technique of doubling the hop amount each addition (exponentially). Add in the hop back and the continuous dry hopping and your starting to get the picture. The beer is finished off with a "body-bag" sized hop-bag full of hop cones and oak chips. There it ages and mellows, disguising the alcohol content for a double strong, incredibly hoppy, yet drinkable beer.

4.8/5  rDev +8.1%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Got a bottle of this as a very nice extra from jakekohut.

A- Dark amber. 1 finger of head that dissolves into a thin layer of bubbles. Thin lacing.

S- REALLY nice smell. Very citrusy hops. Grapefruit and pineapple. Some oak. Flowery. Very deep, full smell. I love the smell.

T- Very slight pine hops. A deep grassy taste is the most evident. Caramel. The flowery smell is not as evident in the taste. Lots of malts. But a little bit of pineapple comes through. This one is tough to pinpoint specific tastes because it seems that with each sip, I get something new. The oak is evident. Its a warm and really beautiful taste. I just looked at the bottle, and this is 11%?? Its hidden very well.

M- full bodies and warm. But not an alcohol warmth as much as a really nice drink warmth. Really nice.

D- At 11%, its almost lucky that I only have 1 bottle of this. Very drinkable and well hidden alcohol. I'd be stumbling before too long because I can't help but take big sips of this great beer. One of my favourite IPAs to date.

Thanks again to jakekohut. I loved this.

Poured a golden orange with yellow highlights that had a half finger of head and left good blotchy lacing sticking to the glass. The aromas was super piney and the floral hops really making a statemen. It had lots of citrus and grapefruit notes alongside oaky notes and a malt presence; very nice potent nose. Like the aroma the flavor was super piney with floral hops and citrus grapefruit that really help propel the overall bitterness but still had oaky, slight pineapple, and grass earthy accents. Well still being a huge hop bomb it also had a good malt backbone which balanced out the big hop punchiness. The brew was medium body with a good amount of bubbly carbonation that had a piney hop citric crsip and bitter finish. Regardless of all the hop mayhem it still drank wonderfull and is a great example of a west coast hop bomb. If your a hop head this is sure to punch you palate nice. Great job alpine.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Poured into a snifter from a 22oz bottle. A self described triple IPA.

A - Pours a strong golden color with some light orange hues and a slight haze. There is a nice .5 inch head that pops up that is pretty dense and nice and white. It begins to recede immediately and leaves some ncie alcing as it goes down that is quite sticky. the head recedes and leaves a nice sticky ring around the glass.

S - Strong sweet grapefruit aroma with great citrus kick. This smells like a hop-bomb. Nice malt backbone is faint but there. Some slight pine but mostly a West Coast citric DIPA. Slight booze esters and warmth. There are some nice sweet fruity esters as well that include pineapple and some apple.

T - Wow. It is a hop-bomb and a booze bombe at that, which isn't a bad thing. Very sweet start composed of nice grapefruit and orange sweetness. Alcoholic sweetness and warmth is also present along with the fruit esters. After the hop explosion of flavor in your mouth there are some glimmers of bready malt present especially on the back end. These get quickly supplemented by some more citrus flavors and dryness. topped off by a nice oily and bitter finish.

M & D - Oily and medium-full body. Complex aromas and flavor with great alcoholic spice and warmth. Drinkability is kept in check by the ABV and the flavor intensity. Delicious brew.

look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

22 oz. bottle (courtesy of a trade with stawn, a generous trader) poured into a Duvel snifter. Pour revealed a hazy orange-gold with a small off-white head which settled to a coating. Lacing was intense and lasted. Nose was intense grapefruit but in the background are some sweet malts (caramel) and some piney hops. Taste is first strong citrus (especially grapefruit), some slick pine, and then the sweetness of the malts - some bready, some caramel. This is is a hop bomb for sure, but incredibly well-balanced. The aftertaste is not mouth puckering bitterness, but a nice bitter edge to a sweet and fruity finish. Mouthfeel is creamy and medium with light carbonation. And warning - there is NO sense of anything CLOSE to 10.5% ABV. All-in-all, this is a world class beer. Even with my very high expectations, there was no disappointment. My wife, who doesn't like IPA's liked this. Great beer everyone should get to try. Now if Alpine would only get greedy and start pumping it out in the quantity that would allow it.

Dark golden color with a finger of head.

Smells of loads of pine, hints of vanilla, orange blossoms and a bit doughy.

Tastes of pine, orange, tobacco, a touch of grapefruit, and woody oak. Sweet honey malts as well. Oak and pine are quite dominating. Altogether interesting taste.

Mouthfeel is pretty thick, fairly well carbonated, and very crisp/dry.

A solid drink IIPA with almost no trace of alcohol.

Sampled on tap at Toronado. I had tried this last year and I wasn't a big fan. So I had to give it a second chance.

A - Golden with a slight haze and a small white head.

S - Bursting with tropical fruit and citrusy hops that hit you with every sip. There was much more than I had noted last time.

T - Tropical fruit, citrus and a light bitterness. The alcohol is apparent but not enough to let you know it's 10.5%. There's much more balance between the hops and alcohol than my previous experience had indicated. Maybe this batch is fresher.

M - Oily and silky with a low carbonation.

D - I'm really glad I gave this one another try. It's still a bit strong for me but it's a flavorful, rich, complex beer that is very well done.

I love casual Fridays. An opportunity to update the tasting list with notes from the past. Today's come from the Double IPA festival in 2006.

A much lighter than expected appearance, a hazy, yet somewhat vibrant yellow. A very sweet, citrus and pine aroma. I mean, I don't think I've smelled something so sugary AND hoppy. Quite nice and unique. We're talking like tropical citrus up in this.

Taste, a big beer, big on the hops, a little lower on the bitterness, alcohol is there, but far from overwhelming. Mouthfeel alternates between sticky and then gets dry thankfully. Nice. Would love to try and get a hold of this stuff in the bottle. One of the best breweries with very little distribution.

22oz bomber into a pint glass

A: Pours a very hazy orange/yellow with a big white head that fades leaving lacing all over the glass.

S: The nose is excellent and full of tropical fruit aromas in the form of pineapple and mango. Damn this smells great.

T: The taste starts with pine, pineapple, and mango with a nice bitterness on the finish. There's a lot of sweet malt flavors in the background that add a nice base for the hop flavors.

M: The feel is creamy and medium - full bodied with an oily/resinous finish.

D: This is insanely drinkable for a 10% DIPA. Crisp and refreshing with tons of tropical fruit flavors which is just how I like 'em. I'd be drinking this all the time if it was available in my area.

I had this in my fridge for at least 3 months and it didn't seem to lose much in the way of hop flavor or aroma. Great DIPA.

From notes.
Large capped bottle, thanks to a kind BA at DLD.

Poured into aampling glass, golden in color, with a nice off white head that shows average retention.
Aroma is a hint of things to come, with a very strong malty backbone, more sweetness than hoppiness present. Citric fruits, but not a lot else round up the aroma.
Nearly full bodied, it shows heavy doses of malts and hops, with a lot of citric fruits, and a lot of caramel sweetness, but again, not a lot else.
This one, in my opinion, comes to prove yet again that just pouring large amounts of hops and malts does not make a great beer.

Had this one courtesy of brdc and with stoutsnipas, great gang and great beer, much thanks to both.

This beer pours a nice golden-amber color forming an almost 1/2 inch off-white head. Minimal lacing is left behind. It is somewhat translucent with noticeable carbonation.

The aroma is quite sweet with fruity and citrus notes up front and center. This is well balanced with a caramel malt sweetness.

The taste follows suit with a great blend of caramel malts with a strong punch of citrusy hops that includes some earthy notes. Alcohol is present but nicely covered by the flavors.

The mouthfeel is medium/full bodied with a thick and sticky feel to it. The carbonation seemed a bit low. There is a pleasant lingering alcohol and hops dryness.

Overall, this is a very good beer. It has all the fundamental categories and highlights a few strengths that bring it to this level. Well balanced and something that should be enjoyed in moderation, as it will impair your palate and thinking if had in excess.

22oz bottle split with a friend

A - dark amber in color with a nice creamy, light khaki colored head. some sticky lacing left behind.

S - very fruity and citrusy hops...candied oranges and pineapple, massive amount of rich sweet caramel and bready malt.

T - though the hops may have faded a bit this is still in that nice heavily-balanced DIPA area...reminiscent of East Coast DIPA's. citrusy and slightly piney hops backed by a strong caramel and fruity base. reminds me of a hop-heavy 90minute with more alcohol.

M - thick bodied and incredibly creamy. carbonation is light but playful. finishes with lingering pine and alcohol burn.

D - dangerously drinkable for the ABV. a great balanced DIPA that is hoppy enough to hold up over some time and please hop-heads.

A: Amber/orange in color; topped with a rocky, thick, foamy, mother of pearl colored head. Excellent lacing down the glass.

S: Big tropical fruit on the nose with some sweet candy qualities happening as well. Backed up with a little caramel.

T: Like a double version of Sculpin sort of. Mango and other tropical citrus before grapefruit. sweetness shows but it seems to come from fruity esters rather then sweet malty qualities which is a nice change for the style. carbonation helps keep it from being cloying as well.

M: thick but well carbonated.

D: high for the abv

A: Poured from a bottle to a tulip glass. had an deep orange color and a thick, cloudy consistency. There was a half inch of foamy, long-lasting head and excellent lacing.

S: A big, bold aroma of hops, citrus, malt, and pine. Very sharp, very sweet.

T: Tasted of hops first and foremost, pine, grapefruit, caramel malt, and a woody quality mixed in. An extremely complex, fruity, hoppy beer. ABV% does pack something of a punch.

M: Lots of carbonation with a thick, oily finish. Medium-bodied.

D: Wow. A massive, likable, well made, drinkable beer.

Bottle shared by Bobby8405. Word up Bob.

A - It first pours like flat orange cask ale, then it slowly develops a voluminous head and great lace, like a nitro-brew. Strange.

S - Quite grapefruit hoppy, and the malt has a grapefruit-rye pungency that is fairly dominant. Not the best aromatics.

T - The flavor is very much reminiscent of fresh American Barleywine. The hop is there, but so is huge malt and booze. The flavor is messy, to me. Grapefruit, raisins, licorice, flat-out maltiness, just a bunch of trainwrecking dynamics. I am not sure why I have such a differing viewpoint as to the quality of this brew, but I just don't see anything above mediocre in it.

M - Hot and sticky. A loser.

D - This is like the malt liquor of DIPA. Not recommended.

Poured from a 22oz bomber into a Loterbol tulip. Extra special thanks to errantnight for this from our most recent trade!

A: Pours relatively clear and well carbonated, deep/rich gold color with 1 3/4 fingers of sticky, pillowy, off-white foam. Retention was excellent as was the lace. Sheets and rings lined the inside of the glass.

S: Hops. Big time. Initial aroma was full of grapefruit, pine, tangerine, apricot, and a bit of mango. As it warms an impressive caramel malt aroma comes out to lay down a pleasantly sweet malt blanket over the hops.

T: Exactly as above. I was wowed by the the level of hoppiness and extremely impressed by the malty backbone layed down throughout this. Alcohol is there, barely.

M: Thick and oily. Very sticky. Resinous hops cling to everything as does the huge malt bill. Finishes with a touch of dry spiciness. Either from the alcohol or the oak they brew this with. Probably both.

D: I was stunned to read on the label that this was packing 11%. Yes, it's big and outrageous, but the alcohol is not the alpha here. Huge hops and malt rule the roost!

Had this one in the fridge for a few weeks as I received it as an extra in a trade (yeah, that's right, an extra). Review is from notes taken on 5/1/2010 and poured from the bottle to a pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a golden and light coppery color and starts with a one finger white head that fades rather quickly to an uneven, but full, skim; the body is just a little hazy and shows strong carbonation bubbling throughout and sticking to the sides of the glass; a fair web and washes of lacing hold on as well.

Smell: Wonderfully hoppy (tons of citrus, like juicy orange [that's even a little sweet, not just bitter - likely complemented by the malt backing] and a more bitter aspect like grapefruit); definite balancing agent of sweet honey-like maltiness and a very faint whiff of alcohol.

Taste: Awesome! Just like the smell -- tons of wonderfully citric hops (lots juicy and sweet orange and that bitter grapefruit) and that great balance of honey sweet malts; a fair presence of alcohol in the taste as well, but at 11%, it's pretty understandable; a bit of a toasty grainy bit in the aftertaste as it begins to warm.

Mouthfeel: Tons and tons of thick stickiness left all over the mouth; body is moderately thick and a little syrupy; carbonation may be strong in the view, but it comes through creamy and lively in the mouth due to the thicker body; definite drying effect from the alcohol and the belly is left a little warm.

Drinkability: Typically, I would say anything with an ABV this high would be more moderate, also considering the heavier weight of this one. But frankly, with flavors like this, I really don't care. It may be a sipper to be sure, but it's definitely a thirst quencher and a great beer on a warm night. I had no problem polishing off all 22 ounces and would gladly take another (not on the same night, mind you). I want to enjoy this beer as much as possible!

Thanks Ryan!

Bomber split two ways - hazy pour....lighter than I expected.

Very floral and resinous. Thick and sweet, with more tropical fruit than citrus - papaya and banana? The smell of this beer exceeds the taste. While inviting on the nose, this beer doesn't hide the alcohol well. Sweetness becomes, not surprisingly, more pronounced as it warms. Scared this could become a diesel banana bomb. Finish is quite woody, like licking an oak plank.

Mouthfeel is a bit sticky and medium bodied, a bit sluggish and low on the carbonation.

Drinkability is low, a sipper

Thanks to billab914 for this beer.

Bottle split into two pint glasses. Poured into my glass the beer is cloudy golden amber. Full three fingers of off white head recede slowly to leave thick chunks of lace.

The aroma is a solid amount of hops and citrus. The citrus fruit is a touch sweeter than I had expected along with a decent amount of malt backbone.

The flavor is a nice mix of pine and grapefruit. This is balanced very well with a good amount of malt. Lots of fresh cut grass and a hint of earthiness. The ABV is well represented with a good heat kick.

Medium body. Fairly dry. Modest carbonation.

Overall a nice DIPA. Not as in your face as I expected after reading the lable but worthy.

Had this out of the bottle.

This poured a clear light brown with a hint of straw yellow.
It smelled of caramel, toffee, vanilla and creamy butterscotch. I did not get any of the hop aroma.

It tasted of candied malts, toffee, vanilla then it turned to a good grass, grapefruit and piney bitterness.

Good carbonation, good drinkability.

I prefered this one to the Apocalypse Cow, but only slightly. They were both really good, but I enjopyed the transition in flavor in the Exponential Hoppiness.

22 oz bottle split and poured into a Sierra Nevada imperial pint. 11% ABV, no date.

Thanks to Beerwolf77 for bringing this bottle over!

A - EH=PH2 pours a hazed-over golden orange color with a plump bone head with moderate retention and a one big ring of lace. Not very attractive however.

S - With the description I heard read from Todd, I expected more hops than this. Especially with the dry-hopped amount. A bold earthy herbal nose backed by a squeeze of lemony citrus and a kiss of pine needle. A caramel chunk and malt backing with mild fruitiness appears in the far back.

T - Well, at least it's a major hop punch in the flavor despite the lack of it in the aroma. Tons of resin overtakes the floral, citrus, and pine notes. It tastes like walking into a Michael's store. A bit boozy too. A heavy finish of solvent alcohol.

M - Medium-full bodied and malty with a dry and fairly bitter finish but not enough IBUs for their heavy hopped claims methinks. The carbonation is a bit low too.

D - Pretty hoppy but not triple IPA hoppy. I think the booze is a bit high but it's not bad. The blend overall just seems a bit low on the hop scale for their description but without a bottle date its hard to know if it's that way or due to age.

A - Hazy and a bit darker than I was expecting from an IPA. Decently sized head with some nice lacing.

S - Smells like a malty IPA, not nearly the hop profile or strength of aroma I was expecting. A bit sweet, with pine and citrus notes.

T - Malty and hoppy. The citrus is grapefruity but it fades into some nice pine notes. Nice alcohol burn, I dig it in these types of beers. Very malty backbone, not overly sweet, but present.

M - Heavier IPA, very creamy.

D - I'd like it a little less malty and lighter to improve the drinkability, but it's a pretty easy drinker, especially for the ABV.

Serving type- 22 ounce bomber poured into a snifter.

This beer pours a nice hazt orange color with a one finger white head that quickly disipates into a nice small white lace. I am picking up strong alcohol notes in the smell; this seems to overpower any and all other possible smell flavors. The taste of this beer is rather tame for an Imperial IPA. I can see this tasting more like an IPA, which due to its ABV might end up bitting you in the ass. Overall a good tasting DIPA that masks its strength rather well.
I recieved this beer as part of my Secret Santa package and I am happy to have finally tried it.

Received in trade from TexIndy, thanks for the opportunity!

Pours a slightly hazy deep orange amber color with a small fluffy white head that slowly dissipates to a cap. Smells of grapefruit and slight pineapple with more caramel and toffee than I expected. Taste is much the same as the aroma. Juicy grapefruit mixed with caramel and toffee or butterscotch. Taste is smooth as hell. Medium body with a lingering almost sweet finish. Light to medium level of carbonation, resinous mouthfeel. I really enjoyed this one. I had this right after it came out as well, and the hops are fading quickly. Great beer, especially fresh.

Pour reveals a hazy deep gold body with appealingly thick off-white head and nice lacing. This is a very pretty beer. Serious hop on the nose, with all the pine sappy floral-y honey-y fresh notes to it. There's something rich in the background like the faint kick of durian, but that's all the better in my book. A little meatiness is there as well, possibly from the aging.

Very mellow and well-balanced flavor for all the smells of it. The faint meatiness really comes through in the taste along with a resiny pine sap flavor. Fresh grapefruit-type citrus and honey are the finishing flavors. The aging really adds a lot of dimension to this otherwise very hopped beer. Mouthfeel is smooth and slightly dry from bitterness with a small and filling but light carbonation. Drinkability is great for so flavorful an IPA. Slightly chilled, this bomber could be mine easily.

Overall I am very glad to have tried this. It's definitely a little different and definitely top-notch.

Poured into a Foothills signature glass. Nice, clear, caramel-gold color with a finger of sudsy white head. Sticky lacing left on the glass.

Lots of piney, citrusy hops on the nose. Grainy maltiness mixes with some subtle wood notes. Bits of grapefruit.

Smooth, rich caramel malts mixed with sustained hop bitterness in the taste. Hops bring out a pine like character that goes well with the oak chips. Hints of citrus dance around the hoppy bitterness. A good amount of malt, but the hops still take center stage. The oak chips are what kicks the deliciousness of the flavor up a notch.

Body is smooth and malty with lots of bitterness throughout. Carbonation is light and almost washed out by the bitterness piercing your tongue. This feels like a big IPA, which it is, but the ABV is incredibly well masked.

For a triple IPA that weighs in at almost 11% ABV, this beast is pretty damn drinkable. I get the feeling that a bomber could disappear before you knew it. However, you've really got to like your hops to want to keep drinking this one.

Overall, this is my first Alpine beer and probably a pretty good place to start. Huge hop flavor and a smooth body. Plus the oak chips really add a nice level of complexity to the beer. I wish I had a few more in the fridge. I will definitely be seeking out more Alpine beers in the future and I highly recommend this one. A hopheads delight.
