Availability: Rotating

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.

On tap at the honey hole itself - Alpine Beer Company, Alpine, CA.

You know that scene in "Office Space" where that one dude is asked what he would do if he had a million dollars and he replied, "two girls at the same time"? Yeah... Exponential Hoppiness is that - Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio at Raul's house, in Raul's spa - perfection. This thing is just lush, creamy, juicy perfection.
