4.28/5  rDev -5.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance- Received with almost a finger's worth of head which disappears as I write this. The head is pure cotton white while the body is a pale to medium amber which appears as a golden straw when held up to the light. Light lacing as with Alpine's other beers.

Nose- Have I mentioned that Alpine has hoppy beers on lockdown? Not bitter hophead beers but delicious fruity ones. More fruit notes with citrus notes taking the front (orange, lemon, and grapefruit). Some cherry. Notes of honey and caramel. Floral character. If this follows the aroma this is going to be the type of IIPA that I like.

Taste- Follows the nose to a certain extent. There is definitely a good amount of citrus (orange and lemon) and other fruits- cherry and peach at the moment. Good amount of honey and caramel. However, the best aspect of the flavor profile is one I can't really describe adequately. This is an extremely fresh and bright beer. Some pine and resin but not enough to render this a hophead's beer. The pine and resin does have a bit of linger which also shows some matchstick and grapefruit. Some orange and lemon peel. Caramel meets up with a bit of matchstick and makes it tastes a bit burnt. Some mustiness. Armpit and dirty socks. It is a little too cold to tell but I'm not as impressed with it as others seem to be. Certainly not in the same class as Notorious, Heady Topper, or Pliny the Younger at the moment.

Mouthfeel- Close to medium bodied with a lot of carbonation and zing. It's undeniable- high carbonation seems to be as much of signature to Alpine's top beers as low carbonation is for HOTD's elite beers. Still works. The zing complements the freshness and spice of the high hops.

Drinkability- Very easygoing and each taste varies. Each one might not be the best I've ever had but it keeps it interesting. No heat at all and 5 bucks for a 12 oz pour seems pretty reasonable for a high quality IIPA. Especially considering that Apex charges 5 bucks for a 6 oz pour of Notorious. Notorious is great but not that great.

Overall- Really good beer that wants to be great but just isn't. I've had too many world class IIPAs to think otherwise. Definitely worth a try though.

I'm one of the blessed that lives within a few miles of places like Alpine Brewery, and whenever we hear one of the limited release brews is on tap, we make a beeline, but so far, I'd missed out on Bad Boy. They'd always just blown the keg at lunch, or two hours ago, or right before I got there! But not this time! Bad Boy, Ugly, and Pure Hopiness all available at the same time for MY personal drinking pleasure! So I did...drink...and it was a pleasure!

App-Darker amber, almost brassy color. Not as much head as most Alpine beers, but no complaints. As pretty a picture of a big bold Double IPA as you could ask for.

Smell- The only place it might fall short. The nose doesn't come anywhere NEAR advertising how much flavor there's going to be in this beer. Citrus, C-hoppy smell, with a bit of that grapefruity aroma I've come to connect with New Zealand hops (pac jade, pac gem, Nelson).

Taste- Yeah...THIS is what I want from a big Double IPA. HUGE hoppy flavors just slap you in the face. There's not enough space to list the hop flavors that jump out at you, but pine, citrus, that distinctive 'C-hop' funk, and that pineapple/grapefruit background bite that lingers. Very nicely balanced with sweet maltiness, this is a beer I can drink and drink! One at the brewery, but my growler didn't last long once I got home either. You can feel the alcohol heat, but this brew is so well balanced, that no single aspect overpowers.

Mouthfeel-A solid, malty, substantial mouthful, but that's needed to stand up to the huge flavors of this amazing brew.

Overall- I don't think I could take it if this was available all the time. It's fantastic. Start to finish, it's got everything I want from a big hoppy Imperial. Top 5 Imperial IPA style, and maybe #1!

On tap at the FW invitational. Came out a slightly darker, light brown dark orange pour compared to their many other excellent hoppy beers. Somehow the head and lacing were pretty damn impressive here. Aroma, usual mix of simcoe and amarillo I would suspect, but since its Alpine, it has that extra deliciousness going for it. Enjoyable musty light onion and sweetgrass almost makes me think about sauvin and summit hops.

Big hop flavor, pine resin, herb resin, light fruit, warming alcohol nowhere near as strong as 9% usually tastes. Good bitterness, not grating, but not nonexistant green lushness either. Best of both worlds. Super dry finish and mouthfeel like all of Alpine's hoppy beers.

There's nothing really to set this apart, for better or worse, from Alpine's big lineup of ipas. Which means its awesome just like the rest of them.

On-tap at the Alpine pub. Poured into a pint glass.

A- Pours a bright golden color, topped with an inch of creamy off-white head, great retention, lots of spotty lacing.

S- Very complex hop aroma, lots of dank, earthy hops as well as juicy citrus and pine resin. Nice balance from a sweet malt aroma.

T- Follows the nose with loads of citrus and pine resin, powerfully bitter, also some dank flavors. Bready, chewy malt lends some balancing sweetness, finishes with a leafy bitterness.

M- Medium-bodied, smooth feel with a dry finish.

O- A pretty excellent DIPA, awesome hop flavor, very drinkable, I'd probably put this on par with Pure Hoppiness, this is some great stuff.

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

As with other Alpine beers, this one looks great. I tad murky, but the burnt orange/rusty body is topped with a fluffy, sticky white head.

Strong aroma, mostly grass, pine and resinous. A hint of citrus zest.

yeah, more pine, grass and resin with the flavors. I like it as a contrast with ExpHop, which I thought was more citrus forward. This beer has hops, for sure. Malt? Not for sure. Joking...but the malt gives a very subtle hint of a backbone with some caramel. That's about all for the malt.

Nice bite to it. It digs in. The resinous side leaves a bit of a filmy feel. This kills the snap or zip on the end. Oh well.

On tap for Churchill's Renaissance at Churchill's Pub & Grille in San Marcos, CA.

Pours a clear honey orange with an off-white head that settles to an oily film on top of the beer. No lacing on this one. Smell is of citrus zest, citrus fruit, and honey aromas. Taste is quite exceptional with a very nice balance between citrus zest, citrus fruit, and a honey sweetness. There is a medium amount of bitterness on the palate after each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good IPA with an awesome citrus presence.

On Tap

Alpine Beer Company Pub
Alpine, CA

Clear, light golden yellow in color with a loose, big bubbled, near-white head that leaves ribbons of stick down the glass.

Incredible aroma. I could smell how pungent and bright this beer smelled even as the waitress placed it down in front of me. The aroma is a big, powerful combination of citrus (orange and grapefruit) and big notes of pine forest. This would make for a wonderful air freshener for my car. This stuff smells great!

The flavor is big, bold, and aggressive. The bitterness is fairly high with lots of pine/resin/marijuana flavors. There's some mild citrus present as well, but this is big, dank, and piney. Very nice.

Medium bodied with moderate to high carbonation.

Just fantastic. This isn't as unique or interesting a beer as Nelson, but it's just as good as Pure Hoppiness, and in my opinion, better than Exponential Hoppiness.

1109th Review on BA
Draft to 10oz

@Downtown Johnny Browns

App- A weird looking light medium orange with a smalled one finger head that was a bit off white in color and then falls to reveal great great cling.

Smell- A pine forest in a nose. Grapefruit, orange juice, hop oil and a biting bitter nose rounds out this one.

Taste- For a profile I don't seek out, I would on this one. Opens with a damp deep citrus nose and then moves to a pine tree esque biting bitter flavor. Its damn good and I dont like this profile. Important so I said it TWICE!! Huge flavor and layers of citrus and bitter

Mouth- Medium bodied and medium carbonation with huge residual pine tree, orange zest and dampness. Just a good feel.

Drink- Its really good but for a profile I dont seek out cant go 5. Find it, drink it! This means you E!!!

On tap at Toronado

A: Golden straw color with peach hues. There was a small head that hung around for a second and left some spotty lacing.

S: Dank, dank, dank. Dirty passion fruit, mango, and papaya. There is just a flood of hoppy goodness that completely dominates the malts.

T: More of the same. Loads of dank tropical fruit flavors followed by a crisp dry finish. Sublime.

M: Medium bodied with some palpable viscosity from the hop oils.

O: My favorite DIPA to date. Can we please get some Alpine brews on the east coast!!!!

On tap at O'Brien's for 2011 SDBW. Pint glass.

Pours clear pale golden, with minimal head consisting of a ring of white foam, and no lacing. Smell is juicy grapefruit and orange, some floral in the secondary, with a hefty dose of sweet malt. Taste is similar, dry, also now with some pine. Mild carbonation and medium-full body, not much alcohol presence. Overall, very drinkable, nice light citrus hop flavor with a good amount of malt backbone. Delicious! More malty than some of their other offerings, but overall another winner from Alpine.

On tap at O'briens Pub

A: My Bad Boy arrived a super clear golden light colored pale. Another brim reaching pour that held only just a collar of white foam. Fading out rather quickly but showcasing some nice lingering lace.

S: Smells real fruity with big notes of grapefruit zest and sticky greens. Some sweet sugary malts bring a soft caramel aroma behind all of the fruits.

T: Tastes just plain danky! Piney hops are in your face and resinous. Citrus-Grapefruit flesh and stone fruit notes. Hints of pineapple. Bitterness is subtle at first then intensifies towards the back of the palate and linger ever so nicely. Has an underlying caramel sweetness like sugary crackers. Alcohol presence with a bit of chest warmth but extremely well masked. Very light and dry in the finish for a DIPA. Damn this is really good.

M: Light semi-dry body with a puckering finish. Creamy in texture. Good carbonation. Sticky hop resins coat the mouth.

D: A definite Bad Boy. Probably one of my favorite all-time DIPA’s due to such great balance. Very quaffable.

A real hoppy DIPA and one I would consider some of Alpine's best work. Caramel sugar support but not too sweet. Alcohol warmth but not too boozy. Highly recommended.

Drink Alpine or go to bed! Actually I think after a few of these one would be going to bed.

Decided to make a trip down to Alpine today and was greeted by an amzing tap list.

It pours a translucent copper with a nice 1 finger head of pure white foam. The head falls to a crown and doesn't leave any lacing.

It's really hard to get passed the hops in the aroma, but that's a good thing. The nose is jam packed with delicious, juicy hops. Definite citrus notes as well as some nice malt.

Taste follows the nose. The hops just grab hold of your taste buds and dont let go. Very dry finish with a nice citrus resin left behind.

The absolute perfect mouthfeel. Dry, and relatively light. This beer invites 100 degree weather to the party. Insanely refreshing and you can't notice the 9% ABV at all.

This is a great beer. It takes two glasses before you love it though. Kind of your typical DIPA at first, but after the second pour, you understand why it's rated how it is. Well done Alpine.

A: Clear, honey color with a ring of white foam around the top.

S: Dear God. The smell of this one is amazing. Huge pine hops, mango and a ton of hop resins. Incredible.

T: There's a big, peppery pine hop bite right off the bat and then a little bit of bready malt that evens things out just enough. The finish is huge and bitter, like sucking on a hop cone. There's a hint of tropical fruit sweetness towards the end. This is an absolute must-try.

Poured into a pint glass.

From notes taken at the Alpine Beer Pub.

A - Light amber color with a 0.5 inch head that is white and very dense.

S - Aroma of dank hops. Some pine oils and some nice resin notes. Some lsight sweetness formt eh hops as well. Pretty hop forward. Not as booze heavy as expected with the 9%.

T & M - Dangerously smooth. Nice pine notes with some good dank hops and sticky resin notes. Citrus fills the middle of the beer with a slightly bready balance and then a bitter and dry finish that leaves a nice hoppy mess. Mouthfeel is a bit on the medium side with some sweet notes but mostly a easy drinker. Except for the higher ABV that is well hidden.

O - Its appropriately hop forward but quite smooth at the same time. Can be dangerous because of the ease of drinking. Solid DIPA.

4.9/5  rDev +7.9%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Appearance: Similar to all DIPA. Arrives with dark gold color and a perfect head that sheds a little lace. Apperance is one thing... but how does it smell and taste?

Smell: Tropical fruit and hops so strong you feel a scatchy sensation on the back of your throat. So fresh its oozing though the glass. Last DIPA that this compares to is PtY. Is this dry hopped? Could have fooled me.

Taste: Smooth. Well done hidding the 9+%. Drinking other high ABV DIPAs leaves you with the feeling of breathing fire this brew seems to hide the fact very well. There is no bitterness on the back end, the epitome of a fresh DIPA. No malt favors distorting the back end flavor. A dance in your mouth of hops and tropical flavors.

Mouthfeel: Why not just finish the whole growler? Drinkability is so easy that one could.

Overall: A perfect DIPA IMO. I will put it side by side with Hopfather and PtY. Drink up while its fresh. Shawn knocked this one out of the park.

Serving type: on-tap at Alpine and a two growlers to go. In addition I had a Pure Hop on cask with dry hops added... very tasty.

Taste: The tropical fruit flavors provide an enticing balance of sweet and citrusy bitterness from start to finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with crisp carbonation

Overall: Here is a DIPA that balances the malt and hops perfectly in a complement that never gets cloying, limits the assault on the tongue and benefits from a great mouthfeel; one of the best examples of the west coast DIPA style I have encountered

From tap to tulip glass

Reviewed from notes from San Diego Beer Week

Pours a clear yellow orange, little carbonation, little head. Looks oily.

Smells of strong pine, some tropical notes, alcohol. Did I say pine?

It tastes of bitter, piny hops up front, probably the most bitter of Alpine's line-up. Turns to sweet, caramelly malts with a tropical nuance, suggesting mango-papaya. Spicy alcohol burn. Finishes amazingly balanced and clean.

It feels big and creamy on the palate, not sticky. Plenty of deceptive carbonation that wasn't seen in the pour.

I could drink this all day. Alpine makes some of the best IPA's out there, this is yet another.

Update 9/15/11: Just got a growler of the latest batch...did a line up of Bad Boy against Kern River Citra and PtE, my three favorite DIPA's. Alpine seems to have perfected this beer - it was the best of the three.

Poured amber brown with yellow highlights that had a thin head and left a little bit of lacing sticking to the glass. The aroma was pretty damn piney with floral hops, citrus, slight mango, and a good sweet malty presence. Upfron the piney hop notes stand out nice on the palate alongside citrus grapefruit that help out on the overall bitter bite but also had mango accents and a great malty backbone to balance out the piney potentcy. The brew was medium body with a fair amount of carbonation which had a piney hoppy bitter crisp finish. It drank really good and I felt like it was expo's baby brother.

Had on-tap at the brewery during my visit to SD. Thanks to Pat for the pour and personal tour, what a nice guy! Reviewed from notes 08/15/09.

A - Pours a very clear golden/orange with a white head. Some good lacing and bubbles remain on top as the cap.

S - Huge hoppy aroma with some citrus and floral notes in there as well. Really, this one was a huge hop bomb that blew out my sense of smell. Bad Boy is right.

T - Hops, bitter, hops, bitter, touch of malt, hops, bitter, bitter. Repeat over and over until you have finished your pour. Pretty much zero malt character, which I like.

M - Light to medium, good carbonation, crisp and smooth.

D - Another great one from Alpine. I think they're the kings of DIPA and IPA. This is yet another great example of what Pat and company are doing in sunny CA.

On tap at the brewery in August 2009.

Pours a nice, bright gold with a little bit of lacing as it goes down. The aroma is absolutely wonderful, with loads of citrus notes and a bit of pine. The malt is in the background--more so than with Exponential or Pure Hoppiness--but only adds a little bit of balance, which is quite appropriate. The taste is much the same, with a really nice bitterness coming through. Medium-bodied and insanely drinkable given the alcohol. Another big hit from Alpine.

On tap at Alpine, I was excited to get a good sample of this beer. It was yellow in color, little head. The smell was kind of brutal hops. The flavor made me open my eyes a little wider between the extreme hoppiness, pungent aroma, and obviously high alcohol content of the beer. This was good and I wish I'd been able to drink a growler of this but you can't do everything especially when there is Duet waiting to be drank.

On tap at O'Briens.... also on cask, but I thought the tap version was much better, so that is what I'm reviewing.

A- light golden with thin light cap. Great clarity.

S- Hops definitely jump out. More of an earthy hop flavor than most beers which focus on a citrus or pine.

T- Earthy hops, lots of it. Finishes really dry so there's not a whole lot of sweetness of any kind that I can detect here. Showcases the hops really nicely.

M- For a fairly big beer they make this feel almost like a IPA, which gets major props. Nice and dry. No syrupy action going on here at all.
___

Had on tap at O'Brien's again 2/18/10. Even more impressed with it this time. Got more of a citrusy rind bitterness out of it, not really tropical or anything but like citrus rind oils. Very bitter and very dry.
Increased appearance, smell, and taste to 4.5 from 4.0.
