Slight one finger off white head briefly rests atop a golden honey color that is clear as a bell.
Lacing is relatively slight in the Hill Farmstead Belgian stemware.
The nose is exceptionally bright and juicy, super juicy.Exploding with pineapple,mango and nectarine.
The taste is the payoff and a solid reflection of the amazing aroma: juicy tropical all the way.
Impossible to think Bad Boy is 9% abv as this is easily the most flavorful IIPA above 8% that reveals absolutely no alcohol, which is astounding. There is a slight warming in the throat after a full glass, but just an observation, not a negative.
Mouthfeel is light medium with a wonderful glide across the palate delivering just the right amount of carbonation, with a super crisp, dry finish.
Some IIPAs that have super high ratings are often overhyped: not the case with Bad Boy.
Alpine has created a masterpiece, and Bad Boy is easily one of the very best IIPAs I have been fortunate enough to sample.Huge thanks to SDPaul on this one!

Now that Raul has just woken up from his coma... Like pulling out of a perfect double overhead barrel, this dang sucker is all West Coast. Like Amber Heard's bleached locks, this is a sunburst of ecstasy. Feeling it? Hells to the yeah, Raul is feeling it. Cleaner than your mama while at prom, this my friends, is Mecca.
