look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 64 oz. growler into a tulip. Thanks to Milohop for sending out this growler!

Appearance: My growler pour is a fairly transparent light copper color with a light eggshell head. Eventually fading to a collar, there is a bit of lace down the glass.

Smell: Some light sweetness to go along with a lightly toasted biscuity graininess. Some bubblegum and honey as well. The hops are blended quite well. Grapefruit, sticky pine, and some herbal notes provide the hoppy goodness.

Taste: The flavor starts with a honey biscuity malt sweetness, with a little bit of spice and bubblegum yeast in the middle, which adds a Belgian quality. The hops have pineapple, grapefruit, spicy pine, and a little herbal character.

Mouthfeel: This has a fuller than medium body, starting sweet and staying juicy through each sip. A creamy mouthfeel that has a prickly pine nature and is lightly grainy as well. A little bit of booze adds character and depth.

Overall: As part of the growler side by side tasting we had, this absolutely killed our other offerings. I would definitely go back to this. Every time I have something from Alpine, I regret that I do not live there. Like in the fermenters.

Poured from growler into a Half Acre tulip. Thanks evilc for the hook up!

A- pours a bright dark, golden color with a 2" off-white head. Strands and waves of lacing stick to the glass.

S- huge citrus aromas, grapefruit, oranges, and pineapple. Sweet caramel some spicy, pine.

T- Semi-sweet caramel with citrus. The citrus does not stand out as much as it does in the nose. Bitter grapefruit and orange with some citrus rind and pine bitterness.

M- medium body and carbonation. Has a slight dryness at the finish.

O- very good dipa. If this beer had more citrus flavor like the nose, and a little oily/syrupy mouthfeel it would be near perfect.

Recently got in a trade. Thanks Jimmy!

Pours a very clear gold with a two finger foamy head.

Heavy tropical fruit, grapefruit and some pine in the nose. Your standard west coast IPA.

Light citrus flavor hits the tongue first then rolls straight into a piney bitterness that lingers on the tongue finishing crisp and dry. Hop forward beer.

Mouthfeel is light with good carbonation levels even from a growler.

Another very good beer from Alpine, but I prefer Hoppy Birthday and maybe Duet to this.

Growler courtesy of coonanan.

A: Crystal clear pale, orange-copper body. Inch, inch and a half of creamy white foam sits on top after the initial pour. Spotty lacing is left down the sides of the glass.

S: Assertive mix of citric and pine notes. Tangerine, orange and a little bit of grapefruit.

T: Like the nose this is an assertive blast of fresh citric notes and resinous pine. The hops come through more so in terms of flavor than overwhelming bitterness. Another stellar flavor profile from Alpine IPA/dIPA.

M: Medium bodied with lively, but appropriate, carbonation. Crisp, refreshing finish. Incredibly easy to drink given the 9% ABV.

O: Cracked this open in the parking lot of Capones before the Hill Farmstead event. It easily outshined Ephraim, Amarillo, and Abner... and also beat out the can of Heady Topper that was opened before the event as well. Alpine does it again.

Shared at Jackie O's by some fellow BA's. Thanks to brew3crew for bringing this growler to spread around.

Nice clarity, bright yellow with a white head.

Smelled wonderful. Very light, fresh, and inviting. Lots of crisp wet pine, with some grapefuit adding a fruity sweetness that really helped this beer pop.

Taste was also refreshingly crisp. Pine resin and crackery malt.

Fairly light bodied for a DIPA, good even carbonation. Overall an easy drinker and a beer I'd happily drink again.

On tap at Toronado SD.

A - Poured a nice golden color, with 1 finger of white head. Dissipated moderately fast, but left beautiful lacing.

S - Caramel, citrus and bittering hops.

T - Caramel, Perhaps some rye?, grapefruity hops, citrus and bittering hops.

M - Full-bodied, slightly hop dominated and lightly bitter. Really good.

D - Very good beer. A little too full-bodied to sit and sip on. Definitely should be in the top 100.

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.

This beer pours a golden yellow color with a thick, fluffy, off white head, with a slight yellow tint to it. The head fades so very slowly, leaving a thick coating of lace.

This beer has a massive hop aroma. I smell sweet piney hops mostly. Lots of grassy aroma also. It is quite citrusy also. I am really enjoying the aroma of this one.

The flavor is not a let down either. It is very aggressive. Loads of piney hops, and a massive grassy flavor. It has a slight grapefruity citrus flavor as well. The 9% ABV is well hidden in the flavor.

This beer is very full bodied. It is quite aggressive. It leaves a piney aftertaste. It is carbonated well for the style.

Although this beer is a high ABV, and it is quite aggressive, I think personally, this beer could be a good session beer. It tastes great.

Overall: Get this beer if you can. You wont be sorry. WOW.

From 64oz Alpine growler to Portsmouth glass on 3/10/12
*From notes

-- Many thanks, Bill --

A: Clean and clear 24k gold. A carefule pour yields a .75 finger head. As it fades, a healthy white collar rims the glass.

S: Phenomenal. Juicy to the max, the fruit here is out of bounds.

T: Bitter melon, pink grapefruit and juicy hops dominate from the get-go. It's not overly bitter mind you, merely a perfect balance of hop oil and on the finish, a touch of golden malt. God damn this is good.

M: From a growler shipped from the opposite end of the country, this has held up incredibly well. The density keeps the massive flavors in check, and carries the beer to greater heights then you'd expect for a Double IPA.

O: Reach high and grab that bottle of Bad Boy off the top shelf. Seriously - this is pretty incredible and maddeningly drinkable. My hats off to another Alpine winner, a brewery I hold close to my heart.

Epically recommended.

Big thanks to Robert Zimmerman for breaking this 'bad boy' out. Har har...

Appearance -- Pours a semi-hazed tumeric yellow with a slim sudsy white head. Very unique coloring. Photogenic for sure.

Smell -- Tropical fruit bomb, particularly papaya and pineapple. Caramel malt as well, along with a dab of underlying resinous bitterness. Hop aromas are just beautiful.

Taste -- Bright citrus and tropical fruits in abundance: papaya, mango, sticky ripe pineapple. A slight green onion flavor is also present, but not much of a distraction. Gently sweet caramel base, but a solid baseline hop bitterness keeps this in check. Dry finish.

Mouthfeel -- Smooth, medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. Slightly boozy.

Overall -- Amazing DIPA! This takes tropical fruit bomb to a new level. Really exceptional, even topping Exponential Hoppiness. If I lived in the area of the brewery I'd drink this any time I could find it on tap.

Another nice one from Alpine, these guys seem to know something about hops. Thanks to Matt (starrdogg) for sharing this one last night.

At first I didnt know if I loved this compared to other offerings from Alpine, but the more I had to more I liked it. At first the hops seemed unbalanced but I think once you get pas the first sip it seems to make more sense and taste delicious.

A: The beer pours a super hazy opaque orange with some lacing left and a small ring of fluffy head. Looks kind of like some homebrews I've had, usually like a little brighter orange and less cloudy with more head, but still looks good.

S: Very raw spicy hop aromas, reminds me of opening those air tight bags of hops that homebrewers use. Super dank, kitchen spice, vegetable hop aromas, grass, and even more herbal hops. Not much malt but I dont care.

T: Not super balanced, very much in the direction of hops with little malt to speak of, and at first I was a little put off but then started to really love the hop bite. Raw luscious grass and citrus hop. I can't even really say theres much malt character, its mostly just a bit of sweetness.

M: Bitter back, sweet up front, not super thick but oily over the palate.

Overall another nice beer, but not my favorite from them, which isn't saying much cause most of the time I give their beers A+. Another hop heads dreamy beer!

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.

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.

Growler shared by Ehammond1 thanks bud

Look: Pours a nice shade of yellow with some orangish hues. Only a 1/8 inch on the pour but that was probably my fault for pouring it too slowly there is some spotty lacing left on the glass

Smell: Very powerful nose and for me the clear cut winner of this beer. Very bright crisp and clean citrus notes with some piney hops hiding in the background

Taste: Very similar to the nose but just not as bright and crisp still a damn fine tasting beer

Mouthfeel: A touch thinner than medium body with not quite medium carbonation

Overall: Just another damn fine IPA from Alpine

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.

Hour old growler pours tangerine and gold into the glass. Neat one inch high head of white froth with good retention. Average lacing, spotty for an IPA.

Pungent and floral. Room filling aroma, rich with tropical fruit, deep citrus tones, and an oily and resinous undertone. Absolutely fabulous, ready to dive right in.

Honey and bready malt quickly give way to intense hop oils and a resinous hop flavor that is pure and flows over the palate with a sneaky and lasting bitterness. Quite a transition from the nose. Alcohol well hidden.

Smooth, but quite a thick and viscous body. Carbonation is adequate. Shot through almost the entire glass in no time.

It's like Alpine took Ballast Point Sculpin and Stone's Ruination, shotgun married 'em and then stole the couple's first born child, put him on steroids and raised a Bad Boy indeed. Perfect aroma, well hidden ABV, thick and resinous hop profile. Well crafted offering from Alpine, a must try for any hop head.

Drove to alpine a week ago to Drink some of their new beers and get some growlers. This one I had to get a growler of.

Pours a golden clear color with a thin head. Had more head on tap so I won't dock it out of the growler. A little lacing.

Aroma is the best part. Tons of pine hops and nice citrus as well. Smells amazing.

Taste is great. Very hoppy. Hop bomb for sure. But pretty malty too which was surprising for alpine. Usually they make them pretty dry. It's got lots of citrus hops but lots of pine hop flavor as well. Pretty tasty.

Mouthfeel is a little thicker than I like but not bad. Good carb.

Overall I'm glad I'm sharing the growler because drinking over 4 pints of this would be hard to do. But 2 is good. Glad I got some of this.

Big thanks to harrymel for this growler of exceptional goodness!

Pours a clear golden with a topper of thick foam that rises four fingers.

What a yummy smell. Neutral sweet, grapefruit, orange zest, lemon, mango, honeydew melon. Enticing beyond belief.

The taste doesn't diappoint. It is all the flavors of the nose, bright and clean and balanced. The sip ends with just a hint of herbal bitter drying out the citrus perfectly.

This is where the beer shines. Very light on the palate, yet chock full of hop resin, something that seemingly is impossible. Low/med. carb. and a killer clean finish provide just the mouth to showcase a stellar cavalcade of flavors.

Defintely an astoundingly delicious beer, and I give it my highest recommendation along with my deepest thanks to a wonderful trade partner.

Growler courtesy of the always generous Ryan....big thanks on a real surprise!

Transparent medium orange pour with a nice head and spotty lacing throughout.

Fresh tropical fruits on the nose: pulling loads of fresh cut pineapple and white gooey nectarine. Discernible sweetness, but mostly in the form of natural fruit sugar. Nice.

White nectarine really stands out here. Uncanny. Starts sweet and juicy and ends resinous, dry, and mildly bitter.

Overall quite nice and though I realize it's 9%, the bite here is evident. Really my only qualm and it's a small one. If the abv were somehow better hidden, this would be fantastic. As is, it's still very, very good.

From a Growler brought by Alewatcher.
Slightly hazy orange color with a thin cap that fades to a collar.
Man, this aroma gets me excited. packed full of tropical juicyness, the tangerine is to die for in here. Aroma is perfect, truly.
The flavors attack from the same luscious pineapple, mango, tangerine, and orange tropical notes that were exhibited by the aroma, not very bitter here which allows the flavors to be clearer.

really an exceptional IPA, fantastic. This is Alpine's homerun in my book.

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.
