4.6/5 rDev +1.3%
As part of a trade where I brought the Matt and Coldponcho brought this growler. I proceeded to drink half of it, despite there being more than 2 people :)
Pours a dark orangey color that suggests a malt profile. The nose is big tropical hops, citrus goodness, medium malt body and resiny pine. Tum. Tropical citrus (orange, pineapple) and dank pine hoppiness on top of a moderate malt base. This beer is crazy good. So drinkable that I would likely drink too much before I knew what happened. Good carbonation, good medium body. Not too much of a sugary mouthfeel like you sometimes get with IIPAs. Overall, this beer is really, really good. I would like many more growlers of this. Yum.

Thanks to Biglobo for this one!
Pours a half finger of white head. Really nice lace rings. Color is a clear golden orange. Solid.
Aroma: Dank and hoppy. Cascade hop flavor. Light onion notes. Not to fruity, but a little shows. Very solid.
Taste: Very dank and weedy. Again, a cascade onion touch shows. Grassy and floral. Straight up hops. No malts.
Mouthfeel: Bitter but smooth. Medium bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. Ends sticky, but clean.
Overall, a really awesome beer. Very drinkable. Top notch dipa. I could drink a lot of this in a night.

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.

Reviewed from notes I took out of the growler poured into a tulip.
Pours a clear dark golden color with a very nice large white head that clings on to the glass and doesn't want to let go. The aroma is putting out huge citrus smells with a nice sweet fruitiness followed with some lighter pine notes. Very sweet refreshing fruts and citrus as well as strong floral and pine flavors. A medium body that coats the mouth and lingering flavors. Fantastic beer.

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.
