4.99/5 rDev +9.9%
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!
