BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Alpine Beer Company
California, United States
alpinebeerco.com

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 11.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
This Hop Monster uses multiple kettle hop additions with the technique of doubling the hop amount each addition (exponentially). Add in the hop back and the continuous dry hopping and your starting to get the picture. The beer is finished off with a "body-bag" sized hop-bag full of hop cones and oak chips. There it ages and mellows, disguising the alcohol content for a double strong, incredibly hoppy, yet drinkable beer.

Reviewed from a 4oz taster glass. Had a whole bottle a week ago. It's bringin back memories.

Pours a very clear amber clolor. Nice fluffy head. Very nice lacing.

Smells amazing. Lots of citrious and fruity hops. Smells of pineapple and peach. Some pine hops as well.

Tastes just as it smells with the hop fruits in the background and a nice strong hoppyness that is balanced well with the sweetness. The sweetness of the malt is well balanced with the dryness of the booze.

Mouthfeel is awesome. The frothness of the head that most good IPAs have is wonderful. Nice light carb.

Overall an awesome beer that I hope to have many more times.
