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.

I was lucky to try this for the first time the day after the release on 9-18-13, and they still had some bottles left, along with being available at the brewpub. I got a glass at the brewpub, and was blow away and ended up ordering 6 more! That's right, 6 more. All I can say is bliss. This is the best damn IPA (triple IPA) I have had in my life. Being in San Diego, and having a lot of great stuff around, that is saying a lot.

Smell is sweet, fruity and crisp. Pours with a decent amount of bubbles and head. Taste absolutely amazing, smooth, not too hoppy, and floral sweetness. Hides the high abv (11%) amazing well and that's why this one is so special. Absolutely delicious. I would do anything to seek this out.. even worth trading a Dark Lord to get your hands on it!
