BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Alpine Beer Company
California, United States

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.

Ive had the pleasure of having this beer a few times. Great taste. Strong but feels smooth like a single. Awesome west coast hop taste. I love the hop taste this beer gives my taste buds.
