A West Coast Double IPA So mega-hopped it will take you to hop heaven. Weíve used hops in the boil, more hops in the giant hopback, and added to that, an incredible amount of dry-hopping for that cutting-edge ďhop bite.Ē Once youíve tasted this unique beer, all others pale in comparison. 1.072 OG Classified IBU 8%ABV

Smooth, hoppy, but balanced. Iím a hophead, so I prefer the exponential hoppiness, but this is a top ten beer.

22 oz. bottle. Pours a clear orange amber color with a small white head. The aroma screams West Coast IPA with big citrus and tropical fruit with supporting pine,floral hops. This is supported by a sweet malt presence. The flavor has a base of sweet malts and caramel, but is all about the hops. The orange/grapefruit citrus intermingles with tropical fruit notes, pine, and herbal hints. Moderate bitterness throughout with a dry finish. Medium bodied. This is as easy drinking as any DIPA Iíve had.

Generous sample before the Sexual Chocolate release. Bright amber pour with white head. Love this un-fancy label. Lovely huge fruity, citrusy hop bomb. Fresh, crisp, and refreshing. Crisp palate. Delicious.

DeadGirl (478) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 19, 2010
UPDATED: APR 23, 2010 On tap at San Diego Brewing Co. (San Diego, CA): Pours light copper. Aroma more on the fruity end for itís style; grapefruit, orange zest, apples, pine, and caramel. Flavors are of thick toffee, caramel syrup, floral hops, and citrus. Drinkability: Full on juicy-bitter! Pairing: Rich carrot cake. Rebuy: Yes. #284 on 19022010, DG.

brokensail (16057) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 15, 2010
A: A very nice looking copper amber color with a small white head and very nice lacing. S: This beer is aptly named. This is a very fruity IPA featuring lots of grapefruit, mango, and pineapple. Some pine and malt round things out on the finish. T: Not nearly as fruity as I would have expected from the nose. There are still some good grapefruit notes, however. This one is very piney and bitter, which I love. The bitterness keeps the malt pretty much out of the picture, which is, again, fine with me. M: A very crisp feel on the tongue, which is helped by amble carbonation. D: Yet another solid IPA from the folks down in San Diego.

Bomber big thanks to BossHossBikes! Pours yellow/orange with a good white head. This is a west coast IIPA aroma if I ever smelled one. It isnít super powerful but has big grapefruit, evergreen and assorted citrus. The flavor has a bite with deep citrus and a fantastic herbal finish. I could use more intensity from the style but I guess thatís why Alpine makes two IIPAís. The bold flavor is crystal clear and delicious.

Bomber, shared by NachlamSie. Pours a nice gold color with fluffy white head. The aroma is rich hoppiness with lots of pine and grapefruit, with some gentle, resinous citrus notes; orange, lemon, mango, and a little bit of honey. Flavor is honey and light caramel sweetness with a nice floral and citric hop profile. It isnít overwhelmingly bitter, but has lots of fresh hop character. The finish is slight pine with some cherry and orange. A little bit of woody bitterness sticks around in the aftertaste. This is some good stuff.

MeadMe (1611) - Fishhawk, Florida, USA - JAN 10, 2010
A: Pours a hazy golden orange color with a nice thick two finger head. The head lingers forever and produces beautiful lacing all the way down the glass. S: A huge floral bouquet of a nose. It is a perfect battle between citrus and pine. Fresh cut grass wafts from the glass along with a nice sweet rock candy type malt. This beer begs you to taste it. T: And as for the taste boy does it pull thru. I would call this a perfectly crafted IPA as opposed to a DIPA, but I am not going to take away any points for that. The balance between malt and hops is divine. You are immediately blasted by the flavor of citrus and pine along with a sweetness reminiscent of state fair cotton candy which arrives on the scene to sweeten it out. What you get is a beer that is balanced like no other. M: Medium bodied. There is a perfect level of carbonation to make this one a true winner.

tripelthreat (190) - Soquel, California, USA - JAN 8, 2010
Bottle. Dark golden amber body capped by a large off white head with some nice lacing. Nose is pine, orange, a fleeting bit of pineapple, all of it somewhat understated. Flavor is more of the same with addition of grapefruit, some bready and caramel malt residing in the background the whole time. Bitterness is present and lingering with a zesty, pithy, herbal quality in the finish that isnít entirely pleasant. Still very good.
