COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The return of “Bad Boy,” our ‘other’ double IPA, happens this Thursday as soon as our doors open. It’s NOT bottled but we will be filling growlers at the brewery and glasses at the pub. This beer, created by Shawn, uses hops that weren’t around when Pure Hoppiness was invented. That’s one of the reasons it has such a huge hop presence. We also use predominately Premium British ‘Maris Otter’ barley which enriches the flavor and deepens the body. Be careful at 9.25% abv

brokensail (16486) - Dublin, California, USA - MAR 4, 2010
A: The pour is just like all the other Alpine IPAs--a light golden color with a fluffy white head which leaves some nice lacing. S: The nose is just a burst of citrusy hops which just dominates the senses. The pine is mild and I don’t pick up much malt in this one. T: There is a touch of sweetness which I wasn’t expecting but it works great with the citrus hop flavors. The pine is mild but provides the necessary bitterness to the beer. M: A moderate level of carbonation with a light-medium body. Really the only knock on this beer. D: What a shocker, Alpine made another great (D)IPA. It was a pleasure to try this one, and I would certainly have it again.
