Name: Pure Hoppiness
Style: Imperial IPA
Brewery: Alpine Beer Company website
Region: Alpine, California
ABV: 8.0% Abv
How served: 22oz capped bomber poured into a Duvel glass.
My Overall Opinion: Very Good.
I paired this beer with: Fish taco’s made with grilled & smoked tilapia with a spicy salsa. This beer matches very well with the spiciness of the fish taco.
Tasted on: Sunday March 14th, 2010.
Note: This drinks more like an IPA then an Imperial IPA. It is a very good Imperial IPA, but I’ve had better, including Alpine’s Exponential Hoppiness which I had yesterday. Drinkability wise, Pure Hoppiness is more drinkable then Exponential Hoppiness, so if you’re going to have more then one, drink Pure Hoppiness over Exponential Hoppiness.
On the Label: This mega-hopped, west-coast style India Pale Ale will take you to hop heaven! We’ve used hops in the boil, more hops in giant hopback, and added to that, an incredible amount of dry-hopping for that cutting edge “hop bite”. Once you’ve tasted this unique beer, all others pale in comparison. Drink better beer so.. DRINK ALPINE ALE or GO TO BED!
