Alpine Bad Boy Double IPA. It's better than Alpine's flagship beer, Pure Hoppiness, which is another double IPA (and was one of my all-time favorite beers). Maybe a year or two ago I would have never said that, but something about Pure Hoppiness has changed recently and I'm not digging it one bit. Bad Boy is fresh, green, bitter, and DRY. Pure Hop on the other hand just tastes old (even when fresh) and tastes muddled and weird- a far cry from the snappy, citrusy, dry beer that let the hops shine through so well a couple years ago. Thoroughly enjoyed this pint of Bad Boy at O'Brien's today.
