appearance: served in a tyranena nonic pint glass, fairly dark amber body, light tan ring

smell: rustic hops, earthy, alaskan pine

taste: not sure if what i'm drinking is this listing, but the name matches even if some of the previous notes dont. resiny pine hops, moderate bitterness, earthy, caramel, a touch of toffee.

mouthfeel: light bitterness, medium body

overall: pretty good for the e-IPA style

This is a solid beer.

Color is a golden amber, the beer looks delicious and drinkable, very mild head that dissapates quickly (although this was out of a growler, on tap I imagine the beer to be more full headed).

Smells of mild hops and yes pine, pine, pine as the previous reviewer has pointed out.

Taste is solid, but for the hop fans this won't entirely do. The hops are a bit light for a rough Alaskan IPA. However, this makes the beer drinkable at a faster rate, which could be a good thing.. I can also make out pine flavors that make the drink all the more enjoyable.

Try this one, its solid and tastey.

Morning Wood Pou...he...aheeemm..ha... excuse me. Morning Wood pours a light yellow color with some very slight haziness and a decent fizzy white head. Aroma is quite weak by IPA standards, but there is noticeable hop aroma. Taste is a decent hop flavor, but more subtle than I would like. Some citrus/pine hop flavor, but mostly english kind of spiced hop flavor. there is also a slight akward creaminess that sort of takes over and you cant help but get a little annoyed by it. I know that an english style IPA should be more subtle etc. But this to me tastes a bit more like a toned down American IPA than a good english one. Malt profile is also slim. slightly watery. That sounds bad, but I dont mean it to be really bad, just kinda bad. Mouthfeel is noticeably undercarbonated, but not too bad. Drinkability is ok, but the rest of the brews characterisitcs detract from it a bit. Overall defenitely not the worst IPA I have ever had. (That would be one that starts with an "A" and ends in a "lexander Keith's" A decent choice at the bar, but as long as there is a sockeye red tap right next to it, I wont be revisiting this one. Kassik's is a very good brewery, but just slightly off the mark for me on this one.

Serving type: on-tap
