A little chilled, decanted into my imperial pint glass. Brewed in Talkeetna! That's cool.

We have a beautiful beer here. A *slightly* hazy, light golden-orange color that shines like gold, and a nice little one finger cap of white froth.

An aromatic success as well. A really substantial IPA aroma that unpacks all the goods I want with good potency. Tropical fruit like mango and pineapple, bright lime, lemon and orange, pine, honey, bread, and of course, sweet, DANK hops. Exceedingly lovely to sniff.

The flavor doesn't quite match the fruitiness of the aroma, but comes through big time on the astringent pine and citrus rind. Plus it has a STRONG, lingering bite of bitterness, dank hops, and bread in the finish. An IPA made for fans of bitterness for sure. And I happen to be a total sucker for bitterness. Bring on the IBU abuse!

Its body is just a little on the thin side, which doesn't lend to a very fortyfying or substantial feel, but rather a very quaffable and refreshing one. I believe this would make an excellent thirst-quenching, post exercise ale for sure.

This is really an outstanding and astounding IPA. Once my palate adjusts to the bitterness, I get a little more of the tropical fruit nuances in the flavor profile. But what really impresses me is that this delivers IMPERIAL IPA-level bitterness and dankness. It's made a memorable impression on me.

This beer really deserves a higher rating. For a beer geek in Alaska, this beer is an oasis. These guys are doing everything right. Cans. Big hop flavor. Alaska! What more could you ask for. Now, the beer. Big hop kick In the front that just does not quit. The finish is just as big. Very chewy. It leaves and almost "I just ate something fantastic" feel in your mouth. Minds out the gutters! I would drink this beer if it was available in PA.
