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.

Quite a nice-looking golden amber blonde color with adequate foam in the Stella Artois goblet. Delightful flora, pineapple aroma. Plenty of spritz on the tongue.

Some malt sweetness. Pleasant malty mouthfeel. Deeply resiny with a piney edge and moderately bitter. Beery in all the right ways. Crisp like a Pale Ale.

Quite a drinkable lighter variety of IPA, but plenty of hops to distinguish it from anything else. A pleasant quaff. From the 12 oz can purchased at Bottleworks in Seattle.

From 12 oz can to pint glass

A: A yellowish tan in color, clear, a gentle pour forms a relatively sudsy head, leaving patchy lacing.

S: The nose if fairly subdued with hints at husky grain and honey sweetness, followed by a touch of lemony citrus and a floral aspect. Relatively malt-forward.

T/M: A little more hop-forward on the palate, the lemon and honey notes hit up front. A bready complexion carries a fairly straight-forward balance of flavors, simple yet refreshing. Slightly vinous hop tones work toward a dry finish, with lingering bitter residue.

A simple and refreshing IPA, with malty aspects and a flavor balance along the lines of IPA's you'd find in the northwest (not literally the northwest, but beer-region-wise)

Poured from 12oz can into a pint glass.

Appearance: light orange hue with a light haze and a moderate effervescence. Head is a thin finger of frothy ivory foam. Not too bad.

Smell: sweet malt with a big, floral hop aroma. Fragrant and enticing!

Taste: lightly toasty malt with more of those same hops; kind of reminds me of Canadian floral gum candy. I like IPAs in this vein, and this is a nice, balanced one.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a decent, well-integrated carbonation and a surprisingly fulfilling creaminess. Dig it!

Overall: a tasty and drinkable IPA. I like light, floral IPAs like this one; they really go down easy.
