A hop lover and beer connoisseur's favorite, this ale is surprisingly drinkable and fully delights with its hoppy aromatics. Stick your nose in this one.

A decent IPA. Served in a pint glass, it's deep clear blood orange, with a slight soapy head and visible carbonation. Nose is mild hops and hints of pine. Taste is nice sappy hops and resinous pine juice. Pretty solid mouthfeel and good drinkability. Probably my favorite from Moose's Tooth.

On tap at the pub, Fairweather IPA is dirty blonde with a white head leaving light lace.

Smell is resiny, citrus hops, but with odd, yet very distinct cream soda note. They sell their own draught cream soda, I wonder if they taps or lines or something got cross contaminated...

Taste is hoppy, pungent, and rather bitter. Not much malt balance, just a bit of bread.

Mouthfeel is creamy, with a medium-light body.

Drinkability is OK. Good enough, but the hops balanced is skewed towards bitterness rather then taste and aroma...

ON tap at the Brewpub yesterday, my first beer in AK in two years.

A - Pours a nice bright, darker orange with nice bright white head. Tons of lacing stair stepping down the glass as I drink.

S - Smell is pretty mild, but there is some nice piney hops and grassy/floral tones.

D - Drink is also mild, but again very pine and grassy.

O - A bit muted, but flavor is nice. An IIPA WOULD ROCK!

On tap at the brewpub the other day.

The IPA pours a light orange color with OK head retention and lacing. Nose is classic IPA, with some pretty noticeable citrusy bitterness and black pepper. On the palate, this IPA is all west coast, with a very dry flavor profile. The hoppy bitterness is huge and impressive, and really dominates everything else. I get some lemon, grapefruit bitterness, with some blackpepper as well. The finish is long, dry and bitter. This beer is at most medium bodied, and alcohol is well disguised.

A very nice IPA, but it seemed just a bit out of balance to me, as a bit harsh as well on the palate. Still, this is a pretty solid beer, one I would happily order again with food at the MT.

16oz pint on tap at the restaurant. Poured a hazy gold with about one finger of head. Excellent lacing on the glass as the beer is consumed.

Smell consisted of citrus with a nice floral bouquet aroma.

Taste was that of a traditional NW IPA...nice amount of citrus and bitter pucker from the hops.

Mouthfeel was crisp and lively. On par for the style.

Overall was very refreshing and enjoyable American IPA. Nice citrus notes for those who favor that flavor profile in an IPA.
