look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Pint for four dollars at Naja's Place, only IPA they had left on tap except for West Coast from Green Flash and I have been drinking quite a bit of that lately
A-Light red with lots of orange in color, 3/4 inch foamy white head that stuck around for a little while, some retention and sticky lacing
S-Pine hoppiness, floral accents, grapefruit, lemon, orange, light malt, and more hops
T-Starts off with citrus hops with mostly grapefruit, some grainy malt in the middle but can barely taste it, dry piney hops in the finish, as it warmed it did not get much sweeter and the citrus actually died down a little bit, dryness in the aftertaste was nice and kept me coming back for more, nicely balanced overall and a tasty IPA
M-Dry and citrusy mouthfeel, not overly carbonated, medium body, taste lingered nicely
D-Could drink a few pints of this, low ABV, goes down easy, not heavy on the stomach, was nice on this hot day
One of the best brews from Alaskan, sessionable india pale ale, will probably buy some bombers soon, will drink certainly drink again, recommended
Serving type: on-tap

12oz into the SN IPA Glass.
Pours a clear, coppery orange with a foamy off white head.
Citrusy, floral hop blend upfront both in the aroma and taste.
Medium bodied, average carbonation.
A decent IPA. Nothing particularly special, but still an enjoyable flavor profile.

3.18/5 rDev -13.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25
Appearance: Bright yellow glass with a lot of haze, holds a thin white cover of foam that leaves some lacing.
Smell: Not a lot going on, a mild hop note, mild clean grainy, almost corn note.
Taste: An APA, not an IPA, the hops just aren't up to the level expected. While everything here is well made, the hops are a bit grassy and earthy where I prefer a citric note. There is a slight metallic aftertaste that is annoying as well. Finish is sweet, where I should be getting a dose of hop oils.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium body, prickly carbonation, bit frothy.
Overall: Not my cup of tea. There is a woody, difference about this that I could see being a love or hate kind of thing, but it doesn't do it for me.
