Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
Alaskan IPA is honey gold in color with a fruity, citrus aroma. An enticing blend of hops and our dry hopping process, in which hops are added directly to tanks during fermentation, give this brew a very intense, complex aromatic character with a refreshing hop finish.

3.75/5  rDev +1.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Hazy medium gold body, with a large, dense, and coarse white head, which retains well. Faint streams of fine carbonation drift slowly to the surface. Scattered, patchy lacing adorns the glass walls.

Aroma: Fairly prominent grapefruit and pine tar hops dominate the aroma. Sweet, pale malt is also notable, although it is overshadowed by the hops.

Taste: Opens with sharp grapefruit rind hop flavors, these dominate throughout the taste. As the taste progresses, sweet orange hops are present, although to a greatly lesser extent, as well, as a modest pale malt presence, with a subtle toasted flavor. Late in the taste, there are some notable grassy hop flavors as well. Finishes with a lingering, moderate grapefruit and pine hop flavors.

Mouth feel: Smooth, very soft, and full, with slight zesty carbonation.

Drinkability/notes: Nicely done, a solid example of the style.

Presentation: Packaged in a short twelve-ounce brown glass bottle with a pry-off cap, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

3.26/5  rDev -11.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Beer pours a hazy orange color with a strong finger of fluffy white head.

Piney aroma, no malt notes. Fairly simple, just a whole lot of hops that smell like pine.

Beer also tastes pretty simple. It is hop forward with a bitter lingering finish. Taste of pine and a little danky.

Medium Body, good carbonation for the style.

Overall, an okay beer. There are no flaws, and it is pretty easy drinking. It just does not stand out or anything. It would be good for a session IPA. It is not too high in ABV or IBUs.
