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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

This beer pours a golden color with a foamy white head, looks good so far. Smell is that of floral hops but fainter than I'd expect for an IPA. The taste was a big letdown, this beer had an astringent grainy taste to it. Hop bitterness was there but the astringency took away from the taste. It could have used more flavor hops as well. This beer is medium-light bodied. One of the worst offerings from this great brewery. After their smoked porter, oatmeal stout and ESB, I felt let down.

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.
