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.

12 oz bottle into nonic

A: pale golden color with great clarity, fairly firm head that left moderate but not exceptionally fine lacing

S: predominant pine with a background of bitter citrus, a bit minty

T: pine and pineapple with a far more pronounced bread backbone than the nose would suggest. Alcohol warms it up at the finish which is fairly herbal in nature

M: rich and carbonated at first, ends slightly tanic and dry

O: It's a good match to the style and I like the balance of pine and citrus, worth a try.

Pours a hazy yellow-ish color with a big white head. In the aroma, citrus hops, a bit on the the sweeter side as well. In the taste, a mix of citrus and piney hops, again a bit sweet. A nice bitter mouthfel and a dry, hoppy aftertaste. Very nice, and actually kind of standard, but very good.
