Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: zacharius on 03-26-2005

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.

Nice foamy head. fruity and floral hops aroma. Crisp and herb-y at the start and clean, hoppy finish. One of my favorite easy-to-drink IPAs.

Appearance: Foamy white head with nice retention.

Nose: Papaya, pineapple, guava, a tiny bit of mint and floral.

Taste: Dry and simple on the palate. Dry and crisp with traditional hop bitterness. A less complex taste than nose.

Notes: This is a very good standard IPA. They are making a good product here without trying to reinvent the wheel. A standard good IPA, accurate to style.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

Color is gold with a two-finger white head. Good retention and lacing. Aroma is piney hops, some weed, and some grapefruit. Flavor is similar, with a strong hop profile and understated malt sweetness. Finish is bitter, lingering and clean. Body is lighter than expected, making this quite drinkable.

Overall, a well made IPA that is easily available.
