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.

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.

Bottle poured into a BarrelHouse Brewing Co pint glass

A: Pours deep golden yellow with a frothy off white head that settles and laces quite well.

S: Citrus, maybe a touch floral, a little pine, and a nice hit of bready malt.

T: Very nice citrus hop hit up front, grapefruit, orange, a touch of pineapple, followed with some pine and floral notes, and backed with light pale malt. Very crisp and clean. Hoppy, but not overwhelming.

M: Light to medium body, moderate carbonation, goes down easy.

O: May not be anything super special, but it's a very solid, very drinkable IPA. Almost too drinkable. Before I knew it my glass was empty. Was a bit worried because it wasn't the freshest bottle, but it still delivered quite well.
