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.

Icy Bay is a nice sessionable IPA....little heavier than the Founder's All Day IPA...and probably more flavorful. The beer poured a clear golden with nice white head that laced nicely. The scent carried some fresh hops that leaned toward piny and citrus. The taste was an great balance between malt and hops. Starts smooth...bitterness kicks in the center then mellow again. The mouthfeel was light to medium in body with decent carbonation. Overall this is a great beer.

a- thin clear gold with head that disappears quickly

s- hops strong in piney scent

t- Very drinkable ipa with enough hop to satisfied a indian snob

m- bounces oo the tongue and give a creamy feel and tingles the nostrils

Overall a fine bargain beer I would choose over the peers in this category.
