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.

Easy to overlook the Alaskan IPA; I mean when I think of IPA, Alaska doesn't exactly pop into my head. This is really good though. This was poured form a bottle marked best by 6/29/13, so fresh, but not as fresh as you'd like. Nonetheless, nothing blows your mind and nothing is disappointing. It definitely grows on you. You could do better, but you could do much worse. For the price it is certainly worth a look if you're interested in trying a new IPA.

Alaskan IPA has a thin, white head and a semi-clear, golden appearance, with some streaming bubbles and minimal lacing. The aroma is of grapefruit and sweet, white bread. Taste is the same, with maybe some pith and pine oil. Bitterness is strong, but not overwhelmingly so. Mouthfeel is medium and oily, and Alaskan IPA finishes fairly dry, refreshing, and quite drinkable. Overall, this is considerably nice, and I score it as being most excellent. Check it out!
