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.

pours out of the twist off 12 ounce stubby bottle a clear pale gold colour with a thin off white head. head reduces to some thin bubbles and leaves some spotty lace. light caramel malt aroma and a healthy dose of herbal and piney hops. grainy malt flavour, rather light for an IPA. hopping is again on the reserved side of things, slightly medicinal and herbal. almost tea like. this has an english IPA feel to it and really resembles nothing of any west coast characteristics. moderate bitterness. medium body at best, feels like an ordinary pale ale with its spritzy tongue tickling character. nice enough drinkability, but nothing that leaves me longing for more. would probably be a nice compliment to some chicken wings or other appetizer.

overall rather tame and a bit disappointing. nothing bad about this offering, just nothing to get even a little excited about. i'll probably not revisit this, and could not recommend.
