Alaskan Hopothermia Double IPA
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a shaker pint glass. Served chilled.
A) Golden amber with nice clarity. Good finger of head with excellent retention. Several rings of lace clinging to the pint.
S) Light pine and tangelo. Heavy citrus peel. Slightly floral...
T) Quite a bit of citrus rind, piney, very earthy hops, decent malt backing, which is primarily a mild caramel sweetness. The 8.5% ABV is well hidden.
M) Medium bodied brew with moderate carbonation, which creates a crisp lively feel. Bitter citrus rind finish.
O) An enjoyable beer for sure... I'd go for this again... Cheers!

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.
A: Clear copper with tons of carbonation. Frothy, offwhite head with lots of little bubbles poking through. Head drapes off the sides of the glass until the end.
S: Caramel, toffee, biscuits, and some grapefruit and pine as well.
T: Stinging grapefruit citrus and bite of bitter hop resin dominates up front. That bitterness keeps coming back, and is never fully overcome by the sweetness impart by the malt. Some tobacco and pepper in between. Finishing flavor is a bit flat though, not sure if that's because taste buds have been scorched.
M: Bitterness reigns, but never ventures into undrinkable territory. Malt backbone is there just doesn't transition between bitter and sweet when needed. Good warm boozy feel at the end though, and head is fairly creamy.
O: An adventurous beer that isn't firing on all cylinders. Still a good beer, with a few tweaks could be a very good beer.
