We love the name and concept of Alaskan Brewing Company's Rough Draft series. Hopothermia is another take on a double IPA from the folks up in Juneau...

The beer pours a golden-amber color with a sticky off-white head. Hop aromas dominate with scents reminiscent of tangerines, oranges, and pine trees. The taste is much more balanced with sweet malt flavors working overtime to balance out tons of hop flavors like tangerines, peaches, pine resin, and a delectable herbalness. Well carbonated, Hopothermia is medium in body. As far as we know, only available on draft.

Cheers!
