Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: sprucetip on 11-28-2012

Nugget and Apollo hops added in the brew kettle provide a green, floral aroma and citrus hop base, while the later addition of Amarillo, Citra, and Centennial hops add notes of spicy grapefruit and orange - complimenting the resilient malt profile.

the much hyped hopothermia! this really is good beer, some of the better alaskan stuff ive had in a while now. nice clear shiny penny color to this, under an inch of white head in my globe. the nose is sweet not bitter, not uncommon in a big ipa, but what is uncommon is the lightness of feel, no sticky resinous gnarliness. its clean and light, only medium bodied, and while sweet in some ways, there is no leftover sugar. cool mix of hop flavor, lack of bitterness, and drinkability in terms of feel. the flavor has a distinct apple fruitiness to it, in among the oils. almost no bitterness at any point of this at all, and i almost wish for some. just enough carbonation, that aspect is spot on. a bit of a different take on the big ipa here, not west coast, not east coast, not midwestern even, insofar as there are stylistic points from each region. its just well made ipa, drinking far lighter than its announced 8.5% abv. not the best thing alaskan has ever made, but i see the appeal.
