3.9/5 rDev -0.5%
12 ounce bottle into snifter, best before 10/29/2014. Pours lightly hazy deep orange/amber color with a 1-2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, apricot, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, pine, caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with juicy citrus/tropical hop notes with moderate malt sweetness; and good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, apricot, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, floral, grass, caramel, biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of resinous pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, apricot, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, caramel, biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity and balance of bright citrus/tropical hops and moderate malt sweetness; with a nice crisp malt/bitterness balance and minimal cloying bitterness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice DIPA style. All around good complexity and balance of bright citrus/tropical hops and moderate malt sweetness; and very smooth and crisp to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

12oz single, odell snifter
Dark orange body - nice fluffy white cap with sticky retention. Hop profile is juicy and sweet without much of a bitterness bite. Lots of tangerine, clementine, sweet tropical fruit notes. A bit oily - lacking much in the way of body and depth, but pretty clean and refreshing.

Malty citrus pine aroma. Sweet caramels with some nice fruity flavors which lead to a nice hops-pine finish. Decent bitterness that continues to linger well after. Fairly mellow and decently balanced. Overall, a much better IPA than I've come to expect from Alaskan.

A - Pours a clear amber with a one-finger creamy head. Very light lacing.
S - Heavy aroma of grapefruit and pine.
T - Follows the aroma with lots of grapefruit and resinous hops. There is just enough caramel sweetness to balance the bitterness.
M - Medium bodied with medium carbnation. Mouthfeel is sticky with a dry finish.
O - A nice very hop forward DIPA. Very easy drinking.

12oz bottle poured to a standard pint.
A: pours a nice, translucent amber color with about a 1 finger off white head. Leaves spotty lacing in the glass.
S: great aromas of pine/spruce, some citrus, sweet caramel, and alcohol.
T: Very well done. I get the citrus first, followed by the pine flavor. The malt is pretty sweet, but works well with the other flavors.
M: medium body, good carbonation, but not overly bubbly.
O: Very impressed with this DIPA from Alaskan. Quite tasty and drinkable.

A pretty beer. In a snifter the beer poured a clear amber color with a small white head. There was a bit of lace.
A mostly pine aroma. Some citrus. Sweet malt.
Pine resin taste primarily. A wee bit of grapefruit. Caramel.
Sticky. Sweet and hoppy.
