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.

Underrated double IPA I'm glad I tried.

I've never really cared for the other hoppy offerings from Alaskan, and this one didn't really push my buttons either. Nothing "wrong" with it, just bland and soulless.

Slight piney taste. Hint of grapefruit. Similar to All Day IPA. As a double IPA, somewhat hoppy but doesn't linger too long. Very full flavored beer.

Date on bottle says 12-13-14. I wish this beer was fresher.

Poring this beer out produced a minimal white head and left a beautiful dark golden orange beer behind. Not sure if the hops are still fresh but as I breath in Hopothermia has a sweetness, candied orange, marmalade, caramel, yeast, pine, and dankness. Taste on this comes off as bitter, with a balanced sweetness. It resembles the nose when it passes my lips with: orange, citrus, candied marmalade, grapefruit pith, earthyness, and bitter dry astringency. Carbonation is spot on and it has a dry finish despite the sweet balanced initial impression. Mouth feel is slick and medium bodied which I wish was more substantial. Overall this is a great beer even though it is not as fresh as I would prefer. Still its a must try for any double IPA fan, with a nice balance approach to the style. Hope you like this one too because I sure do, cheers!
