Golden color and clear. Moderate head and lacing.

Comes across more American than British sure to the low caramel effect of the most malt. This is odd because many of Kassiks beer feature this.

The nose is mild but floral. The flavor leans appropriately to the bitter with pale malt base being brief.

Pours a slightly cloudy copper color with a white rocky head. Has a sweet hop nose to it. Has sweet and earthy hop character. This is a well balanced ipa really nice. Gonna have to track this down when I get home from alaska.

L: light amber slightly Orange and cloudy, Lots of lacing. S: muted citrus, very malty, banana, butterscotch. T: malty, lots of minerality plenty of bitterness, there is biscuit flavor, not overly pine like it disapaited quickly. Also I'm picking up some diacetyl. F: pretty full bodied for a ipa but it is typical of the style I think, something like a extra hoppy ESB. Plenty of carbonation. Overall: This is not a bad beer but there is to much butterscotch on the nose it is out of balanced between the aromas and taste which is kinda weird.

Handsome creamy foam on the dark amber brew poured in the Pilsner glass. Sudsy and watery body that is more pleasant than the taste. Smells like used straw.

Distinctive woody and musty taste. I keep thinking of mushrooms and caramel. They call this an English style IPA with dry hopping. Rather sharp on the tongue. A dirty kind of flavor with some old fruit and a residual sweetness. Persimmons and bitter herbal tea.

Whatever this is, it's not interesting. Drinkable enough but the bitterness gets wearing. Purchased at Fat Stan's in Ketchikan. Seven bucks for the 22 oz bottle. You'd think beer would be more expensive in Alaska.
