Very Good
Notes: A American-Style Pale Ale with an extra hop kick! A crisp, quenching ale with hints of grapefruit in the bitterness. A little malted Oat added to the mix to lend a nice texture and balance to all that hoppy goodness!

Had this draft at Humpy's Great Alaskan Ale House in the airport at Anchorage, Alaska. It has a distinctive strong hoppy and citrus smell and the color is dark amber. It has medium lacing and a clean hoppy finish. The head poured at one finger and remained as a very thin foam which kept lacing for half the glass. The carbonation was strong and the mouth-feel was medium heavy and not too watery. The flavor was a strong medium bitterness hops, pine, and citrus that complements the smell very well. the Kenai River brew was very balanced and would be a very good with-seafood beer as it doesn't overpower the palate but seems to deliver flavor that matches the aroma in terms of strength.

IBU 74

On tap at the Anchorage Airport Humpy's.

A - Pours a darker, slightly hazy yellow with a nice fluffy white head. Good retention and lots of lacing left on the glass.

S - Pretty mild, but some wheat and citrus to come through.

T - Very nice citrus, mostly grapefruit and some lemons.

D - Nice carbonation and body.

O - I was pleasantly surprised by this one. Very refreshing and tasty. I wish I had more time to drink more.
