Served from a growler, filled at the La Bodega growler bar in Anchorage, AK. Pours a beautiful orange, slightly hazy, with a small white head that fades quickly. Smell is very nice, primarily tropical and fruity notes, with piny notes in the background. Taste is fantastic, one again very citrus forward and tropical notes, with medium bitterness and a nice finish.

Anchorage Brewing and Hill Farmstead both make some of the finest IPA's in the country, in my opinion. There was no question that a collaboration between the two would result in a fantastic IPA. Mission accomplished.

Poured from a growler. Appearance is light yellow with a fluffy white head and beautiful lacing down the glass. Can't really get any better on appearance.

Smell is very citrusy and floral. I love smelling this when they pour it at the growler bar it's awesome.

Taste is very crisp and clean. Citrus and grapefruit hit you followed by a nice dry finish. I could drink a couple gallons of this.

Mouthfeel is light to medium. Very good for the style.

Well these two dudes know how to make great beer and it shows with this one. Most collaborations I try end up being a mess, but this one was very clean and simple. Good job guys.
