Notes: A hop lover and beer connoisseur's favorite, this ale is surprisingly drinkable and fully delights with its hoppy aromatics. Stick your nose in this one.

On tap at the brewpub the other day.

The IPA pours a light orange color with OK head retention and lacing. Nose is classic IPA, with some pretty noticeable citrusy bitterness and black pepper. On the palate, this IPA is all west coast, with a very dry flavor profile. The hoppy bitterness is huge and impressive, and really dominates everything else. I get some lemon, grapefruit bitterness, with some blackpepper as well. The finish is long, dry and bitter. This beer is at most medium bodied, and alcohol is well disguised.

A very nice IPA, but it seemed just a bit out of balance to me, as a bit harsh as well on the palate. Still, this is a pretty solid beer, one I would happily order again with food at the MT.

Enjoyed on tap and served in a pint glass at the Moose's Tooth.

Not much of a head, save for a partial sheet of swirled white froth on the surface. The beer's a dark hazy gold.

Smells like pine, citrus, and tropical fruits. Very nice.

Tastes really good! There's bitter pine, biscuity breadiness, juicy citrus, and, oddly, a subtle apple cider aspect. Somewhat of a spicy finish. Delicious.

Full-bodied for an IPA. Good.

Really a wonderful IPA from this little brewery. And it goes great with their pizza.

Picked up a growler from Mooses Tooth. Nice citrus and pine smell. Pours a dark gold with little head. Taste has a bite to it and the hops hits in the back. There are flavors of citrus and somewhat of an apple taste (maybe). One of the best IPA's out there.

If you get a chance to visit anchorage check out this beer at Moses tooth. This IPA is incredibly smooth and full of taste.
