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.

This is my favorite Alaska beer. Reliable, solid IPA that I always seem to prefer to the competition.

Color is a bright-gold with big white head. Very murky-cloudy since it is unfiltered and dry-hopped.

Big hop-malt aroma. Get close to the glass and you know something good is happening.

Taste is right-on for an IPA. Big hop flavor but lots of malt foundation. Perfectlly balanced.

Mouthfeel is just about right. Good body nicely balanced by the carbonation.
Perfectly drinkable. You can keep the pints coming all night. Especially good with food (pizza).
Fairweather is available at the Moose's Tooth, Bear Tooth Theater, and many beer bars in the Anchorage area. Unfortunately, not packaged or distributed elesewhere.

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.
