Brewed by:
Alaskan Brewing Co.
Alaska, United States

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.20%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Alaskan IPA is honey gold in color with a fruity, citrus aroma. An enticing blend of hops and our dry hopping process, in which hops are added directly to tanks during fermentation, give this brew a very intense, complex aromatic character with a refreshing hop finish.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Bright yellow glass with a lot of haze, holds a thin white cover of foam that leaves some lacing.

Smell: Not a lot going on, a mild hop note, mild clean grainy, almost corn note.

Taste: An APA, not an IPA, the hops just aren't up to the level expected. While everything here is well made, the hops are a bit grassy and earthy where I prefer a citric note. There is a slight metallic aftertaste that is annoying as well. Finish is sweet, where I should be getting a dose of hop oils.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body, prickly carbonation, bit frothy.

Overall: Not my cup of tea. There is a woody, difference about this that I could see being a love or hate kind of thing, but it doesn't do it for me.
