Alaskan Brewing Co.
Alaska, United States

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.

Alaskan IPA has a thin, white head and a semi-clear, golden appearance, with some streaming bubbles and minimal lacing. The aroma is of grapefruit and sweet, white bread. Taste is the same, with maybe some pith and pine oil. Bitterness is strong, but not overwhelmingly so. Mouthfeel is medium and oily, and Alaskan IPA finishes fairly dry, refreshing, and quite drinkable. Overall, this is considerably nice, and I score it as being most excellent. Check it out!
