Alaska, United States

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.20%

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.

Decent head rapidly collapses on itself

Surprisingly clear with a rather rudy gold colour

Flavor is very very fruity which is enhanced by some sweet roasted malts followed by some random piney bitterness that's quite inchoate but not terrible

Mouthfeel is light and fluffy but a more robust mouthfeel would be more appropriate

Overall pretty good

Golden amber in color, clear, foamy, white head with a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is fruit, both tropical and citrus. Some caramel malt as well. The flavor is more on the citrus side, orange and tangerine, and the malt is present in the finish. Juicy mouthfeel, with a nice citrus hops finish. A decent IPA overall.
