Alaskan Husky IPA is based on a small batch SMaSH Mosaic IPA recipe using a single malt and single hop to explore the specific desired characteristics of certain malts and hops. Hop varieties are often best known for either bittering properties or for high aromatics and complex flavors. The Mosaic hop is an example of a hop that can bring both elements to a beer.

Alaskan Husky IPA is made from glacier-fed water and features Mosaic hops and premium Pilsen malt.

Slightly hazy golden pour, small head some lacing. Nose gets some caramel, taste bud say some pine and grapefruit. IPA or pale ale?

L-Very clear golden color with nice frothy white head.

S-Dark berries, citrus, along with some earthy/grassy notes..

T-Really light flavored...seems like a pilsner like malt base..crackery...grainy...hops lend a touch of citrus and berries..very lightly flavored for an IPA

F-On the bright side this is clean as can be. On the down side it is thin and lacking body and character for an IPA.

O-Maybe passable as a pale ale but even in that category it would be too light in character and's off flavors...but really not an IPA for people who like this style...

Had a pint on tap at Nortons Seafood house in Ankorage Alaska. Nice clear golden color. A small white head with good retention despite the dreaded chilled glass. Tons of lacing. Aroma and taste were mostly piney resinous hops with some citrus as well. Mputhfeel was crisp and nicely bitter. A good IPA.

Very slightly hazy golden color with a substantial and lasting white head and some nice lacing.
The aroma is light caramel malt, citrus and pine.
The taste is some nice light caramel malt, grapefruit. The finish dries out a bit with lingering pine resin and grapefruit zest.
The body is light/medium, moderate carbonation, smooth and very drinkable.
Altogether, this is a mild but tasty IPA, should be a good introduction to IPA style, very nice.

12 ounce before dating on the bottom of "11/19/22"

Lighter brew, with about a medium haze, all under a very large and very long lasting cap, all with tiny bubbles continuing to rise...nice look to this one.

On the sniff its earthy, zesty and floral.

Tasty and refreshing IPA with more of the nose following through into the mouth and onto the taste buds....zesty, citric, floral, earthy, tea like qualities ...yes a lot going on here....complex stuff that is well worth a try.
