For whatever reason the hops on this one come through with a
bit too much vegetable character. Otherwise a good beer.

I'm a sucker for pale ales loaded with tropical aromas. Freeride is right up my alley. It's a touch too dry to deliver all of the tropical fruit promised on the nose, but otherwise, it's a great APA.

Poured into a pint glass I get about an inch of head. Little bit rocky head. Light copper in color. It's kinda light but we'll balanced. Not bitter at the end. Has drinkability.

Very nice session beer; Alaskan's calling card seems to be crisp, clean tasting brews, and this one certainly fits that mold. Smells citrusy, tastes refreshing but definitely hoppy, and has a nice carbonated feel. Another solid choice from Alaskan Brewing.
