Inviting gold/deep orange color; hoppy with orange and spice on the nose; mild hops and smooth balance on the palate, complex taste that is more earthy than fruity or hoppy, tiny bit of bite on the finish; warmer this beer got, the better I liked it. Solid beer!

Had on tap. Pours clear, gold in color with minimal head. Taste is earl grey tea, hay, and herbal hops. Medium heavy bodied, moderate carbonation, slightly bitter and dry. Makes for a super tasty ipa that I would get several glasses of, even though I prefer the barrel aged version more.

Pours a golden somewhat yellow color and leaves the same color body; the head is about a finger’s worth that bubbles up slightly over the glass, but doesn’t slide over (nice show!); carbonation is seen rising at a moderate pace; aroma has strong piney/citrusy scents up front; taste is mainly bitter through the citrusy/piney hops, but still manages to stick a nice light sweetness in there that carries into the aftertaste and then gives a nice dry bitter finish; it comes across fairly harsh on the palate like a good DIPA should and yet still manages to give the sweet stickiness of a good DIPA; overall, hey this is great stuff that I almost always have again. Well done Alaskan Brewing Company.

Very smooth run of the mill DIPA. Color as expected dark brown orange with a nice ring of lace after settling. Smell is more potent than their other IPA's very piney and citrus like. Taste is good bitter with some lingering bitterness but nothing exciting still it's rather good mend of hop to malt ratio with the gravity should give it some merit. Drinks like the regular IPA light to medium making this somewhat dangerous.

Overall nothing I can get again but a decent DIPA and very affordable at around 2 a single probably less for the sixer.
