im new to rating beers thought id give it a go,im 26 starting drinking beer more ands cant really stand the light stuff anymore. anyway ill start with this Alaskan brewing co. hopothermia. i drink mostly pale ales. and from what i get out of it i think my taste buds like the hops taste of beers got this hopothermia from a gas station down the street. its 8.5 alc its a double ipa which from what i know is double or triple the hops yet from what i can remember from my teenage years this beer has more of a malt taste. i taste to much of malt and not enough hops which is what i like i like the taste of hops and if i like malt id buy the cheaper malt liquor so imo it taste like a cheaper malt. it doesn't have that thick hops taste i like its smell is light. and the body is light. it doesn't taste bad but its not that great.

Maybe I'm feeling generous. This is a nice double, but I recently had a few that were far superior.

It is deep yellow with thin head. The aroma is rich and dark. The taste is hoppy and malty, but more balanced than many of the style. That is not a good thing, but it makes it pretty drinkable.

Recommended for a taste of midnight sun.

Color of clear copper with a moderate off-white head.

Smell is grapefruit and passionfruit, yet catty.

Taste is catty pine and biscuit, pretty bitter.
