COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In early 2014 Alaskan re-branded their IPA as Icy Bay IPA

The very intense, complex aromatic character with a refreshing, crisp finish is achieved by dry hopping. The fruity, citrusy aroma is a nice complement with grilled prawns and spicy foods.

Smooth and hoppy without being overpoweringly bitter. It's a little sweet for an IPA but not at all astringent.

Pershing (482) - Garland, Texas, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Clear orange with a nice size head that lingers around. Lots of visual carbonation. Aroma of citrus and pine. Light body with a good amount of hop bitterness. The dry hopping balance to malt is excellent without over doing it. Clean crisp lingering hop finish.

Clear, radiant light orange amber with a frothy white head. Dry. Moderate bitterness. Not fruity. Comes across as kinda papery. Not my favorite. So many other more exciting options.
