Oscbert (1193) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 18, 2014
Fruity floral hop aroma, mango dried pineapple with bready and light caramel malts. Pours a slightly hazy light amber color with lasting white head. Slightly sweet light bready flavor with floral hops, light citrus. Refreshing. Light medium bodied with medium CO2, lingering hoppy finish Lightly hopped APA refreshingly easy to drink.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a medium, well retained tiny bubbled, ivory head, with slight lacing, over a clear, light amber (SRM 7) body....nose is pine, resin, citrus peel from the hops, light sweet malts with toffee/caramel hints, no esters......taste is lightly sweet malt with hints of toffee/caramel, light floral hops, pine, resin notes, light citrus hints, with a moderate lingering bitterness......mouth feel, body light of medium, no alcohol or astringency, finishing clean, with light acid. This is a slightly light take on an APA. Balance is slightly to the hops, making for a very clean beer, but the bitterness is on the margin of being too low. A slight addition to the early hop time in the boil would not be remiss. BJCP 7/3/14/4/6

TXBadger (2230) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 28, 2014
Pours a nice amber color, slightly off white head. Hoppy aroma, citrus, pine, and some grass; all follow onto the palate, but more citrus and pine than grass. Finishes pretty clean.

August 13th, 2012 - You don’t see this one in every remote bar and corner of Alaska, but Alaskan Brewery’s Freeride APA is another one of the core drinkables coming out of the surprisingly small and quaint brewery tucked up in our country’s most rugged state. It pours with a thick foamy head, even in a laughably inappropriate small plastic cup - the kind reserved for daycares and hospital lunch trays. And yet again, against the odds, I catch a clear and redolent aroma of sharp, sweet hops, a touch of pine, and a smattering of white grape juice. A busy palate leads the beer onto the tongue, with a flat, rusty and metallic IPA taste, and concluding with a strangely dry crystal malt style pilsener finished. It’s a curious beer, but quite good, and so far, more engaging than the other ubiquitous Alaskan Brewery beers.

On tap at Milwaukee Brew Fest 2013. Hazy copper with a small off-white head. Slight pine, hops, orange, grapefruit, and fresh cut grass. Light mouth-feel and bitter.
