On draught in Shagway. Itaks a hoppy beer, citrus, pine, flowers. The aroma and the flavor bear this out. The finish is pine, flowers. Medium in body. Decent, enjoyable, if not memorable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Light amber body with a frothy white head. Hoppy aroma of citrus, resin, mango, peach. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. A little too much resin seeps into the tasty citrus flavors along with some raw hop leafs, but overall an enjoyable APA and one of Alaskan’s better efforts.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
5th July 2014, on tap inside the Seafood restaurant of Treasure Island, Las Vegas. My pint arrived almost headless, a reddy amber body almost clear and highly carbonated. Hops all the way in this fairly bitter brew, a citrus bent to the flavour and aroma. Grapefruit notes seemed to leap out at me. Refreshing and a lot better than it looked when it arrived at the table.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a bright, semi clear reddish amber with a medium white head. A fresh aroma finds grapefruit, mango, pineapple, grassy hops, and hints of pine. The taste is very dry and yields good hoppy bitterness. There are plenty of grassy hops and is quite fruity, with pineapple, orange, milder grapefruit and still a little bit of pine. Short fruity aftertaste. More light in body, slick in texture, with about average carbonation. This is very refreshing and easy to drink. I could find myself happily drinking a bunch of these. If I could find this in my part of the world, I’d buy this often.

Wow...not a big fan of pale ales and not expecting to like this one but it went down very smooth with a nice finish. Not sure off the top of my head but this may be my highest rated pale ale.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice, bright and refreshing APA. Tangerine notes with light bittering like orange peel, but not overwhelmingly citrusy. Finish is clean, crisp, and doesn’t clobber the palate with hoppiness. Relatively dry and easy to drink.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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
