TXBadger (1918) - 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.

12oz bottle pours a pale amber color without much head. Mild hops and a little watery tasting.

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.

Jamedra (693) - Hostivice, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 10, 2014
Bottle, many thanks to StefanSD. Láhev 355 ml. Aroma je příjemné chmelové s výrazným pomerančovým nádechem. Pěna je bílá, jemná, nízká a mizící.Barva samotného piva je pomerančově oranžová a lehce kalná. Chuť je velmi svěží, má příjemný mandarinkový nádech s jemnými sladovými podtóny, finiš je středně hořký a držící. V ústech je pivo velmi lehké se středním řízem. Celkově se jedná o dobře pitelnou APA, výbornou na žízeň.

Draught at Alaska Lodge (Sea-Tac Airport), as Freeride IPA
Cloudy golden color. Aroma of hops, a bit earthy (manure), feety, fruity. Smooth mouthfeel; the malt profile is light, leaving room to the hops, but the hops could be more fruity and biting...
Ordinary IPA.
