3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear gold with small head that leaves quickly with not much lacing. Aroma is subdued, but a good balance of malt and hops. Taste is lively carbonation, mild citrus hops, some malt, and a little spice. Pretty balanced overall, but the taste wasnít quite as good as the aroma.

Clear golden with an assertive nose of lemon rind, grassy pine, and a bit of caramel covered grapefruit. Flavor is a bit malt forward with bland notes of pale cereal grains and just a touch of un-buttered popcorn, with a mild hop kick in the middle of lemongrass. Light grassy bitteness throughout.

12 oz bottle from a six pack bought at Super 1 in Rathdrum, ID. Pours almost clear copper with a medium off-white head with decent retention; leaves a little lace. Aroma is mostly catty with a little pine, citrus, bread. Taste is bittersweet with an emphasis on bitter. More citrusy in flavor than aroma; grainy, bready. Body is medium, carbonation high. Decent APA.

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2013 Does not have much aroma to it. Is very smooth with a mild bitterness, but tastes kind of watered down.

Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours orange gold with a frothy off-white head. Strong citrus in the aroma. Med body. Flavor is roast malt behind a decent amount of citrus hop -maybe some citrus rind. Flavors are pretty mild, but they are good. A light beer with a lot of flavor.

Big fan of Alaskan beers. Great hoppy aroma. Light enough for summer. Fantastic finish.

This is new to the Valley, so I grabbed a single bottle last week at Total Wine & More. Not a big fan of Alaskan beers, but this one was great. It had a REALLY hoppy aroma, and a nice smooth hop flavor. This is a very well balanced beer. Nice lasting finish, too. Well done, Alaskan!
