2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy amber with a one inch white head. Appearance would be rated higher but there is something oily about it that looks unappetizing. Aroma is pleasant but uneventful: light caramel, light citrus, no yeast (or at least very hard to describe). Taste is fairly balanced with a nod towards sour/biter. Medium body with an unpleasant thin, oily feel. Unwelcome astringent, bitter finish. Will not buy again.

NW pale ale with new age Citra addition to classic Cascade and Centennial hops. Despite snowboarder on label, a nice summer respite from runoff of IPA’s still flooding market. Sours certainly seem to be chinking away at this homogeneous wave in craft beer resurgence this season as well. Also, since when can we have sports on beer labels? Was that not the whole issue with Alpine Extreme http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/paulaner-bavarian-alp making that such a rare find, esp with Texas “Malt Liquor” designation stamped on already rare label? Oh, damn, snowboarder was perhaps the old label found online, this one has a cyclist trekking on frozen water next to wall of ice, slowly creeping through time with immense energy eventually carving Deap Vallys grooves into the continent. Flown over the glaciers that perhaps found way into a batch of this en route to Asia. Clarity would almost make someone who regularly works 80 hour weeks impressed. Spans taste of classic NW pale and modern trend in new flavor discoveries. Leaves lace on glass the level of Vegas bachelor party after good intending attendee doing part by cleaning some of the lingerie before succumbing to out of element amphetamine come down sleep.

12oz bottle. Very dry APA. Not the best I’ve had from Alaskan, but a decent beer none the less. Would probably get again.
