A very tasty and appealing American Pale Ale from Alaskan Brewing Company. I would happily have another.

Pours a clear, bright orange with minimal lace. Aroma is of fresh hops and vibrant citrus. Tastes of citrus with strong bitterness at the front end. Overall, this is a very solid, fresh APA.

jbruner (3185) - Athens, Georgia, USA - NOV 21, 2015
Pours a chill hazed golden orange on tap with fluffy off-white head that dissipates to leave good lace. Aroma of citrus hop notes and biscuit malt. Taste follows, clean and crisp, easy drinker. Really nice for what it is.

Nice Hoppy aroma, with slightly darker golden color. Excellent hops with subtle malt flavor. This is currently my #1 favorite drinking beer. (Not a fan of the term "session" beer, It makes beer drinking sound too structured - "my friends and I have scheduled a beer session for 2 weeks from Friday"....) Anyway, this is a great and very drinkable beer - can be a little hard to find in Colorado. One more reason to move to Alaska.

12 Fl. Oz. Can. Poured deep golden in color, clear, abundant off white head, lots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is mostly hops and some malts. Slightly bitter taste with some sweet malty notes. Quite easy to drink, very enjoyable.

Shanebrews (253) - Texas, USA - OCT 23, 2015
This was the best thing in their mix pack. It pours light amber and presents a nose of hops and malt with ample, but not strong, carbonation. The taste is perfectly true to style with a caramel malt base, a bit of sweetness, and a balanced dose of bittering hops. The body is medium and quite sessionable. I would drink this often and it pairs well with many foods.

felsenpils (144) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 20, 2015
12 ounce bottle. Pours a dark golden color. The aroma is of dry hopping. The flavor is the same, nice bitterness and hop nose. I do not often drink this style of beer, but Alaskan has created a very nice APA.

Hazy, light gold pour with a frothy, white head. The aroma has faint citrus and bread. It has a medium body with smooth texture and average carbonation. The taste is bittersweet with a quick, easy finish.
