COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Much of the history of Hopothermia is lost to the mists of time. We know that the windswept lone brewer dreamt of a Double IPA so bold and packed full of hop flavor that it could keep the wild wolves from the door of his remote cabin. We know he was able to converse with the creatures of the woods—except for the bears who slept through the cold winter, and the mink, who were just really super rude. And we know he skillfully crafted a beer that became the stuff of legend.

There are strange brews made where glaciers cascade
By the brewers who know no bounds.
For they stuff in the hops ’til the temperature drops
And then call for a few more rounds.
In Alaska, it seems, every brewer dreams
of a bold Double IPA.
Hopothermia’s the beer, in the Last Frontier
That will keep the wild wolves at bay.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2014 Awesome double ipa, on tap at the LA beer festival, 8.5% so not too intense, thanks Chris, golden pour, frothy white head, hoppy aromas, citrus and piney finish.

Bottle. Pours a deep orange with a thin head. Moderate malts, medium body. Hops are herbal and pine like, and seem to be balanced nicely with the overall brew. Finish is somewhat sweet. A respectable offering.

Matt_ducharme (2) - Massachusetts, USA - APR 5, 2014 does not count
Poured into wine glass, beautiful copper color with amazing clarity. Small ebony head with pretty good retention and moderate lacing. Wonderful grapefruit, tangerine, piny aroma. Not much malt character showing through but not overly bitter, finishes a little dry. Nice drinkable dipa.

Poured from 12oz bottle, pours a clear burnt orange with a soapy off white head, aroma has a nice citrus touch with a little bit of dank resin as well, still smells pretty light and enjoyable though, the flavor has a piney front end with a good amount of fruit and citrus in the finish, abv is pretty well hidden through out, lighter mouthfeel, really not bad at all.

Juicy! Not like it has juice in it, more like it is juice. Hop juice, I guess. Fresh squeezed. Mostly pine and citrus.

Location: Draft at BRC, 4/1/14

Aroma: It has a resiny aroma, with some pine, and caramel notes
Appearance: Murky dark orange pour, with a white head, and a rather coating lace
Flavor: The taste is very much the same, with resiny hops, pine, and a mild caramel sweetness
Palate: This one has a medium-full body, with a soft carbonation, and a really nice mouthfeel
Overall Impression: I liked this one. It was a really nice DIPA, but even moreso, it had a great pour and a great feel. It probably won’t live up to other beers I have given a 4.2, but I just couldn’t think of reasons to go under a 5 on appearance or palate.

Good start with a very nice hop aroma but the flavor was not there, a good beer but overhyped

Crystal clear copper pour. Small white head. This is a citrus, pine, floral nicely bitter beer. Has a sweet malt presence, and a rather light body. Solid DIPA, but not amazing.

Son let me just explain this beer. Big citrus blast upon opening, big citrus and pine ripe tropical fruit taste. Dry as hell. Malty balance. Just punches you in the mouth in the best way. This are insane good and for 8.5% abc you can’t even tell. Exceptional beer. Drink tons of these.

3/26/2014. From bottle. Amber color with a white head. Fresh hoppy aromas with pine, caramel and citrus. Good balance and very nice flavors throughout. Bitter finish and definitely one I’d drink again.
