bottle - Pours clear copper with a light tan head. It smells of hops with citrus and resin. The flavor is similar with strong bitterness, citrus, resin, and underlying bready malts. Very good.

Bomber, best before 1/17/16, drunk 11/6/15.
Clear, modestly carbonated amber liquid has a medium-sized light beige head that shows moderate retention.
Pine, citrus, caramel and sourdough in the nose are bolstered somewhat by some less intense notes of lemon, leafy, dank forest and perhaps some herbal character as well....but it still seems like this is just going to be one big C-hop bomb. Alcohol well concealed in the nose, at least, and there are no flaws noted.
To my great surprise, itís not a c-hop bomb. Donít get me wrong, itís still very citrusy with lots of orange rind and white grapefruit, but the pine gets only moderately resinous on the end and before that thereís plentiful herbal, leafy, almost tea oil-like character. Spicy, dank and pretty well-attenuated, it nonetheless has a good amount of dextrinous body, with moderate warming on the end and lots of bitterness lingering. My only worry with my rating is that they were not intentionally making this a more palateable beer and were actually trying to make it a hop/resin bomb and failed. Which would be very sad, but not something I would put past Alaskan...

Skunky aroma! Deep copper color with a white disappearing head. Initial flavor is a rush of sweetness. It seems to me they used sugar to try to balance the bland hop flavor. It balances but doesnít taste too great.

Bottle. Poured clear orange copper color with an average to large frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate complex hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is a good beer that met my expectations.

Draft at Uber, Seattle. Clear, copper-brown. White heavy cream. Mild deep hop, syrupy sip, dense hop, some earthiness. Not my favorite hop palate. Rich, eh.

trevor211 (1585) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 27, 2015
Deep orange pour. Pillowy head. Earthy citrus on the nose. Big fruit and red licorice in the flavor - strange (somehow really good) layer before/over the citrus hops. Fades to dry orange pith. Deep, flavorful, strange. I like....?

sonnycheeba (4874) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 22, 2015
Bomber. Pours clear amber. Aroma is caramel and bready malts, light toast, floral notes, and some tropical fruit. Flavor is very well balanced with nice fruity hop character and a solid malt profile that dries things out and adds a touch of caramel sweetness; smooth, subtle hop notes carry through the finish. Medium body.
