Sorry Alaska,not a good one. The Free IPA is much better plus you get 6. Just a bland beer. VERY DISAPPOINTED

Pours a dark orange. Has a slight orange and tannic taste to it. Seems more like a barley wine. The hop bitterness is there but isnít huge for a double. Solid but not what I was expecting.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 19, 2014
Golden-bronze. Has a light tree fruit hop character and a fair bit if caramel. Little bit chewy, very sweet, touch of diacetyl coming in late. Doesnít really come together, not enough bitterness to manage those malts and the elements arenít clicking.

ABUSEDGOAT (2321) - California, USA - MAY 12, 2014
Clear amber color, moderate head, good lace/retention. Aroma is pine, citrus, grapefruit, light caramel. Medium to light bodied for the style, moderate bitterness, tasty but kind of light for the style.

greenhorn1 (801) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - MAY 10, 2014
Bottle. Pours copper, small head. Aroma is really malty. Flavor is to malty for me, not a true imperial IPA in my opinion. However, there are some good things about it. ABV is well hidden, some pine and citrus notes. Not so much in the finish. Wish it had more bitter bite.

Crash_the_dog (141) - Fairway, Kansas, USA - MAY 8, 2014
Just about perfect west coast IPA. Great piney nose, flavor to match, with a rich golden color with a creamy head. On tap at Palms, perhaps over carbonated here - overly crisp and bubbly, but a minor complaint. Terrific beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Duchammer (49) - Eagle river, Alaska, USA - MAY 4, 2014
Poured a clear copper with an off white head. Citrus hop overpower the nose little hints of hops. Mixture of citrus of hops balanced nicely with malts. Decent double ipa.

pkbites (673) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 28, 2014
Tap @ Cafe Lulu, Milwaukee. Slightly darker amber pour. Pine needles and citrus grapefruit nose. High alcohol content is barely noticable. This is very unbalanced. Almost nothing is tasted except the over abundance of hops. The body and character of the brew is impossible to rate as the hops just overpowers everything else. Whatís with brewers putting a ton of hops into crummy beer and trying to pass it off as "craft" brew. Iím not falling for it. Overall Alaskan Brewing Company has not impressed me with many of their offerings.

TXBadger (1217) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 28, 2014
Pours a darker amber color. Pine, grass, and citrus on the nose; all follow onto the palate, with pine being more dominant. Some malt on the finish, but this is definitely a hop bomb.

akoeninger (396) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 27, 2014
Floral tropical fruit hop aroma. Orange color. Citrus and pine and some candied fruit dominate the taste. Good malt backbone. Well balanced with a good lingering bitterness. Definitely a taste bud killer if you have more than one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
