Choppy and acidic. Lots of pith and sharp citrus rind. There is also a massive sweetness and booziness. Its large.

Ibrew2or3 (6760) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 18, 2014
Pours up at AZ Strong Ale Fest 2014 with a crystal clear copper body that has thick pervasive golden hues and supports a nice looking light tan head. The aroma offers sweet dark fruity esters as well as malt sweetened citrus to slightly mango fruitiness. The taste begins with cherry to blueberry to brown sugar covered raisin like fruity esters that seem pretty far out of place. Behind the esters I get malt sweetened mango and clementine like hop flavor notes and really no hop bitterness at all. Overall this is just too sweet and estery with no bitterness at all.

bb (6715) - Alamo, California, USA - APR 16, 2013
Draft. Amber beer with a cream head. Grapefruit and light summer fruit aroma. Earth and summer fruit flavor with light grapefruit. Medium bodied. Good bitterness. Summer fruit and earth linger with light grapefruit and light pine.

deyholla (6481) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Sampled at the 2014 Untapped festival in Fort Worth. Pours a clear gold with a slight amber hue and tan head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has a lot of bitter pine and resin with backing notes of grass and grain. Flavor has a nice combination of bitter, resin, sweet grains and grass.

marcus (6300) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 2, 2013
On tap at Capital Beerfest. Pours cloudy golden with a nice beige head and a citrus aroma. There is a hearty caramel malt flavor with a tasty hop profile.

5000 (6178) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 3, 2014
Bottle:   Fiery amber, copper hues, translucent with light carbonation, moderate frothy white head, nice lacing.   Strong piney nose, soft citrus bits follow.   Assertive pine and pith on the tongue, slightly sweet, smooth, finish is light and easy.   Not a strong assertive Double IPA.   Smooth, hoppy, with some nice citrus and piney bits.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Not quite what I would call Double IPA, but perhaps 1¾ IPA.   Finishes light, easy, slightly hoppy, with a little citrus and pine sweetness.   Not a big one by any means, but fairly smooth.

after4ever (6055) - Brier, Washington, USA - NOV 28, 2012
Draft at SB. Pours a clear dark amber with a dense and creamy tan head that definitely sticks around. Nice fresh piney nose with some sweet tangerine undertones behind. Great soft and sweet combination, but shows some forward power. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toast and caramel on the mid palate with bright crisp pine and citrus fruit over that. Clean refreshing finish. So cool to see Alaskan stretching its legs with more new recipes now and then.

arminjewell (5992) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 22, 2014
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, hazy golden-orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of orange, caramel, toffee, hints of grass into a bit of earth, pretty sweet smelling. Taste is a mix of orange, grapefruit, hints of grass into a bit of caramel, toffee, slight spice, finishing bitter. Just ok.

BVery (5924) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - FEB 8, 2013
Tap. Mostly clear reddish amber pour with a frothy white head. Juicy and pine hop. Pretty well balanced and flavorful. Nice brew.
