Ibrew2or3 (7312) - 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.

Ughsmash (7276) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 5, 2014
Bottled. Poured clear, medium orange with a sticky white head. The aroma picked up juicy oranges and pine resin over seemingly sweet caramel malts.. a touch heavy-handed, but aiight. The flavor found syrupy sweet caramel and bready notes at the core with pine and citrus bitterness plus peppery alcohol around.. finished sharp with a dry bite right at the end. Medium-plus bodied with a slightly bigger feel than it should’ve had.. overall a good beer with some rough edges.

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.

marcus (7183) - 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.

douglas88 (6812) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 12, 2014
On tap at Belmont. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head. A light fruity nose, oranges. The flavor is medium resin, low to medium bitterness, oranges, spices, toffee. Good, smooth. Pretty easygoing.

Ferris (6783) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 7, 2014
Bottle - Orange, caramel and boozy heat. Clear gold with a decent beige head. Lots of orange and a bit of medicinal and herbal notes. A bit boozy and just not that great. Huge miss.

swoopjones (6677) - Buffalo, New York, USA - SEP 2, 2013
Plastic growler via let’s pour. Copper orange pour. Long story. It this should of been consumed earlier. Still retained a nice body, decent. Arbonation. Orange pine notes. Caramel maltiness. Nice flavor, booziness was kept on line. Nice beer

slowrunner77 (6578) - Reno, Nevada, USA - APR 4, 2015
not a bad price for the style but still more than a normal 6-pack beer without being any better. Crisp hoppy aroma but also a little biscuit, which I don’t like. I’d say above average beer, below average IIPA.

after4ever (6500) - 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.
