COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In early 2014 Alaskan re-formulated their IPA as Icy Bay IPA

The very intense, complex aromatic character with a refreshing, crisp finish is achieved by dry hopping. The fruity, citrusy aroma is a nice complement with grilled prawns and spicy foods.

Best by 14FEB12 A: golden, finger of white foam sticks around as a thick quilt. excellent clarity and spotty lace. (4) s: Resiny and piny hops with a lighter malt profile. (3) T: Pine and grapefruit rinds, some resin. soft bittering and sweet, biscuity malt. (3.5) M: medium bodied with moderate carb, semi dry finish. (3) O: better when fresh than elder. Decent IPA. (3) Best by 16DEC11 A: golden with a finger of white soap suds. These fall to a broken sheet of the same. Spotty lace and brilliant clarity. (4) S: Almost a helles like malt profile with sweet wisps of vanilla. Grassy and piny hops over the top. Substandard for nose on an IPA (2) T: Malt is forward and again, a bit sweet. The hops are bitter and grassy with some hints of resin. Simple. (3) M: Thin with hi carb and wet finish. (3) O: A middle of the road IPA. I like to drink it when Iím poor; at $2.50/bomber, itís hard to pass up. (3) Serving type: bottle 12-20-2011

Wittales (718) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - DEC 4, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2013 Appearance was clear gold with diminishing creamy white 1/2 finger head, spotty lacing. Aromas are citrus fruits and slight pale, crystal malts, no alcohol. Taste was mild sweet backbone, tangerine, orange, grapefruit and pine with soft yeasts. Palate was soft smooth tight CO2 with medium body, then soft fruity lasting bitterness. A good mild English style IPA.

12oz bottle pours pale amber color without much head. Mild hop flavors that are more like an APA.

KeefOz (1137) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - NOV 25, 2013
Poured a clear golden amber colour with a one- to two-finger off white foamy head that retained OK and laced well. Carbonation low. Aroma of fresh hops, citrus (lemon, grapefruit) with a trace of sweet caramel malt. Taste with mild hops bitterness, citrus and a trace of malt. Medium body. Crisp, clean, dry, with a long bitter finish.

BeerInHeaven (256) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 22, 2013
pours hazy gold with a thickish off white head. Nice lacing. Aroma is slightly floral and sweet, indescript candy. Taste is crisp and bright. Not particularly bitter or super hoppy, but pleasant. Nice notes of the hops on the finish and nasal linger. A clean, enjoyable brew!

Livendadream (155) - New Mexico, USA - NOV 17, 2013
Btl pours hazy golden color. Nice thick head that hangs around for a while leaving good lace on glass. Faint sweet malt smell with intense tangerine and grapefruit aroma. Lightly sweet malty taste with fresh,crisp,citrusy hop flavor.Light body, thin texture with soft carbonation and mild bitterness. Not quite as balanced as I would like. Decent IPA, but lacks depth in body and in your face hop flavor.

Pours light yellow with a small head. Aroma is citrus and pine. Some floral. Not overly bitter, with hardly any malts making an appearance. Thin on the tongue. A good IPA.

trujahwarrior (509) - Monroe, Washington, USA - NOV 16, 2013
12oz bottle pours a yellowish orange color with a medium white head that leaves decent lacing smells of pine, citrus and resin. Tastes of the same things in the smell. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy with great carbonation. Pretty average west coast ipa. Citrusy and hoppy better on tap.
