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.

This is a decent ipa, a bit more piney hops aroma & flavor than some other ipa’s, but I’ll buy it again

Nice, crisp, tart IPA. Hazy golden with thick creamy head. Aroma of yellow grapefruit. Taste is citrus hops, and hops linger on the palate. This is a classic IPA , all about the hops.

Bottle from a local grocery store. Pours a yellow color and smelled of herbal hop. Lots of hop with not much of a malt balance. Little off on the palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours golden color, stale, cardboardy nose, hops absent on the nose and palate, finishes tired. Will try again as this bottle must have been heated in transit.

355 ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden with a short lived white head. Aroma is hops, citrus, herbal. Flavor is grains, fruity. Finish has a good hoppy punch, mostly citrus-flavored (grapefruit). Very fruity, overall, with a nice herbal touch at the end. Some earthy quality in there, too. Medium body, average carbonation. Complex bitterness IPA with a good drinkability.
