2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2014 12 oz bottle from Tipsy?s. Gold and clear with a lacy white head. Aroma is hoppy and bitter with herbs, flowers and spruce. Similar flavor with crisp malts and a lingering bitter finish. Medium body. 2.9. Update: I thought Icy Bay was a little better than their old one, probably around 3.1.

Not impressed, but have no idea how old the bottle is. Wish all breweries would date their bottles. Drinkable as a session ale, but hops are faded.

Aroma is light pine, citrus and a hint of spice/heat. The flavor is light grapefruit, citrus, malts a pretty dry finish. Not bad if a little one-dimensional.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle received in trade from BeerKangaroo, thanks for the opportunity.
Pours a crystal clear deep golden color with a huge bubbly off white head that persists forever. Aromas of caramel and citrus dominate with hints of mineral to round it out. The flavor is a bit of pine, spice, and citrus with a solid bready caramel to back it up. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a slick resinous mineral mouthfeel. Nice easy drinker, a bit old school but certainly serviceable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Old rating from ’09. Thanks to ubrewidrink for sending this beer my way! Appears a clear golden yellow color with a lofty off white head that seems to want to stick to the side of the glass. The aroma is hoppy, floral, citrus with a definite malt backbone. The taste is initially slightly bitter then comes some malt and I get a little metallic flavor as well. The mouthfeel is nice on this brew - active carbonation yet smooth. light/medium in body. Overall a pleasing beer in most respects yet the flavor wasn’t all put together in my opinion.

3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Aromatic is an understatement. This brew pops hops and smells like the inside of a brewery. Slightly clear gold, with very little white lacing. Sips medium to full and slightly sweet and citrusy. Orange flavor and nice malt sweetness backing. Finish is slightly Offputting and weak, but a sweet and light ipa that is Sessionable.

I LOVE ALASKAN BEERS!!!! Again the allure of this beer may be swaying my rating, and perhaps the memories of my trip to Alaska as well, but I’ll be damned if I don’t drink this beer and automatically think of the rustic-run down bar I first tried it in with my Grandfather almost 10 years ago. Just great.
