COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In early 2014 Alaskan re-branded 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.

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 (478) - 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.

Pours very light yellow with minimal light head. Aroma of citrus, grapefruit, and light pine. Taste is moderately sweet and balanced with bitter notes. Oily finish with a weak body. Decent

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

stevoj (1704) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 20, 2013
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.

DTM (780) - Winters, California, USA - OCT 18, 2013
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

maltman53 (197) - Corrales, New Mexico, USA - SEP 23, 2013
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.
