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.

Iím really surprised by how low this beer is ranking. Itís a really solid ipa, somewhat fruity rather than hoppy, so maybe itís not a traditional ipa, but itís a great beer.

ChainGangGuy (4395) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - DEC 16, 2007
Appearance: Pours a clear, light orange-hued body with a lush, bubby off-white head. Smell: Pleasantly aromatic nose of citrus and soap with a mild addition of caramel malts. Taste: Juicy citrus flavors of lemon and tangerine. Only a faint hint of caramel as not too much maltiness shows up. Thereís a medium bitterness which drops out for a pretty clean, light finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: It could use a bit more of everything, but as it stands itís still a decent, easy drinking light IPA.

Shag (2623) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - DEC 16, 2007
This beer poured an orange color. A faint lemon and pine aroma. The flavor is only somewhat bitter with some lemons and grapefuit showing. This one seemed rather one dimensional and not very complex. Overall a sub par IPA.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 15, 2007
Pours a transparent bright bronze with a thin, stringy-lacing white head. Aroma of slight grainy malts and some lemon citrus hops. Starts lightly sweet and pale malty with some earthy piny bittering hops toward a drier, bittersweet. This needs a bigger, more assertive hop presence, but itís still quite drinkable.

theisti (3270) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - DEC 11, 2007
12 oz. bottle from Albertsonís in Burien, WA. Pour is clear golden with a one inch white head and some lasting carbonation bubbles. Aroma of dirt and some resin pine hops. Not terribly pronounced. Taste is actually not that great. I had hoped for more, but this tastes pretty much like any IPA you would have at a run of the mill brew pub.

mkobes (2141) - paramus, New Jersey, USA - DEC 7, 2007
Bottle at Pt. Loma Seafood. Orange golden in color with a little head. Little hoppy aroma with some soggy cardboard notes. Light citrusy hoppy flavor. Could be a much better beer. Ok tasting.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - NOV 29, 2007
Bottle at Pt Loma Seafood. Orange gold with a small head. The hops have fallen quite a bit and you can also get a bit of soggy cardboard. Athlugh the code seems to say 9/19/07, this been has seen better days. There is a decent citrus to it though along with a scent (chinook?) hoppiness. Iíd love to try this beer fresher.
