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.

Strong pinetar aroma. Light bodied. Nothing but pine hops flavor. Like drinking a pine tree.

Cantabrian (919) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - APR 7, 2013
I love the aroma of sweet grapes and peaches. Lots of peaches here. The flavour is disappointi ng, as there is hardly any of those fruits behind the bitterness, which is not that massive per se. It is just an empty taste before the bitter finish, and little to say about the palate. Not offensive, for sure, but lacks more complexity and more flavours.

Bottle. Appearance is clear amber with soapy white head that disappears quickly. Aroma is citrus hops. Taste is bitter but not as hoppy as the aroma lets on. Thin body.

mkel07 (4031) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAR 29, 2013
355ml bottle from The Beer Cellar. Pours a bright golden amber colour with a decent sized white foam head. Citrus and floral hops in the aroma are good as is the piney hoppy flavour. Easy to drink and very enjoyable.

Bottle pour - second offering from this brewery I’ve had after the amber. Middle of the road IPA - happy to drink it.

kaser (3791) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 21, 2013
Poured from a bomber i got from letspour.com. Golden/orange and clear appearance. Sticky white head. Not much aroma - a little citrus notes. Taste is average - somewhat boring. Pine, a little floral and bitter, and medium hops for an IPA. Just ok - would have again if offered but wouldn’t seek it out
