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.

UPDATED: MAY 7, 2014 First score 3.7 Second time liked this a bit more. Had this awhile back and was mostly disappointed. It has a malt character that doesn’t sit quite right for me. The free ride apa I just had is better.

Pours clear light gold with a tall white head. The aroma is largely pine resin with just a touch of honey malt at the end. The flavor is mildly bitter but doesn’t go much of anywhere from there. A bit washy on the tongue.

12 fl oz / 355mL bottle into a pint glass. Served cold. Aroma: Lemony, grapefruit, and some pine. Not a whole lot of hop presence in the aroma. Appearance: Transparent dark yellow, soapy white head. Not a whole lot of lacing. Taste: Lots of pine again, followed by hop bitterness with mild citrus on the finish. Nice flavors, but nothing really stands out. Palate: Not thin or watery, but light. Pretty refreshing. Flavors linger a bit. Overall: Not the best IPA out there by far, but a pretty good one. Not very complex, but refreshing and pleasant.

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

Cantabrian (990) - 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.

jdskinns (220) - South Roxana, Illinois, USA - APR 6, 2013
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.

Serving: from tap at Mick Kelly’s Irish Pub and Restaurant. Aroma: light hoppy. Appearance: small, frothy, off-white initial head, with excellent lacing and mostly diminishing longevity. Clear, flat, medium-yellow body Taste: lightly bitter, hoppy, initial flavor and moderately bitter finish with average duration. Palate: medium body, oily texture, lively carbonation. Overall: very good. Hoppy without being too bitter.

mkel07 (5153) - 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 (5640) - 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
