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.

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.

Pours a light golden light boozy head. Aromas light pine, slight maize, light floral, light grass and medium citrus. Flavors are less than the aromas with light pine and citrus mixed with grass and maizes in the finish. Medium bitter lightly sweet and lightly dry.

Drank in July. Decent IPA that had good hop flavor and was fairly smooth. A little fruity on the nose and palate which was refreshing.

Only ipa I can get at the Omni hotel in Dallas. After having it several times it's grown on me. Not in my top 10 but still decent. Malty with medium hop. Almost a cross between ipa and pa. Can't see the color in the dark bar. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.
