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.

From tap at Stone Bistro. Pours golden yellow with a white head. Peachy and grapefruity hops aroma. Smooth and crisp hops flavour of the same. This keeps lingering into a lovely fruity hops finish. Very smooth flavourwise!

Ungstrup (29224) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 20, 2009
Draft. A golden beer with a lazing white head. The aroma is sweet with notes of malt and caramel as well as light notes of hops - my guess is Cascade. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and Cascade hops, leading to a dry, bitter, and grassy finish.

oh6gdx (20299) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 28, 2010
Bottled (thanks Kalevi Kurronen!). Goldeny orange colour with a mediumsized white creamy head which leaves some slight lace. Aroma is fruity and floral hops along with ome sap, caramel malts as well as quite grassy and bready notes. Flavour is quite much the same along with some mild herbal notes. Quite fruity and floral hoppy finish. Nothing mindblowing, but a pleasantly balanced mellow IPA.

Hazy light amber color. Aroma of refined cane sugar, light puke. Easy flavor, some caramel, dry mouthfeel, light paper feeling, correct bitterness.
Boring.

Deep blond color. Light hop aroma. Some caramel flavor with light sweetness, some hopping. Unoffensive.
