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.

presario (4596) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 27, 2008
Bottle. Beautiful gold with thick head which leaves an artistic inch of lace around the glass. That is the aroma I associate with IPAs. Strong citrus. Not overpowering, just perfect for the style. Powerful but restrained hop taste. Lots of delicious citrus taste. I love hops and for brewers it is easy to keep adding them but there is something enticing about hitting a clear note.

Alaskan IPA has a thin, white head and a semi-clear, golden appearance, with some streaming bubbles and minimal lacing. The aroma is of grapefruit and sweet, white bread. Taste is the same, with maybe some pith and pine oil. Bitterness is strong, but not overwhelmingly so. Mouthfeel is medium and oily, and Alaskan IPA finishes fairly dry, refreshing, and quite drinkable. Overall, this is considerably nice, and I score it as being most excellent. RJT

Clear golden pour. Fizzing head bubbles the resin and floral aroma into your face. The crisp, clean finish compliments its dry citrus taste. Tried in Juneau on tap at the waterfront. (3/23/2011) At 4 IGERT workshop.

Copper to orange pour with a berry small off white head. Piney hops aroma and taste. I will drink this when ever available

maxwelldeux (3500) - Everett, Washington, USA - JUN 9, 2013
Bottle. Pours a very clear dark golden color with a moderate white head on it. Nose is fairly hoppy, with some great floral and piney notes to it. Taste is actually really well balanced, with some slight bitterness to it, and a hint of sweetness up front. Very nice IPA...

UPDATED: MAY 23, 2007 My oh my, this is good stuff, and mighty tasty! I tried to figure out the taste for an hour before finding this site! It does definitely have that grapefruit and pine taste and caramel smell to it; and --- it’s gosh darn good!

12 oz bottle. As far as IPAs go, this is very standard. Thereís nothing special about this, nothing experimental, bold, or risky; itís just an excellent example of the style. Very basic but very good.
