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.

Bottle from a local grocery store. Pours a yellow color and smelled of herbal hop. Lots of hop with not much of a malt balance. Little off on the palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

thegreenrooster (3269) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 25, 2014
Pour is a hazy copper with a large white head. Aroma is a nice spicy hop with an equally nice caramel malt. Flavor is pretty much the same. Decent hop mouthfeel off the get go then comes a nice rich caramel malt. Not a hop bomb by a long stretch but this was a fine IPA.

WisconsinBeer (710) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - NOV 25, 2014
Bottle. Slightly hazy pale yellow color. Diminishing head, nice lacing on the glass. Malt profile is mild, hops profile is clean and crisp, primarily floral and citrus. Finishes on a nice bright fruity note. A nice clean drinking IPA.

Obfuscate (66) - Minneapolis, - NOV 24, 2014
Super easy to drink, very light bitterness, very crisp and refreshing. Get some citrus and hops but not over powering. Not every IPA has to be a huge bitter bomb or have a malty tropical fruit taste, sometimes you want something tasty that goes down smooth without resorting to macro crap. Tastes great at 6.2% almost drinks like an APA or a session IPA with more alcohol. This is the first time I have tried this but would get again. Be a great summer while outside having a few beers IPA.

Palidor19 (2989) - Brandon, Florida, USA - OCT 24, 2014
For an IPA, it's not very hoppy. The bitterness is mild but has a great maltness. More malty than hoppy ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

slowrunner77 (6035) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 15, 2014
"fruity and bitter. a pretty decent effort, but i think itís missing a couple of the hop varieties i like in an IPA. A little bit more of a malty backbone would go a long way in the balance department too. Overall a pretty good beer, but under average for an IPA (one of my favorite styles). "

Pours a copper color with a white foam head. Aroma is pine and citrus. Flavor is the same, with moderate bitterness and some sweetness. Has a light mouthfeel and flavor. Itís ok.
