COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Alaskan Imperial IPA is a favorite of the Brew Crew and friends in Alaska, though they may remember it as "ALASKAN XTRATUF® IPA." Rich in color and full in flavor, our Imperial IPA is packed with Pacific Northwest hops over a sturdy malt body and the dry warmth of an imperial strength IPA. First brewed as part of our Rough Draft Series, the Pilot Series release allows us to share this draft favorite of the 49th state on shelves and taps in the lower 48.

BOLTZ7555 (2823) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 11, 2011
Murky copper pour with a small eggshell head that left a spot or two of lacing. Aroma of orange peel and pine accompanied with loads of caramel. Lots of sweetness with the citrus. Candied, almost...like a sugary candied orange wedge. Medium mouthfeel. Good not great.

Bomber thanks to Jeremy. Pours a cloudy copper color with a medium white head. The aroma is sweet citrus and rich malts. The flavor was a tropical fruit forward hop, some biscuit, light pine, very smooth. Nice. Easy to drink.

Bottle, thanks Baker! Hazy, orange amber with a small ring of white lace. Nose is very faint. Some citrus, earth, light pine, some underlying caramel sweetness. Flavor is more dusty malts, sugary sweetness, some light citrus and earth. Soapy, bittersweet finish.

dwyerpg (4579) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 22, 2011
I found this pretty tasty. Has a good solid hop flavor, a nice body, not too bitter. Pretty much just a solid Imperial IPA all the way through.

hopscotch (9258) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 21, 2011
Bottle… Clear dirty orange ale with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. Olfactory highlights are fruity, citrusy hops and earthy pine needles and bark. Full-bodied with a milky texture and soft carbonation. The flavor is malty, citrusy and earthy. It gives a slight nod toward the sweet side of balance – medium roasted sweetness; citric, tannic bitterness. Lengthy, bittersweet finish.

Bottle pours deep amber with an off-white head. Aroma shows notes of citrus, honey, and some underlying floral qualities. Flavor shows the same with additional notes of caramel and pine resin. Overall body is moderate to full and finishes moderately bitter.
