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.

Dark Amber in color, slight haze with a thin head. Big hops aroma with fruit and floral aroma and flavors. Nice malt makes for a tasty brew. This was a great Double IPA.

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.

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.

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.

My first from Alaskan and a bit disappointing. For a DIPA the aroma was week. What I got was some malt and a touch of metal. It looked good with an amber pour and a lacing head. The flavor was decent with a malt taste up front followed by the hops in the back. Nice after taste that lingered.
