A full-bodied deep mahogany ale with ruby red highlights. Citrus notes of chamomile, grapefruit and Meyer lemon brighten the aroma. A zesty array of hop flavors from mango and bitter orange to green mint and hibiscus meld with the nutty, roasted caramel and subtle dried fruit flavors of the complex malt profile to create a surprisingly fresh, yet warming example of the style.

22oz Bottle, Reddish brown pour. Piny grapefruit aromas that blend well, very full, but not overly bold. Great mix of hop flavors and sweet malts, smooth. Finishes with honeys and bitters and some burn from the alcohol. Damn good! Very well balanced and very drinkable.

A good beer. Nice and strong. I sampled it against two others, a Brown, and an IPA. I went with the IPA for the growler.

runaway (76) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 11, 2015
12 oz bomber pours a reddish orange amber color with a dense caramel-cream colored head. Aroma is of pine, grass, caramel toffee. Taste is floral caramel with a piney juniper undertone and a long spicy finish. The alcohol is well balanced and the beer is not too dry or astringent in the finish.

22oz bottle in Seattle. Dark grainy, vinous brown. Small soapy head. Deep caramel and dense pine hop, rich and tasty. Sparkling body, dense caramel and fudge. Hops are dense and alcohol fueled. Rich, lovely tasting beer. Heavy, but a nice treat.

chriszfat (79) - Lake stevens, Washington, USA - AUG 16, 2015
Pours dark amber, almost porter dark, with solid head. Had on tap at the source in Junea on a brewery tour. Starts light and builds on finish which I like. Slightly boozy but wears it well. A good solid amber especially for an imperial which are tricky.

MrBunn (2659) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 14, 2015
Bottle. Pours a reddish gold with a thin head and aromas of caramel, lemon and a little grassy herbal undercurrent. Flavor is big and bold with lots of juicy fruit flavors and a caramel-like backbone from the malt. ABV is a bit warm and this is simply a nice beer after a long day!

SODAK14 (333) - Rapid City, South Dakota, USA - AUG 14, 2015
The 2.4 may be actually on the high side for my rating. Pours a nice red color and downhill after that. Bitter tasting beer that I could barely finish!

mfhennig (275) - McHenry County, Illinois, USA - AUG 1, 2015
One bottle purchased at Sicilianos In Michigan, shoulda bought more! Pours a nice deep reddish brown, off white head. Aroma of citrus and malt. Intense, complex flavors. ABV is well hidden. This is a terrific brew, first I’ve had from Alaskan, hope to find it at Binnys.
