Sampled at private tasting last June with Ratman. Pours a golden color with amber head and lace. Aroma of powder sugar and brown sugar. Flavors of straw hops, bitter roots and sweet malts. Overall a bit odd but decent.

This has a very bright orange color, is very clear and boasts a very bright white head. It has a fresh, hoppy and piney aroma and a flavor that seemed to me to be light on malts and mostly hops - almost imbalanced - with barely enough body to deliver its payload of hops. Nicely done, Alaskan. I’m actually kinda impressed.

Huge thanks to rayl101 for sending this my way from the NHC. Clear amber pour with nice frothy white head. Good bit of lace. Rich aroma full of citrusy hops and a decent caramel kick. Flavors consisted of lemon peel, bitter grapefruit, some orange and a nice caramel presence. A bit sweet for my taste but rather drinkable. Mouthfeel and carbonation were perfect. Bittersweet finish, just a bit too much caramel.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance was clear orangish gold with diminishing creamy white 1 finger head, spotty lace. Aromas are mild malty backbone with soft spicey piney citrus hops, no alcohol present. Taste was spicey, grapefruit, piney hops are mild(english style), sweet malty backbone. Palate was soft smooth CO2 with meduim body, then spicey citrusy average length finish. Good but thin...

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Growler from Labodega. Clear amber with a thick, off white head. Aroma is sweet caramel, citrus peel, butterscotch, and honey. Flavor is sweet caramel malt mostly with a medium to low hop bitterness, mild alcohol warming. Medium body with a syrupy mouth feel. This is too sweet for my liking, but still an alright beer.
