3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
At Capital Brew fest.
This was poured into a mini snifter.
The appearance was a fairly nice looking hazy somewhat golden orange color with a slim dancing lacing around the glass.
The smell was a nice grassy orange to light grapefruity conglomeration of sorts to lead to a nice dry piney - ness of sorts.
The taste followed the nose very well.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was there and slightly sharp but not overbearing. Still, there was a nice bitter sharpness coming over my tongue as an expecting AIPA should be.
Overall, pretty good AIPA that I know I would down again if I could get it on a regular basis. I certainly hope Broken Tooth is reading this.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted from draft. Pours a clear light amber with white head. Aroma is piney hops and a little floral notes. Taste is pine, floral, grapefruit, a little orange with a nice caramel sweet malt backbone. Medium bodied. Pretty solid IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft pint. Slightly hazy golden orange with a big whitish head and great lacing. Crisp aroma of citrus and pine, particularly tangerine. Flavor has sugary malt balanced by assertive hop bitterness. Well-balanced. Medium-bodied, lively carbonation and good drinkability. Gotta love Alaska. Lots of good ticks here.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Draught) cloudy, pulpy bright orange beer with wispy head on top. Nose of bright orange/citrus/honey notes, pine and grapefruit have a lesser role here too. Spicy note on the nose also. Taste is sharply bitter but not overly palate crushing. Orange peel, grapefruit zest, orange pulp, a bit malty which matches the bitterness. Very drinkable IPA wit HUGE hop flavor. A hop lover’s dream but I’m only half way there.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler pour, creamy white head over orange amber beer. Aroma of hops and light malt, spring spruce tips, pineapple. Flavor is grapefruit rind bitter, lemon, malt, faint spruce, and more grapefruit rind bitter. Palate is smooth and rich, with perfect, fine carbonation. Lacing is ridiculous, clinging from the top to the bottom.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a nice IPA w/ a light, creamy texture. The nose is pretty mild but fresh and hoppy. This is a little sweet but only very slightly sticky w/ firm hops to balance.

Another fantastic Alaskan IPA. This one is a little more complex than the average here, yet maintains a good balance.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at 229 in our way to Denali... Pours a slightly transparent orange hue, fairly consistent throughout, and topped with a thin film of soapy white head... Orangey citrus nose, lightly sweet with an adequate malt balance... Assertive with a citrus hop focus upfront, sweeter middle than the Denali ipa, caramel malt backing with a very light bitterness. Medium bodied with a normal level of carbonation. Not bad but also not too unique. Drinkable.
