2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is medium to dark yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain), moderately hoppy (resin, grapefruit/kumquat), with a light note of plastic. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic, lightly to moderately astringent.
A pretty sour example, though I would not say this is infected...low pH water maybe. Simple raw hop odor, touch of plastic. Fairly average.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: floral hops, some grass. Appearance: clear gold, small, creamy head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: bitters intensify, floral hops, soft carbonation, turns very dry and bitter in the finish. Overall: OK IPA, wasn’t quite as nice as expected from other reviews, english-style IPA. Pint at Moose Tooth Pub & Pizzeria Anchorage.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
on tap @ Humpy’s / Anchorage AK --- Clear golden amber color, white head cover, a couple of lace strings. Taste is somewhat thin malt that moves directly to the swallow, adding light European hops to achieve balance. A nice, light, Ale, but hardly enough "hair on it’s chest" to qualify as an IPA.

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.
