COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When it was discovered that hops not only added bitterness and aroma to beer, but made it last longer too, British brewers created the IPA style to survive the long voyage to India, where her majesty’s thirsty troops awaited unspoiled ale. Twister Creek IPA combines the finest Pacific Northwest and British hops atop a foundation malty enough to balance its 71 IBUs. High octane, full-flavored, well-balanced. This is the beer you’ve been thirsty for.

12 Oz can pour. Pours a light, cloudy golden color with an immediate blast of hops on the aroma. You can smell the hops in this from across the room. Mild on the bitterness, and delicious hop flavor all throughout. Solid IPA.

Frozer (147) - Illinois, USA - OCT 16, 2014
Poured from can into pint glass. Great aroma is detected right when pouring begins. Delicious citrus smell. Spicy hop hits the taste buds. Balanced nicely. Sessionable with a smooth finish.

Oakes (12788) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 22, 2014
Hazy light blonde. Thin head. Fresh limey, overripe fruit character. Light bready pale malt character, and finishing with a touch of bready/tannic.

"Well balanced with caramel and a touch of bready malt, but definitely hop forward and fresh. 55/38 at RB and I can’t for the life of me see why. This bee used that variety of hop that while sweet, has a slight onion and garlic twang to it, and it’s really hitting the spot. Citrus and pine flavors in there too. Drinks big for 6.5%

brokensail (11528) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 7, 2014
On tap @ Alaska Lodge (SEA-TAC). Golden colored beer with white foam. Nose is kind of citrusy, but a weird wet bread, musty malt aroma. Some pine, earth, and flowers as well. Flavor is a bit on the sweet side. A lot of bread and toasted grain. Some orange, a hint of grapefruit, and earthy bitterness. Lightly floral and piney.

SlovakSniper (3347) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 11, 2014
Merci à Yan pour la canette. Une bière dorée. Une petite tête mousseuse. Un nez de fleurs citronnées et d’herbes poivrées. Une présence maltée pâle et mielleuse. Un goût floral et résineux avec une présence de fruits acidulés. Un effacement partiel des malts. Un corps moyen avec un pétillement normal et une texture légèrement huileuse. Une finale bien amère qui témoigne de sa belle fraîcheur. Facile à boire. Une IPA réussie.

Une cannette d’Alaska. Un liquide jaune doré avec une mousse blanche. Un nez franc de houblon et d’agrumes. Une bouche amère, forte et puissante. Une bière réussie. En beau cadeau de boul.

EdInSaltLake (672) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Herbal, citrus hops, and light biscuit aroma. Herbal ho flavor; pepper, a little fruit. Pretty dry biscuit-y malt flavor. Kind of a weird bitter aftertaste. (Seattle Airport)

after4ever (6251) - Brier, Washington, USA - JUN 18, 2014
Draft at SB. Pours a hazy orange-ish medium amber with a dense and creamy off-white head that hangs around for a while. Bright grapefruity nose, both sweet and a bit piercing. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Lightly toasted caramel with grapefruit notes showing. Gets a bit dry at the end, but not acetic or twangy at all. This is another horse in a much-contested race; the semi-resiny, semi-fruity IPA market is a tough one in this area and these guys deserve a shot at the title. It’s not quite a world-beater in its current form, but it’s pleasant and easy-drinking.

On tap at the Alaska Lodge. Clear yellow pour with a white head. Nice malty notes with grapefruit/pine hop notes. Good balance, body, and mouthfeel. Might be a beer that needs to be consumed on tap. Grapefruit hop bouquet.
