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.

Glass at the Alaska taproom or whatever at Seatac.

Nice copper color, limited head. Travlr nails it with the floral orange aroma. Resiny pine. Old school and a bit sharp but not unpleasant.

Some light citrus and a lot of big malt backbone. Hazy amber pour with great head and lacing. Light bitter finish with some tang, some peel in finish. Not bad. Tap at Alaska Lodge at SEATAC.

BillKismet (3739) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 1, 2015
Gold body with an okay head. Highly flowery and floral nose with backend ESB bitterness twinges. The body is characterized by a crisp hoppiness, full of green and grassy notes and highly bitter, but it’s a crisp, clean bitterness. Another outstanding bitter-forward hoppy beer from the Great North.

12oz can thanks to AkAndy! Pours a hazy straw color with a huge frothy white head of foam. Aroma of sweet citrus, lemon skins, and bready grain. Taste is a step up from the aroma. Lemon zest, pine, ripe pineapple, grass, and sweet grain. Pretty decent overall! Thanks Andy!
