Pint pour at stizmark, alyeska ski resort, Alaska. Murky orange pour, thin white head. Aroma is citrus hops, some grapefruit and spices with fruits and a bit floral. Flavor is nice bitter hops with decent fruits and a nice malty backbone. Pretty good.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at brewery: Bright and deep golden. Very aromatic and inviting nose. Solid malt backbone. Super fruity and floral hops. Bold bitterness. Other notes of citrus (grapefruit mostly), grass, plant stems and perfume. Bitterness in the aftertaste is slightly astringent -- my only real complaint. But aside from that it’s a solid and tasty IPA.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Copper glowing body with a very thin off-white head. Lightish hop aroma with a nice slightly fruity nose. Medium-bodied; Fairly typical brewpub IPA with some bitter notes, a relatively good balance of malt and hops and a fairly bitter hop finish. A typical beer that you’d expect from an operation this size, but nothing bad at all. Definitely worth trying and I’m happy I sampled this beer here! I sampled this pint on draught at the brewpub in Talkeetna, Alaska on 26-June-2010.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2013 Update, they’ve changed the recipe on this one for the better. Lighter grain bill, fresh PacNW hops and well attenuated. Way better.
On tap @ Cafe Amsterdam. An English style IPA. Hazy rusty in color with a dense off white head. Sugary sweet aroma with some light herbal hop aroma. The flavor is very sweet and malty with just a touch of bitterness. Medium body with a syrupy mouth feel. Seems a bit sweet to me, got a little hard to drink at the end of the pint.
