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 majestyís 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 youíve been thirsty for.

Draught at Alaska Lodge (Sea-Tac Airport)
Hazy golden color with creamy head. The hop aroma is well present, fruity and lightly animal. Lean body; the malt flavor is good and delicate, a good background for the powerful hopping as it doesnít hide it. good fruit and manure character, quite fresh.
Nice beer, well drinkable.

5000 (6178) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 24, 2013
Can:   Pale golden, light carbonation, moderate to large foamy white head, nice lacing.   Citrusy nose, pith and peel, slight tea leaves.   Similar on the tongue, not overly bitter, faint citrus peel and pith.   Not all that bitter, unlike what the nose suggests.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Tea leaves and citrus pith on the finish.   Smells a bit more vibrant than it comes across.   Decent little IPA tho, despite not being all that hoppy.

after4ever (6055) - 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. Itís not quite a world-beater in its current form, but itís pleasant and easy-drinking.

jgb9348 (4625) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 11, 2011
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 youíd expect from an operation this size, but nothing bad at all. Definitely worth trying and Iím happy I sampled this beer here! I sampled this pint on draught at the brewpub in Talkeetna, Alaska on 26-June-2010.

Aubrey (3430) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - AUG 29, 2011
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 itís a solid and tasty IPA.

On tap at the source... Pours a hazy apple cider hue and topped with a thin soapy white head... Aroma of pale grain and citrus as well as grass... Flavors are crisp citrus with light bitter grass. Just shy of medium bodied with adequate carbonation. Pretty standard but nicely executed. Iíd drink it again.
