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.

jgb9348 (4893) - 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 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.

SHIG (3703) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - MAY 19, 2013
Draft: Poured a golden to light orange with a white head. Aroma was mild hops. Taste was nice fresh with hops forward and nice balanced malts.

Aubrey (3454) - 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 it’s a solid and tasty IPA.

SlovakSniper (3387) - 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.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 12, 2013
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. I’d drink it again.

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.

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.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - SEP 7, 2009
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.

Bulk_Carrier (2309) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - MAR 17, 2014
The appearance has a hazy golden yellow/orange body with a one finger white foamy head that dies almost immediately, lotsa foamy clingy white lacing all over the place in no sort of pattern (all 6 cans were this way). The smell has strong dank but piney hops barreling through barely letting any other sort of smell come out (all 6 cans were this way). The taste has some strong bitter hops in all 6 cans, mellow maltiness comes just a tad, light citrus aftertaste, dry bitter finish. On the palate, it sits about a light to medium, sessionable, and carbonation is just right for the style and for me. Overall, this is a very well done AIPA that I would have again and also am looking to try more offerings from this brewery, I’ll gladly look forward to sending some of this East to see what my East coast friends think
