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.

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 doesn’t hide it. good fruit and manure character, quite fresh.
Nice beer, well drinkable.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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

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.

Nice, clean IPA with hop bitterness and aroma levels akin too many American pale ales or an east coast IPA. Hop aroma is citrusy with hints of flowers, very easy on palate. Moderately dry with light maltiness, easy to drink several.

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.

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.

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.

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 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours hazy yellow-orange with a fluffy white everlasting head. Bright hop aroma - citrus, grapefruit, pine. Flavor is semi-sweet, fruity hops pleasantly balanced with a little bit of caramel and cereal malt. Mildly bitter finish comes with some sweetness as well. Overall a drinkable, nicely balanced IPA with enough flavor that I like to have a can or pint often.
