3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
on tap # Glacier / Anchorage AK --- Hazy medium amber color, bright white head cover, thick curtain of lace. Glowing, frothy, great-looking brew. Aroma of citrus. Taste is semi-sweet malt with citrus fruit that is cut on the swallow by clean hops. Meanwhile the malt grows stronger and sweeter as it moves through a balanced, lingering finish. An interesting, solid brew. Recommended.

On tap @ Chuck’s 85th. First time I’ve had a Glacier beer... Pours bright yellow golden with thin white head. Aroma is thin lightly sweet pale malt and just a hint of earthy hops. Taste is clean crisp light pale malt, big earthy bitter hops with mild notes of pine and white pepper. Not a huge IPA by any means, but tasty light malt and big bitter hops.

Muddy. Aroma is very bright, especially with amarillo. A lot of amarillo, touch of mandarin simcoe, the malts are pale and light but muddied by too much yeast.

Draft pour at Taphouse. IPA week. Pours a nice copper color with a very faint hop aroma. Ton of lacing. Floral hop flavor with a small hint of pepper spice. Solid tasting IPA, and definitely a little different. Enjoying this beer

I had this on tap at Hangar on the Wharf. I’m so glad to finally see Glacier Brewhouse beers here in Juneau.
I got this served in a pint glass.
The appearance was a nice murky light brown to orange color with a nice settling one finger white foamy head that ends up leaving a decent amount of somewhat foamy lacing.
The smell was extremely dank and old bitter citrusy hops with an adequate amount of spices thrown in there.
The taste was eerily dank and bitter. There’s no sweetness in this beer. It had a very long bitter aftertaste leaving a very dry finish.
On the palate, it sits about a medium to heavy, interesting for an AIPA, but I’m not too concerned because I’m thinking this brewery intended for this by looking at the color of it. I’m not really finding this to be too sessionable either. The carbonation seems to be there - slightly harsh but just enough to classify it as an AIPA as there is an aspect that tones it down as the beer warms.
Overall, it fits the AIPA style and I like how the ’dankness’ pervades through some of the aspects of this beer. However, its an AIPA that seems to stand by itself as I found one that probably wouldn’t go too well with food.
