3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

Nice golden copper color with a very nice mouthfeel
not super aggressive, rather balanced, but it does have a bitter finish.

Nice, fresh tasting IPA. It has a nice piny, citrus nose and is a bit sweet with firm bitterness in the finish. A good, clean and hop centric brew.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Taphouse Grill in Seattle. Colour...clear amber with a moderately thick off white head. Nose...citrusy with a lean towards the grapefruity side. Palate...moderate CO2, a quick shot of grapefruit rind and pith and then a bit of malt that balances things out quite nicely. There’s some biscuit here and some marmalade as well. Generally a well balanced IPA.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very hazy golden copper coloured body with large bubbles (pulled) and some small bubbles rising rapidly from the bottom. Aroma of fresh grapefruit and piney hops - very nice, especially on cask. Medium-bodied; Chewy citrus and hop flavours at first. A nice mellow aftertaste of malt, caramel and a lot of hop bitterness is also there - nice! Overall, a good start to beers at Glacier and a solid IPA, especially on cask! I sampled this pint on draught/cask at the brewpub in Anchorage, Alaska on 26-June-2010.
