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.

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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
[Tap] Tried this at the brewpub in mid-September. Pours a very light shade of amber with a large white head. Hoppy aroma of pine sap, oranges and grapefruit zest. The hop profile in the flavor is a bit more subdued, but pleasant. Biscuit, floral hop notes, lemon in the taste. Bitter finish. Low carbontion made this seem a little flat. A good IPA that keeps its hoppiness in check.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a 64oz growler flown back from Alaska and given to me by a friend. Poured into a shaker.
Color is a hazy golden orange. Small amount of bright white head that slowly dissipates and leaves good lacing.
Aroma is heavily hoppy. Citrus and grassy. Also slightly fruity. Mandarin orange or apricot.
Taste is heavily bitter. Lightly sweet and lightly sour on the aftertaste.
Medium to almost full bodied, it has a oily and slick texture. Soft carbonation and a long bitter finish.
Overall, it’s a pretty damn good beer. This would be perfect with a big plate of BBQ and a side of tater salad. If I ever make it up to Alaska, I’ll definitly have to stop in this place and try it again. Good thing I still have 50oz of goodness left in the growler!
