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!

Draft at the pub. Had this one from both the keg and the cask, as it also happened to be the cask selection at the time. Both versions were hazy, amber-gold with a thin ring of bubbles. Big nose of grapefruit with some touches of cereal. Flavor is pretty much the same, with some added floral and orange hop notes on the finish. Well-crafted session IPA is softly carbonated and light-medium bodied, with a crisp finish.

Solid beer. On tap at Double Musky, Girdwood, AK. Terrific honey floral aroma with warmth. Nice clear gold color. Good balance and clean finish. Classic West Coast IPA without venturing into hop bomb territory. No complaints.

Tap. Pleasant citrus hop, light malt, and some tropical fruit undertone. Average but quite nice.

mcberko (7814) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 29, 2010
On tap at Bottleworks, pours copper with a small white head. Aroma of hops, biscuit and a little ginger (?). Flavour reveals more of that ginger, coriander, biscuit and hops. Quite different and nice.

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - JUL 28, 2010
On tap: Boston’s Pizza, Fairbanks. Golden yellow pour with off white head. Piney hop aroma with citrus notes. Hoppy pine and citrus in the flavor. Served very cold and a mild stale refrigerator aftertaste. But real good overall.

On cask at the brewery. Pours a hazy amber color with a frothy off-white head. Loaded with citrus and hops in the aroma. Tastes of each with and added note of pepper. Solid.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUN 19, 2010
Tap @ Glacier. Hazy golden/light amber with a small white head. Big citrus, floral hop aroma, light pine. Flavor is smooth hop bitterness with a very light malt presence. Medium to light body with average carbonation and a long dry finish. Excellent IPA, not sweet at all, the malt is there just to hold up the amble hop bitterness. Lots of flavor and aroma hops. Go get a growler of this stuff.
