Draft at brewpub. Hazy golden with foamy white head. Biscuit, orange, grapefuit, honey, with a nice amount of pilth. Ice tea malt, saltine cracker, sticky resinous citra hop. Light body and feel with balanced flavor...the nose is more inspirng than the flavor. Way better that the iipa.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught @ Brouwer’s Café:   Pure golden, fairly clear, moderate white foamy head, spastic lacing, mild carbonation.   Soft sweet citrusy, piney and hop nose.   Underlying malts are even softer.   Good nose.   Flavor is much the same, a little less sweet than the nose suggests.   More hop bite.   Decent malt background.   Not a big IPA, but clean with a good hop bite and adequate sweetness.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Could be a bit bublier on the tongue.   Feels a little flat.   Otherwise very easy to drink.   Almost more like a Pale Ale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Enjoyed from cask Aug. 2008 (old notes).
Pale amber, some haze, with generous white head. Nose and palate I found some dry peach pit, some grapefruit, and was very drinkable for an IPA on cask. Nothing spectacular in terms of flavor profile or nose, just a light accompaniment to my entree.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Brouwer’s. Wow, what an awesome little surprise this was tonight. Didn’t even know they were pouring it, and it’s a delectable little Simcoe bomb ready to ambush the unwary. Pours crystal clear coppery medium amber with a thinnish, off-white, creamy head. Huge floral bouquet of mango, tangerine, and pineapple. Just a tropical fruit conflagration. Creamy medium body, well-placed carb for body but not for fizz or effect or anything like that. Clean and refreshing. A little bit of graham crackery malt under the wash of tropical fruits, but this one is really about the fruits. They tail off into a nice gooey, rind-y bitterness near the end. Maybe a tad overly sweet in spots, but, otherwise, this is a buy-by-the-keg IPA to serve at BBQs or that second house you might’ve bought if you hadn’t spent all your damn money on fancy beer.

Deep straw body with a dense white three finger head. Light sweetness on the grainy malt backbone with some subtle bready accents. Moderate floral hop notes that were accompanied by light pine, grass, and grapefruit pieces. Nice drink.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Faint on aroma, like a subtle blond ale. Clear bright gold, aggressive head. Soft, creamy body, bittering hops creep in the end gently. Seems like this keg may have been off when I look at these other ratings.

Hazy orange amber with a white head. Nice medium strong piney and grapefruit hop aromas. Medium body. Nice hoppy floral and citrus flavors on a mildly sweet caramel malt base. A very drinkable, nicely balanced IPA. My favorite of Glaciers offerings.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
2008-09-01. Orange amber boy with a small white head and lacing. (3+) Aroma is on the modest side, pleasant hops, resin and a touch of citrus (7+). Flavour is hop forward, pleasant bitterness takes on just a touch of astringent citrus sed prior to a pleasant tangerine like citrus note. Average palate. Pretty solid IPA. Not overly assertive but rather nice. 7/4/8/3/16 - 3.8 On tap at Steamers, Ketchikan
2008-09-06. Crisp orange body with a smallish white head and lacings is actually less hazy than the draft sample. (3+) Big hoppy aroma of resin and orange citrus (8+) carries over to the flavour where rich green hops strike a keen balance between assertive resin and pervasive sweet citrus notes. (8+) Average palate is lightly carbonated, but excellent for a cask. (3+) Wow! Probably my favorite beer of my Alaska trip so far. 8/3/8+/3/18 - 4.0 On cask at the brewpub.
