Amber in color, clear with a thin head. Big hops aroma and light malt. Big hops flavor with a silky smooth malt backing. Lots of fruit like hops flavors in the brew. Very tasty IPA.

Oakes (12743) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 20, 2014
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.

Gold pour with creamy white head and lace. Aroma is light caramel malt and a touch of citrus. Flavor mirrors aroma with a solid citrus bitter. Medium light bodied with good carbonation.

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.

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

On tap at the brewery, Anchorage, AK. Pours hazy, deep golden with long lasting, foamy, white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of citrusy hops, bready malt, orange marmalade and ripe fruit. Body is full and crisp. Taste is similar to aroma. Finish is long and hoppy. Well made IPA.

Frank (2935) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 28, 2013
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.
