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.

Lubiere (10152) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 18, 2011
A hazed blonde IPA with a thin creamy lacing off white head. In aroma, a smooth floral hops, pinhey and restrained, over biscuit malt. In mouth, a nice grassy citrusy hops over caramel malt, light pink grapefruits, not bad. On tap at brewpub, Oct. 9 2011.

jercraigs (7921) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 11, 2008
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.

mcberko (6708) - 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.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 18, 2009
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.

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.

AmEricanbrew (5870) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - OCT 21, 2008
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.

Braudog (5832) - Glenville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2008 On draft and cask, at the brewpub, 7/5.05 and 7/14/05. Rusty orange and active with an orange-citrus aroma. Tart and fruity with an orange-rind sweetness. On cask, there’s little change other than a subtle improvement in creaminess and fuller flavors brought out by the warmer serving. Pretty good.<<Rerated from draft 01/17/2008 ... still a lighter-hued IPA, but this time I’m enjoying this much more ... crisp citrus fruitiness makes this a poster child for the American style>>

mabel (5805) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 15, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 11, 2008 [1644-2008901] Tap. Grassy hops aroma has a slash of lemon pips. Clear, orange brown body with a medium-lasting foamy white head and a bit of lacing. Bit of lemon yeast and grains in the flavour. Medium body has a bite. Really nice IPA, repeatable. (7/4/8/3/15) 3.7
(@ Steamers; Ketchikan, AK)

[1662B-20080906] Cask. Fresh evergreen pine resin aroma with strong lemon accents. Clear, orange amber body with a medium-lasting bubbly white head. More fresh evergreen pine resin and more citrus in the flavour. Bitter medium body. A nice IPA. (8/3/8/3/16) 3.8

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - APR 3, 2008
Tap at Brouwers. A nice aroma of citrus, and herbal cat pee/weed. Pours a hazy golden tone with a great fluffy lasting head. Nice moderate hop profile with floral, citrus, and weed flavors accompanied by some light caramel malt to add some sense of balance. A nice IPA.
