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.

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.

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.

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.

Draft at the brewhouse in downtown Anchorage. Pours a foggy deep orange color with a thin head. Light, citrusy aroma with a sense of hops. Not much in the flavor. Some hops. But the balance is off. This needs some work.
