When introspection fails, it’s time to look outward for inspiration, perhaps Northward! One of the people who inspired me this past year is my friend Gabe Fletcher, of Anchorage Brewing Co. We brewed this beer together. I hope it inspires you. Northward!

Warm regards,

Had on tap at the brewery. Pours a refreshing looking dull orange with an agressive foamy head. Had quite a tart funk smell. A very unique taste. Very peppery. Leaves a hop tingle on the tongue. Paired well with my truffle fries and mussels. Good stuff as usual from this local brewery.

750ml bottle, JP version. Hazy golden straw color with a lacy whIte head and big bubbles. The aroma is funky, citrus/grapefruit, hay, white wine, and pepper. The flavor is decently tart and biting with grapefruit rind. Medium bodied, very lively on the feel. A solid one.

Lilja (2605) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 6, 2016
Ölföreningen 2015. Smak och doft av citrusskal, lime, jäst, jord, citron, apelsin, örter, gräs och toner av grapefrukt. Frisk och syrlig, bra balans, lagom sötma, något pepprig i eftersmaken. Mycket gott!

Vignale (3202) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 20, 2015
Flaska från demolenbeershop drucken med ölföreningen. Snarlik co-lab brygden från Anchorage som var lite mer grapeintensiv och pepprig. Här får man frisk citrus med lätt brettkaraktär och fina ektanniner som ger stramhet och struktur. Örtig, frisk, relativt syrlig. Samarbetet med ANchorage märks men JPs öl ligger inte långt ifrån vare sig stillmässigt eller i kvalité. Smaken är mitt i prick med mina preferenser. Fantastiskt. Men inte riktigt lik bra som Anchorage.

Pours clear gold into a snifter. Bright white head recedes to bubble rim. Oak and lemon aromas. Bright grapefruit and Brett upfront turning back to grapefruit and then back to Brett in the lasting finish.

furthur (846) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - OCT 5, 2015
Bottle, slight gusher, slightly cloudy amber beer, creamy white head, great lace. Aroma honey, spice, kombucha, squash. Taste is kombucha, pineapple, peach, citrus, black pepper. Palate is light, carbonation surprisingly moderate considering the gush. All pumpkin beer should taste like this.

A steady pour into my teku glass produces a fat-two-finger thick, pale tan colored head. The beer is a bright, pale honey color that shows a clear, golden hue when held up to the light. The aroma is quite inviting, with a mix of citrus, tart lactic tartness, earthy spices, earthy oak notes, and an earthy fermentation character. Woody pepper notes, softly toasted oak notes, and light notes of freshly milled oak mixes with grain notes of rustic bread with a thick crackling crust. The aroma is not as complex as I might have first have hoped for, but the balance between the notes that are here really sing.

Lightly tart up front, it picks up a bit more tartness towards the finish as the grapefruit zest accentuates this. The grapefruit is bright in the finish, and there is a bit of pith character that melds with a musty fermentation character, and a bit of earthy phenolics. Soft peppery notes and a lingering woody astringency and light oak flavor are also found in the finish. There is a bitterness to the finish that seems perhaps grapefruit derived, and provides a bitterness that reminds me of hops. The texture has a soft lushness to it that is seems to be a combination of lactic slickness and structured oak, yet is still light and quaffable.

This is a really nice, thoroughly enjoyable beer. The balance that the entirety of this beer is able to achieve is just quite fantastic.
