IslandHaole (1216) - Mililani, Hawaii, USA - OCT 6, 2012
Another of the treasures of the north I found on my recent Alaska trip. Dark copper with a foamy light beige head. Mildly sweet cereal malts, mineral salts (a bit too salty IMO to really enjoy), some bitterness at the end. A bit thin.

Aroma is herbal, earthy and fruity hops, light meal malt and apple esters. Flavor is moderate fruity and floral hops and bitterness, cereal and meal malt with apple esters and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

luttonm (4445) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 16, 2015
Bottle in Seattle, picked up by my brother in AK. Dark clear brown, caramel. Fruity malt aroma, some soft pine. Creamy smooth caramel and amber malt. Solid, but low hop balance.

Ernest (7211) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 7, 2015
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is medium to dark amber. Aroma is lightly malty (caramel, grain), lightly hoppy (apricot), with notes of butter, wort, taffy, plastic, vegetables. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, unclean. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation. Quite poor...lots of off notes (not fully fermented, diacetyl, etc.) and overly sweet and syrupy. Nice apperance but thatís about it.

rondphoto (3747) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JUN 14, 2015
on tap @ Prospectorís / Denai Natíl Park AK --- Clear bright copper color, solid white head cover, thick bands of lace. Taste is caramel malt that grows through the swallow to a finish that has enough hops to balance, but hardly enough to qualify to be called an IPA. Actually, a solid brew, but of questionable heritage.

mcberko (12998) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 17, 2014
22 oz. bottle, pours a hazy orange amber with a small white head. Aroma is over-malted, with residual sugars, caramel malts and some resin. Flavour is muted, with earthy notes, dirty yeasty notes, and a little hops. I wonder what the hell they were going for here. Very mixed up and jumbled. Not a disaster, but not good.

fiulijn (18423) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 17, 2014
Bottle from Haggenís Grocery, Woodinville
Hazy amber color. Caramel aroma and flavor, rather dry, with earthy and tired hops. Is this old? Not good.
