COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
You will experience a hop symphony when drinking King Street’s IPA. A pronounced but pleasant tangerine and passion fruit aroma opens the door for a complex mix of orange, grapefruit, floral and spicy flavors that come in waves. This beer finishes clean and its medium body leaves you ready to enjoy another.

Amazing IPA when fresh at the brewery. Sadly these guys don’t "travel" real well.

On tap at Humpy’s. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a nice looking hazy orange to brown color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving some light lacing roaming here and there. The smell had a good sticky citrus bitterness to it. Light piney - ness enters in as it warmed. The taste was basically the same as the smell. Light sweet piney aftertaste lead to a dry sweet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was good for me and for the style. Overall, I say this was a pretty good AIPA that I could do again.

Good looking beer but not much flavor. Interesting can design, the whole top comes off so its like drinking out of a glass.

I had this on tap at the Rustic Goat. I was looking forward to having an ipa and this beer was one of my choices. It poured a nice mild copper with a lingering ivory head. Nice citrus combination of hops with mild malty notes. Very well balanced beer and nice sweet malty finish. Very refreshing beer well carbonated! Rustic goat presented this beer awesomly and I think this is one my favorite beers from king st.

Rich amber and copper coloured body with a frothy, five centimetre tall head. NOTE that upon opening the can, it exploded and beer went everywhere, and I probably lost 2 cL or so - I think this happened with my last King Street can as well, so probably common. Aroma of bright floral and grapefruity smells with some alcohol, malt and a hint of sugars noticeable. Medium-bodied; Assertive hoppy flavour with some spices, flowers and quite a bit of grassy flavours, all with a definite yeast kick and some pineapple sweetness on the back end. Aftertaste shows a good blend of hops and malt, all with a nice earthy and sweet finish, good complexity throughout. Overall, aside from an exploding can when opened, a great beer and well worth bringing back home with you! I sampled this 12 ounce can purchased from La Bodega in Anchorage, Alaska on 04-October-2013 for US$1.70 sampled at home in Washington on the other end of this fine country on 05-March-2014.

Growler pour. Crisp white head over golden yellow beer, moderate lacing. Aroma is lychee, juniper, vanilla, apple. Flavor is apple, bitter hops, lychee. Palate is nice, has some viscosity but the carbonation keeps it crisp. This is better a bit warm, I think. The hops is still predominantly bitter, the fruitiness understated.

SHIG (3934) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - APR 29, 2012
Draft at Tap Root Beer and Mead Social: Poured a hazy yellow to orange with a cream off white head. Aroma is big piney hops, citrus fruits mainly grapefruit, and floral. Taste was very solid bitter piney hops, grapefruit, that was very well balanced with sweet malts and tropic fruit. Leaves the tongue tingling for more.
