The days are long but the season is short. So what gives? Sleep! After doing more before midnight than most Outsiders do in a week, Alaskans deserve some down time. And these moments of relaxation demand more than that ordinary, non-distinct lawn mower beer. Celebrate a day well done with a beer done well—a seriously delicious IPA with some scorchin’ hops.

Our new seasonal double IPA is designed to keep you incredibly hopped up spring through summer.

Are you ready for a MELTDOWN?

Medium sized off white head with good retention and a clingy lace.Murky orange amber hued brew. Nose is melony, fruity, tropical type sorta, hint spicy and mild all around. Body is med/full, lil oily on the palate, hint juicy, lil sticky. Sweeter than expected malt notes, notes of juicy fruit, stone fruits, weird grassy notes. Finish is a bit sweet for me though the bitterness almost does its job. Bomber from furthur.Thanks man!

A bottle that is at least 6 months old. Hazy gold beer, tidy pale cream colour head. Palate is smooth and semi dry. Good fine carbonation. Smooth pale malts, light cream. Good piney hops with lesser citrus and tropical fruits. Still has a good spicy bite to the hops despite the age. Light semi dry finish. Hop spice linger on. Held up very well indeed.

phaleslu (9017) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 14, 2015
22 oz. bottle from a San Diego bottle shop that ships. I can’t think of the name. Not Bine & Vine. Anyway, it pours a clear gold color with a white head that settles into a lasting film. Notes of pineapple, citrus, caramel, fading florals, and resin. The hops are down a bit, it seems, but I did this no favors in letting it sit in the fridge a few months (moving is stressful and things get forgotten). Medium-bodied, with a smooth, resinous mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. For not being super fresh, it holds up nicely.

Aroma: exotic fruits, grapefruit, caramel. Appearance: hazy, pale gold, small, creamy head. Taste: medium sweet. Palate: sweets continue, caramel, ripe fruits, floral hops, bitters coming up, some grass, bitter finish. Overall: excellent IIPA, excellent aroma and palate. Pint at brewery, Anchorage.

Bottle. Dark gold with white head. Tea-like earthy hops. A little fruity sweetness. Full sticky mouthfeel. Ok.

glennmastrange (2588) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - NOV 20, 2014
Bottle. Moderate grain and bread for the malt, light to moderate orange for the hops, light soap for the yeast, with a hint of dried apricot. Head is small, frothy, translucent white, with some spotty lacing and goog laegs and is mostly diminishing. Color is murky medium amber. Flavor starts moderately sweet and acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is medium, slick, with a lively carbonation. A mostly tasty beer, but not exactly what I like in a DIPA.

Another damn good DIPA from the Last Coast, except this one has just a bit over what it should be on the price tag. Yum yum though!

Cloudy tan, bright, oh my mandarin, calamansi, and that type with a dash of chewy malt, and the hops aren’t super fresh.
