COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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?

Erzengel (1912) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAR 3, 2014
Golden in colour, the nose is fresh and intense hops. The beer starts a bit sweet, but very nice floral hopped. Pine, Citrus and floral hops next to the nice bitterness, that coincides great with the nice sweetness in the background. The aftertaste is long, bitter-intense, fruity-floral. Nice beer! --> 13/12/12/12

22 ounce bottle. Pours golden orange with a nice white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, and malt. Taste is grapefruit, tropical, pine, and caramel malt. Pretty sure bottle was not fresh.

beerandbeyond (625) - ISRAEL - JAN 18, 2014
Bottle sample. Clear golden color, nice off-white head. Fruity and spicy hop nose, somewhat soapy and sugary aroma. Full hop flavor, citrus peel, very bitter, slightly alcoholic and also heavy on the malt side. Long bitter finish, somewhat liqour-like, but overall OK.

Bule (574) - California, USA - DEC 3, 2013
22oz bottle pours a slightly hazy pale amber color with a good amount of head. Hoppy yeasty aromas. Very full hop flavor but noticeable alcohol.

kerenmk (2001) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - DEC 3, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer&Beyond store. Thanks Alex. Clear gold with white head. Hop-citrus, pink grapefruit aroma, crispy bitter taste - very bitter. Medium-bodied, dry, bitter finish. Nice.

Steve_0 (2232) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 5, 2013
Bottle at Armin’s, thanks man. Pour is clear orange with a frothy white head and good lacing. Grapefruity, orange, slightly oxidized, bready, caramelly, and grassy aroma. Taste very oxidized, cardboardy, old fruit, bitter grapefruit, caramel, and stale malt. Medium body with high carbonation. Way past it’s prime.

Bomber at Armin's place. Aroma is earth hops and cardboard. Taste cardboard, old hops. This is a bad sample.

Pour out of 22 oz bottle, clear orange pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, grapefruit, hints of orange, touch of earth, oxidized for sure. Taste is a mix of

Review number 350! 22 oz bomber poured into my ipa glass. Pours a light aber color with a thick fluffy off white head that leaves great lacing. Smell of Pine, citrus and caramel. Tastes of all the same things with the hops being the forefront of this beer but also carmely malt there. Mouthfeel is light and creamy with great carbonation. I’ now know why their beer is kind of spendy but its worth every penny to be honest. This beer is definetly for the hop heads. Also had a nice light summer feel for a dipa as well, very well crafted.
