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?

I liked this as a double IPA. Tons of piney NW hops. very little citrus, but there and pleasing. Not too over the head, but a great little beer. I’d drink again (but as Mike says, I never have a beer twice!).

On tap at the brewery. Incredibly smooth and drinkable. The hops and alcohol are well balanced. If you like IPA’s then you’ll like it.

22oz Bomber – Gravity Beer Market - Olympia, WA
Aroma: Great IPA aroma with fruity and floral scents.
Appearance: Amber in color, clear with a thin head.
Flavor: Good IPA flavor this was big but did not kick in your teeth with too much hops.
Palate: Dry IPA finish, with a Good Mouthfeel.
Overall: This was a very well brewed beer. I liked it a lot. Made it hard to drink the rest of the night with all the hops.

22oz bottle from Bottleworks. Pours a clear dark golden to very light amber color with a big white head that leave a small amount of lacing in the glass. Nose is aromatic resiny hops with hints of citrus and some spicy floral notes. Really, a nicely balanced nose. This one is equally balanced on the palate. Great carbonation with citrus and slight maltiness up front and then some, but not too much, bittering on the end. Enjoyable DIPA, but the astringent qualities did come out as it warmed up a bit.

bitbucket (2165) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - JUN 6, 2009
Bomber. Pours hazy dark gold with a lacy white head. Solid Hawaiian pineapple aroma with a layer of malt behind it. Medium body and carbonation. Surprisingly, there is a significant pineapple quality to the taste, along with peach and toffee which turns to pine on the finish with a lingering resinous aftertaste.

nickd717 (4123) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 27, 2010
Bottle shared by Arbitrator on BA. Pours clear copperish-amber with a nicely formed white head and good lacing. Aroma is fairly sweet caramel malt as well as citrusy hops. A little faded from age (>6 months I believe), but I won’t fault it for that. Flavor also exhibits some fading on the hop character but is still very good. Caramel and pale malt, with hops mainly of the citrusy variety. Grapefruit in particular. Medium-bodied and fairly palate wrecking. Nice mouthfeel. Pretty good beer overall, especially considering the age.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - MAY 5, 2010
22oz courtesy of ditmier. Pours a hazy orange with a thick, yellowish white head. Excellent retention and retarded lacing. Aroma is tropical fruits, lemon sorbet, orange juice, some spicy alcohol. Lots of perfumey, subdued hops, and lots of oxidized apples. No pine resin or old strawberry cheesecake that taints many a DIPA. Taste is bitter, piney, lots of oxidized apples, light apple brandy, some light booziness that turns into almost a vodka shot after it warms.

Gold with a small white head. Aroma is of hops and pine. Taste is of grass, hops, and pine.

Sammy (11076) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 30, 2010
A hopload, from City Beer Store. Dark body, with a lasting white head. Above average mouthfeel. You buy into bitterness, not very complex. A bomber is a lot. Still tasty and hop aromas.

A decent offering, well worth the money and i’d definitely get it again. Just didn’t knock my socks off. Bottle might have been a little old, would liek to try it again.
