Brewed in the bold spirit of Alaska, Sockeye Red IPA is a finely crafted Pacific Northwest-style India Pale Ale with a real bite. Ample pale two-row malt creates a fresh, firm body while specialty malts impart a spawning red hue. The predominant character of this fiesty catch comes from outlandish portions of Centennial, Cascade and Simcoe hops, giving this beer tremendous citrus and floral aroma and flavor.

Determined and bitter but amazingly balanced, Sockeye Red IPA is gnarly enough to take you hook, line and sinker. Forget about a bigger rig; grab a bigger glass.

Bright reddish orange color, tan head on edge. Citrus grapefruit hops dominate but balanced nicely. Smooth and quaffable.

This was a thoroughly impressive beer. It pours a reddish amber color with a massive tan head which took a damn eternity to dissipate in my pint glass. The aroma was entrancing. These were probably some of the freshest hops I have ever smelled, right there next to Stone and Alesmith IPA’s straight off the tap. I mean these hops were FRESH!!! The aroma was woody, piney, with hints of citrus and orange. The flavor was a class act as well. Caramel hints with citrus and sweet tangerine, tons of fresh hop bitterness. Its like i can also chew the sweetness amidst the tangy hoppiness. Seething with flavor. Floral dryness finishes this beer up. Full, sometimes creamy mouthfeel. Just a great beer!

Pours copper with a frothy head with nice lacing. Floral hop aroma. Flavor was hoppy, woody, and slightly citric, but finished clean. Overall a good beer.

SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 31, 2004
Copper in colour with an absolutely huge tan frothy head that leaves a sticky and thick lacing. The nose is very hoppy (but not overly) with a kiss of citrus. The taste has that zing of hops but ends up being more subdued and more of copper and rust than anything else. Not too bitter, pretty darn good overall, but I wouldnt say better than sierre nevada.

A dark red color, with a smooth whitish cream colored head, moderate to heavy hop aroma, with a substantially strong bitterness and finish.

Pours a darker red color with a decent white head. Aroma was nice and hoppy with a slight malt nose. Taste was very bitter, like i expected, still had a nice hop taste though.

jonwell (104) - Huntington Beach, California, USA - MAY 6, 2004
Pretty decent IPA. pours darker than normal, amber/orange mostly. A bit of head, decent lacing, nothing special. Aroma is spicy, piney hops, a but skunked, which is disappointing. taste is of sweet cara malts, decently hoppy but mostly bitter. Pleasent, overall, but I’ve had better.

i was impressed with the hop flavor in this brew. It started of witha fruity aroma, the taste was mainly hops nice bitter dry hops. There where some malty tones to it, but the hops made this beer.

Dark red color, nice frothy head. Fruity nose - cherry taste. Kind of acidic taste, but only shortly and weak.
