COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Wonderfully red IPA. Hoppy, but not overwhelming. ...nicely complex to boot. Not too shabby for my last day in Alaska.

A beautiful, reddish colour, a head is quite weak and beige. Aroma of tropical fruits, mangos, pine, some citrusfruits, fructose and some caramell malts. Taste is strongly bitter at the beginning, pine, only some fruits, citrusfruits and caramell. The aftertaste is dry and pine cone. Medium bodied, slippery and pleasant to drink. Strongly bitter and piney IPA, the good beer.

Draught. Reddish pour with thick white head. Citrus, pine and grass aroma, balanced. Flavour is hoppy without being a hop bomb, they didn’t make a monster. Hop finish

12 ounce can from Hayduke. Darker than most with some haze. A fluffy off white head that leaves sticky lacing. A big aroma of citrus and floral hops with malts to match. The first sip brings some big bitterness. This has the makings of a double but without the ABV. A big citrus bite to this one. It is not for the faint of heart and is a hop lover’s dream. There are some herbal notes, too. This settled a bit by the finish but it resembled an IIPA to the end. Huge flavor and lower ABV is a winning combination for me.
