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.

Drank from tulip poured from bomber from Alaska. Aroma - copper aroma. Nothing enticing. Appearance - dark ruby auburn with light froth. Taste - not bad. I donít like red/amber beers but enough hops and malt to balance it out. Palate - same as taste. Hoppy burnt mouth feel. Overall - not bad. Very drinkable for the style.

Draft at Mudville 9. Deep red color. Hoppy and malty. Taste is more like a red ale. Pretty decent as far as what it's supposed to be ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a darkened copper with a pillowy cream colored head. Very floral nose with mild pine accents. Grapefruit zest with a slight residual resinous flavor along with a fresh florality and earthiness. Palate is actually light and airy for the amount and types of hops used. Nicely balanced. Somewhat thin and dry but overall enjoyable.

Eructoblaster (3117) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle - 22oz. Amber body with a thin off-white foamy head. Decent hoppy aroma with melon hints. Its sharp hoppy taste carries melon, woody, and nutty notes. Ends with a robust bitter finish. Decent IPA.

Father brought this back from Alaska. Nice Red IPA - had a blend of malts to complement the hops - quite smooth. Nothing too crazy, but very nice in itís simplicity. Good beer

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

On tap at Humpyís at the Anchorage airport. Clear copper pour with a thin off white cap. Great aroma - floral and piney. Taste is quite bitter, very piney and dry. Medium body. Decent IPA.

TET (1759) - FINLAND - MAY 19, 2013
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.
