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.

UPDATED: APR 23, 2013 Tasty, standard red ale, nothing fancy. Malty and hoppy. Lacking in the ABV department but overall, drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Medium reddish color. Great lacing. Strong, clean, grapefruit nose that actually made me say "wow" out loud. Strong bittering hops start, mixed with a floral/grapefruit taste, before a lasting bitterness takes over. Great level of carbonation.

Fatehunter (1760) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - AUG 31, 2015
Pours two fingers of head on a hazy dark straw body. The aroma is big grain and lemon. The taste has a malty start, then a moderate lemon bitterness. The texture is thicker and fizzy. Nice.
