COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named after a radical skiing and snowboarding maneuver, Alaskan Brewing Company’s newest Spring Seasonal Release, Hop Turn IPA offers a change in direction from the recent trends in West Coast IPAs. Meant as an alternative to the hop bitterness wars that have defined much of the current development in IPAs, Hop Turn seeks a more delicate taste experience influenced by legendary old-world beers.

Drake (14078) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 15, 2016
12 ounce bottle from The Malt Shoppe, 9/10/16. Hazy orange amber, large foamy tan head, good retention. Aroma of doughy malt and floral hops. The taste is floral, melon, herbal hops and pale malt. Medium bodied.

3.4
arminjewell (9720) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - NOV 13, 2016
Pour on tap, clear golden orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of bread, grass, biscuit, slight orange, hints of pine. Taste was a mix of pine, orange, grass into a bit of grain, biscuit, bread, finishing slightly bitter. Not bad.

Strykzone (7713) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 7, 2016
12 ounce bottle from hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. A white fluffy head leaves sticky and thick lacing. Cloudy golden brownish. Citrus and tropical fruit aroma but first sip is malt forward. More gentle hop notes that bring fruit that is kind of indistinct. Some spiciness and melon. Late it became sweeter with a hint of coconut and pineapple with a bit of cinnamon. Decent.

3.7
hayduke (5702) - Eureka, California, USA - SEP 7, 2016
Shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. Poured from the 12 oz bottle gold with a large long lasting white head. The nose on this one is tropical fruit, citrus, and pine. Medium body. Flavor is well balanced between the malts and hops, with nice caramel malts and a good well balanced dose of citrus, pine, and fruit followed by a touch of melon. Finishes mildly bitter with fruit and spiciness and some earthiness. Nice well balanced beer.

jake65 (4003) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - AUG 13, 2016
Bottle: Golden pour with a modest white head. Intense aroma of citrus and grassy hops, some pine. Taste is on the heavier side of bitter, with a light citrus sweetness. Lingering grassy finish.

4.1
dlihcsnatas (790) - Temple, Texas, USA - JUL 6, 2016
Cloudy Golden with small fast fading head. Smells of citrus and floral hops. Taste is pretty mild on the hops for an IPA but still good and very chuggable. With the respectable ABV and the reasonable price this is one that I hope to stock up on next spring.

3.4
Westchesterco (2207) - mclean, Virginia, USA - JUN 9, 2016
Poured from a bottle it is a cloudy golden color with a slight head. The aroma is citrus and the taste is string bitter citrus flavor that finished with a hint of black licorice

3.5
stevoj (5637) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 5, 2016
Bottle from Boise Co-op. Pours out with a nice off white frothy head. Sweet aroma, mild citrus notes. Taste follows the sweet notes, some grapefruit tartness, mild soapy notes. Medium weight, slick. Sweetness lingers.

3.3
kaser (6409) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 21, 2016
Orange bright cloudy color, white sticky head. Draft at uncle mikes. Not much aroma on this. The taste follows that - it's easy drinking and not offensive - but leaves you hanging for more. Rather boring. Slight fruits and hops and bitterness but missing something.

3.5
chriszfat (84) - Lake stevens, Washington, USA - MAY 15, 2016
From a sampler pack. Pours cloudy golden with medium head. Aroma is nice piney malty goodness. Drinks and finishes rather light with citrus. Could use some more hoppy bitterness.
