Bottle. Pours copper, small head. Aroma is really malty. Flavor is to malty for me, not a true imperial IPA in my opinion. However, there are some good things about it. ABV is well hidden, some pine and citrus notes. Not so much in the finish. Wish it had more bitter bite. Crash_the_dog (163) - Fairway, Kansas, USA - MAY 8, 2014
Just about perfect west coast IPA. Great piney nose, flavor to match, with a rich golden color with a creamy head. On tap at Palms, perhaps over carbonated here - overly crisp and bubbly, but a minor complaint. Terrific beer.

Poured a clear copper with an off white head. Citrus hop overpower the nose little hints of hops. Mixture of citrus of hops balanced nicely with malts. Decent double ipa. pkbites (947) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 28, 2014
Tap @ Cafe Lulu, Milwaukee. Slightly darker amber pour. Pine needles and citrus grapefruit nose. High alcohol content is barely noticable. This is very unbalanced. Almost nothing is tasted except the over abundance of hops. The body and character of the brew is impossible to rate as the hops just overpowers everything else. What’s with brewers putting a ton of hops into crummy beer and trying to pass it off as "craft" brew. I’m not falling for it. Overall Alaskan Brewing Company has not impressed me with many of their offerings. TXBadger (2811) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 28, 2014
Pours a darker amber color. Pine, grass, and citrus on the nose; all follow onto the palate, with pine being more dominant. Some malt on the finish, but this is definitely a hop bomb.

Floral tropical fruit hop aroma. Orange color. Citrus and pine and some candied fruit dominate the taste. Good malt backbone. Well balanced with a good lingering bitterness. Definitely a taste bud killer if you have more than one.

This beer has a darker color to it and a very smooth taste. It has a nice finish to it as well.

Great piny aroma. light amber color. Malty apple taste. light to medium bitter finish. Not particularly spicy. Very smooth mouthfeel with crisp front and sweet end. Overall a nice ipa that is not your typical west coast double. robforbes (2243) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - APR 19, 2014
pours a clear dark amber with a large yellowish head, and good lacing.
smell is of hops, floral, citrus, malt in the back, and leaves.
taste is of light grapefruit, hops, bark, a touch of pine, some caramel, and malt. ends a little oily and bitter. ansermadide (1526) - Kyle, Texas, USA - APR 19, 2014
Glass-like and bold orange in color with a bright white head, this beer has an aroma of crisp, fresh, strong, complex hops with a touch of caramelized malts. Some strong bitterness protrudes from the flavor that, although hoppy, is mostly sweet and almost dull in body. It’s full in the mouth, but something about his seems unbalanced - at least between the flavors, body, and mouthfeel. The finish is mostly of hop flavor and is really empty.
