3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours golden amber lotta head from tap, smells of pears and strawberries and fir trees. Super light bitter taste, very drinkable. Tastes more like a good ipa than double. Good pleasant lingering bitterness.
Aroma is pine, fruit and big sweetness. The flavor is fruit/berries, piney hops, malts and a sweet/spicy/alcoholic finish. fidelis83 (2453) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - AUG 3, 2017
Clear copper pour with a two finger, off white head. Aroma of bitter pine, dankness, orange slice candy, caramel and bread, a hint of biscuits and planty hops. Flavor is caramel, wood, bread, toffee, lots of booze, light dankness, licorice, dried leaves, light berry notes and sweet and bitter citrus. Medium body, medium, sharp carbonation, oddly strong boozy heat for 8.5% and off dry finish. This is a weird one, it’s a tiny bit of a mess. sawbuck (743) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - AUG 1, 2017
Very fresh sample. Nice aroma of sweet bread, caramel, and some booze. Pine in there as well. Beautiful orange amber with a huge tan head. Sweet caramel up front. Quickly laced with deep pine resin with medium bitterness. Nice balance on this beer. Medium mouth feel with a pine laced bitter finish and a touch of warming from Alcohol. Nice an boozy in a good way. Solid. thorongil2 (3165) - , Ontario, CANADA - JUL 31, 2017
(Tap) clear, very bright orange brown colour with a small tan head; aroma of dankness, pepper, hint of jam; balanced flavour with a long, light bitter finish jmohno (1632) - Iowa, USA - JUL 28, 2017
Clear amber/copper. Nice lace and light creamy head. Nice aroma, not strong but significant. Not neccessarly hoppy either. Its minty with fresh maltyness and crisp air. TAste is kinda good mixed with mediocre. Pronounced bitter. Drinks well for a double, yet its drinkable/sipable and cleanish. something about this gives it marks down for a double. Good to average. I love Alaska, I worked in the Dutch Harbor cannary around 1999. Beautiful.

Might've had 10mg before I walked in here. Should be an interesting time. Pretty hoppy and heavy, not bad

Bottle BEST BY 072717. Sweet nose fills the room with citrus, hops, bright candy, touch resin, drop of medicine, something like vanilla/cake frosting. Pour very slightly hazy orange-amber but bright and fully-carbonated, large and rocky beige head. Taste medium-bitter but loaded with floral hop juice, strong alcohol that warms and eventually singes, sugar, citrus, candy. Bit of resin, bit of earth, clean bitterness a bit breadier but low-key lasts in the aftertaste. Dense and full, creamy-smooth throughout, fat body but not heavy, with wonderful accents coming up over time -- peach and especially mango to take me by surprise by the end. Strong but slightly indistinct malt with decent depth. A different kind of IPA, leans rather toward the Old Ale feel of class and permanence (though with an obviously different flavor profile).

Pours a darker amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is floral hops with caramel malts and a hint of alcohol. Flavor is all floral hops up front. Finishes with a sweetness from the malts and a slight warming. johndoughty (5472) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2017
