COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When it was discovered that hops not only added bitterness and aroma to beer, but made it last longer too, British brewers created the IPA style to survive the long voyage to India, where her majesty’s thirsty troops awaited unspoiled ale. Twister Creek IPA combines the finest Pacific Northwest and British hops atop a foundation malty enough to balance its 71 IBUs. High octane, full-flavored, well-balanced. This is the beer you’ve been thirsty for.

solidfunk (8838) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JAN 2, 2016
Some light citrus and a lot of big malt backbone. Hazy amber pour with great head and lacing. Light bitter finish with some tang, some peel in finish. Not bad. Tap at Alaska Lodge at SEATAC.

after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - JUN 18, 2014
Draft at SB. Pours a hazy orange-ish medium amber with a dense and creamy off-white head that hangs around for a while. Bright grapefruity nose, both sweet and a bit piercing. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Lightly toasted caramel with grapefruit notes showing. Gets a bit dry at the end, but not acetic or twangy at all. This is another horse in a much-contested race; the semi-resiny, semi-fruity IPA market is a tough one in this area and these guys deserve a shot at the title. It’s not quite a world-beater in its current form, but it’s pleasant and easy-drinking.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 24, 2013
Can:   Pale golden, light carbonation, moderate to large foamy white head, nice lacing.   Citrusy nose, pith and peel, slight tea leaves.   Similar on the tongue, not overly bitter, faint citrus peel and pith.   Not all that bitter, unlike what the nose suggests.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Tea leaves and citrus pith on the finish.   Smells a bit more vibrant than it comes across.   Decent little IPA tho, despite not being all that hoppy.

jgb9348 (6191) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 11, 2011
Copper glowing body with a very thin off-white head. Lightish hop aroma with a nice slightly fruity nose. Medium-bodied; Fairly typical brewpub IPA with some bitter notes, a relatively good balance of malt and hops and a fairly bitter hop finish. A typical beer that you’d expect from an operation this size, but nothing bad at all. Definitely worth trying and I’m happy I sampled this beer here! I sampled this pint on draught at the brewpub in Talkeetna, Alaska on 26-June-2010.

Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - MAR 17, 2014
The appearance has a hazy golden yellow/orange body with a one finger white foamy head that dies almost immediately, lotsa foamy clingy white lacing all over the place in no sort of pattern (all 6 cans were this way). The smell has strong dank but piney hops barreling through barely letting any other sort of smell come out (all 6 cans were this way). The taste has some strong bitter hops in all 6 cans, mellow maltiness comes just a tad, light citrus aftertaste, dry bitter finish. On the palate, it sits about a light to medium, sessionable, and carbonation is just right for the style and for me. Overall, this is a very well done AIPA that I would have again and also am looking to try more offerings from this brewery, I’ll gladly look forward to sending some of this East to see what my East coast friends think
