Getting back to some old standbyes… Alaskan IPA comes to us from what I would regard as a solid brewery… these guys up on the high country know how to make their beer… guessing there isn’t much else to do, though, so they have that advantage. 🙂
Overall this isn’t a bad offering from the brewery. Not one of their standouts, but not bad. For the genre, it is a bit flat… low carbonation and very mellow. Hops are in there for sure, but again on the mellow side… their site says it is dry hopped, but I can’t notice it really. The finish is short and dry. As the tasting continues, it does tend to grow on you.
This may actually be a pretty decent session IPA because of how mellow it is. Overall, not bad but not one that will be on my IPA list in the future given choice.
