Alaskan Hopothermia

Type: double IPA
Origin: Juneau, Alaska
Price: $10.50 per 4 pack
ABV: 8.5%
NSP: 11.5

The first time I saw this beer was at the Great Alaska Beer and Barleywine Festival in January. Lots of great beers there, but this was best in show for me. Part of it may have been due to me having a weird stomach bug at the time, but it was really the only thing I wanted more of at the time (this includes a liberal pour of Anchorage - A Deal with the Devil which I basically poured out after a thorough shonking effort). I believe that the festival was the debut for this beer, so I would assume this bottle is from the first batch, so a few months old. The reason I feel this is a few months old is that this has definitely faded a little bit from the first time I had it, but it is still super hop-forward and better than most DIPAs. And the NSP is just about right. So go drink it now.
