Alaskan Icy Bay IPA

Type: IPA
Origin: Juneau, Alaska
ABV: 6.2%
Website

Alaskan is one of those breweries that is large but consistently puts out good products that can appeal to both the masses as well as the beer enthusiast. This one is a new IPA that they came up with in the past few months. I generally like my IPAs very hop forward and aggressive with lots of pine and citrus. This one, is not like that, although it is a well balanced IPA. The malts are light and the hopping is in check, but there is nothing revolutionary about it. I would view this as a gateway west-coast IPA and you would wax nostalgic about it as you move onto bigger and better things.
