Midnight Sun Sockeye Red

CIMG2557

My girlfriend was kind enough to bring me back 3 beers from her native Alaska. I got this beer, the Arctic Rhino (which you will see tomorrow), and the Panty Peeler. No review for the Panty Peeler as that was my weapon of choice for GtwF! This beer features plenty of hops including Centennial, Cascade, and Simcoe.

Stats:
India Pale Ale. 5.7% ABV. 70 IBUs. Anchorage, Alaska.

Brownish red in color with a lasting head and some decent lacing.

Very hoppy nose. Lots of citrus and pine. There is definitely a pine forest in this glass. Reminds me of Hop Rod Rye.

Lowish carbonation, but good mouthfeel.

Again, very hoppy, very piney, and very citrusy. Hint of diacetyl, but not bad. Fantastic length, leaves you with a apple, orange, and pine.

Lovely beer, but for hop heads only. Reminds me a lot of Hop Rod Rye and just about as good. This might be a difficult one for most to find, but if you do, get it! 91 points.
