Alaskan Imperial IPA

CIMG3385

This is the latest in Alaskan’s Pilot Series beers. I know the beer has 2-row Pale and Crystal malts, but not sure what other malts and seems to be hopped with Chinook, Amarillo, and Centennial hops. This one was a little spendy, but we enjoyed drinking it as you can see above.

Stats:
Imperial India Pale Ale. 8.5% ABV. 60 IBUs. Alaska.

Amber to copper in color and a nice head and lacing.

Hugely hoppy nose and a lot of pine in this one. Very earthy with a lot of pine, mushrooms and a little bit of citrus comes through.

Mouthfeel isn’t too bad, but it’s a tad light for me.

Very earthy IPA, lots of pine, mushrooms, a little bit of that citrus again and a hint of vanilla as well.

One of the more earthy IPAs I’ve had in awhile, but pretty tasty. It’s spendy though. 88 points.
