Alaskan Black IPA


This beer is apparently a more “sessionable version of the Double Black IPA” that Alaskan released. The website says it has eight different malts and at least Cascade and Centennial hops.

Alaskan’s New Spring Seasonal Black IPA from Alaskan Brewing Co. on Vimeo.

American Black Ale. 6.4% ABV. 65 IBUs. Alaska. Spring Seasonal.

Really nice reddish hue with a tan head.

Nice nose of chocolate and orange. Reminds me of those jelly candies covered in chocolate. Hint of pine needles come through as well.

Mouthfeel is actually pretty nice. Medium body with a crisp carbonation.

Pine and orange meets that chocolate with a hint of caramel. Definitely has some bitterness, but fairly well-balanced.

Another solid black IPA here. To me, this is the proto-typical example of the style that has emerged, so why not give it a chance? 88 points.
