Alaskan Freeride APA

CIMG7809

When Alaskan stopped brewing their Pale Ale because of hop supply inconsistencies, they developed this recipe to take it’s place. This one features 2-row and Crystal with Cascade, Citra, and Centennial hops.

Stats:
American Pale Ale. 5.3% ABV. 40 IBUs. Alaska.

Light orange color. A ton of head when poured down the middle with some nice sticky lacing.

Nice hoppy nose. Lots of citrus, hint of peaches, and a bit of grain coming through. Just a bit of sweetness on there, as well.

Highish carbonation, light-medium body. Highly drinkable.

Quite fruity up front with a hint of tea and a nice grainy mid-back. Lovely finish of honey and peaches.

I’m perfectly okay with this beer replacing their regular APA. I’ve actually had this beer quite a few times around town, and it’s just a nice, easy-drinking beer that delivers on flavor. 89 points.
