The guy states in the article:

Quote:
Alaskan IPA pours light and not quite amber. It's slightly hazy from the copious use of hops throughout the brewing process.
I have never heard of a beer being hazy from hops. Has anyone else? I would think an IPA should be cristal clear.

I had a couple pints of this last weekend. I'd never heard of it before so that explains it. My wife actually ordered a pint of it. She's NEVER ordered an IPA, and rarely found one that she can drink.

On draft I'd say that its more of a slightly hoppy pale ale than it is an IPA, light in color, about 4-6 SRM, lightly hopped, but very clean and crisp. I enjoyed it, but I considered it about the most mild IPA I've ever had. Good balance though.
