I've HEARD of some IPA's being hazy before, but never seen it. My IPA seems pretty crystal clear as well as most bottles I've drinken. The IPA's I've enjoyed on draft have been pretty clear, as well, but not sure I would call them "crystal" clear.

However, I'm sure most of the bottled IPAs undergo filtering, whereas the tapped IPAs, including the A.B. probably does not... *shrug*

They probably just throw it in the description in case they get a hazy batch it won't scare someone off... I'm sure it's probably pretty clear, say in comparison to a wheatbeer or something.

EDIT: Wish I could try to Alaskan Brewing stuff... Doubtful we are getting that in PA. :/

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.
She should try the Widmer Broken's a very mild IPA...tasty and mild.

Just bought a sixer while on a run to the store for Ben & Jerrys for SWMBO. Beer is a bit lighter than most IPA's but has a great hop aroma. Very well balanced and not quite as hoppy as most IPA's I have had. This may because I have been drinking Stone RIPA lately. Very good beer however as should be expected from Alaskan.

Pictures for the Alaskan IPA deprived

I would tend to agree with what others have said about this brew somewhat lite for an IPA. This would a good beer to pass to a domestic beer drinker who may have never tried an IPA as a means to get them away from the mass marketed swill.
