Alaskan Alaskan IPA
85A well-executed, profoundly hoppy, golden beer that threatens to cloy but never does.
Alaskan Big Nugget Barley Wine Ale 2006
73A complex but not particularly satisfying barley wine. Not a patch on the same brewery's outstanding Alaskan Smoked Porter.
Alaskan Smoked Porter 2005
83A deep brown beer with garnet highlights, vintage-stamped and enjoying a cult following. An acquired taste but brilliantly constructed nonetheless.
Alaskan Smoked Porter 2006
88The peaty smoke flavours take a bit of getting used to but this is a surprisingly easy drinking strong porter that would work wonderfully with shellfish. A world classic.

80The piney additions enhance rather than dominate this sound, dark copper-coloured ale.
