Twister Creek IPA
(Denali Brewing Company)

If I was to make a beer run to Denali Brewing Company to pick up some cans of Twister Creek IPA it would be a pretty epic journey...the drive from my house to the brewery is about 4,500 miles. Thankfully a friend in Alaska sent some airmail and it arrived tasting extremely fresh. Very thankful for the chance to try this harder to find IPA! Cheers!

From the Denali Brewing site:

"When it was discovered that hops not only added bitterness and aroma to beer, but made it last longer too, British brewers created the IPA style to survive the long voyage to India, where her majesty’s thirsty troops awaited unspoiled ale. Twister Creek IPA combines the finest Pacific Northwest and British hops atop a foundation malty enough to balance its 71 IBUs. High octane, full-flavored, well-balanced. This is the beer you’ve been thirsty for."

Here we go...

Pour - light gold in appearance with a great looking inch of white foam on top. Clean and clear in the glass, very nice looking pour. 

Aroma - big whiffs of resiny pine, fresh cut grass, and citrus. Some hints of pale malty sweetness. Aromatic and inviting.

Taste - bitterness invades the tongue with grapefruit, sweet orange, and lemon peel flavors along with some floral and fresh hop notes. The malt sweetness is present in the aftertaste and stays on the tongue duking it out with the hop bitterness. Solid IPA that is crisp, hoppy, and refreshing. 

Overall - well-balanced IPA that is both aromatic and flavorful. Definitely could drink a few pints of this at the bar and be happy with the decision. Too bad this one is so hard to get a hold of! 

Note - Twister Creek takes its name from a stream located not from Talkeetna which is known for its fishing. Its also the name of a restaurant in town. Along with Twister Creek IPA, Denali Brewing is also canning their Single Engine Red and Mother Ale.
