Within Us Hazy Imperial Double IPA 

 

 

 

Let’s be clear: the only reason hopheads aren’t flooding the brewery’s taproom on every single release day is because they’d have to hoof it way the fuck up to Alaska, and the only other place to find Anchorage Hazies.

With this hyper exclusivity and monstrous community reception, you’re probably wondering, What does this thing taste like?!

Imagine a fluffy cumulus cloud drenched in the flavors of fresh-picked blueberries, sticky mango, and dripping peach nectar magically transformed into a beer.

That’s what Within Us tastes like.

Powered by mega-potent cryo hops, it’s packed with tropical juice without any burn or bite.

The ultimate fruitiness of Galaxy Hops joins forces with Simcoe’s deep evergreen punch, creating a storm of peaches, passionfruit, and ripe Valencia oranges while the 8.4% ABV slips by the palate unnoticed.

These vibrant flavors make Within Us the definition of a “bucket list beer.”

And coming from Anchorage, it’s any hophead’s fleeting chance to taste some of the most impossible-to-find haze in the country.

 

 

Appearance:

Like the name THICK AND HAZY with an orange cloudy appearance similar to a mimosa with a cloudy white head. 

 

 

Aroma:

An aroma of Juicy Grapefruit, citrus, floral and grassy notes accompanied with mild hops. 

 

 

Flavor Profile:

  • Grapefruit/Passionfruit
  • Citrus 
  • Floral
  • Evergreen/Pine
  • Sweet Mango
  • Mild Hops

 

 

Overall:

The beer journey continues with a refreshing release from Anchorage Brewing Company! Beer for breakfast?

Say it isn’t so?

It’s true “Within Us” is a hazy Imperial/Double IPA, a hazy juice bomb is more like it!

Loaded with notes of citrus, mild hops, evergreen and grapefruit it could easily replace a mimosa at your next Sunday brunch.
