About This Beer
This beer is the second collaboration between Anchorage’s Gabe Fletcher and master craftsman Mareko Maumasi, in a series they’re calling Bladesmith. They forged an Imperial IPA swirling with so many rippling flavors that it could only be called Maelstrom.
The friends fermented the brew with thiol-boosting yeast and Phantasm powder, creating a brew that drips with tropical juice. Then they double dry-hopped it with Phantasm, Riwaka, Nelson Sauvin, and Mosaic to add complex waves of citrus, sweet fruit, and white wine nuances.
Grapefruit aromas course over passion fruit and melon in the sip. Tangy green grape tones run through rapids of papaya and lychee. Smooth and light on the palate, with an approachable 6.4% ABV, just tasting it will put you in a flow state.
