Poured a caramel, honey, clear color with 6-to-7 fingers of khaki white, fluffy head. Some bubbles streams coming up from the bottom of the glass. Good amount of layered foamy lacing on the sides of the glass. Good retention. (Sight - 3.88)
Smelled caramel, toffee, rye, herbal, soap, pine, light Citra, slight toasty malts, pears? and backdoor floral. (Smell - 3.75)
Tasted similar to the nose, getting rye, herbal, faint menthol, soapy pine, bitter toasty malts, toffee, caramel and slightly boozy notes. (Taste - 3.63)
Medium body. Oily-to-creamy texture. Average-to-lively carbonation. Bitter finish. (Feel - 3.63)

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle 35,5cl. Orange coloured amber with off white head. Syruppy substance, very beautiful. The aroma is, like expected of an IPA full of dry hops. When the beer rests in the glass for a while I can also recognize malts and a sweet undertone. The taste is mild at first but develops in a beautiful dry hop bitterness which lasts long in the mouth.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear dark amber color with rich white foam. Sweet aroma, grassy, resiny, caramely, malty and with some citrus hints. Taste is floral, citrusy, with a little bit of pine, but with a strong malty character. Aftertaste has a good amount of bitterness, that lasts for a long time. More East Coast than West Coast IPA, but good though.

Wanted to try this, I like how Anchor is brewing all this new stuff .. . Tan .. Medium foam .. Musky hops, leather, dried grass and citrus .. Mouth is easy, good finish. A few pints would be no problem .. . . Everything she does is magic, well, balloon animals mostly..

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours dark cloudy amber with thin head. Medium to high carbonation. Very mild aroma. Light hops bitterness. Mild citrus and banana flavor. A very easy drinking IPA. In general I prefer stronger but this would be good if looking for a refreshing and light but tasty beer.

12oz bottle to pint glass. Pours ruby red amber. Tan creamy head. Aroma of cinnamon, dried fruits and caramel malts. Taste is malty, Belgian yeast, herbal spices, dried fruit. Finish is fruity bittersweet and cleans up quickly. Pretty light bitterness for an IPA from CA.
