3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Once again, Anchor Brewing does not disappoint. Always a quality beer. The Anchor IPA is another strong entry in their lineup. A good IPA. Medium hops. Slight bitter taste with a semi-sweet finish.

Ambar escura, espuma de boa formação e consistência. Aroma bem lupulado, mais cítrico que resinal, levemente amadeirado, abacaxi maduro. Paladar com leve dulçor caramelado, amagor resinal médio, bem balanceada. Aftertaste adstringente, leve pêssego , refrescante.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(2014-15 backlog) Several 12oz bottles via bierpost and Maruhn. - Oldschool in the sense of still UK-inspired IPA, dense with condensed fruit jam flavours of quince, lemon peel, sweet grape, sweet orange and a mango&peach peel pungency, before going into California pinewood territory and zipping the thing down with quite a subtle astringency. Hard to make an impression with balanced recipes like these nowadays, falling somewhat confusingly between sane&traditional and hopforward&bold - but this 30yrs-late hop-cocktailed update of their Liberty Ale Cascade classic is much appreciated.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle pours a hazy orange amber witha full sticky tan head tha trecedes into sturdy drying sheets of lacing. Peppery and spicy hop aromas, Flavors are biter, fairly harsh and more of the woody piney variety. Some strange chemical notes as well. Strange. You can have the elephant

Farbe braun. Sehr "grüner" Geruch mit Hopfenaromen. Im Geschmack leicht wässrig, trotzdem mundvoll. Wenig Rezenz. Im Abgang richtig bitter.

Bottled 355ml. -from Beer Geek Shop Zadar, Croatia. Amber coloured, medium sized off-white head, fruity alcoholic nose. Sweet malty, caramel, fruity, notes of citrusy hops and alcohol with rather dry bitter finish. Honestly boring IPA.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is deep malty with hints of bread, dried fruits and sweet mandarins (the fruit, not the people). Taste is caramel with orange, pine and a nutty hint that delves underneath. A little earthy and tired aura over this one, but with a blueprint bitterness. I guess you could call this one "a perfect old school IPA", but it doesn’t take away the fact that I demand something more of my brews nowadays.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.355 l bottle from local Albert Heijn (God save the Netherlands), best before 4/2017. Clear, golden amber with a medium large, fluffy, slowly diminshing, tan to white head. Resiny-malty aroma of pine, honey, cinnamon, strawberry jam, cane sugar and some orange. Not very IPA-like but pleasant. Sweetish, resiny-malty taste of pine, honey, cinnamon, cane sugar, molasses, strawberry jam and some orange, followed by a medium long, medium bitter and very resiny finish. Medium to full body, slightly oily mouthfeel, almost flat. Is this an IPA? Where are the hops actually? Apart from that, it is a somewhat interesting beer but not what I expected, it is quite malty and oily, like a light barley wine. Strange.
