Nice drinkable ipa. Not very original but also without flaws. Good floral fruity mildly bitter hop flavor. Not watery and not sweet. Pleasant carbonation.

I love that anchor has started to branch out and adding more horses to it’s stable. This one is a winner. Keep up the good work,

The aroma is wondeful as is the beautiful amber color. The taste is quite bitter, not unpleasant but some sourness or sweetness might be nice.
The palate is like way too fuzzly, forced carbonation.
Overall, good but the aroma promises me better things then I tasted.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Coppery amber colour with a covering of cream coloured head with a greenish tinge to it, suggesting an overdose of hoppiness. To be fair, this is what I anticipated. The aroma doesn’t let me down either with pungent herbal and resinous hops with a generous nose of stonefruit maltiness. Gorgeous.
The flavour is classic West Coast IPA as well with sherbety fizz and a quality amount of bittering. This is the standard troops.

Hazy dark copper with s large head. The aroma is a mix of Cascade hops, caramel malt, and mild fruit esters. The flavor is similar, and has a bit of a buyer finish. Pretty solid.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Bottled on: 06/06/14. Nice label. A clear rusty amber pour with a thick and creamy antique white head. The nicely balanced aroma features some caramel, pine, grapefruits, and zesty citrus rinds. Goes down thin to medium-bodied. A good bit of caramel and toffee upfront taste-wise. Kinda grainy. Bitter grapefruits, tangy oranges, and zesty rinds finish things off. Resiny. Not bad, but not too memorable either.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. A clear, dark golden beer with a small, dense, light beige head. The aroma has lightly cheesy hops, with pine cones, resins, lemon notes and a caramel maltyness. Toffee, a faint note of licorice, a fine bitterness, some pine cones and resin and a flowery touch in the flavor. Full body, with a pleasant carbonation, although a tad hard. Lasting bitter and malty finish. Sure a fine beer, but I’d like it to be more hop forward. 141025
