Pours a light amber with a long-lasting, white, bubbly head; lacing all the way down. Aroma is nice and clean and very hoppy/grassy with some citrus. Flavor is slightly malty in the front, with some floral and citrusy flavors, followed by a solid jolt of bitter hops. Very clean, nice and crisp. IPAs are not my favorite style, but this is a nice example of a decent one.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - APR 21, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2004 Pours a pretty amber with a thick frothy off-white head. Nose is floral, hoppy, and sweet. Good taste, very, very clean. There are notes of hops, apple, lemon, yeast and citrus. Finish is great, with a hint of spice and yeast, kinda like fresh bread. This is another great beer by the fine folks at ABC. You can taste the care that they put into their beers. This beer would go perfectly with spicy foods or a very robust meal. Re-rate: too bitter and where are the hops?

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2005 Nice ale. Pours a clear amber with an off-white head. Aroma is very hoppy and citrusy. Taste is of strong hops, grapefruit and is very floral. Nicely balanced, not overpowering. I would consider this a mix between an American Pale Ale and an IPA. Mouthfeel is very full and round. recommended.

I'd seriously underestimated this beer in the past, for my enthusiasm was markedly greater when I sat down to study it, smell it, and appreciate it's complexities. I'll bet I was drinking it out of a bottle in a noisy, smoky bar. Thick white head, settles soon. Pale orange color. Fresh aroma, incredible fruit! Peaches, apricots, citrus, with perfect integration--nothing stands over or above anything else. Quite mellow and smooth, this is an ideal session beer, not too powerful in hops or alcohol, but one that rewards the attentive. Fritz Maytag and the boys at Anchor are the ultimate craftsmen and this is a perfect product. Everything is so well-formed and pure, it's amazing. Great balance, flavor, everything

Bottle. Clean amber pour. Noticeable hops in aroma. Taste is unique – not an overpowering IPA or anything, but a good balance achieved – tough flavour to describe. Noticeably biter finish. This is only my second Anchor tasting, and I much prefer this to the steam. Well done.

Skip (206) - Indiana, USA - APR 15, 2004
Hoppy, but still manages to show some fruit on the tongue. The aroma is like fresh grass mingled with the hops. Copper color.

This is pretty tame for an IPA. The malt balances things out quite well. The grapefruit (cascades) is obvious. Very grassy/Earthy.

DanielBrown (3819) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2004
Bottle from Safeway, Rubery, West Mids. Another amber coloured ale, with a slight marmalade aroma. A very bizarre flavour - definitely some vegetable in here, perhaps carrott, with brown sugar to start off with. Residual sourness in the finish. Not particularly pleasant, fairly savoury and heavy. A complex, brandy quality.

Golden color with a nice white head. The taste i light malty with a dominant but very wellbalanced hoppyness.
