Originally brewed in 1975 to commemorate Paul Revere's ride, this brew is a heavily hopped ale (Cascade hops) with a copper color and a hoppy nose.

Pours clear amber with a large frothy white head. Aroma is clean floral hops. Taste is of hops but not especially complex or aggressive. Some toffee character.

Very bready, i think it was a bit skunky. light brown/amber color, clear with tall tan head. very hoppy and spicy with very little sweet finish. I was a bit disappointed . I bet there are better anchor liberty ales out there. perhaps another in the fridge will be better

Ah, Anchor Liberty. A magnificent shrine to the Cascade. Pours shiny copper with fine white head and some nice lingering lace. Wonderful citrus, pine and flowery hop aromas. Smooth rounded mouthfeel. Perfect crisp hop bitterness and a warm malt finish that sneaks up on you and puts a period at the end of every sip. There are bigger IPAs, but not many that pull off such superb poise and balance. This was one of the first IPAs I tasted, and now, many IPAs later, it is every bit as impressive.

Bottle; Hazy orange with excellent tight head dragging belgian laze down the sides of the glass. As you pour you get an agreeable sweet almost candylike aroma - I do not realy smell the cascade here. The flavour is dominated by spicy hops with a long dry bitterness. I feel it could use some more malt to back up the powerful bitterness. A bit of alcohol can be tasted. But still a great beer. The carbonation is perfect and the mouthfeel is big and filling.

Bottle. Copper colored with a foamy white head. Nose is floral hops, toffee and lemon. Taste is malty and slightly fruity with a strong citrus and piney hop background. Probably one of the first American IPAs, and IMHO still one of the best.

Pour is a dark yellow with a huge white head. Aroma is nice an hoppy. Flavor is aslo hoppy but very mild. Prob not a IPA. Its still tasty and smooth. Could be your every day beer.

Very good! Bottle poured a gold yellow with a good head to start but faded fast,good lacing. This beer had a nice light aroma of hopps, with a flavor to match, light easy drinking hopps taste with a small tang bite at the finish.

Bottle. Golden color with a very slight haze. Head is thin and white, but long lasting. IPA, huh? Aroma is of floral hops and sweet malt, not nearly as hoppy as SNPA-which is not an IPA. Flavors of citric and grassy hops, quite pronounced, but not overbearing. Really doesn’t seem like all Cascades to me. Still enough caramelly sweet malt in the background to carry this beer through the roller coaster of flavors that stops with a dry, spicy, slightly puckering finish. Moderate carbonation level from natural carbonation. I like this one better than other APA’s(sorry for the style category dis) like SNPA and Summit EPA.

Just like someone else wrote below, I didn’t know this was an IPA either. Some flavor, but nothing special.
