Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2005 Bottled. Slightly hazy, orange, white head that quickly dissapaites. Hoppy aroma. Bitter taste, full bodied and hoppy, but well balanced. Tasty.

UPDATED: AUG 9, 2006 Great beer, accesible, nice lacing, decent head, beautiful color. Anchor is probably the best craft brew which has nationwide, grocery store type of distribution.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - MAY 3, 2004
Golden hazy appearance, it was clear before i poured the sediment into it. Nice citrusy and hoppy nose, some fruityness too. Very balanced between the malts and the hops, very nice session beer this one. I like that it is not with so excessive hoppyness as other West Coast IPA’s. Beautiful!

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 2, 2004
Strong orange/grapefruit citrus hop nose. Bright, clear copper colour with dense, white head that lasts nicely. Nicely balanced between hops and malt. Lasting grapefruit bitterness. A hint of diacetyl that is not altogether unpleasant. Good carbonation and crisp mouthfeel. Surprisingly well balanced for a west coast IPA and rather enjoyable. Bottle.

This beer took me by surprise. A smooth, sweet taste. It has a pale, golden color, with a nice, creamy head.

GEOBRAU (188) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - APR 30, 2004
Bottle: Golden in color, with a head that dissapates (although not entirely). Sweet malt followed by bracing bitterness. citrus and peppery notes. Bitterness lingers quite a while. A tad too bitter for me in the aftertaste, but a quality beer to be sure.

jcc83 (137) - Athens, Georgia, USA - APR 29, 2004
Poured a beautiful golden with copper hues, capped of by a smooth creamy white head. Aroma was floral and hoppy. The flavor was excellent; full and hoppy, but complex. My first impression was that it was a relatively sweet beer, but each sip brought increased dryness and bitterness. A bitter finish, and full of flavor. Very smooth mouthfeel, which I really liked. A highly enjoyable IPA.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5077) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 29, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2011 I really like a number of Anchor’s beers including this one. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer pours a golden color with a small tan head. There is a mild flowery, hoppy aroma. The flavor has the distinct cascade hop flavor that I enjoy with a surprising amount of malty balance. The hops while strong are not overwhelming. Certainly no death by hops, but then again it is not so one dimensional as many IPAs get. A pleasant drink to be sure.

Orange/amber out of the bottle with lots of tiny suspended floaties. White foam ring to the bottom of the glass. Citrus hop nose. Caramel sweetness with well balanced hop flavors. Seems almost small for an IPA, but still a very nice beer.

Rupp (13) - Illinois, USA - APR 27, 2004
Deep golden,slight haze, good head retention. Good hop aroma, slight malt presence, slightly sweet, very fruity and clean. Great balance of malt and bitterness. Some diacetyl and caramel in flavor. Definitely a fine AIPA.
