Surprisingly good ale. Really enjoyed this. Quite heavily hopped, and I liked it! Nice color, nice head, nice lacing.

Light amber/orange in colour with a lasting white head. Big spicy and woody hop aroma with some citrus notes. Flavour is dry and bitter yet lots of citrus, grapefruit and woody hop notes help it out. Interesting though not what I was expecting.

Almost clear light amber. Head began a nice blanket that became rocky and then even and long lasting. Citrusy and bitter aroma that appeared to be a blend of American and floral hops--also some pine. Obvious caramel and butterscotch notes as well. Flavour was a journey that began with citrus/floral/pine hops, which continued to a caramel and butterscotch/toffee, and ended with a delicate wave of bitterness that was ascertive, but not astringent. Medium body and a bit puckering from the bitterness.

UPDATED: DEC 24, 2004 This was my first ale from Anchor Brewing. The head formed nicely and left lacing down the glass. The aroma was rich with light amber color. The bitter taste of hops was well balanced. This was like a pale ale. I enjoyed this ale very much.

UPDATED: APR 7, 2005 Tap: The taste was not very impressive. Bitter but without good qualitys. It didnít really taste like an IPA strangely enough. It didnít know it was one. Bottle: Much better out of the bottle in my opinion. Citrus, graitfruit and caramel are present along with the recognizable Anchor malts. In the finish the caramel becomes more present. This is very good out of the bottle and not so good on tap because there is much more hop presense in the bottle and I am not sure why.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - DEC 18, 2004
Slightly cloudy, honey body with some orange hues. Very big head of white bubbles. Stiff and lasts a long time. Smells of pine tree hops and light lemon. Very clean essence . Taste is lemony and pine hops with a sweet, malt backbone. buttery. This is a very good, above average beer but I will not say that it is excellent.

Bottle from Beerhugger. Light amberish in color. Nice white head is medium lived and leaves good lacing. Citrus and floral hops in the aroma. Balance is a little off. More malt balance would be nice. Dry. Nicely hopped for bitterness and flavor.

SimonB (66) - Geneva, SWITZERLAND - DEC 13, 2004
Gold-orange clear body. Average size white head, mostly lasting with very good lacing. High citrusy hop aroma, grapefruit-like (definitively cascade). Light bread but hops truly dominate and hides any malt aroma. Huge hop flavor, light malt sweetness in the mouth. Fully balanced toward the hops, high bitterness of average to high duration. Body quite thin as I feel it, may seems watery but itís not. Crisp dry finish still with hops bitterness. Soft carbonation. Gotta love the hops both in aroma and flavor!

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 11, 2004
Wonderfull hoppy aroma with notes of candy, lemon and other vague fruits. Pours a light copper brown, head is foamy and thick. Nicely balanced IPA. Hop bitterness lingers in the finish and becomes more pronounced as it warms up. An enjoyable beer.
