Hazy copper color with hoppy aroma. Nice fruity hoppy taste that has a good blend of sweet malts mixed in.Finishes sweet and dry. A good APA

Pourred a hazy light brown brew witn a nice foamy head with good retention. Nice aroma a strong hoppy taste (could it barley?). Definitely one of the best american pale ale and looking forward to other anchor products.

UPDATED: SEP 21, 2004 This beer can best be enjoyed fresh. Hoppy nose without any lacing. I used to love this, but not so much anymore. Still my preferred ale if I can find it draft.

I have to say, I bought this on a whim because I thought it had a cool looking bottle. I was very pleasantly surprised by the flavor and quality of this beer. I'm definitely looking forward to other Anchor beers.

One of my favorite session beers. Gotta love watching drunkin' frat boys squirm when they first experience the hoppy goodness

This is about as consistent as any beer gets, which is why I always seem to have some around. I can't really say anything that hasn't been said before, but I think of this before any other APA.

Medium offwhite head, bits of lacing. Hazy copper color.Good hop nose, citrusy,spicey. Medium body, lively carbonation. Good hop to malt flavor, some notes of bubblegumm also.Finish is dry and fruity. This was my first intro to IPAs, waaaay back when. I was blown away then. Now its not as impressive but still a fine example of an AIPA. A true American classic.

UPDATED: AUG 21, 2004 i have great memories of this beer, and had to check in again: great nose! the dry hopping is up front with out being in your face. a straight up ale, but some of us have moved on to the next level re rated and downgraded after a dissapointing draft pint at the Abbaye : thin, flat, weak hop presence

Hazy golden color, white head. Hoppy nose, slightly toasty. Flavor was hoppy again with a solid malt background. Finishes dry and bitter. Very good.

UPDATED: JUL 13, 2005 Nice and dry, tastes nice and smoky. Has a small head and a toasty taste. Has a great reddish, amber color. Finishes well. Aroma of grapefruit and some light pine. The taste has bread and toast with a little grapefruit bite. A solid APA stand by.
