3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2005 A solid, refreshing alternative to mass produced pale lagers. A pleasant, mildly hopped aroma with a clear amber coloring, this brew slides down easily. It hits the spot anytime.

Sampled from 650ml glass bottle. Deep gold/orange pour. Head is resilliant white and thick. Hoppy nose, with spicey pine notes. Malty body with excellent bitter hop finish. My introduction to Cascade hops and American IPAs came from this beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Winking Lizard when this was glass of the month. Deep golden color, pretty fat head. Lots of classic west coast "C" hops in the nose. Body is nice and smooth, with a little bit of bubbly carbonation. Enough malt balance out those piney hops. Finishes clean. Nice APA.

Bottle. Big long lasting fluffy 2" head. Golden colour. Strong nose with more than just the Cascade hops. Malty, not overly sweet, balanced but strong hop flavour. Hops build in a nice long finish. I could drink a few pints of this.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Orange amber, white head. Grapefruit nose and malty notes. Lemon and other citrus are the predominant hop flavours hear, maybe a tad of roasty malts. Balanced, and tasty. Bottle.

Nice solid beer, great flavour, really a treat to drink. It’s hard to find in some places but worth it when you can find it. It is a great pale ale.

Pale golden with hints of orange. An OK head and lacing. Aroma of grapefruit and lemon, juicy hoppy palate is balanced by elegant malty sweetness. Superb.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer reminded me more like a spice/herb/vegatable than an IPA. Decent spicy, lightly hopped aroma. Appearance was very impressive. Off-white head lasted the entire time. Hazy peach, orange color. Flavor is well blended with hops, spices, yeast, etc. Good hoppy finish. Another solid Anchor beer.
