A hoppy flavor, yet somehow not as good as most hoppy beers. Lacks any real zing or bite. Normal Anchor is still the best in my book.

Bottle. Poured clear, amber-orange with a large white head that diminished rather quickly to a ring of bubbles around the rim. Aroma of sweet malts, perfume, citrus, clove and floral hops. Flavor is fruity malts and a variety of hops, citrus, spicy and floral with a lingering dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2014 Red color with a slightly fruity scent. Very smooth and not too carbonated. Slight bitterness and a little sweet. Overall, a great pale ale.
Not what I remember it being. Very piney and no citrus. But still good.
Rerate over nine years later. Old world bitterness. Pine and plastic. So so
