COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Originally brewed in 1975 to commemorate Paul Revere's ride, this brew is a heavily hopped ale (Cascade hops) with a copper color and a hoppy nose.

Voivod (304) - Como, ITALY - MAR 30, 2003
Pale amber colour, thin, but creamy and persistent head. Hoppy aroma with some floral hints. The flavour is delicate, malty, quite sweet and spicy, really pleasant. The aftertaste is very hoppy, with a perfect balancement between the sweet and the bitter flavours. Incredibly fresh and pleasant, a beer that will never make me feel bored.

nicely hopped nose with hints of lemon, cloudy orange colour with a small white head, gin-like taste with traces of lemon, sour, hop undertones, dry oily finish

LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - MAR 25, 2003
Either I could smell the hops 2 feet from the glass or I was hallucinating. Nice clear color, long lasting white head. Initial taste is great, but the aftertaste was a bit stale. A little less full-bodied and flavored than I had hoped.

humulus (339) - Salem, Missouri, USA - MAR 24, 2003
Where to start? Every time I take a drink I am entranced by the amazing bouquet of fruity hops, sweet caramel and flowery nectars. The flavor starts sweet then turns subtly dry with complex flavors so well balanced that no single component overshadows the others. There is fruit, caramel sweetness, malty musk and mildly tantilizing hops. I must sip every drop and ensconce my mouth with each molecule of this intoxicating beverage. Large swallows seem such a waste. Warms all the way down. Not hoppy enough to be an IPA. This brew is true to it's Anchor family in having that unique taste, that hint of something that makes Anchor so original.

Silphium (3188) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 22, 2003
An IPA? Come on! This one is a barleywine light, no question. The aroma is sugary sweet, with a floral, malty touch. Hops are present but are spare for this to be a true IPA. Instead, this beer is dominated by sugary malts, and drinks much like Dogfish Head Immort Ale. Not an IPA, but an excellent choice if you're looking for a barleywine without such a high alcohol percentage.

coopec (20) - Portland, Connecticut, USA - MAR 18, 2003
Awesome IPA (although I would like to see a bit more bite in the front) very well round with hoppy bite smoothed by sweet malty middle and another hop kicker towards the end. Great in bottles, Outstanding on Tap (thank you Eli's!)

Braudog (5978) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 9, 2003
Poured with great poofy head on top of an orange, golden beer. Nice floral noce. Beautifully rounded, sweet lightly hoppy beer. A bit more bitterness and this would be even more awesome. Outstanding beer.

Ingevara (842) - SWEDEN - MAR 7, 2003
Mmm, an american beer with aroma! But there is a bit too much sugar, and not enough bitterness. Where are the hops? But anyway... not bad.

I didn't like the smell. It was initially flavourless, then bitter. A nice partner with my husband's curry.

golden orange pour with a nice thick head that faded quickly. floral aroma that was a little weaker than i'd like. hoppy (although certainly not *heavily* hopped) with a slightly bitter finish.
