Pours transparent orange with large white head and considerable lacing. Aroma is definitely grassy citrusy hops. Flavor is Deliciously balanced with some malts and a relatively long bitter finish. A very tasty APA, possibly one of my overall favorites, I think.

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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
