Nate (3806) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 2, 2003
Nice hoppy nose, hop oils and a bit of orange/citrus with honey undertones. Slightly hazy orange-amber with off-white foamy lacing head. Medium lively carb and heavy-medium watery body. Hops resins on the tongue but not overly bitter. Malts but no big sweetness - a tinge of yeast. Ascerbic mild bitter finish and after. A dependable, respectable offering.

Nice clean, fruity aroma. . . hazy orange. Solid hop presence, good citrus fruits and pine. Dry palate and a lingering bitter taste. Nice.

heykevin (1281) - Decorah, Iowa, USA - FEB 1, 2003
Extremely grapefruity, hop juice aroma. Malt is nice, sweetish, without being caramelly, counteracts the hopping nicely. Worthy of its status as an elder statesman of american IPAs

I've always viewed this as the bridge between American IPAs and English IPAs. It is very hoppy although not as insane as some other Americans. It has a citrus nuance suggestive of lemon rather than grapefruit.

my favorite part if this beer is that the hops are so citrussy, but not like most other citrussy IPAs, this one almost has a lemon zing to it rather than the typical grapefruit. leave it to the guys at anchor to find a way to be different. the aroma is full of those hops. the body is only strong enough to support all the hops as is the malt presence. this is a good example of american IPAs.

rodolito (163) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 28, 2003
Poured a clear yellowish-gold color with white head. Moderately hoppy aroma (floral and some resin). Citrusy, hoppy flavor with some light malt. Well balanced. Medium body, creamy and moderate carbonation.

foduck (330) - Denton, Texas, USA - JAN 27, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2003 Faint smoke aroma that fades for a belgian-like and hoppy aroma. I might have guessed this was some sort of Belgian bitter in a blind tasting. Quite fruity. Very nice IPA, crisp and hoppy but not too bitter. I rank this up there with Lagunitas, which I consider a different style of IPA.

elsberry (87) - North Carolina, USA - JAN 26, 2003
Nice copper color, a bit of the typical IPA yeast haze. Creamy head that lasted appropriately for the style. Crisp hop flavor and lemon and pine aroma, good body. This is a good beer in a bottle, even better on tap. Should be considered a standard for the style, as it demonstrates all the needed qualities of an IPA in good fashion.

UPDATED: MAY 24, 2003 Rerate: 24 May 2003. This beer is HUGELY different on draught versus in the bottle. The previous rating is for the bottle. I had it on draught today, it has a nice hoppy nose, w/ a flavor that started out creamy & finished hoppy. My rating reflects my original 'bottle' tasting b/c that's more widely available. However, if you can get it on draught, it's mroe like a 3.7... This is a *nice* IPA but nothing compared to the other IPA's available in California. It's readily available, so that's a plus.

A top quality Liberty-very fresh and well handled (learn to decifer the "bottled on" code on the back). Great combination of hops and fruit in the nose; dry flavor with what was once a big hop finish. Now that we've all been broken by drinking over-the -top beers, this is almost a session beer, but one of the best around. Mmm...
