Hazy peach. Foamy white head. Slow, big bubbled carbonation. Perfumed aroma of grapes, floral hops and mild citrus rinds grated into pine sap. Initially soft and supple with a gentle carbonation and mild crispness. Floral and citric/pine hops are adequate but not as explosive as I remembered. Mellow, easy drinking. Medium body. Pale malt balance with a hint of honeyed sweetness. Uncommonly facile and a pleasure to drink. Finishes with pine needle hop burps and a richer body and overall hop profile. Faintly fruity at the end as well. A classic worth revisiting.

nice golden copper hue. Frothy white head, with moderate lacing. Cascade hops shine through on the piney floral nose.Nice body in mouth, good carbonation. Light sweet malt in the middle, with a crisp bitter hoppy finsh. Anchor is always wonderful, and highly recommended.

This is the finest pale ale in the world (yes fellow quaffers, I’ve sampled many a pale ale, including Duvel and many, many others). Quality ingredients and bottle conditioning allow the incredible delicate flavor to escape unscathed in the trip out east. Pours with a huge head – fun to watch it settle into a rocky moonscape. Usually provides slight flowery hop notes with gentle bitterness; then some licorice, then the malt rumbles through. Lingering unique aftertaste is very pleasant and refreshing. Dead on consistency over the years; much more than can be said about other American pale ales, including Sierra Nevada and Hop Devil. BTW, the date of bottling code is terrific and should be emulated by every serious brewer -- would a winery sell undated Chardonnay?

Drank on draught in the brewery’s taproom. Dark golden color with a rocky, white head. Beautiful floral, hoppy nose. Fruity, hoppy flavors evident.

Nice head to start. A solid malt body with rounded hop bitterness and aroma--not too strong. Fruity and tart, with slight medicinal notes. I am having trouble finding Cascade hops in here??

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2003 Beautiful orange colour. Nice head. Very fruity (grapes) and hoppy aroma. Flavour is flowery (elderberries?) and somewhat sweet (drops) which is very well balanced by the long hop bitter finish.

DrBeer (829) - Solna Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 29, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2005 Orange beer with OK head. Aroma with citrus, dried fruits, apricots and a little merengue and spices. Spicy flavor with oatmeal, hops and a hint of blue cheese. Pretty massive finish.

I love IPA’s so read on with a grain of salt. It is really hard to believe that this is a SanFransisco beer. Great bitterness, great color. The hops are played out to the hilt while still being a great drink. Starts bitter, finishes bitter, but never sour or tart. A non bloating beer that keeps you thirsty for more. Move over Brittania there’s a new ’Queen’ of IPA’s and ’she?’ hails from SanFransisco CA.

Nice smooth beer with a good amount of hops, good citrusy hop aroma. A little boring, but a solid brew.
