The aroma is fruity, the color is amber and slightly unclear, and it has a small head. THe flavor is malty with the characteristic Anchor yeast, with notes of fruitiness and a good light bitterness. It prickles the tongue slightly. A really good beer.

12 oz. squat brown Anchor bottle. Poured out a deep copper color, with a massive, white head. It slowly faded to reveal a really wonderful beer. Malt aromas galore, along with plenty of Cascade hop aromas, and flavors. Slightly subdued, however. Not over the top like so many other American IPA's. Rich mouthfeel to it, along with some great tasting malts. Spicy, grapefruit like hops bite to it, along with the classic aftertaste of Cascade hops. Easy drinking, and pleasing to the eyes. A classic American IPA in my book.

Flipbrewer (33) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 6, 2003
Classic APA (or IPA depending on how you interpret the specs). Lots of complex flavors and aromas without hitting you over the head like some of the current craftbrewed APA-IPAs (not a bad thing but sometimes my palate craves something less...big). In other words, relatively drinker friendly but with enough complexity to satisfy a discriminating palate.

A wonderful hoppy smell seduces you as you open the bottle.Lovely, lingering hoppy flavours tantalise your taste buds.To my mind a great beer not only has flavour and a great apperance -it is also unique and easily identified.This beer has all those attributes.

Ok, even though there's some dispute whether all the Paul Revere stuff was made-up, this beer certainly is REAL for ME! Smells really nice, looks on the pale side, but the taste is right there! Not TOO hoppy to be sticky. A great drinking brew!

Smells great! Sweet honey and NW hops. Straw colored, high carbonation. Tastes very sharp and hoppy, great bitterness. I wonder what the IBU count on this is like? A very nice APA.

Dark gold colour, and a big frothy head. very nice sweet aroma and yeast. Great hoppy flavour, some fruit citrus too.

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2003 Reminds my of anchor steam, WHICH IS A GOOD THING. As far as I'm concerned, Anchor Brewing Co. can't come out with a bad beer. Malty nose, slight citrus notes. You can taste the hops in this beer but it isn't out of control. Nice subtle hoppy finish. This is an awesome session ale.

Dorwart (2485) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JUL 25, 2003
UPDATED: APR 10, 2005 Nice thick head which lasts for a while. Excellent carbonation. Wonderful aroma dominated by hops with a light citrus/apricot overtone. Second time around a slight aroma of cat pee in there also but somehow does not really detract form the aroma. Slightly herbal also. Color is a somewhat thin golden orange. Flavor is zesty with plenty of hops to go around. Again somewhat herbal. Finish is crisp and bitter with a nice bitter aftertaste. A very good pale ale that will be enjoyed by a wide range of people. Another quality product from Anchor Brewing.

EKGoldings (619) - Radford, Virginia, USA - JUL 25, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2007 The grandfather of the highly Cascade hopped American Pale ale style. A classic American beer with zesty citrus, malt and hop bitterness and great aroma hops (especially if you like Cascades). Some of the newer APAs have surpassed the hop levels, but this is the pioneer and, although it is not the leader it once was, is still a very well crafted and delicious beer.
