Itís an ok beer, not Anchorís best imho. Itís a nice hoppy and somewhat funky fruity (citrus) beer, but it doesnít really stand out. Since itís not a cheap beer over here i donít see the value of it compared to other similar options.

Im Glas hell, ordentlicher Schaum, tolles Aroma, Citrus und Orange. Im Trunk sehr weich, verhšltnismšŖig mild, Citrus, im Abgang ganz leicht bitter. Lecker, aber mir nicht kantig genug. Gut zum Wegtrinken.

Oldschool_Mike (108) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 25, 2015
Bottle into IPA glass. Pours a clear light copper colour with a finger of white head. Aroma is bright citrus from the cascade hops. Taste is light malt with nice grapefruity bitterness. Excellent beer. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

Muggus69 (1308) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JAN 17, 2015
355mL bottle from Beer Cartel BB 05/2016 Pale gold body, slight haze, holds a tight white head. Decent intensity nose; pine, grapefruit rind, grassy hops, touch of peach & toasty sort of malt. Medium body, quite dry textually, moderate slightly creamy carbonation. Starts with a touch of toasty, light caramel sweetness, palate continues with grassy, woody hops, touch of peach & citrus rind, drying out with a firm bitterness. Reasonable APA, seems a touch different from most, textually perhaps? Different yeast perhaps? Unique in a sense, lacking the complexity of better examples though.

Dacrza (559) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - JAN 16, 2015
DATE TASTED: January 16, 2015... GLASSWARE: Kisatsky Tavern pint ... OCCASION: a good week done... APPEARANCE: a storm of effervescent bubbles whirl violently below an absolute dreamy cloud of thick white head; hazy orange amber in color; lacing is ribbed and substantial... AROMA: sharp orange peel; some sugarlike cookie, vanilla, grapefruit and spring flowers... PALATE: creamy at the lips; slight pings of sourness at the teeth; effervescent but swift to the throat; light and mega-sessionable ...TASTE: citric flavors of grapefruit and lilac, orange and vanilla make this already a winner; the malt settles nicely, providing balance...OVERALL: why so long to revisit this most perfect example of the genre--as refreshing and flavorful as a pale ale can be...

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tumbler on 05.09.14. A: 1 finger head with an aggressive pour. Crystal clear orange. S: Biscuity malt, citrus. T: Caramel is first, then sweet citrus. Bitterness on the back end, then lingering sweetness again. M: Crisp. O: This one is a classic IPA. Itís not at all hop heavy in comparison to the IPAs of today. Itís simply subtle and refreshing. The malt seemed more dominant than the hops, which is weird now, but it comes from a different time. It was a great gateway into IPAs for me.

mecafilo (114) - Perugia, ITALY - JAN 10, 2015
Bottle @ home. Pours with a clear orange colour, big long lasting rocky white head. Aroma is medium malty, medium hoppy, with lots of hoppy notes: hops in this beer seem to have been used mainly for their aromas, more than for their bitterness; the results are hints of flowers, resin, grass and hay; very interesting, even though it might be balanced a little bit better. Taste is little to medium sweet, little to medium bitter, slightly sour, slightly salty. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation.

Hopmaestro (257) - ÷rebro, SWEDEN - JAN 5, 2015
Aroma is pleasant and pretty strong from Cascade hops. The taste is well balanced and laidback. Modest taste of grass, hay and peaches. Light body. Actually it is a perfect beer, and I would never turn it down if Iím offered one, but it lacks that "ooomph!!" that I crave from my pale ales to be a real contender.

It's a beer. It has a lot of flavor in the malt and hops but I almost wish it didn't. Teeters between really good and not good depending on the drink which probably speaks to the strong ingredients. I'll pass on re drinking this; it's flavorful but not my flavor each drink. Bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle poured into a tumbler. Clear dark yellow / amber appearance. Little white head. Fruity nose. Taste is similar, aporicot, mandarie, orange, peaches... Some nice hops in the aftertaste. Very drinkable beer. Iíd swap this for the usual European lagers anytime.
