4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From the bottle to me pint, poured a pleasant dark orange with a little haze , medium and quickly fading head. Aroma is of citrusy,floral, and clean-green hop smells. Taste is great! More on the bitter side with hoppy-herbal citrus and some yeast. Balanced with some sweet-smoothness and good natural carbonation. This is one good beer. Very unique , very fresh , and very drinkable. Nice use of cascade hops. I will be buying alot more of these tasty APAs from San Fran

aroma has nice sharp hops, but they don’t last long and what remains is a quite normal bitter pilsener

Bottle into lager glass. Small dense head. Translucent light amber color with swirling carbonation. Aroma is cheese, licorice, woody. Taste is lightly sweet upfront, a little licorice, salty finish. Palate is medium body, oily feel, lively, bitter finish. Not great, but not bad.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the LCBO. Pours a clear pale orange with a small white head that leaves some lace. Nose is Citrus and flowers and slight pine. taste is sweet malt and a good level of hoppy bitterness but there is an underlying metallic tang that is distracting. Medium slick mouth with average carbonation and a bitter finish. Not what I expected.

Toffee and malty with biscuits and a lovely lingering sweet bitter finish. Touch of sour fruit to make a great beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from saveur-biere.com. Clear golden to amber body with a beautiful big, long-lasting, creamy, frothy white head, that leaves a lot of lacing. Fresh aroma of citrus, peach, tropical fruits, flowers, pine, burnt sugar, some grass, some spices, some bread notes. Taste follows this seemlessly, sweet, citrus, grass, burnt sugar, some bread, some tropical fruits, some malt. The medium body has an oily texture and finishes with a smooth, bitter-sweet citrus. A prototypical modern age Pale Ale, crisp, refreshing and easy to drink, but still fully aromatic and complex. Perfectly balanced and smooth, as almost everything from Anchor Brewing. I just love this beer!

Shared a 33cl bottle from Cora (Luxembourg). Pours a lightly hazy golden colour with a white head. Aroma is light hoppy, but not much of it. Average carbonation and light body. Taste is bitter with a dry finish. Overall, a nice beer but I was expecting more.
