12 ounce bottle- pours a cloudy gold with a moderate white head. The entire story of this ale is hops, hops and more hops. They dominate the aroma and the taste. The citrus bite is very IPA. Palate is fairly thin, bet appropriate to the style. Okay.

Bottle at home. Clear golden with short lasting white head that leaves some nice little islands. Very flowery, soap, milk, basil, mint, grass. Lots of fresh herbal notes, but with a musty malt base. Light sweet and bitter.
Medium bodied with slick feel.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
355 ml. bottle. BBF 06/2017. Clear golden, touch orange, decent creamy white head. Nose is dull oily, grainy, stale citrus candy, butterscotch, oily, faintly mineral, old bread. Grainy, dull bread, oily, old stale candy, touch butterscotch, little hop, rather bland, bread, light dried orange, mineral, lightly metallic. Carb is a dash high. Pretty dull & lacking much character. Anchor dates way, way back (oldest still functioning USA specialty brewer if I am not mistaken), they were craft before craft existed & this recipe appears to date back to 1975. They deserve points for many things, unfortunately this one comes across as dull & touch lacking compared to modern varieties. It tastes actually a bit like an old bottle of a newer style USA specialty beer despite being quite fresh looking at the BBF date.
