UPDATED: SEP 5, 2012 Bottle poured at the Festival with andrew. Pours a murky orange body with white lacing. Aroma is dank herbal notes, fresh floral hops and light fruit. Mouthfeel is nice with notes of funk, fresh herbal hops, earthy tones, light fruit, oak, and brett. Another knockout by Anchorage.

Bomber poured into tulip. Pours one of the most beautiful golden Iíve ever seen! Head is about a finger-thick. Aroma is strong barnyard/brett, citrus, pepper, and a little woody (oak which contained white wine??). Hop is very well blended in this very complex IPA and is pretty floral. Taste is pretty all-bitter, with a medium-long finish. Body is lighter than I wouldíve expected after reading this beerís description. Texture is midway between thin and slick, carbonation is soft and fine. Overall: perhaps one of the most complex, if not the most complex IPAs Iíve ever had. You have to be open-minded for those barn-type aromas for this one. A really, really well done beer. Way to go Anchorage!

Smells like a hoppy Belgian -- Iíve done this before... Anyway, the body is a murky straw color, very lively at first. The head is white, big, and airy, then dissipates quickly to also leave no lacing. The flavor is spiced, woodsy, and semi-sweet. It feels airy and dry, almost chalky. Iím apparently not sophisticated enough to understand why this is an IPA at all. Itís a style-bender and I like it, but thatís about it. Itís something to pair with food if I buy it again so it has that limitation. This would be great if I could drink it as it is, like what an IPA is to me, but this isnít it.

hayduke (3380) - Eureka, California, USA - JUN 16, 2012
Got this corked and caged bottle at THE LOCAL Beer Bar in Eureka, CA, Shared it with a couple other folks including the proprietor who pronounced it very good. This poured a straw color with good sized white head that left good lacing. The first thing that greets you in the nose is the brett. Very powerful. Then you get lemon-grass, citrus, pepper, and some oak. Very lively aroma that promises a lot. Medium in body, with a very alive and impatient mouthfeel. The flavor is powerful, and led again by the brett, but there is a lot to smack the taste buds around, with lots of spices mixed in with the oak, lemon, and flowers. The finish goes on and on, being dry and nicely bitter. Very nice beer.

robinvboyer (3114) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 13, 2012
Cloudy, briht yellow pour, with an ample frothy white head. Thick aroma of citrus fruit, sharp spices, and some herbs. Mainly corriander, even some zesty like citrus i could qualify as a celantro aroma. The tartness seems to be missing from the aroma but it comes through in the middle and finish beautifully. Also some pepper mingles in the minish with a medium to high bitterness. Super refreshing, drinks dangerously well for 7%. great stuff!

Such an interesting and unique beer. Nose of Chardonnay and champagne yeast with orange. Pours a hazy brushed straw with nice white head thatlingers. Taste is such an interesting blend of chewy yeast, orange and Chardonnay. Nice bitter background. Dry finish. Excellent beer.

emacgee (4030) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUN 7, 2012
Shared by turdferguson. Cloudy pale/white pour withe two fingers of sticky white head. Nose is super peppery and spicy with lots of ripe/juicy tropical fruit. Mango and raw pineapple juice with notes of white pepper and light band-aid phenolics. Very spicy flavor with tons of fresh peppercorn and citrus rind. Raw fruit and fresh citrus as well with a phenolic character on the finish. Dry and zesty.

TURDFERGUSON (3954) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 7, 2012
Bottle from Hill Farmstead. Cloudy yellow golden with a thick white head. Big bretty nose, pineapple, mango, guava, oak, some white wine notes. Flavor is super tropical, more so than any IPA Iíve ever had. All types of tropical fruits, brett comes out more in the finish which is bone dry. Fuck yes. This is so fucking good. And, surprisingly, easy to drink. Anchorage continues to impress.

UPDATED: JUN 15, 2014 100th rating for this beer. Glad to do it. 750 ml bottle shared by Keir- thanks, Keir! Heís got the Alaskan hookup from his brother; this one hasnít hit STL yet. Pours a hazy pale yellow-straw color with a small fizzy white head that dissipates quickly. Bretty nose, with lemon, herbs, lemongrass, bread, peppery spice, and dusty wood. The flavor is dry and not as bretty, with straw, bread, herbs, lemon, pepper, and funk. Light-medium bodied, with a dry, crisp, and surprisingly bitter mouthfeel. Great mash-up. Re-Rate: Got another pour of this at Ei8ht Ball. Wow, this beer is so dialed in. Everything is perfectly in balance. Better than I recall. Upgrade time.

This is a mess. The funk and belgian notes donít work with the IPA at all. Iíve had a few belgians with a high hop that work but this isnít one of them and I suspect its the brett that really crashes the party. The sourness and the bitterness donít pair well at all.
