COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Anderson Valley Brewing Co. first opened in downtown Boonville on December 26, 1987. This was a dream come true for those wishing to savor high quality, flavorful and perfectly balanced beers. To celebrate our 20 years of continued success, we have created a unique beer. Our Imperial India Pale Ale is loaded with excessive amounts of malts and 20 seperate additions of the finest Pacific Northwest hops. We hope you find it most enjoyable!

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 23, 2013
A - Pours a brilliantly clear amber with 2 fingers of foamy white head. Very good looking. S - Fruity - pineapple, orange, and mango stand out the most. Faint caramel and pale malt. T - Follows the nose - pineapple, orange, mango, strawberries. Floral perfume, caramel malt is in the shadows along with some honey and alcohol. Clean citrus oil sits on the back of the tongue. Finishes dry and clean. M - Medium body, low side of medium carbonation. Alcohol is evident. Was alot of aroma coming of this beer. This drinks good but doesn’t really have a wow factor. Seems like the base of hop ottin. Serving type: bottle 12-11-2011

TarcisioVasco (131) - Ribeirão Preto (SP)., BRAZIL - MAY 20, 2013
Cerveja para quem gosta de sentir amargor dos lúpulos e também álcool no palato e retrogosto, complexa, divina tanto em garrafa quanto na pressão.

Botella. Muy buena presencia dorada con una corona compacta y persistente. Aroma ligero a pan, pino y hierbas. Sabor cítrico y resinoso con buena integración de las maltas dulces. Final largo seco y resinoso

355ml bottle. Hazy, light copper colored. Huge and long lasting white head. Sweet fruits, pine and grapefruit on nose. Fresh citrus, tropical fruits and little kick of alcohol on taste. Full bodied and fizzy palate. Enjoy it fresh! Its pretty good.

Benfi (566) - DENMARK - APR 30, 2013
Appearance: Dark orange, a little hazy, medium off white head. Aroma: hoppy, a little soapy, orange peel, malty, sweet. Bitter too. Flavour: Perfumey, super sweet, very hoppy, slick, sticky mouthfeel, definite alcohol presence, quite a bitter taste, all a bit unbalanced for me.

Grzesiek79 (3222) - Radom, POLAND - APR 25, 2013
Dobre, pachnace swiezymi chmielami, zbozem swiezo zebranym. Aromatyczne bardzo. Piekny pomaranczowy kolor piwa ze spora i trwala piana. Smak mocno gozki, troche przy tym takze slodowy ale przerozne chmiele w sporych dawkach zdecydowanie dominuja. Polecam bardzo bo to pijalne piwo.
