COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Happy birthday to us! The beer you are holding, Anno Unum, represents a significant milestone - it is the first in what we expect to be a long line of Hess Brewing’s Anno-series birthday celebration beers. We opened our doors one year ago as San Diego’s first production nano-brewery and now we’ve poured everything we have into this bottle. You hold in your hand a beer that honors the tradition of craft brewing and exemplifies the reputation we’ve worked so hard to garner - a reputation for delicious, well-balanced craft brews. What is Anno Unum? Big. Belgian-Style. Hoppy. Unexpected. Uniquely Hess. It is, like everything we brew, Great Beer. No Exceptions. No Excuses. Belgian-style IPA made with Pilsner, Rye & Munich malts, Chinook and Falconer’s Flight hops, San Diego water, yeast and a whole lot of love.

Pours a nice orange amber with a frothy off white head. Nose holds dried citrus, oak and faint pine. Boozy on the palate but not overwhelming.

BMan1113VR (7820) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 31, 2012
Bottle thanks to one of the Mikes at Hess. Pours with a hazed golden hued body with a small white head that lasts. Aromas are fruity and hoppy: tangerine, vanillin, raw oak, belgian yeast esters and phenols, a bit of grapefruit pith. Dry. Flavors are tangerine, stone fruit, light tannic, bitter, low grainy malt, vanillin and oak. Light esters. Lively bubbles, dry with a slight alcoholic kick to the finish.

hopscotch (8783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 5, 2011
Bottle... Hazy golden ale with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The bouquet is a marriage of fuzzy fruits and spicy clove. Full-bodied and lightly creamy with stinging carbonation. The flavor is both hot and hoppy, offering spicy penols created by the Belgian yeast; peach and apricot essences, and acute hop bitterness. Finishes bitter and chock-full-of juicy, fruity peaches. Promising brewery, this one. Bottle courtesy of richiesd!

daknole (8862) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 8, 2011
Hazy orange pour. citrus hops, light caramel, some floral hops as well. Flavor is hoppy but not crazy bitter, fruity, malt backbone is nice. Good stuff!

brokensail (10547) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 31, 2011
A: The beer pours a cloudy orange color with a finger of white head. S: Not shockingly for an "Oaked Belgian Style IPA", the hops are sort of faded. A bit of sweet citrus and maybe a light floral note. Some sweet malt aroma as well as a touch of oak, yeast, and esters. T: The flavor is pretty much the same. A little bit more of the oak character with a light tannin feel to it. Some mild vanilla notes as well as hints of grapefruit and orange peel. Very little bitterness. M: Medium bodied with a medium carbonation. O: Too sweet and I don’t understand why brewers insist on continuing to age IPAs on wood.
