A massively hopped strong pale ale brewed to celebrate our anniversary each year. Anniversary Ale is light gold to pale orange in color and offers a potent aroma of fresh pine and citrus with some warming alcohols present.The taste is a thick, chewy hop presence only barely contained by balancing malts. The finish is pure hop expression with a moderate warming alcohol sensation. Hops – Columbus, Amarillo and Simcoe; dry-hopped with Columbus and Amarillo. Body – Medium.
Availability – Late Spring / Early Summer Release. Ranges from 10%-11% ABV.

Bottle. Again this is almost one year old so not the freshest, but still has more hops than their 2nd Anniversary Ale. Pours a nice cloudy dark orange color, with a nice frothy white head that leaves some solid lacing. Aroma is quite hoppy, with a decent amount of citrus, grapefruit ,and also tropical fruits (not as much pineapple as in the 2nd Anniversary though). It is also quite malty with alot of caramel malts. The flavor is fairly hoppy with a decent amount of grapefruit and also pine. I also get some tropical fruits and faint peach. It has alot of caramel malts and also some alcohol, but not as much as in the 2nd Anniversary Ale (even though this is heavier). The body is medium, with a fairly dry mouthfeel and a decent amount of carbonation. Overall a pretty good DIPA, and you can definitely taste that it is fresher than the 2nd Anniversary. But i would love to try the upcoming 4th Anniversary fresh!

Bottle at Dutch RB meeting, thanks for sharing skortila! Pours a hazy orange with a thin white head. Aroma of hoppy citrus, grapefruit and pine. Very nice flavor with loads of bitter hops, grapefruit and citrus. Slightly sweet but a very bitter finish. Great brew.

Okay aroma and appearance. This beer makes up for it in it’s hoppy flavor, tasty & everlasting palate. Overall, a highly recommended beer for those reasons and it’s 10 percent.

Pours orange with slight haze and white medium sudsy head. Aroma is honey, sweet malt, and piny hops. Flavor is sweet malt and honey up front with very bitter pine hops in the finish. Nothing ground breaking for an IIPA, but solid - classic west coast hop profile and bitterness.

Pours a dark golden well carbonated color. Aroma of bananas . oily hops and sweet bread very nice. Creamy hop flavor not overwhelming. Light fruity flavors with a nice malty touch. Palate is non-discript but earthy. Very drinkable, happy 3rd.
