UPDATED: JUL 5, 2012 From the bottle.

Pours a light golden amber with an limited head. The aroma is all cascade hops - floral, slightly dusty hops with notes of pine; some cracker malt comes through as well. The flavor is very dry, none of the sweetness in many IPAs, just cascade hops with a slightly sour twist, yeasty tones, and enough backup from light cracker malts to keep a good semblance of balance. The finish is pure hops of modest intensity but fine bitterness. The mouthfeel is somewhat watery with abundant, almost stinging, carbonation that I would prefer to see toned down somewhat.

This is a reasonable APA, but not as aromatically hoppy as I remember.

Six years old (2006 bottle in 2012). Yuck. Tons of sediment, off flavors. Drainpour. This was an experiment that didnt work. Not worth aging, at least not for this sort of duration.

Bottle from Cask and Glass, Tonbridge, Kent. Reddish brown ale with beige head. Good tasty fruity malt with extremely fragrant hops that come and kick you in the finish. Nice beer.

Great copper color. Fruity and flowery nose. Unbelievably nice palate for a Pale. Blends the tastes together well with a creamy mouth feel. Nice hops taste but not overpowering. I love Anchor products.

Thin white head, gorgeous rich canary color. Strong citrusy hop aroma and faint cedar. Head like Ivory soap. Palate is awesome and weighty. Slight foamy lacing.

Amber beer with a small white head and a bit of lacing. Aroma is pale malt and hops. Smooth malty flavor with some fruitiness and a strong hoppiness. Apricot and grapefruit. Plenty of malt to carry the intense hoppiness. Smooth and round in flavor. Im not a fan of the style but this is enjoyable. A well crafted offering from Anchor.

Light copper colour with some cloudiness. Aroma is soft: some light malt and hops. Small-average size head with good lacing. Flavour is slightly sweet and moderately bitter: well balanced. Medium body with lively carbonation. Almost has a Belgian-style aroma and flavour.

Hazy apricot body. Not much head on this one. Aroma and taste had definite notes of apricot. The hoppiness actually caused my tongue to tingle pleasantly. Very enjoyable especially considering the dry hopped bitterness.

Poured hazy and attractive with appropriate head. Grainy but fruity smell. Very nicely bitter. Medium bodies palate. Flavor is also grainy/yeasty with a fruity hint. At one point the thought of root beer even jumped into my head. Something there I cant put my finger on. Very enjoyable.

12 oz bottle pours golden with a sudsy white head that has good retention. Aroma is light citrus grapefruit and grassy hops with a touch of grain behind it. Flavor is sweet caramel topped with crisp citrusy grapefruit hops. Crisp and clean on the palate this is a nice pale ale. Very drinkable on a hot summer night.
