It poured clear, amber with a little orange. Head was moderate with lots of lacing. Looked great! The scent is floral slightly heavy on the citrus and a little piney in the nose. You can tell it was dry-hopped. The taste is hoppy with light carmel malt in the back. The mouthfeel lighter but stil full, and helped by carmel sweetness. It’d be easy for this to have a strong bite due to the dry hopping but this brew seem to find a perfect balance. Yummy and very drinkable. shrubber85 (11508) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 12, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2005 Bottle - Sweet cherry malt and hops aroma and amber color with moderate head. Flavor primarily hops and light sour malt. Hops are well-balanced - doesn’t come across too bitter. A re-rate but I didn’t change my opinion too much. BJM8 (17) - USA - OCT 11, 2004
Nothing bad to say about this beer...it was o.k. Certainly not one of the best IPA’s out there, and not as hopped as advertised. dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 11, 2004
On tap at the Tatoverede enke in Copenhagen. Good off-white head, aroma is slight citrus fruity. Rich taste, very well balanced, good carbonation. This beer was very good with a meal, easy and very pleasurable to drink. I was quite impressed. IndianaRed (4879) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 7, 2004
Bottle Pours a a medium slightly hazy pale amber with a very large foamy off-white head. Very faint aromas of grain, yeast and citrusy, floral hops. Flavors are mostly hops but deep and fairly rich malty taste as well. Feel is quite thick and hefty with a soft carbonationAftertaste is smooth and mellow but the hops are what stays up front. An easy drinking IPA

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2009 This is a pretty decent IPA. Hoppy with a bitter aftertaste--looks pretty nice in color and an OK brew on tap. Check it out, if you’re an Anchor fan.
Re-rate: 2009 bottle. Appears light amber with a strong head that disappears after 2-3 sips. Tastes hoppy with a floral lightness that is refreshing. Would not drink a lot of these at one sitting, but very enjoyable. cathcacr (647) - Oregon, USA - SEP 28, 2004
I just had this back to back with an Arcadia IPA . . . verrrry similar. Mild for the style, thoroughly pleasant. Really nothing bad to say about this one. Orange-amber color, nice head, retention and lace. Soft on the palate, some sweetness on the finish, just really well-balanced. Either this is overrated or the Arcadia IPA is really underrated. I’ll go with the latter proposition. davidflores99 (225) - Signal HIll, California, USA - SEP 27, 2004
I was pretty impressed by this brew. It poured a golden color, and had a nice creamy thich head. Aroma was hoppy and citrusy, as well as the flavor. This is a nice IPA. dirkules (629) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 23, 2004
This is good a good IPA. Creamy Gold with a nice head to top. Solidly malty with a floral aroma. Citrus and bitter taste on top of a smooth and somewhat sharp palate. Very Good! hershiser2 (3538) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - SEP 20, 2004
Golden with a large head. Smells hoppy, bready, with hints of flowers. Taste is bitter, hoppy, and soapy- not the greatest IPA I’ve had, but not a snoozer either. Mindblowing mouthfeel.
