Bottle.This was a nice beer.The hops shine through both in it´s aroma and taste.Quite enjoyable. JonMoore (2067) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2004
Bottle. Small short lived head, no lacing, golden coloured, slightly cloudy. Hoppy aroma, hoppy bite, underlying malt, nice mouthfeel, with a nice bitter finish. Very good. jimmack (1223) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - JUL 5, 2004
Amber color with a fairly thick, off-white head. Aroma of the cascade hops dominate. I expected it to taste much
hoppier but there is a nice malt/hop balance. Very easy drinking. Sancho (245) - Da Bronx, New York, USA - JUN 30, 2004
Bottled from 207th street beer warehouse,Good hoppy scent a light orange color.the flavor in not as strong as other IPAs but very good overall. Kevin (2217) - Montana, USA - JUN 21, 2004
bottle. Orange color with a yellowish thick head. strong fruit hop smell. very strong nose. surprisingly smooth taste. not as hoppy as the nose suggests. a good use of malts to balance out this beer. it is very good. has a good fruit taste, with a hint of yeast??, and a well muted spice finish.

Another great Anchor beer. Nice deep brown color with a tan head. Strong hops on the nose with a very dry hoppy taste. Leaves you a little thristy (at least in 110 degree weather), but still a great beer. Falconseye8 (542) - Evans, Colorado, USA - JUN 18, 2004
This is a very good IPA. Very smooth, nice hoppy malty kick in between. Finishes well. Anchor is another great California beer producer. DocLock (11189) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2004
Pours orangish/dark straw, with a big white head and good lacing. Aroma of hops, malt, resin, oranges, and grapefruit. Tastes malty, very citrusy, with a nice hop presence, some fruit, spice, and floral notes. Very well balanced. jewedekind (450) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 9, 2004
I often have thought this to be the quintessential APA - even over Sierra Nevada. It still might be, but on this tasting it wasn’t, but still scores very high. Large, lingering, rocky, off-white head that leaves a doily of lacing. Honey and white pine nose. Deep golden yellow. Hops evident throughout with perfect amount of over-balance of biiterness-to-malt-to alcohol. DerBiermeister (586) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUN 9, 2004
It was immediately apparent that I had ordered a quality brew from its pleasant appearance, smooth hoppy taste and inviting aroma. It was the best beer I tried that night...
