On tap at Franklins, Hyattsville on 14 July 2006. Not that much more to this than the APAs to be honest. The malt in the aroma is a bit sweaty and clammy but the hops are good again.

Sampled as the ale, although I have had the lager a few times at MASHOUT I think. Tap at Franklins- Pours a deep amber red mostly clear, with a tacky sticky head. Aroma is hoppy, sappy pine resin slight pink , coldsmokey- chinook and pine tar sharp crystal malts as well. Flavor is sharp toffee and big caramel malts under lots of green minty piney resinous hops- lots of chinook citrus, pine and harsh bitterness- yet is still really drinkable- similar to Arrogant Bastard - a bit more hoppy and more fresh here though. Nice. SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - JAN 16, 2010
From notes. Clear amber, off white carbonation. Mild aroma of toast, biscuit, caramel, cookie malt and bitter, earthy, piney, resinous hops. Flavor is similar and more impactful, mildly astringent in the finish. Medium/full body, carbonation is moderate yet a little biting. Okay. yobdoog (1888) - Kingston, New York, USA - AUG 31, 2009
Sampled June 28th. This version is cloudy dark reddish brown. Aroma is sweet and really nice. Caramel and some hops. Flavor is juicy sweet and hoppy. a bit of a lingering hops finish but not bad. l1br4r14n (451) - Rancho Cucamonga, California, USA - JUL 10, 2009
Draft at brewpub. What can I say... aroma is dry, hoppy and bitter. Flavor is more of the same. The body is nice and medium, but really not much going on with this beer.

Sampled on tap at the brewpub. This is a really hard beer to rate because they intentionally change the recipe every time. I actually like that concept though. This version was 7% abv and poured a hazy, orange with a whispy white head. Aroma is hoppy, grapefruit, pine, leoms, with a touch of grain. Flavor was mostly hops, more lemons, pine and grapefruit with also some crisp malts, crackers too. Bitter finish. Sessionable. bb (9519) - Alamo, California, USA - MAY 2, 2009
Draft. Amber beer with an off-white head. Grapefruit aroma. Grapefruit, pine, and a nice resiny flavor. Good bitterness. Medium bodied. Grapefruit and pine resin lingers. ben4321 (6547) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 10, 2009
I haven’t made a trip to Franklin’s in years, and I’m only about 20 minutes away, but back in the ’04-’05 range I tried a few different batches of this beer, and it usually ranged in the mid-3s, so I’ll give it the generic 3.5 for arguments sake...

Pours a darker honey with a foamy off-white head. Slightly sweet and citrusy aroma of Cascade hops. Very hop heavy flavor. You can feel the hop oils in your mouth. Lends to a creamy, mild malt base. Very smooth and only slightly bitter. Vas19 (313) - Maryland, USA - JAN 30, 2009
Anarchy ale on tap. Pours amber brown with off white head. Great Cascade hop aroma. Flavor is a lot of hops but remains balanced. Good fruit flavors. nice bitterness but not over the top. Hop heads would enjoy.
