Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Brewed with Columbus, Amarillo and Simcoe and dry-hopped with Columbus, Amarillo and Citra (a new addition this year) hops, Anniversary Ale has pleasant tones of citrus and pine, a screaming hops presence and just enough malt character to add a hint of sweetness.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

On tap at the Map Room in Chicago, served in a snifter.

A- cloudy gold and amber, creamy thick two finger head.

S- incredibly fruity hops, crisp and sweet, no noticeable alcohol

T- bitter, piney front, sticky and resiny hop bitterness pervades, kinda surprised given how fruity it smells. A bit of malty sweet, but omg this is one hell of a bitter, dry, Hop bomb

M- drying and sticky, slight alcohol warmth, creamy carbonation, almost feels bottle conditioned

O- a lovely DIPA, intensely bitter hops. Not my favorite, as i have recently been leaning to a greater appreciation for fruity, tropical sweetness. For that reason, the smell is my favorite part of this beer.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours from a bomber, sunset orange with a half-inch off-white head which fades to the rim leaving irregular rings and splotches.

N: Big citrus, grapefruit, tropicals and floral. Dank and green freshies.

T: Resiny and oily pine with some orange peel and grassy/herbal notes. Hop Kaboom. Malts faint in attempt to balance. ABV present by not overwhelming.

M: Semi-full body and medium carbonation. Bitter and dry finish with a slightly sweetish and sticky finish.

O: A hop head's delight. Powerful lupulin presence.
