Notes/Commercial Description:
Using Columbus, Amarillo and Simcoe hops and dry-hopping with Columbus, Amarillo and Citra, Anniversary Ale has an intensely hoppy body with fresh tones of pine and citrus. A seasonal release that will satisfy any hop-head who has the pleasure to try it. In addition, we don’t want to make people “wait in line” to try an amazing IPA, so we also bottle it!

Cloudy, orange-dirty gold color. Modest head but plenty of blanketing lace. Attractive.

Some pine, some grapefruit and a pale malt base best describes the aroma of this brew.

The flavor is strongly bitter but with a floral touch. The malt, while diminished, is lightly sweet from the gentle toasting of the malt. Some warmth from the alcohol in the swallow. The finish is biting pepper with a long aftertaste. Great body and a low effervescence. A hop lovers beer, in short.
