This is truly a terrific IPA. Thanks to phnphilly for sharing it with me.
Appearance: Pours a clear amber gold with a very thick foamy off whit head and nice lace.
Smell: A terrific floral aroma loaded with west coast pine aroma's and citrus grapefruit, sweet toasted biscuity caramel malt base.
Taste: The beer is very balanced with sweet fruity attributes and citrus pine hops. It starts with a bready sweet caramel malt, wood and touch of apricot followed by a beautiful grapefruit and green grassy bitter hop flavor. Excellent.
Mouthfeel: Smooth medium body that has a lively crisp hop bitterness on the cheeks and a dry finish and aftertaste.
Drinkability: The excellent balance and yet bold flavors make this a very easy drinking beer. I wish I had a case of Anniversary Ale (2007) or more.
Hope this is helpful.
