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

Brewed to celebrate 27 years of the pioneering of the craft beer movement, this beer is an American Style IPA with a distinct Sierra Nevada twist; a generous amount of Cascade hops to produce a big fragrant pine and citrus hop aroma, which is balanced by the sweetness of two row pale and caramel malt, and finished with additional Cascade dry-hopping for good measure. Anniversary Ale is a medium-bodied, well-hopped ale that finishes with a slight malt sweetness. Released August 2007, 2008, and 2009; same beer.

Poured into a pint glass.

Prior to pouring, I had no idea what type of beer this was going to be. The bottle does not let on and I like that. After pouring, my initial sniff brought up aromas of honey, grapefruit, and pineapple - absolutely wonderful. An assertive, bitter hoppiness dominates the palate at first with a touch of oiliness. This is followed by a really enjoyable grapefruit juice/rind flavor that finishes crisp. There is a good amount of carbonation that offsets the hop oil well making the mouthfeel enjoyable. Sierra Nevada is a company that seems to always put out good beers of high quality. This is no different - an easy drinking American IPA with a moderate alcohol content making it easier to have more than 1 in an evening. Highly recommended.
