Poured a cloudy, pale yellow with three fingers of bright white head. Smell is extremely intense and fresh with lots of galaxy hops, melon, and citrus.

Highish carbonation and a light, crisp mouthfeel. Blast of tropical fruit and melon up front with light floral notes and smooth wheat. Trace of oaky vanilla mixed with pepper, a tiny hint of funk, and a dry finish.

One of the best beers I've had. Extremely complex and delicious. Looking forward to trying their Love Buzz Saison soon.

(Batch# 5, July 2013), consumed March 15, 2014...poured from a 750ml bottle (corked & caged) into a Lost Abbey branded, 16oz, Rastal 2.0 Teku Glass.

A- First pour reveals a slightly hazy golden yellow with a 1-2 finger soapy, white head (second pour is much more hazy, courtesy of the bottle conditioning). Regardless, it looks amazing for being bottle conditioned. 5.0

S- Massive! Fruity tartness (Grapefruit, White Grape, Passionfruit), spice (from the peppercorns) and astringency courtesy of the oak aging from the foeder(s) all mingle effortlessly. Galaxy hops, oak aging and re-fermenting on brettanomyces makes for an absolutely perfect balance...Gabe Fletcher is a masterful brewer! 5.0

T- Despite the label of 50IBU's, it tastes much more bitter/hoppy than suggested. Like the IBU's, it also feels a but more than the 7.0% as stated on the bottle...complaining, I am not! The aroma, flavor and mouthfeel are absolutely perfect...I cannot fathom what this beer tastes fresh, but the amalgam of ingredients, the care aged on oak and the quality of packaging makes this nothing short of a world-class offering. I am nothing less than honored to have the ability to enjoy this multiple times and hope to continue the trend. 4.75

M- Firmly light on the palate. Strong carbonation (courtesy of the bottle conditioning) makes for a highly effervescent and rather soft experience on the palate allowing the bitterness to shine as courtesy from the hops, adjuncts and oak aging in equal amounts. 4.5

O- This is a MUCH bigger than stated on the bottle and does not disappoint in any regard. Anchorage is many miles away, yet continues to deliver their offerings as far as VT, and am nothing but impressed with everything I have sampled thus far (Galaxy White IPA, Bitter Monk, Darkest Hour). 4.75

Bitter Monk and Darkest Hour are more stupefying offerings from Anchorage Brewing Co. and encourage all who read this to investigate these brands.

I split a bottle of this with a friend tonight, 1/17/14. It was from batch #5, July/13. ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS. This brewery has yet to do anything but bow my mind. My only regret is that I don't live close enough to frequent the brewery. At least there is another bottle in the fridge I can drink tomorrow.

A: Poured a cloudy straw color with huge carbonation, big white fluffy head, good lacing, some floaters in the bottom. Exceptional!

S: Wow. Wheat, coriander, little spice, fresh lemon zest, the breet really shines with a moderate light horseblanket covered in barf with underlying peppercorns

T: Immediate peppercorn like heat/sting meet lemon zest, coriander, some wheat, the finish is rather dry, some bitterness, little bit of passion fruit, light sting. The brett brings a little funkiness towards the middle-end of the beer

M: Crisp, well carbonated for the style, light bodied

O: Very well done. Anchorage is fastly becoming one of my favorite breweries.
