Pours a rich dark orange color with a soapy, sticky head. The aroma has caramel malts as well as a flowery, piney hop. In the taste, well balanced ale with pine, grass, and slight grapefruit going along with a firm, toasted caramel malt base. Medium to full body with spot on medium high carbonation. Overall, this is a solid beer I would not mind drinking on a warm summer day.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 1.5

12 oz bottle. Pours golden copper with a huge creamy off-white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is odd - leathery plasticky malts with some sweet caramel, green apple and some floral perfumey hops.

The flavor is sweet crystal malts with some odd apple fruit and a lot of floral hops. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, I didn't care for this - green apple and floral perfumey hops.

An IPA from Anchor? Never thought I would see that day.

More robust on the pine characteristics than I would have anticipated. Nice malt body with an equally firm hop influence with a bit of a spicy kick with the pine as the main feature. Not too bad, really. Though with so many IPAs out there on the market, there's a lot of competition and this one will fall to the side a bit, I'd imagine. If only Anchor had put this beer out several years ago before the market became flooded.
