Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass, coded bottle date. This poured a hazy light yellow color with a massive white head which leaves a lacing. The smell is of citrus maybe a little lemon. The feel is medium to thin with a mouth coating bitterness. The taste is pretty good, lemon, other citrus, some malts with a slightly bitter after taste (average for an APA)

Serving type: bottle

Great tour at Anchor Brewing Co. and this was one of my favorite tastings, I have to say hoppy type of beer very very smooth to savor. I was also spoiled enough to have a freshly made pour, so that is definitely how all beer should be consumed in beer heaven. It was almost fruity tasting. I need some of this on tap or draft so please advice when I can get it aside from the Headquarters. fyi, from a bottle it's alright but definitely reminiscent of the goodness.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Pours a dark golden, slightly orangey color, and a small white head which quickly disappears.
The aroma is my favourite, although slightly weaker than I'm used to - citrusy hops dominate the smell.
The taste starts neutral with a slight bitterness, slightly fruity, and finishes with a strong spicy taste, which also stays in the aftertaste.
Very nice ale, although I have a feeling, nothing really extra rememberful.
