This crystal-clear, bright gold beer pours with a pretty good, dense head on top of it. The nose is disappointing: there are some clean, very dry grassy hops in the aroma, but little else; not a hint of malt, or yeast character, or anything else. The taste is slightly better, but malt makes up almost nothing of this beer. It's very dry, very well-attenuated, and offers a one-dimensional hoppiness, with moderately high bitterness and hop flavor that is not particularly interesting.
Stick with their venerable Liberty Ale, for a solid hoppy beer. It has far more interest than this undistinguished offering.

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.

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.
