Bottled September 1, 2011
A: Clear orange with a thich head and lace.
S: Fruity and flowery hops.
T: This beer is all about Nelson Sauvin hops. Pinapple and green grapes and flowers with some lemon and just a touch of pine on the finish. Some cracker-like malts do shine through when I look for them.
M: A bit undercarbonated.
O: This beer showcases the hops, but that hurts the balance and drinkability. However, this is a more drinkable and less perfumed beer than other beers that feature Nelson Sauvin hops prominently (viz. Kelso IPA).

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.
