A-Translucent orange,one finger head that tries to leave behind some lacing but just can't seem to.

S-Some spices, wheat. Similar to nose to some of DFH's ancient ales.

T-Sweet spices, grassy notes. Decent amount of bitterness.

M-Light and semi-carbonated.

O-A well made APA, more earthy than other APAs I can remember but still a pleasant beer.

3.48/5  rDev -6.7%
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.

Very tasty, very unique beer. The nelson sauvin hops were a good choice, really good that they used it for glittering as well as aroma.

Anchor are truly artisans with this offering, pours hazy golden with a nice foamy head, nice spicy notes, good use of balance in the ingredients. I wish they brewed this year-round.

3.59/5  rDev -3.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a hand glass.

A: Slightly hazy golden hue. Pours a 2 finger, frothy, white head. Craters slowly and unevenly, leaving a cratered surface and dry residue behind. Pervasive lacing.

S: Soft hop notes, sourdough bread.

T: Crisp hops, strong bitterness, yeast, grapefruit pith, and a little fruit sweetness.

M: Very crisp, a little thick, pungent finish remains on the palate.

D: Sip and savor, especially due to bitter character.

Atmosphere is really nice. Thick, frothy head, and lots of persistent lacing. Nose is piney and doughy. Piney hops with characteristic citrus pith and a bit of a yeasty character balanced with a slight fruity sweet note. Overall, this is a good quaff.
