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.
