Pours with a 2 finger white head that leaves crazy lacing all the way down the glass, the body is a pale golden color thats crystal clear. The smell is raw, herbal/medicinal hops with a mildy sweet, honey-like malt backbone. The taste is quite complex (as expected from anchor) starts with an earthy hoppy flavor that coast the mouth with a resiny hop oil, and continues with sweet honey like malt taste. The malt taste is almost like doughnuts, and ends with a bitter, grassy and floral hops finish that lingers on your tongue briefly, you really get some complex hop flavors here with a spicy flavor that follows a fruity citrus like taste. The hops definately outshine the malt here but what did you expect from an APA, from the west coast no less. The mouthfeel is smooth and light with moderate carbonation. An excellent APA, really showcases that western hops flavor well without overdoing it. Could be a great session brew as the alcohol hides itself fairly well.
