12oz bottle. Poured out a clear, golden orange color with a small, white head of foam. It smelled of peach, apricot and sweet caramel. Tasted slightly peachy with a toasted caramel backbone.

The beer pours out a full on hazy golden orange color, with 2 fingers of white head----------- the aromas are of citrus, pine and stone fruit(light aroma)------------- the flavors are of pine, peach, grapefruit, orange pith and apricot, the beer has a medium mouthfeel with a dry overly bitter finish------------------- overall this was just a mediocre fruited ipa, the aroma was to light and the finish was to bitter

pours a semi opaque golden hue with a massive and persistent white head. ton of retention in this brew. i pick up anchor yeast and hay, plus hints of stone fruit and something peppery on the nose. softer attack than the traditional go west IPA, but i wouldn't call this juicy in the way the NEIPAs tend to be. light bitterness on the finish.

Hazy amberish brew with plenty of foam in the Orval chalice. Light and sudsy in the mouth but quite malty. Aroma is quite modest with a nose of something fruity. The actual apricot taste is tart and distinct. I don't know what kind of hops they used, but seems incongruous to have a nondescript herbal astringency instead of something fruitier. There is just something like wood ashes here that compromises any pleasure in the fruit.

Well, I don't know that this is going to goose Anchor's reputation. It seems like another whacky item slapped up to see if it sticks. I wouldn't say it's better than even Pyramid Apricot though it seems to try for more complexity. Rather more bitterness in the aftertaste than necessary. From the 12 oz bottle purchased at Central Market in Washington state.

Bottle poured into a Mountain Rambler Brewing Co pint glass

A: Pours golden amber with a frothy off white head that settles to a firm layer and laces quite nicely.

S: Stone fruit, floral notes, slightly herbal, biscuity malt, and caramel sweetness.

T: Plenty of stone fruit, peach, apricot, faint melon, floral, slightly herbal, a slight tartness, biscuity malt, and caramel sweetness.

M: A bit on the lighter end of medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: I like the idea, but I still haven't found an Anchor IPA that I'm much of a fan of.

Tried this at the brewery and I liked it. It wasn't as fruity as I thought it would be but it was juicy. Our tour guide, Jon said it would be available in all 50 states and was just released the week before my tour on 4/22. I'll be looking for it in Texas and revisit my rating/review.

Taste: juicy herbal hops, apricot, peach notes, tart finish. Fermented stone fruit nose. Gold, mostly clear, white head with ring of lace in nice lattice. Medium/light body. Maybe I did not get served a fresh batch.
