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.

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.

Bottled and part of a big order from beers of Europe to celebrate my 40th birthday
orangeish colour with a decent frothy off-white head. Nose is grapefruit, pine, biscuit and toffee. Nice malty taste balancing the american hops. Medium body, lively carbonation and dry, hoppy finish. Nice american pale ale.
