Liberty Ale

Brewery: Anchor Brewing Company (San Fransisco)

Type: IPA

ABV: 5.9%

IBU: 47

Presentation: A GORGEOUS fluffy head.  I love that thick whipped white cap on the beer.  It speaks to the freshness for me.  And it hangs on the side of the glass.  Fresh active carbonation.

Thoughts: It’s immediate flavour is delicate and exciting.  Some very subtle orange and sour tanginess develop.. and the finale unfortunately is a hit of dry hoppy bitterness.  Ideally the bitterness wouldn’t linger as long as it does.  It goes from very good to good.  Steam was a better beer, this one has a lot of potential, but the long-slow acting bitterness didn’t leave me wanting more.
