I had an Anchor IPA last night and I must say I was anything but impressed. I remember when Anchor Liberty Ale was considered an IPA and it was a darn good one. Then over time the beer seemed to slip down into the realm of a pale ale. This new variant just didn’t work for me it was muted and the hops did not seem to work in the beer. Now the bottle I got was badly oxidized as well. It was a cardboard nightmare and that may be why I disliked it so much. I need to give it another whirl from a different bottle shop, but if a second bottle from a different shop is the same as this I won’t be buying it again. Even better would be if I could find it on tap somewhere and let it wet the whistle that way. For now this one earns a thumbs down.
