Dripping with dank, American hop flavors and aromas, Overgrown is balanced by a subtle, sweet malt backbone that takes a back seat to the bountiful hop additions. A celebration of the hop-growing season, this one will tangle up your taste buds.

Took a couple bites and was done. Was disgusted with the cream cheese taste. Larvae did add some crunchiness. Threw it out. Why did I get it? To say I actually tried it.

Anchor IPA™ is made with 2-row barley malt and fresh whole-cone hops, its bright amber color, distinctively complex aroma, spiky bitterness, malty depth, and clean finish unite to create a uniquely flavorful, memorable, and timeless craft IPA.
The elephant you see on Anchor IPA™ was hand-drawn by our label artist, James Stitt. To "see the elephant" was a popular 19th-century expression that originated with a tale that predates the California Gold Rush.
There once lived a farmer who had heard of elephants but had never seen one. He longed for the day when he might catch a glimpse of this rare, exotic creature. When the circus came to town, he loaded his wagon with fresh produce and headed to market. On the way, just as he'd hoped, he came across the circus parade, nobly led by an enormous elephant. The farmer was ecstatic, but his horses were terrified. They reared and bucked, overturning his wagon and scattering its precious contents in the road. "I don’t give a hoot," exclaimed the farmer. "I have seen the elephant!"
The elephant became the universal symbol of the Gold Rush, as evidenced by the journals, letters, and sketchbooks of the forty-niners. Whether or not they struck it rich in the diggings, those plucky pioneers would forever treasure their California adventure as the defining moment of their lives. Have you seen the elephant?
2014 is the first year Anchor came out with the IPA. It's in pretty much the same bottle as the steam beer.
Pours with about a half inch of head. Lacing is spotty on the glass and is actually rather good. Smell isn't all that impressive. It just smells like their steam beer with slightly more hops. Taste is like the aroma. Just like the steam beer, only slightly more hopped. This isn't what I would consider an IPA. Would call it Anchor Steam version 1.5. Overall just ok for an IPA.
While drinking this, I do think I found out what actually killed Patrick Swayze.

85 BA and Bros score on Beer Advocate. 97 overall and 87 style score on RateBeer.
First brewed and released in 2010 as a core brand in their Crooked Line of beers, Detour Double IPA escalated into a brand that no longer fit in with the limited release nature intended for Uinta’s Crooked Line. And so, Uinta gave the brand a face lift, adapting its packaging to emerge the brand into their Classic Line of beers.
So what changed? In lieu of a 750ml cork and caged finished bottle, Detour will be bottled in Uinta’s proprietary 12oz Compass Bottle and adorned with new label artwork that adopts the outdoorsy, adventurous look and feel of Uinta’s Classic Line. The Detour label depicts a Vintage International Scout and Airstream Camper heading away from the ‘hustle and bustle’ towards the great outdoors; the type of ‘Detour’ that resonates with the Uinta team and consumers alike. Detour will be available in a 4 pack and is scheduled to hit shelves in early February.
As for the beer, Detour’s hop profile will be kicked up a few notches with the addition of a fifth hop, Citra, which boosts citrusy characteristics in the beer. A scenic tour of hops, consumers can expect a bright and bold Double IPA.
When I think of the toffee beer I start to cry.
