Anchor San Franpsycho

What the brewers say

"Brewed with 2-row pale, red wheat and acidulated malt, San Franpsycho® IPA pours a hazy golden straw color with a white fluffy head. The mouthfeel is creamy and smooth yet mildly effervescent with a hint of back-end tartness. San Franpsycho® IPA is fermented with a mixed culture of yeast to create a unique and fruity estery nose, unlike any other IPA from Anchor. Anchor brewers add peach and apricot fruit puree during the secondary fermentation, giving the beer a pleasant hint of sweetness and abundantly fruity aromas of peach, apricot, and pineapple with a bit of funky dank."

What our panel thought

Aroma: "Medium lemon pledge and light strawberry. Light hints of sweet orange citrus followed by low graininess."

Flavor: "Tastes like an artificial sweetener. Like a liquid pez. Not a lot of bitterness. Does have some lemon flavor. Very low malt. Despite it tasting like candy it doesn't actually have a lot of sweetness. Finishes medium dry."

Overall: "An odd flavor for a beer. Needs less lemon."
