REVIEW - San Franpsycho IPA By Anchor

This was a nostalgia purchase for myself...and I have to say I was quite disappointed, it didn't live up to the tasty beer that I knew years ago.

Not to say the beer has changed, but rather its a great example of how times have changed with beer. 

When this was first released it would have been quite groundbreaking for its fruity and easy drinking style - going up against hop heavy beers. But now having it, the balance isn't quite there and the flavours aren't as bold as they should be for whats promised on the bottle.

Its more like if you added fruit puree or fruit juice to an already hoppy IPA and just tried to cut them together as such. The body as well is quite thin with low carbonation - which doesn't quite give it the satisfying mouthfeel that dominates fruit heavy IPAs in today's market.

If this beer is the best option at the pub you are at, give it ago, otherwise hard to recommend. 

2.75/5
