Argonauts were the legendary heroes who sailed with Jason on the Argo in quest of the Golden Fleece. During the California Gold Rush, this ancient word was re-imagined to include those hardy pioneers who journeyed westward by ship or prairie schooner in search of adventure, fortune, and a new life. For 2015, there will be three brand new brews released throughout the year. Find them at the same retailer outlets you currently buy Anchor beers or use our beer finder to search near you.
Like Anchor’s Liberty Ale®, Double Liberty™ IPA is made with 2-row pale malt and whole cone Cascade hops. Unlike Liberty Ale, Double Liberty has double the hops and double the IBUs (90 International Bittering Units), imparting uniquely complex flavors and dry-hop aroma to this radically traditional IPA.
When the Cascade hop is used is such large quantities in both the kettle and dry hopping the result is golden hued ale with a bountiful rich tropical fruit aroma and flavor. The perceived bitterness is lower than the actual 90 IBU’s would suggest and together with no alcohol heat culminates into a deceivably drinkable Double IPA.
