Short description of error
I'm not sure about the scale, because I think the principled shader has to be more physically accurate, the proportion is about 0.65:1.0 for principled and anisotropic shaders. On the other hand, the rotation is shifted by 0.25 anisotropic rotation units or 90º degrees, which rotation is right?

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

The principled BSDF was implemented specifically to follow the Disney BRDF and be compatible with other software. Our own Anisotropic BSDF is a bit different. Maybe one day we'll make them consistent, but we do not consider this a bug. Both are correct.
