Samuel Adams Belgian-Style IPA (Sample A)
Brewed by Boston Beer Company
Boston, Massachusetts USA
Style: India Pale Ale (IPA) | Ratings: 38 | Alcohol: 5.7%
This was labeled Sample A for Sam Adamsí 2010 Beer Loverís Choice Longshot competition.
Sample A, a Belgian-style IPA, is an incredibly complex beer that begins with the fruity, sweet, slightly tart and spicy characteristics of Belgian ale yeast. The blend of malts, including a traditional slow-roasted Czech variety, adds a crisp, slightly roasty note. This is complemented by a combination of German and American hops, which add complex notes of eucalyptus, pine and citrus. The beer finishes with the distinct hop bitterness expected from an IPA, immediately demanding a second sip.
