Rated based on notes taken 14 Apr 2012 -- Drank in Pueblo at IFS. A solid offering from SA. Is it just me or does the quality decrease every year, or does my palatte just improve every year?

This IPA tastes more like a pale ale. It is alright, but nothing to be excited about

This beer is as always produced by Sam Adams, a solid beer, this beer is a golden brown color with a slighty hoppy taste, good with crabs

This beer has a flowery hops aroma, with a slight malt taste to it as well. All in all it is a pretty solid beer.

Draft. Pours gold with white head. Some malt and some floral hops on the nose. tastes the same, mild citrus and malt flavors with a clean finish. More pale ale than IPA. Refreshing.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a pint glass.
The color is a deep gold with a foamy white head.
The smell is mixed with caramel, malts, and a hint of hops.
The taste is of malts and slight hints of citrus fruits.
Pretty well balanced and very tasty. Goes down nice and smooth. Also has a really nice finnish as well.

This is the first time I’ve even seen sam adams ale, so I thought I’d get some to try it. I must say, it is quite good. It is labeled as an IPA, but to be honest, it doesn’t really remind me of any other IPA I’ve tried. I am impressed once again by this company as they have scored yet another success in what is an ever-growing collection, suited for palates of all different tastes.
