What a pleasant surprise. I am not a big fan of this brewery’s products, but I thought this was exceptionally good. A real punch of grapefruit on the palate with a very nice mouthfeel, and it goes down dreadfully easy. Nice head with plenty of lacing. Finish is pine, grapefruit and floral. What a great summer drink...hops without the heaviness that good IPAs can leave you with, which can be a little much on a hot day. Hope I can find this on draft somewhere. Well done, Sam!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle. Pours a darker gold with a two inch white, pillowy head that lasts. Taste is of citrus, pine, malt, grapefruit, hops. Nice aroma that is similar. Has a nice body that finishes dry and bitter. Easy to drink like a lager, but packs an IPA punch. Refreshing and quite enjoyable. A nice beer that I wouldn’t mind enjoying on a summer camping trip.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottles. Pours out a yellow color with a white head. Smell is citrus, fruity, grassy. Taste is smooth and refreshing, pretty good - it actually does not have that signature Sam Adams taste that every beer they brew has. Good stuff.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice rich gold pour with beige head. Smell is tea like hops and fruit. Taste is crisp tea like hops and moderate crisp bitterness. Good full body and prickly carbonation. Pretty drinkable and feels like a pretty strong ipa hop wise. Pretty good but probably wouldn’t get again still.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A strong citrus smell. The head disappeared rather quickly and is weak. The beer is golden in color. It has a decent taste will grapefruit definitely present. Overall a decent beer.
