3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle, from Party Source. Best by: July 2013. Clear orange color. Good thin off-white head, decent retention. Good lace. Medium body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. More dry overall, but a good ample body, still. Nice bitter taste, very little sweetness. Bready lager aroma, but very satisfying crisp hop flavor. Nice grassy light floral and pine. Some citrus. Light spice. Good hop bouquet. Nice long hoppy aftertaste, with bready lagery malt mixed in there, too. Really good, satisfyin stuff. Smooth, easy drinking, and very tasty, and also very interesting at the same time.

Quite a concept; plenty of hops to satisfy the coneheads out there, but smooth enough for everyone to enjoy.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Clear yellow orange with a thick, frothy head and some lace. Aroma is all hops with citrus, floral, pine and pineapple. Flavor is light malt with a firm hop bitterness and a clean yeast profile. Light body with average carbonation. Great hybrid beer, the hops take center stage in the aroma with a clean malty backbone.

Well, apparently Sam Adams innovation of cramming a bunch of hops into a lager really resembles a classic IPA to me. It seems like mostly the bitter piney kind of hops flavors are winning out in this one.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a light rust orange with minimal head. Aroma of huge tropical citrus fruit. Taste is medium bitter. Citrus and tropical fruit with a hint of earthy pine. Medium bodied with a somewhat thin texture. Lively carbonation and a super long finish. Overall, very good. Somewhat unbalanced but the mix of flavors from the hops totally makes up for it.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Big bold fruit notes in both bouquet and flavour. Ever so slight bitterness. Smooth. Wish it was a little stronger. Not bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear golden color with some orange hues and a small, bubbly white head. Aroma is herbal, some tropical fruits and slight citrus. Tasty is hoppy in line with the aroma, herbal with some citrus and grapefruit, firm but mild with a salty finish and short after taste. Medium to light palate, easy driking, refreshing and tasty at the same time. Kind of a hopped-up Boston Lager. Wish they could do something like this @ 4.2 - 4.4% abv

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Smooth and malty, but balanced. Full enough, but not heavy. A very nice lager that the macros could sure learn from.
