Bottle. Wow! Good job Sam Adams, another solid beer! Never seen an "ipl" and it’s a pretty fun blend of flavors. Smells like an average ipa, like an anchor ale...but the taste adds so much to it. Has a crisp hoppiness to it, that finishes smooth and has little aftertaste. The aftertaste that’s there is weak and floral. This is my new fave spring brew...very light, crisp, and has all the ipa kick I’d like! Needs more booze though. 5.0% alcohol.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours clear amber with a large white puffy head that slowly dissipates with nice lacing. Aroma is pine, citrus. Not strong, but pleasant enough. Flavor is about the same, lightly sweet, lightly bitter. Light body, oily mouthfeel. Refreshing and nice. I like this beer!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Damn, a fine fucking lager we have right here. Pours a golden color like coors banquet beer, but with a massive white head that lasts a long, long time. Aromas of very perfume like hops, flowers, Chanel no. 5. Taste is very hop forward, a delicate bouquet of garden aromas with a very light malt backbone. Softly sweet and sticky mouthfeel. This is a damn good beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Grapefruit, orange, and piney hops aroma with some biscuit malt. Clear copper with a large off-white head, and a nice ring of lacing. Grapefruit, orange, piney hops, and a biscuity malt backbone which provides some balance. Light to medium body, moderate carbonation. Very drinkable, but definitely not a lager.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a sharp clear golden amber with two fingers of sticky white head. Extremely hoppy and very impressive on the first impression. Slight onion/garlic notes in the nose, extremely pungent, oily, and resinous. Some cracked pepper comes though. Fruity resin in the flavor with a pronounced spicy/peppery character. Light-medium body with a dry finish and moderate bitterness. Excellent.

Dark golden color with a fairly decent white head. Aroma is like an earthy pale lager with some hops. Taste of hay, hops and grapefruit. A bit dry and bitter.
