This is a very good IPA entry from Sam Adams. Fairly dry, mildly fruity and slightly bitter with decent hop charachteristics. My beer of choice at the moment.

Sam IPA pours a medium clear golden, with a nice rocky white head. The head quickly receeds, leaving some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is malty (caramel, bread), and lightly hoppy (pine, citrus). Flavor is lightly malty (caramel), and finishes with a weak hop bitterness. Body is on the lighter side, carbonation is as well. There are too many superior IPA's to bother with this one.

karsten (240) - odense, DENMARK - FEB 13, 2003
Hazy orange colour. Good bitter hops aroma and flavour. A bit of citrus, slightly on the sweet side, medium-bodied. Good finish. A very drinkable and somehow smooth IPA. My beer bottle had a red label and an alcohol content of 5.50%.

Hazy amber color, poor head. Strange aroma, of bread. Some malt, sharp bitter character. Not impressive.

Sweet mellow hoppy aroma. The flavor is mostly citrus with some moderate bitterness. The hops seem to lack their normal floral attributes. This beer is pretty drinkable but doesn't really adhere to style.

jskendzel (602) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 27, 2003
Very different hop profile than I was expecting. An unusual taste for the style and not as bitter in the right way as I would have liked. Fruity and dry in the finish. Tastes like a grapefruit gone bad. Not enjoyable.

I liked it, but it was a little overwhelming on the citrus. Not something I would buy again.

Hansen (6888) - Assentoft, DENMARK - JAN 12, 2003
Never had any respect for american beer. (In Denmark itís Bud or Miller MGD). Sam Adams IPA is clearly better than these two. It has a ceralic flavor and aroma thatís new to me. I like it, but itís a bit to dry.
