Bottle from Sam Adams winter mixed 12 pack. Pours light amber. Off white frothy head. Piney aroma. Flavor is hop bitter. Havenít tasted Juniper, but assume thatís the flavor Iím picking up. Typical IPA mouthfeel. Overall decent drinkable beer. A typical SA special seasonal. The kind of beer that you like, but you wonít ever seek out again.

Bottle: † Fairly full bodied shrubby IPA. † Not all that hoppy or bitter. † Has moreso of a shrubby bitterness, perhaps the Juniper? † Decent body. † Pretty damn shrubby overall. † Shrubby!!!

pours a clear amber red color with a thick fluffy white head. the aroma is floral, sweet, slight citrusy. the taste is very mild for an ipa. you pick up some mild hops, grassy, slighty acidic, very floral. not a bad beer.

Got a few of these as part of a variety pack at Christmas. The juniper does add an interesting flavor. It is kinda sweet and earthy at the same time. Not bad, but not necessarily something I would search out again.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Medium amber with nice head. Pleasant bitterness, but still smooth for an IPA. Juniper is not overpowering. Pretty good.

Not a big IPA fan, so perhaps this rating is a bit biased. However, as IPAs go, this was actually my speed. Not too hoppy or bitter and the juniper flavor added a nice touch. All and all, as IPAs go, a decent beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilburís Fort Collins. Pours a burnt orange appearance with a cream colored head. Grapefruit / tangerine citrusy, mild caramel / toasted malty, kind of piney / herbal aroma. Chewy cracker / toasted malty, orange / tangerine, slight caramel, piney flavor. Fairly clean but not something Iíd be inclined to drink again.

Sam Adams juniper IPA is a height copper pour with a firm head of tiny white bubbles. This beer is true to the label with quite a bit of heady juniper in the nose backed by a touch of honey.taste is crisp and dry with a decent amount of bitters throughout. Body is lively as tiny bubbles persist through the swallow. A nice little IPA from Sam.

Pours a golden hue. Very odd aroma. Taste is comfortable with a good balance. I like it.
