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

Bottle. Poured a beautiful dark golden color. Clear. Medium head. Aroma of junipers, pine, floral citrus hop. Medium bitterness. Average carbonation. This is a tastey unique ipa. Well done again Sam Adams.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A- Hops, spruce, juniper, citrus.
A- Orange color, hazy liquid, white head.
T- Medium bitterness, mild citrus notes, piney.
P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, slight bitter finish.
O- A quality IPA that I was unsure about going in to it. The citrus tones balance the hops well and provide a slightly sweet bitter taste to this IPA.

Bottle from Ron. Not bad. Hits you in the nose like you just chewed on pine needles and released their nectar. Starts dry, mellows, then dries back out again. Interesting.

I dont understand this combination. Juniper berries and IPA just sounds a good idea, but in reality what is left is bitterness that is longlasting and not refreshing more like annoying smell you cant get out. Not my style.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The appearance of this brew is a clear orange color with a medium white head that does fade at a medium pace, and the aroma blends resin and floral hops and juniper with a hint of diacetyl. The taste is quite bitter with a hint of sweetness, which is a bit too unbalanced to be truly enjoyable, and the palate fuses an average carbonation, .medium body, slick texture, and a bitter finish.

On tap at Barrels & Bottles. Dark gold and clear with a sticky white head. Aroma and flavor of pine, berries, resinous hops and citrus fruit. Average body with a crisp, clean finish. Hoppy and fruity with light sweetness, nice balance.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma was decent hop scent up front with a juniper blend. Taste was okay, not a particularly great ipa...and a juniper finish that just didn’t jive well to me. This beer was given to me and I would not purchase one, glad I tried this but that’s about all.

IPA glass. The juniper blends nicely with the hops giving it a more mellow taste. Pours a clear amber with a huge head, lots of lacing.

12 oz bottle from the holiday sampler case. Pours with a minimum head and a yellow to tan color. Medium body with a nice finish of gin like tastes. A fun to try beer but perhaps only for one time.
