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.

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 didnít jive well to me. This beer was given to me and I would not purchase one, glad I tried this but thatís 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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clean amber look, with a small amount of head. Has a pleasing citrus/spruce aroma. Has a nice juniper like after taste that reminds me a bit of gin. Dissapointed by the lack of hoppiness for an IPA. Just average by my taste.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours golden with a thick white head that slowly dissipates. Good lacing. Aromas are malt, muted notes of pine and citrus. Malty flavors up front, notes of grapefruit, butterscotch, juniper berries. Decent hop bite. Creamy but light mouthfeel. Actually, this is a nice brew. Itís a rather malty IPA, lacking the typical floral hop aroma of most American IPAs and but has nice flavor and a decent hop bite. Very enjoyable. Sam Adams neednít be ashamed of this offering. Not at all.

12 oz bottle- Pours mostly clear copper with a two finger head. Aroma is piney, sweet malt, juniper berries. The taste is lightly malty, not getting as much of the juniper as I thought, mild bitterness and a dry finish. Was hoping for more.
