3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle, Pours a clear deep copper with a 3/4" foamy white head. Clean, fresh hop aroma without being to strong. Same with the flavor. Nice hop flavor with a subtle malt sweetness. Doesn’t try to be to much. A "session" IPA if you will.Palate is light to medium. Nice, easy to drink brew.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice dark copper pour with a rich, malty, off white head. Aroma is of delicious bakery and citrus floral caramel. Great bitter taste and aftertaste. The after swallow is a bit water and affects the overall score. Otherwise this is a delightful "where have you been all my life" brew.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at company function, totally thrilled to see a decent choice vs. Yueng, Coors light, etc.... Too bad the RBers won’t give this a better score cuz of the Sammy on the label of just a 12oz bottle. Pour was amber in color decent head and lacing. The aroma was a good mix of the hop tell tales: floral, citrus, and pine. The flavor followed, fairly full hop profile with a decent amount of bitterness. Toasted malts, cereal, juicy fruit malts. Mouthfeel was average to moderate in body, on target for carbonation. Nice job, Sammy, even if it isn’t loaded with over-the-top highly uber flavored American style hops.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours copper/amber with a medium sized head. Aroma is lovely with a lot of floral hops. Medium in body with a good amount of carbonation. Flavor is a bit mild for an IPA, but there are enough hops to make it worth while. Better than most of the Sam brews out there.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear amber / bronze with a dense soapy beige head. The aroma has bready toasty malt, some dry caramel, earthy hops, some sweetness, light soap and a British slant to it. Medium body with a bit of roughness and lots of flowing carbonation. The taste begins fairly dry with lots of earthiness to it. It is quite woody as well with some toasty malt that is on the tree bark side. The finish has more bark and pine cones along with harsh hoppiness. Okay IPA.

Bottle enjoyed at Uncle Marios.. byob. A bit underrated.. strong hop character for a single ipa. Very pronouced and somewhat aggressive. Great IPA.

This beer pours a rich amber with a medium white head. The aromas are citrus, grass, and pine. The mouthfeel is sticky and bitter with a heavy body. Cheers!

Bottle. Solid but very simple. Not too much hop variety/complexity, but still pleasant and bitter. At its price though ($8/6pack) I will probably revisit this one.

Surprisingly good ipa. It gushed from the bottle. Thick, lacing head. good hop aroma immediately. Dry hops in the flavor, balanced by sweet malt and bread. Grapefruit aftertaste.
