Great hop profile, not much of anything else. It’s an ipa with the drinkability of a lager of some kind. Sam Adams has a way with that. It’s not a beer that you would drink if you wanted to be impressed but it’s definitely worth a try and definitely a beer to get if you want a good drinkable beer with a nice hoppy flavor.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an amber from a bottle with a medium-sized cream colored head with medium bubbles. Aroma is a great dry hopped citrus and resin, just smells sticky. Flavor is not quite as strong, a good malty background to balance the hops, but I feel the hops could be a little more potent. Good beer.

Solid offering from Samuel Adams. Pretty session able for an IPA. Nothing overpowering but you get the hops, bitterness, and dryness you expect in an IPA it just won’t blow you away, which is sometimes appropriate.

The label says it doesn't overpower you with hops. But it tastes like somebody accidentally spilled the entire barrel of hops in the vat and called it an IPA. In fairness, it's not awful. Just very hoppy
