Well, I hate to be hard on ole Sam, because at least Sam brings decent beers to the masses, but the description of this beer says it all: ..a distinctive but not overpowering hop character." As in "hops for the masses." Not that there’s anything wrong with that, I guess. If this beer can be a gateway drug to a true IPA, then all is for the best. I would take this beer over a regular Sam Adams LAger at an Airport bar, so this is a step in the right direction. But on my list of favorite IPA’s this is pretty low on the list.

Pleasant but over-perfumed brew that fails to garner a whole lot of interest. Not bad quality by any standards, just somewhat one-dimensional.

12oz courtesy of hawanna @Biervana post-BKL mini-tasting , danke. Classical East Coast APA/IPA crossover with pleasantly earthy EU and UK leanings: biscuit malt base, organge marmelade, some of that Lady Gray surfacing in between the more pronounced pine and grapefruit zest. Caramel malts provide more sweetness than texture, sessionable.

Dark orange. almost no head. Aroma is dense, crispy and malt-forward. There’s a nice mouthfeel to this one, crisp light, almost refreshing. european aroma with some mulch, graham cracker, ginger, honey.

Poured from a bottle into a glass. The beer is an attractive orange color with a single finger of creamy head that leaves a bit of lacing on the glass. It smells of pineapple, grass and brown sugar. A very pleasant nose. The taste is a bit sweet with a touch of apricot at first and then becomes more bitter and dry with the Euro hops shining through. Has an almost pilsner quality to it but a good pilsner. It’s as if an American craft brewery had a baby with a good German beer if that makes any sense. It’s medium bodied, a bit sticky with lively carbonation and finishes dry. This beer doesn’t exactly wow me for an IPA but there isn’t anything off about it either. I would definitely have this again. All in all a good beer.

This hoppy IPA provides a refreshing burst initially with an aromatic finish of spice. Aftertaste is clean. This beer is good alone or provides a refreshing combination with food.

Kopparfärgad öl. God doft av humle, malt och karamell där humlen inte tar över. Smak i samma bana där malten får lite mer utrymme än i många andra Ipa. Lätt sötma och beska.
