When there’s nothing else to choose from, I’ll always take a Sam Adams. That said, this IPA disappoints a bit. This is what I’d call an IPA Lite. Clear copper color, off white (but not too far off) head, this just doesn’t assault you like a good IPA should. Kudos always to SA for striving for new flavors... just don’t go getting all bland on us.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

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.

12 oz bottle at home from notes. Pours a slightly hazy deep orange amber color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor had caramel malt, biscuits, citrus, earthy, hops, grass, some light spices, lighter bodied, mild bitterness, decent, more readily available ipa.

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.
