Bottle. Enjoy before: 06/14. A clear amber pour with a one finger-thick beige head. Plenty of grapefruits, oranges, zesty citrus rinds, some lemons, a fair amount of caramel, and just a hint of pine in the aroma. Thin to medium-bodied and pretty crisp on the way down. Semi-sweet caramel and a sizable biscuity/crackery presence upfront in the taste. Grapefruits, zesty citrus rinds, and some bitter lemons in the finish. Dry and chalky. Quite drinkable.

deathserv (24) - Astoria, New York, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Bottle poured into glass. Clear amber, no haze, with a nice amount of carbonation evident. Medium fizzy head. Aroma is more subtle than IPAs Iíve tried recently with citrusy being the dominant aspect and a little floral notes, not much resin here. Medium bodied, average carbonation. A bit oily on the palate with a pretty long finish. Solid beer.

On tap at McKenzie River. Pours a clear gold, with a thin white head. Taste is rich and hoppy, notes of grass. A good strong IPA. Thumbs up. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A 6.5% IPA from Sam Adams? This should be interesting. Pours a orangish honey color with a nice creamy white head. Looks pretty appetizing actually. Aroma is honey, slightly floral and tangerine. Taste is so-so. Bitter hops rounded off by a sweet malty aftertaste. Not much in the way of complexity. Feels like Sprite in the mouth. Very carbonated and slightly prickly. Overall this is a sub-par IPA. Canít expect much going in to it though.

So-so. I was expecting a lot more hop presence for an ale tagged as a west coast IPA. I wonder what yeast they used because it has a taste similar to Sam Adams Stock Ale, so I suspect the same yeast was used. There are many other IPAs out there that are much better, and better balanced.

Sampled on tap. A nice brew but hop palate is milder than you expect. Decent but not great.

Cybercat (3579) - Georgia, USA - MAR 13, 2014
Aroma is strong and hoppy, mainly woody with an undertone of fresh-mowed hay. Pours a clear amber with a nice thick pale buff head. Hoppy flavor is bold and woody, a little bitter, with just a snippet of fruit. Not too shabby, though I like a wee bit more complexity. Texture is fairly fizzy and firm. If not Samís best, certainly a respectable IPA. Man your X-Wings, and may the Hops be with you!

Just not a good tasting IPA. Know what I think they were going for here but just poor execution. No real distinct hoppy bite or taste, nor does it have the good balance. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2014 Pours a clear gold light copper color with huge monster head. Aroma is citrucy pine hops and some floral notes and some spices. Taste follows the Aroma with a medium Mouth feel. Very tasty! From the can. Great go to brew.
