This is kind of a session IPA without the low ABV. Pleasantly piney nose. Stong malt base (typical Sam Adams grainbill), but nice citrus/pine hop notes. Its a very nicely balanced IPA with no real distinguishing features. Really gets better by the second glass. Definitely the best IPA Ive had from Sam Adams.

12oz bottle. Pours a sparkling coppery color with small off-white head. Citrusy hoppy aroma. Mellow bitter citrusy hoppy flavor. Medium bodied with a long bitter finish. Nothing really stands out here, but on the whole a solid IPA.

Transfer from BA review on 1-19-14- Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance The beer is served golden amber color with a one finger white head. The head has a good level of retention, slowly fading to leave a moderate level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell The aroma of the beer is heaviest of fresh hop smells of pine. Mixed with these are some other lighter hop notes of a floral and grassy nature as well. Some light caramel sweetness and a bit of a bready smell mix with the rest leaving an overall rather fresh piney hop aroma. Taste The taste begins with a lighter bready taste with a hint of caramel sweetness. Right from the start there is a pine flavor with some other hop flavors of a light grapefruit citrus. The pine hop tastes rather fresh from the start with it later being complemented by even more hoppy flavors of an earthy nature. The caramel sweetness increases ever so slightly throughout the taste, with the bready flavor taking on a doughier like nature more toward the end. With the pine surging again at the end of the flavor, one is left with a slightly resinous hoppy flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel The body of the beer is on the thinner side in terms of its thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that average. Overall the body is a bit too thin to support all the hop flavors of the brew with the carbonation again being a bit low for all the nice fresh hop tastes. Overall Other than the mouthfeel, this beer was rather nice as it tastes and smells of very fresh hops. This is one I could see hop heads liking, even with it not being a double (or triple) IPA.

355ml bottle pours a golden color with a finger and a half of white head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is pine and citrus with some grains. Taste is a light pine and grapefruit hop bitterness with a generous malty sweetness. Makes for a good session IPA. Recommended.

presario (4902) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 6, 2014
Mainstream Craft. Or craft for the masses. A gateway beer. Solid malt and a decent hop,level. Piney. Should come in cans. West Coast toned down. Clean, hoppy, drinkable.

ZacM612 (506) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - OCT 1, 2014
Clear, light amber with white head, a little lacing. Aroma is a bit week. Mostly hops, but not strong. Flavor wins some points back, but Id count this as an entry-level IPA.
