COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This wily red IPA gets its character from the Tasmanian hops that are full of grapefruit, pine and earthy notes creating a bold flavor that threads throughout the taste. The hops are balanced by a core of roasty malts that give this brew body and richness with hints of toffee. This flavorful brew is rounded and smooth with a dry and citrusy hop finish.

DSG (6326) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 18, 2012
Bottle sample at a Samuel Adams tasting at kerenmk’s place. Thanks beerandbeyond. Deep red color with a nice frothy beige head. Aroma of piney and slightly earthy hops and some malt. Sweetish malty flavor with some caramel notes and bitter hops with some piney and a bit grapefruity notes. Medium-bodied. Decent.

Aurelius (4355) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 17, 2012
Intense AIPA aroma, sweet and hoppy. Good bottle, good label, very dark clear brown-red. Big tan head. Sweet, hoppy, chalky, tannic - not bad. Long, woody and sharply bitter red finish. Some hemp at the end, which geta a bit grassy. Frothy mouthfeel. Market Square Liquors.

puboflyons (2220) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 16, 2012
From Batch no. 2. The pour is is a handsome dark amber with delicate carbonation bubbles leading up to a tremendous, foamy tan head. The aromas are of candied malts, notable forest hops, and a little citrus. The body is medium to bold. The taste is definitely different with a roasted malt character merging with extraordinary hops that leave a sharp bitterness on the palate.

BVery (6939) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 16, 2012
Tap. Wow - interesting and complex brew! Reddish amber pour with a white head. Nose and taste are grapefruit, caramel, pine, and some light lemon. Very good.

halfonit (1183) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 15, 2012
On tap at Battleship. Pours a clear Ruby amber color. Aroma is of hops, sweeter malts, grain, slight floral notes, and candy. Flavor is of malts, brown sugar, hops, rye, and some citrus. Leaves a rye & hop finish. Decent Sam Adams brew.

Clear dark amber, almost brown. Pine, grass, resin aroma. Medium body, maybe more. Clean, malt-hop balanced taste. Best Sam A. Brew I've had.

Strykzone (5062) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAR 12, 2012
22 pz bottle. This pours mostly clear and cherry wood red. A nice tan head has decent retention. Floral hops, clover, and soft malt in the nose. The taste bigns with bitterness and that clover. It is like honey clover but the honey is light. Citrus begins to be tasted but the bitterness remains constant. Grapefruit arrives with warmer temps. This is nicer than expected and is an impressive effort.

From the bottle. Sweet candy caramel aroma, Soft carbonation, some grassy/piney hops, clean tasting with a dry finish. I think I could drink this again.

Poured a deep red color with a large foamy off-white head. Aroma is hoppy with grapefruit and pine. Also some candy in the aroma. Taste is also hoppy with good caramel malty flavors. Some sweet cotton candy flavors as well. Lots of earthy pine hops in the finish with some grapefruit. Some slight bread flavors as well. Overall very nice, and very well balanced.
