COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This unique double IPA takes the style’s origins a step further. IPAs were born out of making an ale that could sustain a long voyage. For our take, we were inspired by the indomitable Capt. James Cook whose 3rd voyage made him the first to navigate a treacherous route from England to New Zealand to the Pacific Northwest. Using Cascade hops from each of these regions we created a brew that’s citrusy, earthy and full of bold character.

Bottle. Pours a clear sap hued gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has some pine and resin with a stong backing sweet bread and caramel note. Flavor begins with bitter pine and has strong underlying notes of sweet bread and grains.

Pours auburn orange with some white fizz. Smells floral with some citrus notes. Tastes very bitter with some malt sweetness. Full-bodied with a slick texture and mild mouth-carbonation, Samuel Adams Third Voyage finishes with some lasting bitterness.

22 ounce bottle into snifter glass. Pours crystal clear reddish orange color with a nice 2-3 finger dense light khaki head with great retention that reduces to a cap. Some spotty lacing on the glass as well. Aromas of orange, grapefruit, floral, caramel, pine, herbal, biscuit, honey, and a bit of booze. Some nice and fairly well balanced aromas. Taste of big orange peel, grapefruit, caramel, honey, pine, herbal, biscuit, spices, and a bit of tropical fruit. Good amount of bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, caramel, honey, and herbal spice on the finish for a bit. Great overall balance of flavor and bitterness in this; not over the top like some DIPAs. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a fairly creamy and slightly slick mouthfeel. Very easy to drink for being 8%; and the alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming after the finish. Overall this is a very straightforward and balanced DIPA offering from Sam Adams. Very enjoyable and drinkable; with some big citrus flavor.

Ibrew2or3 (6787) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JAN 7, 2012
Half liter bottle pours a nice clear deep copper with full light tan head. The aroma offers up some pine hops, grapefruit hops, resiny grassy notes and some booziness around the edges. The taste is full somewhat harsh booze and bitter hops that seem just right for the style. I get malt sweetened pine hops, pine bitterness, some grapefruit and resiny grassiness. This is a pretty good IIPA where some light sugary malt notes are noticed from time to time.

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2012 copper orange red color. Piney hops smell. very bitter piney hop taste. It’s a pretty solid IPA. If you are a hop head, you would enjoy this. My complaint about this beer is that it really doesnt cut it as an double IPA. If this was a standard IPA for 8 to10 bucks a 6 pack I would be impressed and put it up there with two hearted and stone IPA. But for 8 bucks a bomber I exprect a little more.

22oz bottle from Binny’s poured into a snifter. Pours a clear, very dark amber with about 3 fingers of frothy white head. Aroma is mostly pine with a little grapefruit and citrus. Taste is heavily bitter. Lots of pine with a nice little bit of citrus. Full bodied with a thick yet slick texture. Lively carbonation and a very long, very bitter finish. Overall, great. Even though the side of the bottle suggests aging it, I would drink this now!

bottle... dark clear orange with a bit a copper center, light tan head, a bit of a cap and good lace... pretty good nose, light oranges, soap, a bit of old generic malt and vanilla finish... not that big of a fan, wet dog, soap, vanilla and caramel... wouldn’t have again

Jesterdeal (1814) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - JAN 4, 2012
Aroma of sweet pine, a hint of funk, and just a smidge of citrus. Pours deep amber with a big foamy sticky head. Tastes initially of pine hops and a great malt Mouthfeel takes over. Finishes sweet and a bit skunky.
