DalzAle (2040) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - MAY 9, 2012
Bottle. Slightly hazy medium orange pour, head that clings to the side of the class and an aroma of orange rinds and hops. Flavor is bitter orange, spruce, a little sweetness and not much else. OK. rocbyter (2185) - Waterbury, Connecticut, USA - MAY 9, 2012
Sweet citrus aroma. Cloudy golden color with a large white head. Sweet with a tangy bitterness throughout. jsmerig (1721) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 9, 2012
Pours a hazy golden yellow. Aroma of peppery hops. Taste is slightly sweet for a second and then it's all citrusy and peppery hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is thick. It could use a bit more dryness and a bit more balance.

Pours cloudy and light gold with frothy white head that laces the glass. Aroma is fruity and citrus. Taste is sweet and very slight bitter - strong grapefruit and slight pine notes. HighlanderOne (1396) - York, SC via NJ, South Carolina, USA - MAY 5, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2013 Poured from bottle. Nice hop aroma. Murky gold color, white lacing head. Pine and grapefruit hop flavors dominate, with creamy malt in the back. Also some pepper and clove This is simply a kick ass IPA. boxofrane (2559) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 5, 2012
Bottle. Pours deep orange with a pretty large white head, plenty of lacing. Aroma is very spicy with some floral notes behind the spice. Taste is spicy with some really earthy hoppiness. You can taste a little apricot competing with grapefruit. Not exactly bitter and not exactly sweet. Just a good balance of flavors. Pretty darn good offering from SA.

Bottle sample at the Sam Adams Hop-o-logy tasting at Blacklick Wine & Spirits on 5/3/12. Hazy orange pour with a thick white head. Aroma of grassy and piney hops with some Belgian esters. Malty flavor with grassy hops, stone fruit and a bitter grassy finish. Aml42000 (625) - Washington, USA - MAY 3, 2012
Very well made white IPA. Served a bit too cold at first. The nose took a minute to open up, but yielded to some light spice. Medium bodied with a balanced palate showing citrus zest and a hint of baking spice. Long finish.
