A- Fairly aggressive pour into a Sam Adams tulip glass produces two fingers of creamy white foam atop a reddish-orange base.
S- Fantastic; pine, citrus, fresh-hops smell. One of the better bouquets of any American IPA.
T- Hops plus more hops with a decent caramel-malt base. Not an overwhelming hop bitterness, but definitely the main pupose of this brew.
M- Strong hop bitterness at start and finish, adequate malt backbone in between. Not as malty as their Celebration Ale,
but enough to balance out the hop explosion.
D- Very quenching for a 7.2 ABV beer. I've got to keep this in mind before I turn this into a summer session beer.
I've heard this compared to an amped up version of SN pale ale, but I find this to be a brew all it's own. Probably the freshest hop taste around, and an excellent example of SN's
