Christening my Sam Adams Boston Lager glass from smutty33 with this brew sent by JJFoodie. A tip of the hat to Jim and Jeff for their generous extras!
Note - I do not often drink IPAs.
A: A perfectly amber body with a huge, off-white head. I really love the top of it - all the small, delicate bubbles remind me of a cobweb for some reason. It's not rocky at all. Great, sticky lacing.
S: What greets me first is actually a decent amount of maltiness. Followed immediately by hoppiness of a tropical fruit nature; mangos and papayas are what I can pick out. Not much bitterness.
T: Starts off with the maltiness and tropical fruit, but immediately afterwards a fairly strong, piney, but not too bitter taste comes in. This bitterness fades near the end, allowing the malt and fruit to come back in a bit, and the after taste is naught but a whisper of bitter.
M: Maybe a bit too much carbonation, but pretty good. There's a nice, gentle creaminess going on.
D: As drinkable as they come.
Well, this was pretty enjoyable. I don't think I'll ever be a hophead, but these hoppier pale ales without much bitterness work out well for me. I may have to investigate this style more in the coming, warmer months.

Pours a hazy amber color with a thick creamy head.
Aroma is faintly hoppy with alcohol more noticeable as it warms. Some malt and a little fish sauce in there.
Taste is caramel malt with hop bittering and a metallic finish.
Good carb with a sweet sticky finish.
Would buy again.
