From notes on 12/15/11:
2011 release; Poured in a Sam Adams Perfect Pint glass.
A - Just over one inch of off-white fluffy head; Clear appearance with a nice caramel/copper color; Moderate lacing
S - Overall faint aroma; Some toffee and caramel sweetness; Very wet smelling grassy, earthy hops
T - This is a unique IPA taste for sure; Up front, there's sweet caramel and toffee that quickly turns to citrusy tones; Spicy, earthy and grassy hops come more in the finish; Just a little bitterness up front that vanishes quickly
M - Some carbonation; Medium bodied; Slightly dry finish that leaves an oily coat on the tongue
O - Overall, I thought this was a very drinkable and unique IPA. The flavor wasn't the most hop heavy that I've had, and the aroma underwhelmed a bit, but the flavor profile was distinctly different with the use of Challenger hops. It brought out a nice sweet, toffee, spicy, earthy flavor that I felt was a good change of pace from what I usually experience in IPA's.

3.13/5 rDev -14.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3
a torrent of bubbles feeding a white cap of foam, soapy residue clings to the glass and the storm of carbonation below keeps the head quite afloat, she reveals a slightly hazy orange hue, a very attractive glass o' suds
surprisingly mellow, some hops in a semi tropical fruit/light pine vein, some malt presence but pretty meek
again, pretty mellow, would be nice for just your run of the mill american PA with a slightly nicer hop signature on the back end, has a pretty good kick for a medium range ABV and a nice bitterness lingering around the barn
it drinks right body wise, just enough weight to have some but light enough to be quite drinkable, the carbonation is also right on with just a nice bite adding to the overall feel
not a bad beer but not a stunner. a good drinker but then again so are a hundred other beers available year round without the hop-la... get it ? oh man I crack myself up...
