Way too much alcohol can be tasted and smelled in this brew.

My first one came after a couple of Dales Pales Ales and my saturated palate enjoyed the flowery, less citrus taste. When I returned to this beer as a first drink of the day, it was nearly disposable. The alcohol tastes is far too much. The hops that follow up are okay.

I love hops, but this beer would have served better with more malt and more balance.

well one problem being the beer geek i am, sam adams labels there beer in the bottom right of the label with the type of beer (ale or lager) well, a pilsner is a lager by def. but sammy puts ale on it, (am i the only one who noticed??) yeah i scratchd my head too....for pilsner damn good, but it's not a pilsner, by yeast type (ale) and flavor, it is an i.p.a. i wish they would change that....that's my rant for the day.
