4.35/5  rDev +11.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance:
Deep orange body, light haze and tons of carbonation. On pour, a huge off-white head presents itself but after awhile fades to a slim ring. Light lacing and legs.

Aroma:
Quite zesty! Light maltiness with a pleasant earthy and spiced hop note. Peppery. A citrus sweetness is present and white grape juice. Bubblegum and a hint of clove.

Taste:
Wow - expectations surpassed! Everything the nose sets you up for is present and there is nothing subtle about any of it. Beautiful spice with spot on pepper, clove and a hint of coriander and perhaps a bit of lavender. Although a bit out of style, a nice bubblegum and pear character rounds out the taste. With an ABV of 10%, this beer blows me away! I can detect literally no alcohol at all, it is masked beautifully - however, half way through the bottle... I can definitely feel it!

Mouthfeel:
Light to medium body and gobs of carbonation. Not exactly smooth, but it works well for this. A mild dry finish and not lingering aftertaste.

Overall:
To date, this is easily the best beer I've had from the Boston Beer Co! What makes it so impressive is its incredible balance, well masked alcohol profile, and complex hit to the taste buds. Next time you see this, don't shy away from this due to the fact that it is a Samuel Adams - it's a brilliant beer that must be experienced!
