Thought this was one of the better Sam Adams beers I have had. Pored a nice deep orange color with an awesome head, white and foamy. Smells of oine and some citrus. Hop flavor is bold and awesomely balanced (I believe 5 different hops in this one). Even though the hops is dominant, there is still a touch of malt sweetness to balance. I loved it !!!!!

Pretty good well balanced brew. Lots of hop flavor, but not too bitter. You still get the flavor of a Sam Adams at the end.

12 oz bottle from the "Hopology" sampler. Pours amber in color with a very foamy head. According to the label it has 5 types of hops, so I was expecting that to dominate the taste buds. It does. At this point I wanted to reconcile the bitterness to some kind of sweet or citrus flavor, but I found some caramel, grass, and malt instead. It was a notch above okay due to the complexity of the hops, but I'm not sure this is a beer I would drink again.

Didn't expect much from Sam Adams since most of their beers are mediocre at best, but I was impressed with this one. Pours a nice deep reddish amber with good lacing. Nice piney citrus aroma. The tastes are of malty sweetness, citrus and hop bitterness though not intense. I normally go for the high ibu ipas, but the balance between the hoppiness and maltyness in this one makes up for the lack of intense bitterness. Somehow it works. Nice job Sam Adams!

A nice IPA from SA. The color is a dark yellow with a white head that trails the glass. The smell is full of citrus from the hops. The taste was full of pine and grapefruit and really made an effort to make sure the hops were the central point of this brew. I actually thought it was very good. Nice mouthfeel made for an overall very nice IPA that I'll probably get again soon.
