3.48/5  rDev -2.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a glass mug. Pours clear golden copper with a tall, frothy biege head. I don't see a lot of bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass. I can see some collecting along the boundary with the head, but there aren't very many. There is decent head retention. Lacing is left along the side of the glass as the head retreats. There's a malty aroma accompanied by hops. The hops bring floral and citrus notes to the nose. It's a pleasant aroma. It's not exceptionally hoppy like a West Coast IPA, but the hop presence is definitely there. There are big malt flavors. There is a nice blend of bitter, pine, and citrus flavors from the hops. It's not as well balanced as some other IPAs because the bitterness does tend to dominate the other flavors a bit too much. However, it is still good. The body is medium and the carbonation is average. It's fairly easy to drink. Overall, this gets a B from me. It's not the best IPA I ever had, but I do think Samuel Adams is on the right track with this one.
