3.8/5  rDev +6.4%
look: 5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Bottle poured into my Sam Adams Perfect Pint glass. Notched "Best Before February 2013". I would hope that Sam believes this beer is "best before" 4-months from bottling, and not 6. If so, this beer is about as fresh as it gets.

A: Pours a darker shade of Amber than expected. With a huge white off-white head on top that did not dissipate.

S: Pine. A touch of grapefruit. Grassy notes and maybe a touch of lemon-zest.

T: A nice balance of pine-and-grapefruit hops and malt sweetness, all done at a moderate volume. If Craft Beer was a Field of Study, this brew would be considered to be an excellent "intro to IPA" course. It's well done, it's well balanced, it touches on a lot of the "classic flavors" that have come to define American IPA, but it's all done at a moderate volume.

If I was to be critical at all, this is shading a bit more to the "sweeter" end of things than I'd like in my IPA. Not by a lot. But a little.

M: Light and semi-dry. Carbonation is a shade low for my liking.

D/O: A fine beer. Runs a touch sweet for my liking.
