12 oz bottle with a best before date of February 2011 poured into a Samuel Adams "perfect pint" on September 30, 2010.
Bright and clear, dark amber red colored with a big, creamy, off white head that's going to leave an excellent, excellent, lacing. I don't know if it's the Sam Adams glass, but IS this a beautiful IPA! The head on this thing is creamy, dense, and rocky, like a classic Belgian ale. Have to wait for the foam to subside before noting anything on aroma.
Nice malt aroma to it, slightly toasty and sweet perhaps. However, where are the hops? Such a weak hop aroma for an ale that tastes this good! A shame.
Bitter and flavorful from beginning to finish, with a supporting malt base. Has a familiar citrusy zing to it. The taste is very good, if not the best. The finish is clean and leaves a bitter aftertaste.
Nice and crisp, with some remnant maltiness without being anywhere close to cloying. Classic AIPA style.
Props to Sam Adams for making a good tasting IPA with relatively low alcohol. Just dry hop it generously guys and we have a winner! (Wouldn't the brewers love it when drunk douches tell them what to do!).
