The color of the beer almost looks like a penny and the smell has a nice citrus, juicy quality to it with some pine mixed in there. Also has a sort of green apple smell from the hops as well.The taste has a nice malty backing to match the color. The malts used come off as roasted biscuit like malt with a tiny touch of honey. As for the hops it almost tastes like juicy fruits and pine with the bitterness evolving on the back of your tongue just enough to remind you that its an IPA made with American hops.
It has some European hops in it too to give it that Samuel Adams Boston Lager hop taste. Its nice because it melds the Boston Lager hoppiness which uses Noble hops with the more pungent hoppiness that you get from American hops really well with a nice balance of the two. More flavorful hops than bittering hops but still is pretty bitter and should satisfy the IPA fans and if it doesn't then they probably have something against Samuel Adams.
I like this one a lot definitely one of my favorite Samuel Adams beers. Its finally slowly coming to 6 packs in my area so this will become a regular go to IPA for me.
