A-very nice pour. Large white head, dark amber medium carbonation.

S- Smells great! Hoppy,with an odd sweetness that I cant put my finger on. Cotton candy and fruit?

T-Just right for an ipa. Not really aggresive, but well balanced and very drinkable. Turning out to be one of my favorite IPA's.

M-Just perfect! Nice bite, yet smooth.

D-VERY.

This is a winner. Probably one of the best beers ive ever had.

12oz bottle purchased as part of this year's summer mix-pack at the local Hannaford's. Consumed from a Samuel Adams Boston Lager glass. Pours a crystal-clear deep amber-red body with a good inch of fairly persistent off-white head. Smells amazing - grapefruit, orange, mint, pith, with hints of some caramel-toffee malts to balance. A really bright hop presence is very apparent, with lemon, grapefruit, mint, herb. A robust toffee-caramel maltiness with a slight tinge of butterscotch helps to balance this IPA. Medium in both carbonation and body makes this quite drinkable. Honestly, I cannot think of a bad thing to say about this beer. I am very impressed with this and am thrilled to have it in the summer multi-packs this year, though I'd love to see it in its own 6-packs and 12-packs by itself. Awesome.

never seen this Sam Adams before and they rarely make a beer that i don't enjoy so i figured this was a sure bet. It pours a really great looking copper color with a nice frothy white head. The smell is really great, a fine balance of malt and hops it really is a good smelling beer. The taste is awesome, maybe its the fact i haven't had an IPA in months but man on man this is good. Its hard to make a good IPA to be cheap, with the price of hops and all but Sam Adams does it again.

love it!

Found this at my local Krogers and was pleased to see another new summer beer from SA. This is a fantastic beer that has some bitterness but yet it has some sweetness to it as well. I hope SA makes this available in its own 6er. SA has beet hitting some home runs as of late.

This is a fine IPA. Looks good: bright copper color; smells good: citrusy grapfruity; tastes good: extremely well balanced between hop bitters and malty goodness. Mouthfeel is exceptionally smooth. Left an intriguing trail of lace down the side of the glass. Wonderfully drinkable. I think I'll have another.

Serving bottle

Appearance: Darkish amber which I didn't expect from the Samuel Adams Summer Pack

Smell: Very hoppy, hints of citrus and pine.

Taste: When it hits the mouth it's very citrus and pine flavored as previously stated, very full taste.

Feel: Very carbonated, nice full body.

Drinkability: Easy drinkability yet if you don't like a lot of bitterness this may turn you off however I very much enjoyed it.

A different take from the Nobile Pils, more cowbell! And more cowbell ye shall have .... Sam Adams does not do any 80 IBU or larger beers, probably because they try not to alter anybody pallet .... however, they did jack this one a bit!

Hoppy, zippity do da kind of notes!
