Not your typical IPA. but i will say i wasvery bias when buying this because i do love my sam adams. appearance i would say is a nice amber brown, and tatse kinda like a flower. veerrryy floral taste that almost is over powering. the after taste is actually a settling citrus flavor that i do enjoy. the mouthfeel of this is little to no carbonation and i really wouldnt say its amazing or anything. drinkability is actually just a little above normal. the finish is well worth the beer though because it leaves you wanting more.

Reviewed January 9, 2013. Poured a 12 oz bottle (notched AUG 2013) into a pint glass.

A: A beautiful one fingered head. Slightly cloudy body, but leans on the clear side. Body is a pleasant dark golden amber. Malts appear bountiful.
The lacing is a nice cream that follows the head nicely. Carbonation bubbles rise nicely as well.

S: The aromas are very subtle. Grapefruit hops and mellows malts, but nothing bold or spectacular.

T: This is an IPA that falls more on the maltier side of IPAs. Bitterness is present, but not something that murders taste buds.

M: The body leans on the thin side. Carb is above medium.

O: This is nothing spectacular, but it is an IPA that one could start the night with or just make a session out of.
