3.73/5  rDev +4.5%

A: Pours a bronze caramel color and solid single finger sized head.

S: Citrus-y floral notes. Some hops, but not an overwhelming scent.

T: Goes like this-> BAM malts BAM hops BAM ...water. Then strains of caramel linger on the tongue.

M: Very textured and carbonated. Not something you would want to slug down all night.

O: One of those where the second bottle is legaues better than the first for whatever reason. Not bad though, if I had my choice of any Sam Adams brew (that I have tried) it'd probably be this one.

Best by March, today is Jan 15. Solid regularly available IPA. Nothing that will make you say "wow" but good beer at a good value. ($7.99 sixer)

A - rich dark copper, solid eggshell head and good head retention

S - Caramel malt, some floral citrus and breadiness.

T - Much the same as the nose. Malty upfront reminding me this is east coast, then the citrus comes in, finishing dry and sweet at the same time. Bitterness is great actually. Caramel malts are showcased just above the hops. Not my style but not bad.

M - Creamy upfront, then finished dry and bitter. Would be easy to put down two of these but then I'd be looking to go onto something else.

O - I wish this one was a little less malty sweet. About on par with what I expected. Just a good IPA, nothing more, nothing less.

12oz bottle
Served in a pint glass

A - It has a deep, rich amber body. Three inches of beige head perches on top.

S - I get subtle floral and citrus aromas. I also noticed some caramel malt.

T - I get some caramel malt to start out. Then through the middle the citrus kicks in, and it finishes out with some bitter citrus.

M - Medium. It is very smooth without a lot of carbonation.

O - I wasn't impressed at first, but my second one got me thinking this is a solid IPA. It won't blow any minds, but it is affordable, and the taste is solid.
