I love IPA's and Samuel Adams normally but this is one of the poorest tasting craft IPA's that I have have ever had. The appearance and aroma are nice, but when I take a sip there is an overwhelming bitterness that drowns out the hoppy taste. And its not the bitter taste that I expect from a good IPA, but one thats quite undesirable. Apart from that and a citrusy flavor the beer is rather tasteless. The aftertaste is much the same as the taste of the beer. The bitter citrus flavor lingers in the mouth for far too long.

Maybe I got my six-pack from a bad batch?
