4.05/5  rDev +11.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

12oz brown bottle with a freshness date on the label.

Ample amount of suds, lacing on the glass and a perfectly clear ale golden color. Spicy oily hop meets a delicate but pronounced floral aroma, some fresh cracker like maltiness as well. Crispness is there and the body is a bit bigger than I expected though I really should have expected it ... its a Sam Adams trait. Heavy spoonful of malt followed by a spicy herbal hop and then a more unique spicy jasmine floral tone which balances the malt and provides some depth. Spicy and dry malty finish.

The ale has "Extreme Session Beer" written all over it ... thanks Sam Adams for continuing to define what an extreme beer can be and that it can be subtle. Being this beer is aimed for summer time consumption I highly recommend it.
