A- Amber, pillowy mringue like white head. Fades to soft splotches. Coats the glass well.
S- Scotch tape aroma. Very faint hops. There is something that reminds me of aloe vera. What little scent there is is hard to discern
T-Soft bitterness, meaty like, tastes slightly stale. As it warms though different flavors begin to take hold and I taste strawberry sucker with a slight alcohol twang. The hops and malt seem to meld together and its hard to discern which one you are tasting.
M.F.-Carbonation is right on. Not at all dry. I would probably say it could be a bit drier for my tastes.
O-This hop is lacking for a single hop IPA. I really dont understand why you would use this hop in a multiple hop ipa like lat. 48. Seems to me like it would be crushed by the stronger hops. Other than that it was a smooth beer and has that signature Sam Adams flavor to it.
