Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Shaker pint glass, "best by" date October 2014.

APPEARANCE: pours a clear amber color with one finger off-white head that dissipated quickly leaving a thin unbroken layer of bubbles, medium carbonation, there was significant lacing on the glass.

SMELL: caramel, bread and pine.

TASTE: the taste follows the nose, initially sweet caramel, bread and then a mild piney hop profile, this is a well balanced beer.

PALATE: medium body and carbonation.

OVERALL: this is the best one so far, apparently I have a preference for the Simcoe hop, this is a nice hop that does not overpower you, very balanced IPA, I would definitely buy this again, Sam Adams had a great idea to deconstruct an IPA blend, I'm learning a lot about my own preferences, thank you Jim Koch!

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a mason jar: color is copper, transparent, head is light tan, presents 1/4 inch thick then dissipates to a ring and some lacing on the glass.

Aroma is very pleasant, nice balance of malt, subtle caramel note, light biscuit, hop and bitter aromas are very nice, crisp, mix of grass and pine.

Taste is also very good: again a solid balanced profile, hops are crisp, bitter more earth and pine than citrus; malt is clean, light caramel notes, some biscuit and toast.

Mouthfeel is definitely more towards a lingering bitterness and nice dryness, a touch of sweetness than some drier ipas but acceptable and accentuating to the type of ale.

Overall, a great brew, clean flavors and good presence

A: crystal clear; bonze colored; 3 finger off white head that receded slowly and unevenly to a thick cap; moderate lacing;

S: muted; cat pee from the simcoe, but not as strong as I expected;

T: earthy up front; pine comes out mid-palate; moderate bitterness on the finish;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation;

O: always a fan of simcoe;
