In my opinion, this is a traditional pale ale. It's not an IPA, much like Longhammer is not an IPA. It's darker, more malty, and very well balanced. The balancing by Sam Adams is actually becoming a detriment for me. My wife hates IPA's and yet liked this one. Point proven. Not bad if you like pale ales, but a misnomer. Sorry, Jim Koch - I used to love ya, but I had to leave ya. We'll always have Boston Lager...

a very pretty dark amber & thick head with amazing lacing throughout. A nice look for a beer. but that is where it ends for me. IPA's are suppost to follow basic hop rules par say but this beer just was not worth my time. to much on the hops, no flavor at all. pure bitterness. very heavy and a mouth feel of terrible. Not the worst IPA but damn close in my opinion.

I will review this beer only to say that I personally have not enjoyed any IPAs that I have tried. sorry, can't get past the insanely bitter hops. if anyone has any suggestions for me feel free to let me know, I strive to enjoy every beer this world has to offer.
