interesting mix of German, English and American hops. I had all the single hop deconstructed versions so now time for the version with them all in it.

Aroma leans floral with also some pine....

Taste is oily hop juice..earthy with a piney bitterness on the finish...malt lends light caramel.

Overall it does not turn out nearly as good as I was hoping for as I like all the hops included in this version. It's fine...definitely floral and fresh with a bit of cutting bitterness on the finish..the more I drink the more the bitterness on the finish flexes...

actually a pretty good rendition of a real IPA from what has become nearly a mainstream brewery. Sam Adams used to get respect as an alternative to the big breweries but has lost most of their cachet (or self-respect) nowadays and pumped out multiple nonsensical varieties. I still buy and drink Boston Lager (on sale) for lawnmowing and family gatherings, but most of their seasonal product is not that great. This one is good for the price, decently hoppy and not overpowering. Available only in mixed 12-packs as far as I can tell.
