Very overlapping huge head when poured with a very dark malty red appearance. It has an amazing smell of some West Coast IPA's that I'ved smelled in the past. Definitely getting smells of earthy, pine, wood, herbal and grapefruit smells. I also get a sweet roasted smell that is reminiscent of caramel and oak. Its tastier than the Latitude 48 but that still is a really good beer as well.

The taste is spicy, resinous hops with a sweet malt somewhat similar to their malt backbone for their Latitude 48 but with some oak woody flavors and then ending with a grapefruit, pine, herbal and citrusy hop bitter tasting finish. I like this better than their Latitude 48 actually the malts come together more for a nicer oak, wood, caramel bready finish and the hops shine through it with all the flavors I mentioned above as well as some mintyness from the hops.

I'm very impressed with this beer from them it definitely stands up to other stronger IPA's that I've had and it seems like Samuel Adams has been really really kicking it up a notch these days with their quality and selection of their beers.

This was a delicious IPA. I brought this home from work cause I wanted a nice new IPA and i wasn't disappointed. So delicious. It poured a wonderful head that caked the glass with some silky smooth hops. Tasted so good. I'm pretty tired so this won;t be the most articulate review. It was just fucking delicious. A very good IPA from a brewery that I often take for granted cause they pump out a billion cases of Boston Lager every year. Sam still can make a great beer, and they did it again.
