I get really fruity smells from the variety of cascade hops they use plus a melon smell with some sweet roasted malts. It smells reminiscent of their Latitude 48 but with a fruity melon and resinous twist to it from the hops they use. I also get a little bit of a spruce pine smell as well. This is a very smooth beer with the fruitiness right up front along with that melon taste just unveiling itself and then the sweet roasted caramel malts follow and then ending with the fruity citric piney herbal and spruce bitter finish.
It tastes like an earthy resinous very deep and rich flavored hoppy IPA all in one. It has a variety of complex hop flavors like I said ranging from melon and fruits in the beginning to a very nice herbal spruce pine finish. Its a perfect combination of the 2. It has a sweet silky body and mouthfeel and really in my mind matches up with a lot of the top notch DIPA's that I've had.
I love that you can't really taste the alcohol from this but can kinda sorta feel the heat in the throat just a tad. Other than that the alcohol taste is masked by the fruity melon hop tastes. Its like their Latitude 48 just with a more complex hop taste. Get this beer it proves Samuel Adams can make a more complex beer than a lot of people give them credit for and honestly in my opinion stands with the best IPA's I've tried from the West coast and East coast.

Color- light red amber. Medium head.
Aroma- crisp winter night in the pine forest.
Taste- starts silky with a balance of butter and hops with grapefruit jolly rancher candy notes finishing with a Dogfishhead butteryness.
Poured from 355 ml bottle into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass). Tasted March 2013.
