Consumed May 27th, 2013.

Beer pours a clear orange/honey color. Very nice foamy, one-finger off-white head.

Aroma is gingerbread and other dark baked cookies. Slightly peppery as well.

Terribly sweet flavor. Somewhat metallic. Very bitter hop presence. Unsophisticated and borderline undrinkable to this non-hophead.

Medium mouthfeel and decent carbonation.

Not a fan. Won't be drinking this one again unless it's a free pour.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Bright copper; huge, tan, frothy head, long lasting

Aroma: Mostly bready, with a slight hint of grapefruit; slightly earthy

Taste: Hits you up front with strong hop bitterness, then moves quickly into a malty, warming alcohol, slightly syrupy; then finishes dry and slightly bitter; pretty unique

Remarks: 8% alcohol per volume

Did not score A, T, S, M at that time; disregard those scores

Sam Adams Third Voyage Double IPA: Dark copper to reddish body that is topped by an ample off white head, but the lasing is so so. The aroma is more malt than hops. The flavor follows suit, it is very malty for a double IPA, but all Sam Adams product favor malt over hops. I must admit there are some good flavors swirling around in the glass, hints of licorice and caramel, and piney resin. I wish that hops would be a little more bold. Overall, a better Sam Adams product than most.
