Pours cloudy gold orange color with a humongous 3 finger foamy snow white head that faded slowly and left excellent foamy lacing coating the sides.
Smells of floral hops, orange peel, lemon zest, coriander, wheat, grains, candied sugar and mild spices. Very soft nose that is mostly IPA, but a little bit wit beer as well, and very fragrant and nice to inhale.
Tastes like it smells with floral hops, orange peel, lemon zest, citrus hops, tangerine, coriander, wheat, grass, hay, lightly toasted grains, candied sugar and mild spices; light for an IPA, but very tasty, quenching and refreshing as the wheat and spices make this a perfect summer treat.
Mouthfeel is creamy and very smooth, with light carbonation, a medium body and a slightly bitter finish. Leaves a clean almost dry feel after each swallow, it was very easy to drink and another nice new creation from Sam Adams which I recommend trying.
This should not be lumped in with the IPA classification because it does not seem much like a traditional IPA, but it was enjoyable even if mis-classified.

12 oz bottle poured into A lager glass.
A - Hazy yellow-gold. Two inch white head that keeps retention throughout. Nice lacing.
S - Citrus and pine.
T - Slightly sweet fruit and malt ends in an unpleasant bitterness. Almost like ashes.
M - Medium/full
O - This is how it was after five minutes. The first few sips were tremendously hoppy. Let it sit a few minutes to savor it fully. Didn't care for the bitter aftertaste.
