3.33/5  rDev -4.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

this ipa is very hazy and has a nice golden hues to it, it poured w a nice white head and good lacing in the glass

the smell is nice hop floral upfront with notes of citrus and spices.

the taste is a little off for what I would want for an IPA and especially from what sam adams makes. Its still tastes very good but not my favorite IPA, a little to far on the harsh bitter side

good full body to this beer and is got the refreshing qualities of a wheat beer

overall this is a slightly better than average IPA and an EH beer from sam adams worth the try for the other beers in the brewers pack but not my favorite someone that enjoys IPA's a little more might enjoy this more

2.85/5  rDev -18.3%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

appearance is golden, a bit cloudy. Looks as if there are slight debris floating in dense beer. The smell reminds me of some bad orange juice. Not too appeasing. At least the taste is strong as an IPA should be. Hints of citrus then immediately goes downhill. Old musty OJ is all I think.
I would not recommend to a friend bottom line.
