12 ounce bottle poured into a Nonic.

A: Pours a hazy peach color with a 1 finger head and nice lacing.

S: The smell is pretty interesting. Citrus hops and peach aromas along with some pine and wheat.

T: Much like the smell I'm getting citrus hops and peach flavors along with some biscuity malts. Good flavors, but they kind of get lost and jumbled together. Nothing really stands out like it should.

M: Medium bodied with good carbonation.

O: This is an interesting offering from Samuel Adams. It's easy to drink and pretty tasty, but doesn't wow me like some IPA's do these days. I'll be glad to drink one when available, but it's not one I'll be seeking out.
