12oz bottle into a hefeweizen glass
Best before: April 2013

A: Pours a golden yellow with 2.5 fingers width of sea foam white colored head. Leaves tons of layered lacing all the way down the glass.

S: Big dank resinous hops. Juniper and pine. A touch of citrus. The aroma is reminiscent of Masala Mama, and yes I am being serious. I love the huge resinous notes.

T: Significantly more wheat flavors than on the nose. Spicy hops and bitterness. Touches of citrus. Very good, but doesn't live up to the nose.

M/D: Medium bodied, crisp carbonation on the higher end of the spectrum. Drinkability is good.

O: Overall, what a nice surprise. Is it just me or is Sam Adams stepping up their game? One of the better Sam Adams offerings Ive tried. I would certainly drink this again.
