This one pours a cloudy white blonde. with a shaving cream think head that takes more than several minutes to settle down leaving behind a thick and hearty bit of lacing on the glass, very nice so far.

The nose is like a pine forest in spring after a rain, sweet and fragrant like the hops that dominate this IPA.

The taste is a dry and complex malt that is subdued nicely by the hops.

The mouth feel is full bodied and well textured.

The Sam Adams folks have outdone themselves on this one. I really like it and will gladly buy it again. I highly recommend this one if you are a hop head.

This pours a cloudy amber orange color with a foamy white head. The scent is strong with hops mixed with wheat and citrus. The taste is smooth and rich with hoppy goodness that delivers a strong bitter bite. I was pretty shocked by the taste of this beer for being the lower tier of the Sam Adams line. Really tasty and overall a really well made beer!
