Served in the sexy, curvy Samuel Adams glass. Clear golden body with moderate effervescence. An inch and a half of foamy white head. Aromas of lager yeast, piney hops, biscuit malt, earth and floral notes. Almost like a hoppier version of Samuel Adams Boston Lager. Medium bitterness. Clean and refreshing. Lasting notes of earthy hops and a bitter tang. Honestly, this is much better than I expected. I haven't been too impressed with the many hoppy offerings in the Samuel Adams lineup, but I'd have this again.

BBD 9/14. Pours a light amber, just a shade above golden, with a slight ruby tint. Massive head with superb lacing and retention. Nice light nose of citrus, grapefruit and sweet tropical, over a bit of biscuit. Light medium body with a smooth texture. Slightly above normal carbonation which imparts a nice effervescence on the finish. The flavor profile is a blend of hop flavor with very little bitterness. The hop flavor is citric, with a focus on grapefruit initially. The middle gets more tropical and ends with a nice biscuit crispness. On the finish, a nice light grapefruit rind bitterness lingers a bit.

Poured a dark gold body with good head and lace. The aroma is mostly hoppy with a little bit of grainy malts in there. These citric hops dominate the flavor profile but the beer is more fuller body and not quite smooth like some IPAs. Not much sweetness in this beer as it is mostly dry and hoppy. Easy finish and a good, hearty, filling beer worth sipping on.
