Poured from the bottle into a pokal glass.
A real nice bronzed body, nearly crystal clear with nice rising pinhead carbonation in the middle, lemon hues at the bottom. Head is frothy white and three fingers with very good retention settling to a nice island and some swiss cheese like bubbles. Really nice looking beer here.
Nose is soft citrus lime and wonderful chewy zesty hop front. Hints of spritzy character, and a wonderful aromatic citrus of lemon lime and hinting tropical notes. Not much else though, but very enjoyable.
Palate hints with a noticeable thick sweetness of malts, but the lime hop bitterness comes in to balance it out. Still borderline syrupy and hinting towards fussel boozy character, but the beer feels bigger than it's five percent abv hints at. Sharp aftertaste on the finish with a hint of crispness as well, with the hop angle rolling along nicely on the palate.
This is a real enjoyable beer, glad I picked this up.

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.
