look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Clear. Blood orange red.
Smell: Pine and grapefruit.
Taste: Bitter, grapefruit and pine. Alcoholic. Slight sweet, honey aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Moderate carbonation.

I really, really like this beer. The color is gorgeous. The smell is a delightful bitter pine and grapefruit. The hops are excellent and not overwhelming; yet, very hoppy still. It is refreshing. The hoppy bitterness is full and ends with a very tasteful sweetness. All around, I wish this beer would be brewed year round and not just for Long Shot. If Sam Adams continued to offer it, it would certainly be one of the best that they do. I would get this again definitely. Congrats to the homebrewer.

L-Clear amber color topped with a medium khaki colored head. Head fades slowly and leaves some nice lace rings on the glass.

S- Mild hop notes mostly floral and grassy, a bit of caramel and toffee in there as well.

T- Slightly bitter floral hops to start things off, they are soon balanced out by a caramel malt backbone with a dry finish and a final lingering note of floral hops.

M- Medium in body and carbonation, somewhat creamy on the palate. Mostly clean finish a bit of hop oil in there but nothing unpleasant.

O- Nice beer, nothing spectacular but a solid effort. The 7.8% ABV is well hidden and provides a nice kick as well. Got to love Sam’s homebrew contest, I can never say enough good things about it.

Pours a clear dark amber, with a massive light tan head. Incredible lacing. Aromas of fragrant flowers, and brown sugar. Taste begins with a huge caramel malt flavor, then some lemon, then a massive pine cone, resin finish. Mouthfeel is rich. Overall a good beer, though I prefer more citrus in my IPA's.

Part of the 2013 Samuel Adams LongShot Pack - Bullock's Wine & Spirits in Marietta, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a rust-toned, amber body with brilliant clarity and a medium-small, brief, near white head.

Smell: Toasted breadcrusts (and touches of dark brown sugar) superimposed with hoppy notes smelling a bit spicy, woodsy, leafy, but, also a little bit fruity (grapefruit).

Taste: Breadcrusts, moderately toasted, with a mingled of caramel and brown sugar sweetness. Then, in comes the spicy, lightly resinous, woodsy, leafy hops with, again, like with the aroma, some fruitiness, citrus leaning, mainly grapefruit. Medium-high bitterness. Small snippet of garlic chives. Tangy, bitter, hoppy finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation. Smooth, not-quite-chewy mouthfeel.

Overall: Not a bad bitter brew.
