3.79/5  rDev +5.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

I have to say, this seems a bit desperate -- the legendary Sam Adams now resorts to copying smaller West Coast brewers with this admitted homage brew. Nonetheless, it's certainly a tasty and enjoyable IPA.

Pours a clean, clear golden amber with three fingers of white suds. Lace is thick, ornate, and absolutely stunning.

Nose is pleasantly citrus and pine hops, true to style and form.

Taste is crisp and packed with citrus, tropical, and pine hops resins. Malts come in late in the tasting, after the initial hops flavor rush. Reminds me a bit of Founders All Day IPA (which I love). This one is a highly drinkable, semi-sessionable IPA bursting with glorious hop layers.

4.05/5  rDev +13.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A- Out of the bottle, this beer pours golden yellow, white head lingers for only a short time
S- i cannot detect much in the way of aroma, more hop pine than malt
T- Nice bitter start and solid bitter finish, definite hits of tart grapefruit seem to dominate. I also get a tang (lactose) of sorts at the front
M- Carbonation helps with a peppery bite
O- Drinkable beer, I haven't had many West-Coast-Style beers, so perhaps I need more practice.
