Wow. Sam Adams did an incredible job here copying the hop profile of the popular Stone/Green Flas/San Diego IPA.
Seems to be a bit less bitter than others of this style , but the bottle I got must be fresh and is full of hoppiness.
Will get this again. Great, especially for the price.

Samuel Adams is not one of my favourite brewers by any means. I have enjoyed their White Ale and Cherry in the past, but this beer caught my eye at a Chevron gas station in the Magnolia/Plantersville Texas forest area last week. This was an unusual gas station as it was in the middle of nowhere and had an incredible selection of beer.
I usually go thru all the points of review and make note but I drank this straight from the bottle because I was at my parent's house and my dad would have a heart attack if I poured a beer into a glass. LOL
This beer is ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE. It's been a long time since I had an IPA that was truely refreshing. This beer is flavourful and balanced. It has every single solid great taste that IPAs should have. The hops are right out there in front. Grapefruit, citrus, pine, wood, malt.... It's so solid but somehow they managed to make it dry. Okay I know most of you can not stand the thought of a DRY BEER. But this is what dry beer was meant to be. You can take a sip or a chug and then the aftertaste fades into nothing. Your not gonna walk around with ashtray mouth after drinking this beer.
I'm not the most fluent beer snob. But this beer is amazing. In fact I just picked up another 6 pack today. And I have to say at 6.6 ABV, this beer will sneak up on you if your not careful.
Go buy some. Try it for yourself. I promise you that you won't hate it. You might not fall in love like I have. But you won't be sorry...
HAIL TO THE REDSKINS!!!

Bottle poured into shaker pint roughly-- three finger off white head with soild retention. Pale gold body with medium carbonation
Smooth mouthfeel, some lacing.
Smell: grapefruit and orange
Taste: PIne, resin, orange, and floral hop at the finish with a bite.
Overall, this is a grand beer; I'd buy this again in a heartbeat. Props to my wife for finding this gem.
Three traits that I love
1. Solid ABV
2. Crisp and refreshing
3. Not sour, funky or too fruity

Let's put it this way:
This is one of those intricate IPA's where you see a different ingredient and feel differently about it. For good reasons, though. The grapefruit honestly adds a touch of Blue Moon to it, but with the ABV of the IPA.
Hard to drink just one, but that isn't really a problem.
Love life and drink up,
I am a Sea Creature (look it up)
