Pours into a nonic a clear medium golden with a sticky one finger white that settles very slowly leaving two broken rings of lace behind as it settles .Mild leafy and citric hops along with some sugary sweetness,both are light.A decent shot of citric hops upfront on the palate along with a caramel biscuit base underneath,the hops are much more fruity than bitter wich surprised me a little.Not bad,it's not something to go spend alot of money on but would be good as a "starter" IPA for somebody.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Rocky head from the off white head forming thick, large bodied copper hue going on. Aroma has citric notes, big fruity hop notes, lemon, lime, and alpha acids come through each sniff. Flavor includes big fruitiness, caramelized malts, bitterness rolling through with hints of tropical fruits, dank resinous hops make their presence known but the actual beer doesn't do the style justice. Mouthfeel has a resinous hop oil slickness even carbonation not much going on other than the breadiness that finishes with most Sam Adams beers. Overall I can't wait to try more Sam Adams IPAs this happens to be their first shot at a West Coast style IPA it's getting closer.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Deep golden colored and crystal clear. An inch thick of off white head and Brussels lacing are present. The nose is a blend of tropical and piney hops with the former in the lead. The mouth initially provides a crisp coppery bitterness. The back of the palate is more of a tropical bitterness with notes of pineapple. The mouth provides a light stickiness.
