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.

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.

Amber color with a thick head with good retention and leaving some laces.
Light aroma with predominant notes of peppery yeast, herbal and piney hops and a mild grapefruit.
Flavor of papaya, malt sweetness, herbal and floral notes, resin and grapefruit. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Medium body with appropriate carbonation.
I believe this could have been attenuated a bit more and I did not like the herbal papaya profile, at least pine kicks in at some point. Though this is not super fresh, expiring in a couple of months.
