this is pretty much the worst IPA i've ever had. tons of off flavors, and overall completely bland and characterless. Overly malty, with flavors of squash, peanut butter, balsamic reduction, and sponge. Little to no head retention, and no lacing. I would not waste any more money or time on this Samuel Adams product.

Budweiser with additional hops... Quite possibly the worst IPA I have ever had.

Terrible appearance - off yellow, slightly gold.

Pours like a foam bath - half the pour was foam in a traditional IPA tulip glass.

A hint of citrus smell. No pine.

Taste - chalky and bitter.. IBU?? 20 at best.

Just what I would expect from a SA - less than average at best. If you were new to IPA's and had this, you may not want to ever try another IPA again (fear factor).
