Had a 3 ounce free sample at the local Buffalo Wild Wings earlier tonight on 12/17/14. My brother swears by this but since I really don't like IPA's, I decided to try it especially since it was on draught and didn't cost anything.

Pours a golden-yellow in color with a white head. Lots of lacing was seen when sipped. The aroma is of hops and pine for the most part. Pretty much the same for the taste and the typical bitter finish from the hops. Overall, I drank the 3 ounce sample and glad it wasn't a 12 ounce bottle because it wouldn't of been finished. Well...by me anyway since I don't like IPA's. MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Lightly hopped ipa, not much really standing out. For this many varieties of hops I would expect much more hop flavor. Overall just another well balanced ipa with some subtle spicy and floral hop notes behind a nice malt base.

Just stop!!!! Samuel Adams every beer you attempt to make a single flavorful selection is over powered by a single note. Its obvious this beer is too!!! Much Grapefruit. The smell and the horrible after taste is too strong of the fruit that you would make penicillin from. I wanted a hoppie beer as you advertised on the label not a overpowering grapefruit smirnoff ice.

Not bad, but not great. I'll drink it occasionally when on tap but not my first choice. Great beer to get people away from bud lite and the likes. Consider it a "beginners IPA" nothing too complex or too hoppy
