I have a problem with advertising drivel and the "brewed for the revolution" proudly stamped on this bottle really grinds my gears. Is SA going trying to tie in the "brewer patriot" theme? Is this for the craft beer revolution? And why brew this particular beverage for mutiny and not profit? Please tell me lest your uprising be in vain!

Gold with a thin, fast dissolving head. Smells like toasted grain with nary a hop to be found. Tastes like malt with a heavy, lethargic bitter at the end. Some orange citrus here and there but IPA worthy at all.

At first I thought my bottles were old but the best by date still has 2 months left. Then I thought it was just a bad bottle but I had another from that same 6 pack and it was just as bad. What a bummer. I've had this a couple times on draft and was really impressed that Sam Adams had stepped outside themselves to brew a quality west coast IPA but that doesn't seem to translate to the bottle at all.
