nice golden color one finger head and lots of sticky lace. aroma of citrus and ripe fruit in the nose as well as the taste. smooth medium mouthfeel and carbonation is good not overly hopped or leaving you with a bitter taste on the finish. i would buy it again.

03/18/14 From bottle.

It's not you it's me. Famous last words that we have probably all heard.

In this case it's my aversion to hops that cleaves the divide. The label says "It's everything we love about West Coast IPAs." Well, it's everything I dislike about West Coast IPAs. Too many different types in too big quantities. Hop overkill.

One might ask why, if I don't like hoppy beers, would I try this. Mainly I think the folks at Sam Adams deserve an open, honest take on whatever they feel is worth the effort.

I've had worse & I've had better. The lack of balance & finesse slams through.

All the more for the hops heads, I guess. To each his zone.
