Tastes more like a lager. barely any hoppy taste. It would be disrespectful to call this an ipa

Good flavor but not enough of a finish. Took me a few 12 pks to get bored of it. Overall worth a try especially for the price range.

Good effort on Sam's part. Not sure if the nailed the "West Coast" taste but have to be honest first Sam I have liked in while. Everyone has their own taste, I love super hoppy IPA's, this would be a great beginners IPA I think. But my opinion doesn't count. Cheers!! Passion for the Craft.

Good beer. Not going to blow you away but very solid. When you find yourself in a strange town gas station with limited options in need of a six pack its a great go to. don't be ashamed. No one is watching
