i like sam adams juniper ipa- this beer is a good ipa without having to be a huge hop bomb. there is a little something different going on here- i can only assume its the juniper berries....ive never eaten juniper berries so i cant peg the flavor. there is a light freshness to this beer. this ipa has a crisp lightness yet maintains its full flavor. i am a boston beer company fan and they are still making quality beers.

One of the selections from the Winter Selection Variety Pack.
Pours a crystal clear bright amber with an off white, tan head that has good retention and side glass lacing.
Real hoppy aroma of citrus (lemon and orange peel) and some pine nuts as well as a bacground of roasty malts.
Taste is creamy, not thin with a medium body, extra dry, hops almost create a pucker. has a good hop, malt balance as hops lead, roasty malts enter, and puckering hops finish with a dry almost tart after taste.
A good IPA that I liked.

Poured into a 13 oz tulip glass. Pours a bright orange red, with a one inch white head that leaves behind some lace. Smell is like wreath, grapefruit, coriander, lemon, and I guess juniper. Taste is lots of juniper/Christmas tree, grapefruit, and honey. Body is medium, nice amount life, not dry, and goes down well. I like it, something different for the holidays.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance - an amber color, with a finger-width head.

Smell - that pine/citrus/hoppy smell with a hint of sweet berries.

Taste - like the smell; pine/citrus/hoppy; with the berries sweetness mellowing out the bitterness from the hops.

Mouthfeel - full-bodied, sticks to your mouth like most ipa's.

Overall - out of the Samuel Adams IPAs this is probably my favorite, since that berry sweetness mellows out the hops at the end.
