Poured into a beer clean Sam Adams Boston Lager glass...

A) Frothy head dissipated quickly, but shows good lacing. Clear, deep gold colour.

S) pine, grassy and citrus from the hops, some malt underneath

T) Flavours of citrus, orange peel, pine and light bready notes. Quite bitter...

M) Dry, slightly dusty palate, lighter bodied, moderate carbonation, lingering bitter finish.

O) I liked the beer but thought it was a little harsh on the finish. I love IPAs and was expecting the bitterness, but it didn't feel balanced to me.

Drank this in Maui and I must say that this is spot on for the style. Hoppy and yet clean as the style demands. Great nose and great finish on this beer. Would buy it quite a bit if it was available in BC. I can see this style becoming a common one just like DIPAs and IDAs.
