3.5/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Hazy, dirty orange color with a two finger cream-white colored head. Lace initially looks like it'll stick but with a few swirls it fades away.

S: Sweet saltine cracker grains, floral candy, citrus, and some various tropical scents. Aroma as a whole is very soft, somewhat clean, and easy on the nose.

T: Light sweet malt, some fruity citrus hop, and more of a bitter hop presence than anything else. The balance isn't great on this but its still enjoyable. The freshness is key.

M: Basically smooth, stirred up by abundant carbonation, and complimented by the bitterness. Texture is lightly syrupy and a touch resinous. Medium-light body.

O: This is a pretty good beer. Not very exciting as an IPA, but refreshing and enjoyable as a summer beer. The title of this beer is a little off to me. I would expect something titled Freedom American IPA to be loaded with all sorts of hop flavor, and with a more creative edge. This IPA has characteristics reminiscent of a mellow English IPA. Not to mention this seems more like a Pale Ale.

12 ounce bottle -> Samuel Adams Perfect Pint glass

A - hazy and about the color of peach juice with a large foamy white head, great retention and great lacing.

S - powerful nose with big lemon and bready notes

T - hop forward with a weak malt profile with a sour lemon taste and a tart spicy finish. There is some alcohol present.

M - kind of thick for a beer of this sort

O - pretty average
