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

12oz bottle, best by Feb 2011.

Pours clear copper/amber with a two finger off-white head that leaves rings of lacing and holds a good foamy cap.

Aroma is some citrus, floral, pine and grassy hops with some caramel malt. Good strength.

Flavor is citrus/grapefruit rind, somewhat resinous and earthy, some pine, a moderate caramel malt presence to balance the solid bitterness. Finishes mostly dry.

Medium bodied, can get a tad sticky, medium to high carbonation.

A solid IPA and one of the better beers I've had from Sam Adams.

Served in a pint glass

A : deep amber very little head

S : light hop and faint sweet

T : roasted, bitterness, almost burnt flavor

M : dry with a small bite

D : one or two maybe paired with seasoned beef

I had high hopes for this one, it's O.K. but I'm moderately disappointed
