look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12-oz bottle into angled glass mug

A - several fingers of light tan atop a beautiful transparent body of red-orange loaded with carbonation bubbles; nice trail of lace

S - floral hops, malts in the background; inviting

T - tasty medley of hops, slight malt backbone gives some balance, ripe fruit, pine, dry lingering aftertaste

M - thick full body; above-average carbonation; crisp and smooth

O - good-looking; inviting nose; somewhat balanced, but deliciously hoppy; nice full body
Well-done, Sam Adams!

Freshness Date best by March 2013.
Biggest difference is the beer is much fresher this time around.

Upgrading the taste to a 4 and the overall to a 3.75.

Original Review 6-4-12
Received in February as a gift for helping out a friend

Poured orange with a decent white head that is leaving lacing behind 4.0

Nose has hints of lemons and oranges 3.5

Taste is grassy and lemony hops with a caramel malt backing 3.5

Mouthfeel is pretty smooth for the style 4.0

Overall this is a pretty decent ipa, worthy of a try 3.5
