Bottle at my in laws, poured into a pint glass. Coppery amber color small foamy head with ok retention. Caramel malt, light pine fill the nose. A malt centric IPA this one is, caramel malt provide the backbone with balance coming from pine, citrus, and grass. Mouth is light and buttery. Yum.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle (from a mixed 6 pack) into a Shiner pint.

The brew is a coppery/red/dark yellow and has a quickly dissappearing off white 1 finger head with fairly nice ringed lacing on the glass.

The aroma is very nice amber malts and citrusy hops.

The flavor follows the nose witth the citrus hops taking the lead with the malts bringing up the rear.

Nice medium mouthfeel, with nice carbination (still have tiny bubbles surfacing 3/4's of the way through the pint).

This is a very nice American IPA. Not on the same level as Lagunitas Sux or 2 Hearted or Ballast Point, but still very nice brew.

For me and the style guidelines a definate B+ brew.

This beer has an amber hue, and the nose is sort of earthy, mildly hoppy, and actually pretty decent nose and look overall. Taste if basically what I would expect from an IPA, but maybe a little bit more on the malty side then west coast style IPAs. Pretty good carbonation. I will admit, I sometimes I feel I am too harsh on Sam Adams... this certainly is not the best IPa I have ever drank, but it's quite drinkable, and is pretty decent taste wise. It is also reasonably priced, and available all over. So in my mind, for these reasons, it is a pretty good beer.
