I hate to say it, but Sam Adams really just doesn't know how to brew an IPA.

This is one of the better ones I've had from them and it's still not great.

Delicious malty backbone. The Tasmanian hops are subdued slightly by the malts, but still add a very nice citrus bitterness to the brew.
Overall, a really good beer that does not fit my profile for a typical IPA, and it looks great too.
