look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Had on tap in a pint glass.

Pours a clear medium amber with a smallish head.

Lots of tropical fruit on the aroma with a decent amount of earthyness. There is actually quite a bit of dankness to this which is interesting. Not much at all in the way of malt.

More fruit up front in the taste but it is quickly replaced by tree bark and wet moss. Lots of Earth in this beer. More dankness along with a fairly high bitterness. Mouthfeel is full and sticky.

Overall, a really good example of the IIPA style and one of the better beers Samuel Adams brews.

Beer is a brown/amber color that pours a moderate sized tan head. Head has okay retention and leaves very heavy lacing. Has a very earthy smell, along with caramel malt, dark malts, and citrus (most noticably orange).

Taste is very similar to the aroma, an earthy, malty beer, with some orange and just a hint of grapefruit to balance it out. Mouthfeel is a little heavy with slightly above average carbonation for a DIPA

Samuel Adams Third Voyage. 8% ALC.leaves/VOL.
Hops: Cascade hops from the UK, New Zealand, and the US Simcoe brand hops. Malts: 2-row harrington, Metcalfe, and Copeland pale malts, caramalt, and honey malt. This unique double IPA takes the styles origins a step further. ...(I didn't bother to copy the verbiage on the label. Explains the name, goes on about something or another, blah, blah...blah.)

Clear, crimson coloring, big head, lace.

vibrant, hoppy aroma, with rich malt underneath. Grapefruit /caramel tango.

In the mouth, more of the same. Sturdy and slightly sweet malt backbone gives ample resistance to the hop blast. But this one is never too anything, no true assault here, no imbalance, no overwhelming intensity. Nothing wrong with that. And that's certainly nothing I'd expect form Samuel Adams, but…I'd love a surprise now and then.

Citrusy and earthy, for sure, a blend of English and American IPA style, with a sidetrip to the Southern Hemisphere. Nice, tasty, smooth, hoppy. Medium body, long, lingering bitter finish.

Coppery brown color. Brilliant clarity. Head quickly dissipates to just a minimal trace. The hop aroma is moderate, which seems underwhelming for a double IPA. The taste shows that while the aroma hops were almost sparingly used,they were mainly used for the taste. Sticky Mouthfeel is typical of the style. Grapefruit like flavor hops are strong on the palate. That hop flavor slowly burns away in the aftertaste.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into an IPA glass. Pours a yellow amber with a fluffy white head. Smells of citrus and piney hops, very bright and nice. Tastes of very bitter earthy hops, quite nice. Beer goes down fine with medium body, but is sklightly over carbonated. Overall, a very good beer.
