White IPAs are my all time favorite type of beer. They are not always the most easy to find in stores (I usually find them in summer months in breweries/on tap), so I thought I'd give Samuel Adams a go. And, this was by far one of my least favorite beers I have ever tried. It tastes like straight up orange peels, no depth at all. Disappointed.

This is my 4th time having this beer. Poured into a Winking Lizard pilsner glass.

Appearance - A clumpy, uneven head. Highly carbonated with huge chunks of yeast floating around. The beer is a gross, chunky, bathroom-swill yellow. The yeast looks like giblets of lard.

Smell - Light hops and citrus. Nothing special. Does not smell fresh at all -though its best-by date is July. A bit of a rotten smell that is somewhere between body odor and dead lawn grass sitting in the back of a mower.

Taste - A very below average IPA. The hops are far from fresh or sweet. Dead grass lingers in the aftertaste. Funky and lightly bitter, but not in a good way. No delicious nectar qualities or citrus notes. This beer is a true drag to drink.

Mouthfeel and Drinkability - There's no real backing to this beer whatsoever. This beer is horrifically bland from start to finish. Plain, bland, dull . . . the thesaurus doesn't have enough synonyms for the word boring to describe this beer. Dry mouthfeel. Dry personality. I don't get any spice, apricot, or light fruits as others noted make this a witbier/ipa hybrid.

Very nasty beer. Pours a hazy golden color with a small head and a lot of sediment floating in it. Super hoppy taste and smell overly carbonated and a harsh swallow. Would not recommend to ANYONE.
