12 Oz Bottle poured into glass. It's important to buy these kind of beers within 2-3 months of bottling.
Look - mostly clear light amber colored, inch foam head relatively slow to fade and some lacing on glass
Smell - Lot of hop aroma: grapefruit and pine as is typical. Also getting orange peel, honeydew melon, and fresh cut grass
Taste - Very similar to the aroma. Get the hops with a strong taste up front of pine, bitter citrus, and sweet grass and then the caramel malt backbone evens it out. Tasty but not overly bitter IPA. Not egregiously filling but still medium-heavy body. Carbonation is medium.

If you like your IPA's with bitter flavors of grapefruit and pine this is a good one. Strong bitter flavors without being too bitter overall. I enjoy this beer and i think they make good IPA's in general. Give this beer an A-

Not sure what's going on with all these inflated reviews here. This beer taste horrible. Idk The BB date was May 2018 and I'm drinking it in beginning of August 2018. So its about 90 days passed BB. Have to try again in fresher form. It tasted like Bud Light. Absolutely no flavor at all. Wouldn't know that it was an iPA if not labeled so. Comparable to Merman IPA, but Merman is waaay better than this. I hope the latest Sam Adams NE ipa is decent. I will search for a fresher version and Update this review (if necessary).
