IPA made for the masses. No citrus, no grapfruit, light hops, pretty much PBR with a slight hoppy flavor added in to satisfy the lame name. Should be called Whitebread IPA.

this is pretty much the worst IPA i've ever had. tons of off flavors, and overall completely bland and characterless. Overly malty, with flavors of squash, peanut butter, balsamic reduction, and sponge. Little to no head retention, and no lacing. I would not waste any more money or time on this Samuel Adams product.

Picked up a can for $1.59 plus tax, what a waste of money! I would rather drink Natty Daddy.

It tastes like a bitter citronella candle, I'm cringing while writing this. Please somebody give me a Pabst! This stuff reminds me of Smirnoff with hops.

$1.59 wasted, this went down the drain.

Tastes more like a lager. barely any hoppy taste. It would be disrespectful to call this an ipa

Ended up throwing this out. Drank the first bottle and thought, that was disappointing. Looked at my brother as he took a swig and could read his dissatisfaction as well. I forced down one more, but the other three ended up staying in the fridge for...well, I think they still might be there, no, I did throw them away. Lousy IPA.
