Clear, deep golden color. Thick, frothy head with lots of lacing. Citrusy flavor gives way to floral hops and a good bitterness from the hops which lingers for a bit. Not the best IPA I've ever had, but not bad.

Had long neck bottle poured into frosted mug at a restaurant. I'm new to drinking beers and the only other IPA I have ever had was Sierra Nevada Torpedo Ale. This IPA was very good.

Got to have this on draft at the local B-Dubs. Here goes:

A: Rather nice, actually. Clear orange-amber with a decent head - leaves a lot of lacing as well. Carbonation was very ample.

S: Piney, some grapefruit, and a touch of caramel malt. However, the scents are somewhat mellow - not nearly as robust as in other IPA's. In that regard, the beer is somewhat lacking.

T: Definite WC IPA. Pine, grapefruit, and some grassy/floral hops. Tastes pretty sweet owing to the combination of pine and caramel malt. Good.

F: Very well carbonation.

O: Good beer. Better than expected.

A surprisingly very good example of an IPA. Very nice color and look, nice assertive smell, overall very nice taste with a quality kick from the Hops,and a nip in the mouthfeel without being too bitter.
One of S.A. best shows of a "Craft" beer and one I feel I will be purchasing again.

Hoppy and bitter and not much else. Doesn't seem to have the right mouthfeel

Another mediocre IPA from Sam Adams. Would not go out of your way to try this. If there is nothing else, it is okay.

Very little flavor - barely noticeable hops. Definitely not what I was expecting from an IPA.
