Return to List

Brewed with more than five pounds of hops per barrel and dry-hopped with five American hop varieties from the Pacific Northwest—Amarillo, Cascade, Centennial, Simcoe and Zeus—this bold DIPA is not short on personality. In fact, it's abundant in hop-derived characteristics, including aromas and flavors of ripe tropical fruit, honeyed melon, sweet citrus, fresh grass, hop resin and earthy spice. In true Sam Adams fashion, the malty backbone is at the forefront of the palate, grounding the mélange of hop flavors in lightly sweet, toasted-grain goodness. At 85 IBUs, it's a hoppy beer, but it's also a harmonious and well-balanced one. Lauren Buzzeo
