Samuel Adams "Double Agent IPL"
Boston Beer Company - Boston, Massachusetts USA
India Pale lager (ABV 5%) (IBU 43)

[Suggested Glassware: Lager Glass]

Rating: 3.6/5.0

Aroma: 8/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 14/20

The pour was a crystal clear light orange with a large (2-3 finger) white fluffy head that diminished slowly, down to a few large puddles and large collar with good sticky lacing.

The aroma was of a grain malt, floral and pine hops and a moldy yeast with notes of caramel, citrus (grapefruit and orange peel) and a touch of tropical fruit.

The taste was nice and hoppy right off the bat with a slight floral taste and a touch of citrus and caramel early on, and then had a light bitter citrus peel presence take over along with a bold pine hop presence and had a light fruity ending. The flavor hung around for an average duration after the swallow, with a decent hoppy fruity taste left to settle on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was light in body and dry in texture with a lively carbonation.

Overall this was an exceptionally smooth and easy to drink brew, with a nice hoppy beginning and a mild fruitiness at the end...
