Sam Adams Double Agent IPL

I picked up a mixer twelve pack from Sam Adams today.  I love that they do these mixed 12-packs.  You get a chance to try seasonal beers, and to enjoy some Boston Lager (always two of them in any mixed pack).  I have always enjoyed Sam Adams beers, albeit some more than others, but today I’m actually quite excited about this Double Agent IPL!

Golden to tan and clear, some rising bubbles, a good head and good lacing, a good looking beer.

Aroma is pungently hoppy, smells like an IPA. Spicy, citrusy hops dominate the aroma, complimented by a little bit of maltiness.

Taste is again bold and hoppy, very nice!  Spicy, citrusy (grapefruit, lemon peel, orange peel), with a good balancing slightly sweet maltiness, bready and grassy, delicious!

Drink is off the charts. I just got done with school and I’m thirsty, it’s all I can do to keep from chugging it!

I would happily buy a twelve pack of this. Next time I’m in the grocery store, I’ll see if they have sixers or twelvskies.  I want more!

Great job on this one!

Sam Adams continues to produce fine products, and continues to be an example for any American brewery to look up to.

Cheers!
