Samuel Adams Nitro IPA

The Samuel Adams line of beers are from the Boston Brewing Company of Boston, Massachusetts.  This 7.5% ABV India Pale Ale is one of their three new canned nitro beers.

The beer pours a clear orange honey golden, after the initial cascading surge clears. There is a half-inch of creamy, creamy off-white head that leaves thick curtains of lace down the glass. The aroma is a blast of citrus, lemon, orange, tangerine, lime. The taste is a blast of citrus, bright, oily, with a lingering hint of pine. The beer drinks beyond smooth, creamy. The finish is moderately to strongly bitter. This is an interesting beer, and I would say it exceeded my expectations, but on the other hand, I don't know how many of them I would want to drink.
