Boston Beer Company – Tasman Red IPA (American Amber)

  • 6.75% ABV
  • There is something odd going on with the taste, it is good but not something I have tasted before. Ohhh, I just read the bottle and they used some weird Australian (duhhh…) hop in it. That kind of makes me sad because I was looking forward to trying it and my first taste is from a Sam Adams. Oh well, this is still pretty good if a little strange tasting. I would really like to try the hops in a beer from another brewer to get a better taste for it. It is has a more pronounced citrus/pine taste than I am used to and the smell will take some getting used to also. Every one should try it for the new hops alone.
  • + Buy again

On a side note, it is nice to see Sam Adams brewing something new and interesting that doesn’t completely suck ass. Now if they would just stop suing other brewers.
