Samuel Adams Third Voyage

Beer: Samuel Adams Third Voyage
Brewery: The Boston Beer Company
Style: Double IPA
ABV: 8.0%


Serving Style: Bottle
Glassware: Drinking glass
Primary Consumer: Kerensa



Sight: Medium amber, with a clear body and frothy beige head.

Smell: Citrusy, just like pineapple candy, with notes of pine and a little grass.

Flavor: Bitter hops, with a strong pineapple taste…is this a pineapple ale?  Also a little piny and a tad biscuity. The aftertaste is one part liquor and three parts bitter, and also a rich malt caramel.

Feel: You can feel the ABV via a warm sensation. Thin-to-medium mouthfeel, a tad oily, medium carbonation.

Concluding Remark:  Sam Adams’s Third Voyage Double IPA is like an alcoholic, sour, tropical citrus fruit juice. Not quite enough of an explosive hop profile that you would want from a Double IPA, but one of the better Sam Adams Hopology IPAs!
