To create this new Sam Adams beer, the brewer sourced its hops from the Hallertaü region of Germany. This is a premier hop growing region. By using a very different hop, the flavor is different from other varieties. For example this beer is citrus forward, in part due to the hops.
Additionally, the beer blends five different hops in the brewing process. This combination creates a cacophony of flavors. While smooth drinking, the flavor is fruit forward.
The new Sam Adams New England Pale Ale is considered a medium-bodied beer. The fruit flavor goes beyond citrus. Notes of peach and mango are subtle yet noticeable.
For the occasional IPA drinker, this beer will be a nice contrast to other IPAs on the market. It is noticeably less bitter yet maintains a quite rich flavor. Additionally, the ABV is 5.5%, which is a nice contrast to other heavier beer.
As the warmer weather approaches, this hazy, balanced beer will be perfect for gatherings, easy afternoons and weekend dinners. While rich in flavor, it has a drinkability that many people will enjoy.
