Samuel Adams New England IPA

Samuel Adams New England IPA

Born in the nano-brewery in Boston, MA, the Sam Adams New England IPA is a bold and smooth beer that’s medium bodied and full of citrus. The slight sweetness in this IPA is perfectly balanced by the pineapple notes and grapefruit hop character. I love hops but I know for some it can be too bitter […]
