Most people know Sam Adams for their popular “Boston Lager” but over the years, they have struggled to keep the interest of craft beer drinkers in such a flooded market. That is where there nano-brewery comes in. They design and test small batch beers and pick the best for larger productions such as their New England IPA. The brewers use a blend of Galaxy, Simcoe, Mosaic, Citra, Cascade hops to achieve a nice flavor profile with pineapple and grapefruit notes. It is a medium bodied IPA that pours a pale hazy yellow color and has a juicy mouthfeel.
