sam third voyage 001.jpgThird of four reviews of the beers in the Samuel Adams Single Batch series.

A double IPA with 8 percent alcohol by volume and more than 90 International Bitterness Units, Third Voyage is a a multidimensional imperial India pale ale, not just a bitter hop bomb. Amber-orange with a plush cafe au lait head, it smells earthy and piney, with a lot of citrus, particularly oranges, in there as well. Does the world need another double IPA? Maybe.
