Press Release

Samuel Adams Hopscape is one of two new seasonal brews released in 2017. This deep gold, medium-bodied wheat ale is the perfect stepping stone from winter’s bitter bite to a warmer spring. Its citrusy, dank resin and grapefruit rind aromas lead into a balanced flavor of bright citrus and piney hop character paired with notes of crisp, lightly sweet malt. Hopscape finishes with a smooth and slightly lingering bitterness.

 Aptly named, Hopscape is brewed with four varieties of West Coast hops: Chinook, Citra, Centennial and Zeus. Each variety adds bold notes of pine and juicy grapefruit to this deep golden wheat ale.

Pairing with Food: The citrusy, piney, and resinous notes that the hops contribute to Samuel Adams Hopscape are a great pairing for spicy foods. The crisp wheat character balances the spice. The peppery, allspice complexity of jerk chicken enhances the hop profile in this beer, while buffalo cucumbers’ mixture of heat and coolness mirror the beer’s balance between malt and hops.
