Beer Reviews: Samuel Adams Hopscape

After posting my first review here, I have decided to make it a regular feature on the blog, as often people are interested in viewing tasting notes before purchasing a beer.
As a rule I will only review beers that are on any of the three Lists on the top right corner of the blog.
Also these reviews are solely based on my drinking experience. On that note, on to today's review.
This beer is Samuel Adams new Spring Seasonal Hopscape. For those that remember from previous years, this is taking place of Cold Snap. Hopscape is available in 6 & 12-Packs plus it is one of six beers in the Brewnited Pack.
The beer appears a cloudy pale gold, with a fluffy rocky white head and great retention.
A fresh burst of piney hops scent jumps out at you, along with some sweet malty aroma.
The taste is a surprising citrussy juicy burst, reminiscent of grapefruit, that leads into a yeasty follow and finish, with ever so slight kiss of hops along for the ride.
There is a nice creamy feel, medium bodied, and lightly carbonated.
Overall this is a solid wheat beer, refreshing, flavorful, not much else to ask for, except, I wish the hops in the aroma would have continued on to the taste as well.
