Murky, dark copper color. Floral and some citrus hops on the aroma. Taste is floral, citrus, a nice bitter bite and quite a bit of malt sweetness balancing things out. Not a bad mod of Crooked Tree.

Older bottle as the yeast seemed really built up on the bottom of the glass. Nice white head with good lacing. Cloudy amber color. Nose is that familiar cascade citrus and floral aroma. Some sweetness. Very clean aroma and taste. Taste is citrusy, floral and well balanced by malts. Medium to light body with a bit of bitter bite. Crisp and clean finish. Quite enjoyable, if not as dynamic as the beer it is based on.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is grapefruit, orange, a weird spice that reminds me of peppercorns. Appearance is a pretty dark amber, unfiltered so nothing is getting through, looks like apple cider. Taste is immediately malt, then a weird balancing act between malt and hops that makes it taste light in flavor, finishes somewhat bitter but definitely missing it. Mouthfeel is nice, decently thick with moderate carbonation and the flavor hangs a bit. Overall, though not bad, I am a touch disappointed because of how much I enjoy regular Crooked Tree. Still, worth trying.

I hope this is the last of the deconstructed nonsense! Look, it is okay--just okay. This will be the last time I try this beer and its lineup. 12oz pour.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from the bottle into a nice bright orange color. A smooth foamed head. An interesting aroma. Fresh pine aroma with a citrus feel. Taste really goes with the aroma. Very interesting with both piney hop flavors and tropical. I would have to say leaning a little more towards the piney notes. A slight nail polish remover note in the end. Still very drinkable.
