Aroma: Carmel malt on the nose. Apricots come through Appearance: nice coper color with white 2 finger head pored from 12 oz bottle Taste: seems off balance to me. The bitterness of hops clash with malt backbone. Overall: a nice experience with the single hop varietal but very unbalanced and not something I would choose to drink again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle. Amber in color with an average off-white head. Aroma is of spicy hops, herbal, light grass, and malt. Taste is of herbal tea, malt, caramel, and earth.

travita (4157) - Frisco, Texas, USA - SEP 27, 2014
Bottle. The look is a chill haze, eggshell head, and bronze in color. The smell is florals, light fruits, noble hops, fir, and tar. The taste is similar, light bitterness, and caramel.

Beerathon (1284) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 26, 2014
Comes off like an English pale ale rather than an IPA. Hops are soft fruits and floral. Not much happening here. Mediocre.

My least favorite of the "Deconstructed" offerings. Too earthy, with a lingering, unpleasant aftertaste.

5000 (6299) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Bottle:   Soft earthy notes, moderate bitterness, a touch of tea leaves, simple, clean.   Very faint apricot or peach.   Light on the backside, bitterness fades leaving a little bit of hop oil.   Enjoyable, nice flavors, low bitterness.

Beer #1 of 6. Golden/copper color. Slushy head, a decent swath of lace. Aroma is sweet, caramel malts; candi sugars. The hops have an herbal quality. I do catch the apricot that is mentioned on the label; but it’s very subtle. Has a soil-like complexity; dirt. A touch of couch drop? The taste is a very sharp hop, that has a weed-like quality. Very try and extremely earthy. Touch of black licorice. Bergamot, like Earl Grey tea. The dry spiciness is overwhelming. Very cereal-heavy grain bill, almost like Grape-Nuts. Basement mustiness. Feels dry, fizzy, prickly. I’m not over the moon about this one, but it’s a solid beer. It’s no joke, and it’s no weak sister. The hops are strictly a bittering accent in this baby, and that’s quite all right.

Dark gold pour mild white head. Little lacing. Aroma mild bitterness, citrus and floral. Taste is mild. Smooth bitterness, some citrus. Maybe apricot. A little malty but good balance. Aftertaste a little off. Overall ok.
