I enjoyed this one. Truth is, I enjoy all hops, so these single hop offerings are of special interest to me... especially when "IPA" is on the label. Nice pour, a light caramel body with a sustained creamy head. The nose is both floral and earthy with a light malty sweetness beneath it. In the flavor, the malt is dry and grainy. The hops, although not intense, soon take over, floral and earthy with a tangy fruit flavoring. The bitterness is moderate but ever present and lasts long into the finish. Quite a pleasant surprise.

Bottle at home. Aroma is heavy earthy, herbal and woody hops with cracker malt and light pear esters. Pours clear amber with a medium, frothy white head, medium retention with light lacing. Flavor is moderate earthy and herbal hops, minty notes with light cracker malt and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

"more enjoyable than i thought it would be. with the kent goldings the only show in town, i actually kinda enjoyed the earthy nutiness and sweet malt combo, with a hint of tropical fruit in the flavor. not what i look for regularly in an ipa, but nice. more in the english style."

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

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.

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.
