Nothing wrong here: Itís a smooth, very German-feeling beverage. Although it is well-balanced, it doesnít do too much for me--little earthy. Serving size: 12oz bottle.

12 oz bottle. Pours amber with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of citrusy hops, bready and caramel malt. Body is medium and crisp. Citrusy, piney, grassy hops balanced by caramel malt and some fruity notes. Finish is medium and dry. Very mild hop character for AIPA.

While interesting, Hallertau Mittelfrueh is one of the ales in the Deconstructed lineup that just doesnít quite work. I canít fault the appearance. The burnt orange body and smooth head are great. The peach aroma is very nice, but the ale needs a great deal of agitation before itís willing to unleash the decidedly soft scent. The earthy bitterness is okay, but it appears only for a short time. The rest of the flavor is quite flat. In short, this variety of Noble hops doesnít produce enough flavor and aroma to make a viable single-hop IPA. Still, itís an intriguing interpretation of this hopís character.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle dated Oct 2014. The pour is an attractive looking medium amber with a modest head and great clarity. The aroma is more of caramel malts than hops but the hops do get in there a little. The body is medium with a level of acidity. The taste is far more malty than the nose suggests and there is a decent bitterness at the end. This is very much like an amber ale.

Tell me that this isnít totally cool. Custom made for our style brewmania! I chose to start with the more delicate hallertau hop to see what happens.... Typical look--copper amber color, clear. Good initial ring lace. A fine head that settles to a thin bubble layer. Absolutely beautiful aroma that reminds me of the finer Czech pilsners, not that that is surprising. Floral and succulent. Excellent darker pale malt base. In short, a superb smell. The taste is harshly bitter with almost a hot pepper bite. The swallow is particularly dry-ish and lip-smacking. The aftertaste seems to last forever and is like sucking on a hop pellet. Not very balanced. I like the body--a bit above average with a carbonation level to match.

(Backlog) 12 oz bottle. Clear look, copper colored, thinner light tan beige colored head. The smell is spicy, herbal hop quality, pleasant, seemingly what you would want and expect out of this hop. The taste is light bitterness, 2nd lightest of the set, more subtle in context a

A - Copper amber body with an active off-white head. S - Buttery croissant bread, grassy hops, orange citrus. T - Lemon grassy hops, peppery spice, toasted grainy malt, hints of artificial fruit in the background. The malt turns bready and sweet toward the end with the grassy hops holding on strong through the finish. M - Medium bodied, crisp, medium carbonation. This reminded me of an English bitter except for the malt. Doesnít hold up as an IPA but good and interesting beer nonetheless. Serving type: bottle 05-17-2011

from notes: lots of smoke with this beer. pours a thick frothy head and transparent copper. the aroma is citrusy pine, floral, and orange. the taste is very good. sort of a mix of citrusy pine hop bitterness up front and a very bready aftertaste.

Clear and bright amber beer, good white head. Semi soft and semi dry palate. Fresh orange hops but with a bitter edge that keeps going. Dry finish with a carbonated sting. Nice orange!

The beer appears clear and orange to copper in color, with a dense inch of off-white head. Plenty of lacing clings to the pint glass. The aroma offers hops, lemon zest, malt, pine. Decent flavor, with additional notes of toasted bread. Another balanced IPA, this one has a healthy malt presence. Lingering bitterness, with pine, toast, and dank hops. Medium bodied, with solid carbonation. Overall, a decent beer, but not a great IPA. One of the better beers in this series, in my opinion. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 09-13-2011
