A good entry in the Samuel Adams Deconstructed Series. A very bitter IPA. Not hoppy like traditional UPAs. A distinct & unique beer.

Pours copper with a small white frothy top. Aroma is earthy pine hop presence. Taste is pine and a touch of lemon hop with some light caramel sweetness coming from the malt.

Bottle from Latitude 48 deconstructed case--ok, I’m starting to dig this. The Hallertau isn’t so much of an IPA, again and I can swear that this had the flavor of a German type lager. It was a clear copper color with a medium-large, white head. Aroma of dry grass and caramel, the taste was slightly sweet and bready. Not much bitterness on the end. Total Wine.

Clear copper with a moderate pale head. Plenty of lacing. Very balanced. Carmel malt and a dry hop bite that isn’t overpowering. There’s almost a spiciness to it. That in conjunction with the malt profile gives it more of a Marzen character than that of your typical IPA, which is perfectly fine by me.

Floral notes. Gentle citrus and pine. Bitterness is gentle while still giving some IPA bite. Not a ton of hop flavor, but it’s a pleasant beer. Hallertau would go well in a simple malty beer with high levels of late hopping or a dry hop. A little bit of spice and some darker notes but mostly just pleasant. Not really an IPA.

Bottle. Same dark orange-amber and high, large-grained, lacy head as the rest in the series. Nose seems muted; it’s bread, orange, a touch of metallic, and what I can only call dusty nutmeg. There’s a bitterness on the tongue like weak black tea with lemon, followed by more muted spice notes, orange, and bready elements. Finish is long and whisper-thin; puts me in mind of instant iced tea powder. I don’t think this hop is strong enough on its own; in the end, it’s like beery Nestea.

Draft at Moriartys. Clear deep gold pour. Fizzy/foamy white head mostly disappeared. Citrus, resin hops. Medium-light caramel malts.

Gold pour, big white head. Light aroma of citrus, lemon, toffee, bread. Flavor is pretty minimal. Pine, flowers... whyyyyy

joejames (374) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Bottle to English pint glass. Pours clear golden/copper, one finger head that lingers. Aroma of pine, lemon zest, grass, caramel. Taste is earthy bitter with lightly sweet caramel backbone. Body is almost medium, slightly soapy mouth feel, carbonation is average for the style. Finishes lightly bitter with notes of lemon, grapefruit, spruce than caramel at the very end. Interesting.
