Draft pour at special brews. Pours a copper color with no head really. Kind of a tropical aroma with some malt. Sweet malty flavor with a bitter hop finish that is a little overpowering. Decent IPA here, but not a real standout.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Copper in color, very clear. The head almost completely disappears, but it gives a frosty reminder of its presence on the side of the glass.
The aroma is bread crust, touch if spicy rye. Hops are resinous, but dry, like an oak table; sawdust? It’s overtly woody, but like older, carved wood. Stained wood.
The flavor is more stained oak; rye bread spices. Touches of soil-covered oranges and earthy tangerines.
Creamy feeling, a little prickly. It’s a very solid pale ale; this might have been an above-the-line IPA about 8 years ago, and just because it’s at-the-line now doesn’t mean it’s a lesser beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Given to me by a friend at my birthday party, enjoyed on a steamy mid-August work night. I think this is my favorite from the Deconstructed offerings I’ve had so far. Appearance is a darker gold with a thin white rim around the glass. Aroma is light and faint, nice light spice note, light malt. Taste goes down lightly crisp with an equally light bitterness, light pineapple / tropical fruit in the backend. Good stuff.

A nice gold color, not much head to it. A good scent but a bit light in taste and no aftertaste. It seems to have a little maltish taste, not much of an IPA taste.
