3.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Another good ipa from Sam Adams. The aroma is kind of classically grapefruit, but the taste is distinctive, sweeter, maybe tangerine.

Very weak aroma of hops with a trace of citrus. Clear caramel color no head.
Amazing taste of fruit, slightly sweet with a chalky feel, an apricot finish with a trace of bitterness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep amber, almost brown, with a fluffy bright white head, nice retention and lace. Strong grapefruit and pine hops on the nose with a bit of pepper. Crisp bitterness dominates the flavor, with notes of honey and caramel for balance. Medium body, creamy stickiness on the palate, lively carbonation, and a super clean finish.

Amber color with a sizable off white head. Aroma is a bit fruity, citrus with notes of orange. Flavor is citrus hops with a touch of orange. Some sweet malt balances out the hops. Very drinkable.

A clear reddish amber beer with a small white head. The aroma is tropical fruit and piney. The flavor is resinous and fruity, the best of the bunch.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, from Deconstructed 12 pack. Pours a deep clear copper color with a thick off white head that has somewhat good retention. Finally! Aroma is big tropical fruit with this one. Pineapple & bitter orange stand out. Flavor is really nice. Still with the sweet malt, but the hop notes.... WOW. Some grapefruit, some orange, and some resin. Body is medium with a crisp bitter finish. Nice one!

Samuel Adams Deconstructed series. The best of the batch! Regardless of brewer, you cannot go wrong with the Mosaic hops. A flavorful, hoppy beer with a hint of grapefruit.

Clear medium copper with a thin white head and plenty of lacing. Grassy and floral with pineapple and an almost minty finish. I like the uniqueness of this one.

Latitude 48 IPA mixed case, second bottle--ok, I’m digging this now, the first beer was more of an English ale, this one is more of an IPA. Pours a gold/orange color with a soft beige color head. Aroma is of soft citrusy fruit. The taste is orange and bold citrus with a bitter finish. Total wine
