Arguably the best of the Samuel Adams Deconstructed series. Deep hops. Sweet with a slight bitter after taste. This entry holds its own against the best IPAs.

Pours light copper with a small white wisp. Aroma is pine and grapefruit hops with the same caramel sweetness from the malt. Taste is the best finish of the single hop beers with grapefruit and pine hops. Fun series.

Slightly hazy copper color with a thin pale head. Plenty of lacing. This one is all grapefruit. Very faint pine on the finish. Moderately hoppy, but no malt to be found. A bit one sided for my taste.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2014 Latitude 48 IPA mixed case, second bottle-- Pours a orange color with a small, white color head. Aroma is of soft citrusy fruit. The taste is tropical fruit and bold citrus with a bitter finish and a decent lip smack. Total wine.

Pours deep copper with a small white head. Aroma is pine, grapefruit, lemon. Taste is grapefruit, lemon, sweet and green apple. Palate is resin and bitter. My favorite of this series. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Really grapefruity with powerful bitterness. Mid notes of pine, medium resin. Some thinness to the hop profile, probably because it’s single hop. Not getting cattiness unless I try to convince myself of it. Caramel malt balances nicely in east coast style, but not as sweet as DFH. Great aroma. Clear golden orange appearance typical of the series with nice white head and lace.

degbert (1271) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 8, 2014
Bottle. Pours a dark gold-amber with orange highlights. High, lacy, large-grained head. Nose is big, with resinous and lime/grapefruit notes. Aggressive hops presence on the front of the tongue, but remains balanced throughout the mouth; butterscotch malt keeps the lime and rosemary notes in check. Good, basic IPA with a long, dry finish.

Bottle. This is a solid IPA. It is very well balanced. It has a nice hop flavor.

Orange-gold pour, big foamy head. Nice aroma of citrus, earth. Flavor is pine, citrus, very bitter, quite thin. Disappointing.

joejames (273) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 2, 2014
Bottle to English pint glass. Pours clear deep amber, 1 1/2 finger head, soapy lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, mango and lemon peel. Taste is wonderful pine/citrus bitter, some caramel malt sweetness for balance. Medium body, resin mouth feel, medium carbonation. Finishes bitter and sweet with notes of grapefruit, lemon, spruce and caramel, bitterness lingers nicely. Absolutely fantastic.
