COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our new 2013 release features Mosaic hops, a new hop from the Pacific Northwest. They add a burst of citrus notes to the distinctive layers of German, English and other American hops, all from growing regions near the "hop belt" of the 48th Latitude. Cheers!

Pours a clear burnt orange with a descent looking head. Smells really of nothing, maybe bready, maybe earthy. Taste is not too bad. Itís not too watered down yet it is not standout bold. Palate is medium bodied, earthy up front and finishes with a subtle bitter end. Overall If this was labeled as a pale I would be raving about this beer. Again not too bad but lacks that IPA punch.

Dark gold pour, white head. Aroma is hop bitterness and citrus. Taste is pineapple, orange, and grapefruit. Very smooth mild bitterness. Floral aftertaste, some malt too. Nice single hop ipa.

Poured from 12oz bottle, pours a clear dark amber with a thick off white head, aroma is pretty dank with some tropical fruit, the flavor has a decent hop front end with a bitter finish, smooth, not bad at all

jflopsu (531) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Pours a dark rust orange with thick white head. Has a faint citrus hop aroma. Taste is almost like sour citrus with hops, malts and grains. A very dry malty and bitter hop aftertaste

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 Iíve 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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

OldGrowth (2649) - North Carolina, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Pint at World of Beer Raleigh. Good aroma sweet. Fruity. Peach and Citrus. Clean brownish orange color. OK head and lace. Bittersweet flavor. Medium body. Smooth creamy mouthfeel. Bitter sweet finish.nice. aroma best part for me. Nice fruit notes. Flavour less interesting. Fine ipa.

MacBoost (1260) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - AUG 14, 2014
Pours a clear amber color with a small off white head. Aromas of citrus fruit and dirt. Taste is bitter and semi sweet. Flavors of some unripened citrus fruit, caramel, cardboard, soap. This is nowhere near other all-mosaic hopped beers Iíve had. In fact, this whole "deconstructed" series is pretty much garbage. Scroll past this dumpster juice.

From a bottle looks thick. Smells like IPA of course, but with volatile hydrocarbons. First taste is big rude happy bullshit. Viscous, mouth coating bitter pine tar nasty rude Nellie. There you have it.
