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!

nearbeer (3848) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 16, 2013
12 oz, bb May 2013. Clear copper with a half inch of spongy cream on top. Aromas of spicy green herb, earthy toffee, light citrus. Taste is dank herb, grapefruit, creamy caramel apple, white pepper. Has some wood and evergreen resin on the long dry finish. Light-medium body is dry and has a bit much carbonation but is an incredibly easy drinker.

degbert (1201) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 1, 2014
Bottle. Pours a dark gold-amber with orange highlights. High, lacy, large-grained head. Nose is clean and sharp, with rose, pine, rosemary, geranium, and spruce notes. Bright and citrusy on the tongue, with some lime and grapefruit on the finish; a little mellow savory lactic edge keeps it balanced. The best of the Deconstructed Lat 48 IPAs. I’d drink this on its own.

mansquito (3581) - Nueva York, New York, USA - NOV 20, 2014
The Sampler, Brooklyn tap: Pours orange with a white head. Aroma is citrus, orange, grapefruit. Taste balances well with the malty backbone. Not very bitter. Rather fruity, but not in that full-bodied aggressive way like so many West Coast IPAs.

joeyplush (648) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 19, 2014
Bottle at world of beer Easton OH. A little bit like a lager meeting an ipa. Has the trademark Sam Adams clear hue and creamy head. Taste has acidic fruit, definitely mandarin orange as advertised. Balanced out by dark malt hops. I like the experimentation on Sam Adams part - and not surprisingly it's well executed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Strangebrewer (902) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 13, 2014
bottle. Poured clear deep amber with a thin creamy tan head. Aroma is a bold mix of citrus and herbs. Light-medium body, creamy mouthfeel with a tart bite at the end. Sweet orange citrus with more sweet bready malt, finishes with some pine resin.

Bottle: Pours clear, copper, small off-white head. Orange, mushroom, earthy hop aroma. Taste is caramel and orange malts... Leafy, earthy, mildly soiced hops. Very tasty, a pleasure to drink. Nice balance and body.

GenDV138 (1835) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - OCT 20, 2014

Cornfield (5552) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - OCT 20, 2014
I see that this is No. 2 in the series. Drat. I can never do anything in the proper sequence. Anywhat - This has the same light caramel body, but the head is much more slender than the others. The aroma is tart oranges and tangerines with a whisp of grainy sweetness. The flavor is fairly sweet with citrus tastes and some maltose. The bitterness level is pretty light, although it’s retained into the dry, citrusy finish. Not bad, but I prefer more of a bite in an IPA.

hopdog (9189) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 13, 2014
On tap at the Blue Dog in Chalfont. Poured a golden color with an off white head. Citrus, floral/pine with a lighter caramel.
