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!

Christian (11119) - Odense, - JAN 30, 2013
Amber with a lasting off-white head. The aroma has lots of citrus and peach hops, along with caramel and bread crust, and grassy and wooden undertones. Sweetish fruity and malty flavour with a lingering bitterness

Leighton (11028) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2014
Bottle at home in CT - picked up at Stateline, pours clear copper with a creamy, off-white head. The nose has ripe melon, orange, some pine. Medium sweet flavor with crackers, lightly toasted malts, some dry caramel, ripe orange, citrus rind, light leafy and piney bitterness. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Finishes with sweet, bready malts, a bit more caramelisation of the malts, mild pine bitterness, some earth, alcohol, orange rind, grass. Not bad but perhaps a little faded.

Bottle:   Soft sweet citrus pith and peel, a touch of sweet tobacco.   Moderately sweet, make that fairly sweet.   Low bitterness.   Soft pith and peel linger.   Very light bitterness.   Smooth and easy drinking.

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.

williamherbert (1290) - Syracuse, New York, USA - SEP 3, 2014
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? Itís 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. Itís a very solid pale ale; this might have been an above-the-line IPA about 8 years ago, and just because itís at-the-line now doesnít mean itís a lesser beer.

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.

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.
