Pours a deep gold body that throws up a tall, sticky, off-white head.
Citrus and pine resin aroma.
Bright citrus hop flavor on a nicely bitter palate. Seems "hoppier" than the old L48.

Rather bland tasting ups, tastes more like a pale ale, with only slight hop influence.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
