Bottle, from Deconstructed 12 pack. Deep, clear copper with an off white head. Good lacing. Aroma is sweet malt and earthy, grassy hops. Taste is similar; sweet malt, grassy hops, & some lemon zest. Medium body with a hint of lingering bitterness.

A good entry in the Samuel Adams Deconstructed Series. A very bitter IPA. Not hoppy like traditional UPAs. A distinct & unique beer.

Pours copper with a small white frothy top. Aroma is earthy pine hop presence. Taste is pine and a touch of lemon hop with some light caramel sweetness coming from the malt.

Bottle from Latitude 48 deconstructed case--ok, I’m starting to dig this. The Hallertau isn’t so much of an IPA, again and I can swear that this had the flavor of a German type lager. It was a clear copper color with a medium-large, white head. Aroma of dry grass and caramel, the taste was slightly sweet and bready. Not much bitterness on the end. Total Wine.

lawman834 (268) - Texas, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Clear copper with a moderate pale head. Plenty of lacing. Very balanced. Carmel malt and a dry hop bite that isn’t overpowering. There’s almost a spiciness to it. That in conjunction with the malt profile gives it more of a Marzen character than that of your typical IPA, which is perfectly fine by me.

3.2
hopbag (159) - - JUL 14, 2014
Floral notes. Gentle citrus and pine. Bitterness is gentle while still giving some IPA bite. Not a ton of hop flavor, but it’s a pleasant beer. Hallertau would go well in a simple malty beer with high levels of late hopping or a dry hop. A little bit of spice and some darker notes but mostly just pleasant. Not really an IPA.

degbert (1773) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle. Same dark orange-amber and high, large-grained, lacy head as the rest in the series. Nose seems muted; it’s bread, orange, a touch of metallic, and what I can only call dusty nutmeg. There’s a bitterness on the tongue like weak black tea with lemon, followed by more muted spice notes, orange, and bready elements. Finish is long and whisper-thin; puts me in mind of instant iced tea powder. I don’t think this hop is strong enough on its own; in the end, it’s like beery Nestea.

NikkTwist (3223) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 8, 2014
Draft at Moriartys. Clear deep gold pour. Fizzy/foamy white head mostly disappeared. Citrus, resin hops. Medium-light caramel malts.

keith0718 (434) - Kansas, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Bottle. This is a solid IPA. It is very well balanced. It has a nice hop flavor.

2.9
williamstome (1875) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 3, 2014
Gold pour, big white head. Light aroma of citrus, lemon, toffee, bread. Flavor is pretty minimal. Pine, flowers... whyyyyy
