UPDATED: MAY 3, 2015 About as good as it gets from a bottle. Pleasant aroma. Beautiful reddish brown color. Full, hoppy flavor, without being overly astringent. Mildly sweet. Slightly lingering finish. Rich mouthfeel. Tastes richer and stronger than average beer, without being overly hoppy or having gratuitously high ABV.
pours a nice amber with a two finger head and has a nice citrus and herbal aroma and flavor. oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 24, 2016
Pours a golden amber color with big fluffy head. Aromas of citrus, fruit, grass, and the best tropics. Flavors of tropical fruits and hops. Mjp12 (1797) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2015
Rather bland tasting ups, tastes more like a pale ale, with only slight hop influence. BeerdedDave (1662) - Beckley, USA - DEC 29, 2014
clear amber color; light, citrusy, fruity aroma with notes of pineapple and grapefruit; bitter, citrusy hop flavor with strong pineapple notes and grapefruit; dry, citrus finish degbert (1772) - 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.

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.

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. shrubber85 (11322) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - NOV 2, 2014
