clear amber color with a thin off white head that leave some lacing. aroma is citrus and pine. Flavor is citrus, pine, and sweet malts. backdaft (286) - Menasha Red Light District, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 30, 2014
Bottle, from Deconstructed 12 pack. Pours a deep clear copper color with a thin off white head. Good sheets of lacing. Aromas of tropical fruits and pine. Taste is some serious grapefruit bitterness. There’s the sweet malt that’s in this series, but it is really no match for the Simcoe hop punch. Medium body with an intense bitterness and dry finish. My fave of the pack. 86Moose (62) - - JUL 28, 2014
Arguably the best of the Samuel Adams Deconstructed series. Deep hops. Sweet with a slight bitter after taste. This entry holds its own against the best IPAs. cfrancis (3453) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 28, 2014
Pours light copper with a small white wisp. Aroma is pine and grapefruit hops with the same caramel sweetness from the malt. Taste is the best finish of the single hop beers with grapefruit and pine hops. Fun series. lawman834 (268) - Texas, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Slightly hazy copper color with a thin pale head. Plenty of lacing. This one is all grapefruit. Very faint pine on the finish. Moderately hoppy, but no malt to be found. A bit one sided for my taste.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2014 Latitude 48 IPA mixed case, second bottle-- Pours a orange color with a small, white color head. Aroma is of soft citrusy fruit. The taste is tropical fruit and bold citrus with a bitter finish and a decent lip smack. Total wine. adamhorror (84) - USA - JUL 22, 2014
Pours deep copper with a small white head. Aroma is pine, grapefruit, lemon. Taste is grapefruit, lemon, sweet and green apple. Palate is resin and bitter. My favorite of this series.

Really grapefruity with powerful bitterness. Mid notes of pine, medium resin. Some thinness to the hop profile, probably because it’s single hop. Not getting cattiness unless I try to convince myself of it. Caramel malt balances nicely in east coast style, but not as sweet as DFH. Great aroma. Clear golden orange appearance typical of the series with nice white head and lace. degbert (1773) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 8, 2014
Bottle. Pours a dark gold-amber with orange highlights. High, lacy, large-grained head. Nose is big, with resinous and lime/grapefruit notes. Aggressive hops presence on the front of the tongue, but remains balanced throughout the mouth; butterscotch malt keeps the lime and rosemary notes in check. Good, basic IPA with a long, dry finish. keith0718 (434) - Kansas, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Bottle. This is a solid IPA. It is very well balanced. It has a nice hop flavor.
