*Review taken from notes*

A: Hazy gold with some amber colors. Creamy-bronze head.

S: Subtle hop citrus -- nothing distinct.

T: The bitterness is overwhelming what hoppy flavors are there. Malty. Flavor is almost absent.

M: A slightly heavy body that has a very odd feel, IMO.

O: Bland to tasteless brew. Average at best. Nothing special.

A- Clear amber topped with a thick off white head. Head falls slowly to a cap and leaves some thick lace on the glass.

S- Grapefruit hops, hints of lemon, floral, and pine as well.

T- Citrus notes right away, the hop bitterness is soon balance out with caramel malt backbone. The hops continue to fight for dominance and win out right before the finish. Which is a slightly bitter herbal hop wash that is a lingering final note with a clean dry palate.

M- Medium in body and well carbonated. Clean, dry, and crisp mouthfeel.

O- Was happy I was able to try the deconstructed beers out of this series, it made me appreciate how each hop variety adds to the final product. Not a over the top IPA but a very drinkable one, the 6% ABV is well hidden and it goes down easy. Got to applaud Sam Adams for deconstructing this beer into it's individual hop components so we could appreciate each hop on its' own and then together.
