2.78/5  rDev -23%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

My first of the Deconstructed series, chosen completely at random by a blind grab into the box. Poured into a pint, I got a one finger head floating on a clear amber body. The head subsided, but still had a substantial film that lasted throughout the glass.

Aroma was initially of some pine-like hops, but I was surprised at the strong grainy presence. I usually get that with lagers, so in an IPA it seemed out of place. Then some biscuit character came out, along with some mild bitterness and a slightly sweet honey note.

Taste... what the hell? I got some sticky sweet, cloying malt that coated my tongue, then some bitter and astringent character cut through, followed by a little spiciness and some odd metallic taste. I finished the glass with larger swallows, and that cut down on the stickiness, but it was still off.

Mouthfeel was wierd. I didn't like it. It left a film on my tongue and teeth.

Overall, I guess I am glad I started with this one. I can only see the prospect of the other ones being better than this one, because it would be hard to top this.
