Looks exactly the same as all the others in the series so far.
Now here is a smell I can enjoy: Black pepper dusted on top of lemon and orange citrus, its very strong and masculine in feel. In fact, I think I feel my chest hair growing with every sip I take! :)
The grassy notes that others describe come across more in the flavor than in the nose for me. Underneath all of the hop flavor lies the same standard caramel malt and texture as all the other ones in the series so far, but this...this one I like a lot better than the others.

This IPA poured out as a dark golden color, almost like a burnt orange. Couldn't really see through the glass either once the beer was in it. The head was about one finger in thickness and lasted for the majority of the time I was drinking it. The lacing was light but did show itself nicely on the glass. The smell of the beer was more mild than I expected it to be. The malts and hops worked well together here. The taste of the beer was nice and hoppy, the flavors of lemon zest came to mind along with some pine notes. The aftertaste was mostly malty and dry. The mouthfeel was medium bodied and tingles the tongue with each sip. Overall I thought this was a very enjoyable IPA. I'd consider drinking this one again one day if I come across it.

12 oz bottle from the mixed pack.

Appearance: Light amber color, very clear. Again, great off white head and lacing.

Smell: Surprisingly citrusy and slightly grassy/earthy hops. The same great sweet and caramelly malt bill of course.

Taste: I like this one a lot. Bitter citrus pith and a nice wet earthiness. Great balancing maltiness.

Mouthfeel: Feels creamy, smooth, and resiny on the finish.

Drinkability: Quite good. I think this hops variety is the reason I enjoy Latitude 48.

Poured chilled in flared glass

A: clear copper orange; moderate head; decent carb action; very nice lacing
S: lighter smell than the other deconstructed beers; light, malty, carmelly
T: woah, very different tasting than the rest of the deconstructeds; orange, floral flavor dominates; mildly bitter; this puts a really nice curvature to the hops profile in the full 48 IPA

Excellent

A nice amber in color with a foamy light brown head that reduces to a quarter-inch in my Samuel Adams glass.

Light aroma of metallic hops with a hint of biscuit.

Nice taste: Bitter but balanced with malt notes. I can taste the lemon-like flavors SA mentions on the label. Even though I love extreme hoppy, bitter beers, I think this is one of the best in the Deconstructed pack.

This is a very balanced IPA and one of the most approachable of the pack. Seek it out.

This variety pack is a must-try for hopheads. Kudos to Samuel Adams for selling something as cool as this.
