From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with an expiration date of October 2014. Sampled on September 20, 2014.

Lovely looking copper pour with a big off-white head just like the others in the set.

Aroma of roasted malts with an earthy and semi-bold hop character. Not in my face but noticeable.

Medium to full body.

The taste is a nice mixture of roasted malts and bitter hops that are not to floral or grassy. They balance out right.

S: hops are up front with caramel malt in the background;

T: balanced up front with the hops building to a lightly bitter finish;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation:

O: more hop presence than I expected;

It's crazy how much this tastes like a belgian IPA. I don't know if Samuel Adams used the same malt base for the Deconstructed series but it would make sense in my mind.
Either way, this tastes Belgian. That crisp bitterness on top of a bready malt biscuitness. Some orange zest in there and some...pine. I'm ok.
