Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a New Belgium globe. Best before September 2011 notched on label.
Appearance: Pours a clear dark amber color with orange highlights and a 1-2 finger foamy light tan head. Excellent head retention and perfect lacing which leaves rings of spiderwebs on on the glass.
Smell: Nice even mix of pine and citrus with sweet malt and dried fruits in the background. There's also a floral touch thrown in there as well. My favorite aroma of the whole Deconstructed pack.
Taste: Malty sweetness up front followed by sweet citrus in the middle before ending with bitter lemon peel at the finish. Aftertaste is fairly bitter.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with a fairly high amount of carbonation. Very smooth.
Drinkability: High drinkability. You could knock back a few of these with no problem. Goes down very easy.
Overall: Good beer overall. The flavor is a huge contrast to the Deconstructed Zeus I just had. That one was very bitter and this one is pretty sweet. I like it and am still amazed at the way a single hop changes a beer completely. I'd recommend giving this one a shot.
