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

S- Floral hop notes with hints of citrus, mostly lemon zest and grapefruit.

T- Hints of lemon that build to a bitter grapefruit note. Grapefruit dominates the caramel malt until the finish when the malt finally shines through. The finish is dry and mostly clean with a final note of the grapefruit bitterness.

M- Medium in body and well carbonated. Clean on the palate, about halfway through the glass the hop oil does start to build up.

O- The most well known of the hops to me in this deconstructed IPA so far. As easy hop to note in other beer and a memorable flavor for me. The 6% ABV is hidden and not over the top for the style. Interesting experiment from Boston Beer to deconstruct an IPA into it's hop components and let us taste them separately and then together over these six beers. Mikkeller does something similar with their single hop series and I applaud the fact that Boston Beer has taken it a step further.
