P: 12oz bottle into a perfect pint glass.

A: Golden amber with a two finger light tan head.

S: Grapefruit and pine, distinctively Simcoe hops. Slight malty sweetness and maybe even a bit of bubblegum. My initial impressions based on aroma are that this is going to be much more of an IPA than the East Kent Goldings or Hallertau Mittelfreuh versions of this beer. Caramel aromas begin to build in the glass as the beer warms.

T: Lots of grapefruit like citrus rind, followed closely by malt sweetness. Bitterness is solid for an IPA and dry. I get another hint of that bubblegum flavor in the finish, just a touch but it's there.

M: Again, as with all of these Deconstructed IPA's, moderate body and carbonation but the more hoppy, more bitter brews don't seem to be as heavy.

O: Much more of an IPA than a few of the others but as with the Mosaic only hopped version, it lack the complexity of the really good IPA's. Still a very good beer that I'd happily drink if it were available. This might be my favorite of the bunch so far, just by a touch over the Mosaic Deconstructed IPA.

12oz bottle, Enjoy before Oct 2014
L - copper colored ale with a creamy beige head that holds good retention
S - grapefruit, fruit, pine, caramel, bread
T - bold malt backbone with bready, caramely sweetness, fruity grapefruit is a little pungent with some pine in there
F - medium, resinous, finishes dry with lingering grapefruit pith and pine
O - I like the Simcoe hops and the pungency it provides; not bad for what it is, but I liked the Mosaic more.
