4.03/5 rDev +10.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
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 3 finger foamy light tan head. Excellent head retention and perfect lacing which leaves rings of spiderwebs on on the glass.
Smell: Pine is dominant with a little sweet caramel malt creeping through in the background.
Taste: Resinous pine dominates up front - and throughout for that matter - followed by a touch of malty sweetness in the middle before ending with bitter hops at the finish. Aftertaste is bitter and longlasting.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with a fairly high amount of carbonation.
Drinkability: High drinkability. You could knock back a few of these with no problem.
Overall: Good beer overall. It's probably the most bitter of the Deconstructed bunch. It's definitely worth a try.
Serving type: bottle
