P: 12oz bottle into a perfect pint glass.

A: A clear golden amber with a fluffy two finger light tan head.

S: Caramel malt with some floral and citrus notes. A little bit of grass or hay.

T: A huge malt backbone helps to balance the bitterness of the hops but it seems to overpower them a bit. Caramel flavors along with some earthy pine and citrus from the hops.

M: Moderate body and carbonation. The beer really coats your mouth with each sip.

O: This is the final product from the 2014 version of the deconstructed IPA. It's certainly more complex than any of the single hop varieties but it's not as hop forward as say the Mosaic, Simcoe or Zeus beers. It's fairly well balanced but I'd prefer some more hop aroma and flavor for an IPA. At that, it's enjoyable and very drinkable.
