3.58/5  rDev +0.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a dark orange-amber color with a 1" head of light tan. Decent retention. Drops to a clumpy, thick film with some pretty good lacing.
Smell is not all hops, there is balance. Hops is present, of course, though there is malt along with a green grape and caramel notes. Biggest problem here is the scent is weak, well balanced but hard to pick up.
Taste is hops first with lighter malt, citrus, evergreen and some woodiness. Decently balanced but not as well as the nose. A fairly complex IPA, though.
Mostly full-bodied, warming with a somewhat restrained carbonation, for the style at least. A drinkable beer that tries to let you know not to drink too fast. Only 6% ABV but feels like 8% in many ways. Better than the other way 'round.

4.11/5  rDev +15.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a DFH IPA glass. The culmination of the entire deconstruction series.

A: Golden clear, with a fine white head and gentle effervescence.

S: Herbal and citrusy. Quite pleasant and aromatic. Herbaceaousness takes the day.

T: Maybe it's the priming of the previous five (half) beers, but this is exceptionally complex and definitely delicious. Almost perfectly balanced between hoppy and fruity; sweet and bitter. Fruit takes the day on the endtaste. Aftertaste is clean and pleasant.

M: Rich and pleasant.

O: Great IPA. Highly recommended. Would drink again.
