I had this in a pint glass many times.
Today, once again I had it in a pint glass.
The appearance was a hazy golden burnt orange color with a one and a half finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving some nice speckled spider web lacing sticking and then sliding into the beer.
The smell had a sharp bittersweet citrus arranging itself into a nice crisp light piney - ness.
The taste offered a crisp bittersweet citrus and sharp pine and then as it warmed there was a decent caramel malt that combined nicely.
The mouthfeel was slightly harsh but good for the style and for me as it carried a nice crisp rolling outlay of delicious citrus over my palate.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good AIPA that makes a great budget beer.

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.
