Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Shaker pint glass, "best by" date October 2014.

APPEARANCE: pours a clear amber color with one finger off-white head that slowly dissipated until a thin layer of bubbles remained, significant lacing on the glass and slightly higher than average carbonation.

SMELL: sweet caramel, bread a little pepper and some pine.

TASTE: this is not the hoppiest of IPA's, more balanced toward the malt end of the spectrum than most of this style, initially sweet caramel then a mild piney hop profile, it reminded me of an English ale more than an American IPA.

PALATE: medium body and carbonation.

OVERALL: this was a good beer but nothing special. I bought the deconstructed IPA 12 pack and liked the Simcoe, Mosaic and Hallertau Mittelfrueh single hop versions better. I salute Samuel Adams for coming up with the idea to do this. It was fun and educational. I learned something about my own hop preferences.

Poured into a new belgium chalice: color is dark copper, head is big, at least 1 inch thick and tan in color with a reddish hue.

Aroma is very pleasant: malt forward, flavors are toast, light biscuit and a solid caramel; hops are piney, earthy, bitter. lighter grapefruit.

Taste is also pleasant and malt forward: similar to the aroma the flavors are toast, biscuit, and caramel; hops are even more earthy and piney than the aroma presents. Nice flavor, definitely a malty ipa.

Mouthfeel is very good: clean bitterness, nice flavor and lingering presence.

Overall, very malty ipa with a lean towards caramel and bitterness in aroma and flavor.
