2.93/5  rDev -25.6%

On tap at the brewery in Grand Rapids. 6.5% ABV

An aggressive and highly hopped ale. Light golden in color with an unimpressive head and minimal lacing. The aroma reeks of hops, perhaps some fresh hops at that. Tropical fruit mixes with earthy pine. This mix is stronger and less pleasant in tasting, but with a clear impression of somewhat skunky weed.

O: A disappointing offering but likely only because I didn’t care for the specific hop (Mosaic) used.

4.1/5  rDev +4.1%

This is a single hope IPA, using Mosaic hops. Had on draft at the brewery. Served (in my case) in an 11oz glass.

A: pale yellow/orange hue. Crisp and clear. Minimal head, and with little lacing.

S: wonderful aroma with huge citrus mixed with a small quantity of pine notes. Slight grapefruit. Fantastic.

T: huge orange with grapefruit bite. Crisp. Extremely small amount of pine, much as the aroma anticipated, but still sweet. Not overly bitter, very well balanced.

M: crisp and refreshing. Coats the the tongue as the aftertaste expands. Certainly geared towards the center of your taste buds, but fades within 10seconds to the sides as the malt takes hold.

O: this would be a fantastic beer to snag a growler of and sit on the deck during a hot day. This is very refreshing and pleasurable.

3.76/5  rDev -4.6%

Appearance: bold golden color with accents of orange and pink. Light head with low carbonation active while drinking. A simple but pretty looking single IPA.

Smell: hmm a unique sour grapefruit and pine aroma. Overall it is subdued, have to dig a little bit to pull it out. Orange and tangerine tones can also be found.

Taste: pretty consistent with the aroma. Sweet and sour grapefruit and leafy greens hit the palate right away. Solid medium bitter body. Finish is tropical fruits and some malt sweetness.

Mouth feel: easy on the palate, not too overpowering.

Overall: a unique single IPA. Enjoyed the mosaic hop profile.
