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.

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.

From a bottle dated 6/16/14 poured into a lager glass.

Clear golden hue with a small white head. Head died to an even layer that lingered and left long lasting lace.

Smell of hops is strong in this one. Sweet grain like corn, somewhat skunky, pine and citrus from the hops.

Flavor is full on hops. Bitter, but with a sweet layer that blends well. Refreshing.

Mouthfeel is medium body, effervescent, smooth. Very drinkable.

Apparently I like Mosaic hops. The smell is a little different, but I like the flavor. That said the beer is a little one dimensional, but delicious. I would drink more but it's hard to find in my area.
