OK warriors, we're co-hosting a beer that's to be delivered from our brew deck to your ceremonial chalice. We've again brewed with our cohorts at Three Floyds Brewing Co and have given birth to the sludge of angels, Anicca India Pale. Anicca IPA is single hopped snake juice showcasing the Mosaic hop, a plant throwing off a cornucopia of fruit flavors. Bitter sweet and full of force, this IPA bends your brain into a tropical storm of writhing glory. As the philosophy explains, Anicca will come and go, so come sip this before all is gone.

Draft and cask only at the Half Acre Tap Room.

10oz pour, served on tap at the Half Acre Tap Room, poured into a Half Acre stemmed flute. Enjoyed fresh on 10.11.14, review from Tasting Journal.

The beer pours a medium amber color, strong hues of reds and oranges, hazy and murky with an off white head, about a finger or so with very nice retention and great lace. The aroma is really piney, dank, earthy, sticky and resinous, quite bitter but with an ample malt backbone. The flavors are in line, sticky pine, dank, earthy, grassy, resinous hoppiness with the same, caramel malt backbone, helps cut the bitterness a bit but the balance is a bit rougher on the tongue. The mouthfeel is nice, sticky is again the best fitting word, full bodied, coats the mouth super well with a dry finish.

Verdict: A very nice DIPA from Half Acre and Three Floyds. The mosaic hop is admittedly one of my least favorite hops, but this was really enjoyable. Piney, bitter, sticky and sappy, the flavor profile is a bit on the heavier and darker side of the spectrum for me, but this hits the spot for a nice hop kick, really nice on tap.

Awesome bottle art and I had never heard of this 3F's offering so I had to try it.

A - Deep orange and hazy from dry hopping. Course white head coming forth from a subtle pour. Good lacing.

S - Very wet hop in the nose. Tons of tropical fruits, some citrus, light herbal and maybe some floral. Nothing other than hops present in the smell

T - Has the tropical hops but right in the middle and on the way back raw onion flavor. Mosaic hops tend to have an onion flavor during late additions and this beer is no exception. The pungent tropical fruit, pineapple, and citrus do help combat the onion and after a few sips the fruits prevail. No lack of hop flavor and there may be a light malt flavor. The bitterness is very mild and obscured by the overall hoppiness.

M - Lighter mouth-feel with mild carbonation. Pretty clean and crisp on the finish more like an APA than a typical bitter IPA.

Overall, a good tropical fruit representation of an IPA. That initial burst of onion is enough to make me not love this beer but the pineapple, and mango are amazing after that first taste. This beer is similar to "Go-To IPA" from Stone but with a little more in every aspect (flavor, body, ABV). Though Mosaics are not going to surpass my love for Amarillos or Simcoes I did like this beer. I would recommend this if you have never tried Mosaic hops before or if the label art is too enthralling.
