Hoppy, but not too much. Which is fine because it lets the citrus and fruit shine. Ends a tad bitter for my druthers, but this is still a good brew.

(a bottle from this past release, chilled the entire time - poured into a tulip pint)

L: fairly light-colored liquid, a pale golden, bread crust brown with yellow edges... thumb-width of pillowy foam on the pour, falls down to mucky, big, soapy-looking bubbles... good amount of sediment floating about... holds foam till the end

S: like a generic West Coast hoppy ale - floral notes, grapefruit and hints of lemon... perhaps signs of age with a yeasted muffin aroma coming up hard from the depths

T: mild-moderate grassy/green-oniony bitterness rides through on the yeast... lightly-toasted, toasty cookie-like, mildly cookie-doughy malt in full, while the decaying ghosts of blueberry and grapefruit hop flavors

F: certainly medium-full bodied with a delicate gummy-chewy texture, even in the residual film left on the palate... but it all seems to stay up front... mellow, lazy carbonation... not exactly crisp but moderately dry

O: you can tell what's going on with this beer (when fresh), though the hop noise has simmered down... this might be more interesting with hop varieties with more personality... with as much hype as Mosaic has gotten, why choose to kinda bury it in a malty, yeasty wheat beer?
