4.39/5  rDev -2.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

The beer pours a hazy yellow with touches of gold and a nice fluffy white, two-fingers- width head that stick around and leaves a sticky fat lacing on the glass. The beer’s body is an opaque haze and appears to be free of carbonation bubbles. On the nose, the beer smells pungently of sweet and juicy tropical fruit. Mango, pineapple, touches of grapefruit, tangerine, and even touches of nectarine run across the nose and are backed up with a strong shivering pine resin and a slight caramelly bread malt. On the tongue, the beer tastes sweet and then nicely bitter with a wonderful round feeling that doesn’t wrack the mouth, but does give it a proper tingle. There is also a slight pucker from acidity in this beer. The flavors begin as light and then grow, sweet tropical fruit juice flavors work from pineapple juice into orange and grapefruit flavors and then explode with bitter sticky pine in the mouth. Juicy fruit flavors also run across the palate during the sip. The finish is bitter and a touch medicinal, but thirst quenching and tasty, and the aftertaste shows the light bready malt background of the beer. In the mouth the beer feels medium light in body, and fluffy soft from the carbonation with only a touch of a prickle on the sides of the tongue. This beer also gives a proper thirst quenching snap to the mouth, which is lovely. The mouth is left dry on top and wet on the sides from the slight acidity. Overall, this is a lovely tropical fruit DIPA and a nice introduction to the mosaic hop for me. That this is a single hop beer really shows both the skill of the brewer and the wonder of this new hop variety. This beer is excellent, and you should try it.
