Growler filled 3-5, consumed on 3-6. Nice bubbly one finger head sits ontop a murky orange glow. It's a great color, with wonderful lacing on the glass, as well. The aroma is so juicy and tropical. Pineapple is the major one I'm getting, with citrus and maybe some passion fruit. It's so great. The smell is a little sweet, can't detect any bitterness yet. It Tastes just like I would expect. Sweetness upfront with some pineapple juice qualities. There are other flavors in there that don't let the pineapple sweetness overwhelm. Almost no bitterness. S&S 5 was great when I had it last time, couldn't imagine this would be better. So bummed I only have one growler. The mouthfeel is creamy and the sweetness lingers for a while, it's very smooth. The alcohol is barely there. The only reason It doesn't get a 5 for mouthfeel is because it's not heady topper quality mouthfeel, which is a 5. HT is so resinous. If you like super juicy DIPA's I can't recommend this enough.

On tap many places during last week’s trip to Vermont, but the first glass was on tap at the source. Nose releases a beautiful bouquet of orange peel, faint tropical notes, and a bit of pine. Mosaic is apparently a winner. Flavor is quite fruity yet also very bitter. Mouthfeel is near perfection, as is almost always the case with HF hoppy offerings. Supremely drinkable. One of my favorite HF IPAs yet.
