Had this side by side with Alpine's Nelson, and this one edged out, though they were pretty different overall.

Cloudy yellow-orange pour, with a fluffy cap of white head, which dissipated to a wispy layer, lacing the glass just a bit. Aroma of light leafy hops, notes of citus zest and crackery malts. Taste was crisp with fresh hops--not intensely hoppy, kind of reminded me of Zombie Dust a little--grassy, leafy, lemon and orange zest, not too bitter, with a sweet rock candy malt base. Body was light-medium, mouthfeel was crisp and clean. Enjoyable.

Tried at the Mother Earth tasting room in Vista.

A: Nice golden straw color with visible white head, that was light and disappeared after a short time. Nice lacing and clarity.

S: Grapefruit, citrus, earth tones underneath with malt on the back.

T: Superb, very balanced with hops and malts interacting nicely. Hop forward with a little bitterness that is countered with the malty sweetness. One of the more balanced IPA's available at M.E.

M: Dry, crisp, but refreshing. Even and smooth character with an even body that lends to the hop bite.

O:A great example of an IPA, would be glad to drink again.

A: Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a bone white head. Some nice lace streaks down the glass.

S: Kind of a musty attic hop smell, if that makes sense. There are some tropical and citrus hop notes here, mainly passion fruit, pineapple and kiwi, but there's the musty malt blanket covering it.

T: Has some light grapefruit, tangerine and light floral hops. There's a pretty deep earthy malt backbone, with some spicy rye- like notes. Finish has some pine hop resin. It's alright. So far, I just don't know if Mosaic hops are for me.

Pours a clear yellow amber in the Duvel tulip. Great aroma of piney, flowery hops. Sharp and spritzy mouthfeel.

Pleasantly malty with some nice tangy notes. Warm flavors but thin body. Moderately bitter for the aftertaste, but unmistakably an IPA. On the acidic side, which is no surprise, but it does overwhelm the crackery malt after a few sips.

Reviewer notchucknorris is correct in tasting Mosaic hops, which the brewery says are the only hop here and rate this at 65 IBUs. This is really a pretty good IPA that threads the way between the rocks of Big Hop Flavor and Too Much Bitterness to a successful ending. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Beverage Warehouse near Marina Del Rey.
