Clear yellow gold pour with a small and airy white head. Beautiful flowery aroma. Taste follows the nose with a really great hop flavor that is on the floral end but also has a nice pine and grapefruit presence. Finishes dry with a lingering grassy flavor.

Pretty good IPA. The Mosaic hops provide an array of flavor experiences, though none of them are that intense. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a hint of orange. Big white head with good retention and several bands of lacing on the pint glass.

Aroma is citrus and tropical fruit. Taste is more of the same, mangos, tangerines, lemon zest but there is also a vegetal quality that others picked up as well. When I first noticed it, I thought there was some Summit hops going on here. Thankfully, it was just a transitory flavor. Summit hops ruin a beer for me. I would like stronger flavor and more intense bitterness, but the variety of flavors were enjoyable.

Mouthfeel is a bit light but still somewhat crisp and refreshing. THe bitterness could be stronger but overall a very pleasant sensation.

I would drink this one again.
