650ml bottle, poured into a Toppling Goliath Teku. Enjoyed on 3/30/14, reviewed from tasting journal.
The beer pours a hazy, opaque, copper color, hues of orange and apricot with a thick, soapy, white head, about a finger high, moderate retention but leaves a lovely wall of lace behind. The aroma is of resinous pine, bitter grapefruit, pineapple, mango, nice tropical brightness, but strong resinous and sappy qualities with some sweet malt and alcohol burn. The flavors are balanced a bit better, tangy and bitter grapefruit citrus, juicy fresh fruit, pineapples, mangos, passionfruit that does bring out some sweetness. Pine, resin and hop spice, earthy and bitter provide a nice counterbalance to the bright fruit flavors, before sweet, rich malt and light alcohol dominate the finish. The mouthfeel is nice, coats well, a little less lively than expected, the body could use a touch more carbonation, it feels thick, but still quite juicy, with a lightly dry finish.
Verdict: A very nice DIPA from Toppling Goliath, a bit earthier than I prefer, but it showcases the Mosaic hop quite well. Unfortunately, mosaic has proven to be a hop I am relatively indifferent about, but this might be the best example of it. A bit more carb could help this one a bit, but it's still a very, very fine beer.
