Brewed with our friends at Half Acre, Anicca IPA is single hopped snake juice showcasing the Mosaic hop, a plant throwing off a cornucopia of fruit flavors. Bitter sweet and full of force, this IPA bends your brain into a tropical storm of writhing glory.

Available in 22oz bottles. This is the version brewed at 3 Floyds in August 2013.

Awesome bottle art and I had never heard of this 3F's offering so I had to try it.

A - Deep orange and hazy from dry hopping. Course white head coming forth from a subtle pour. Good lacing.

S - Very wet hop in the nose. Tons of tropical fruits, some citrus, light herbal and maybe some floral. Nothing other than hops present in the smell

T - Has the tropical hops but right in the middle and on the way back raw onion flavor. Mosaic hops tend to have an onion flavor during late additions and this beer is no exception. The pungent tropical fruit, pineapple, and citrus do help combat the onion and after a few sips the fruits prevail. No lack of hop flavor and there may be a light malt flavor. The bitterness is very mild and obscured by the overall hoppiness.

M - Lighter mouth-feel with mild carbonation. Pretty clean and crisp on the finish more like an APA than a typical bitter IPA.

Overall, a good tropical fruit representation of an IPA. That initial burst of onion is enough to make me not love this beer but the pineapple, and mango are amazing after that first taste. This beer is similar to "Go-To IPA" from Stone but with a little more in every aspect (flavor, body, ABV). Though Mosaics are not going to surpass my love for Amarillos or Simcoes I did like this beer. I would recommend this if you have never tried Mosaic hops before or if the label art is too enthralling.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep orange, almost amber. Murky. Small white head.

Smell - Grapefruit. Toasty malt. Some caramel malt. Smells a little sweet.

Taste - Grapefruit hops again, but not as strong. Toasty and bready malts. Bitterness builds. Grassy, toasty, and a just a hint of sweetness.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Medium carbonation.

Overall - I expected better from these two breweries, but it's good.

22oz bottled (dated 12/22/14) poured into a tall-stemmed tulip

Initially nervous about this one, as an aggressive pour produced a beer the color of deep iced tea, a hue I associate more with barleywines than DIPAs, and with a very large beige/tan head, one that leaves spotty rings of lace. Notes of tropical fruit, citrus, slightly sweet grains dominate the nose, whereas the flavor is primarily crisp pine and tea leaves. A creamy smooth mouthfeel rounds the beer out and delivers an enjoyable, moderately lengthy finish. I realize that by the time I got to try this it was a bit past 2 months old, but it was still decent, just not outstanding.
