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.

A - Dark copper with a clear and slightly reflective body with a small white head

S - Passion fruit, hibiscus, rather floral and tropical. Really fragrant.

T - Up front is floral hibiscus hops, then it moves to mango, passion fruit and strawberry to give it a good fruity presence. Finish is slightly piney to give it a bitter finish. A great balance of hop flavors in this one

M - Medium body with a thick and sticky resin. Get a hop resin on the tongue that lingers on in the finish.

O - A really good hoppy beer that you'd expect from these two with a good balance of fruit and bitter hop flavors. (607 characters)

Poured from 22 oz bomber into Tulip glass.

Appearance doesn't really matter to me. I'm all about the taste and smell. I shared this bottle with a bunch of craft beer buddies and we all really enjoyed it. One of my friends-- who at first said "Oh, no thanks. I don't really like IPAs very much."-- said "Oh wow, the taste on that is really complex. I think my palate must be changing because that's really good!"

Smell: I picked up a lot of pine and "dankness". My friends were able to pick up on more fruit notes. I really love fruity and floral smelling IPAs, so I would have liked to have picked up on those scents more. Maybe my nose is defective.

Taste: When it first clashes against your tongue it is sweet and fruity. If I were to assign the taste to one fruit, it would definitely be passionfruit. After this initial rush of flavor, it transforms to a pine-like taste which leads to a nice hoppy bitterness.

Mouthfeel: at just over 7%, it's right where I'd like it to be for an IPA. Crisp AND satisfying.

Overall: I'm glad I picked up two of these when I stopped by the brewery. Actually, I hope I can get some more before they're gone. It's definitely has a memorable taste. Highly recommended. (1,207 characters)

This collaboration is excellent. ...ahow casing the mosaic hop! The beer pours a clear copper with thin white head that is leaving a nice lace. The scent carries an orange peel citrus and subtle pine. The taste is bitter through the drink with a orange peel spicy essance that includes a piney resin. The mouthfeel is medium to light in body with good carbonation. Overall this is a great beer. (394 characters)

22-oz bomber shared on 8/24/2013, to a 13.75-oz tulip.

amber orange appearance, with large off-white head lingering for a long time. lots of carbonation, w/ good patchwork lacing.

lovely bouquet of caramel malts and juicy, fruity, earthy hops. lemon w/ dank

well-balanced. malt sweetness w/ mango, grapefruit, resin. the hop bitterness does not assault the tongue like other FFF offerings, making for a delicious tasting.

well-carbonated, sticky sweet mouthfeel, the lingering bitterness tickles the tongue.

this is a really good IPA/DIPA, and i'm not a huge hophead. well-crafted, better than dreadnaught and zombie dust, even though the three are different styles, technically.

this is similar to Pliny the Elder, in my opinion. i could've handled the whole bomber by myself with no problem or remorse (809 characters)
