Thanks to Chris F. for sharing this one at Wowcoolman's tasting.

Pours a clear golden-orange with a foamy bone head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, citrus zest, earth, and berry aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest, earth, and berry flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty, but there is a better hop presence in the aroma in my opinion.

Serving type: bottle.

Poured into a Sam Adams Boston Lager glass...

A) A big white frothy head that leaves a nice layer of lacing on the glass. Colour is rich gold.

S) This is a ruby grapefruit bomb! Loads of citrus and tropical fruit on the nose. Some faint light maltiness in the background

T) Follows the nose, loads of grapefruit and citrus, hints of pineapple, mango and tropical fruit that cover that light graininess.

M) Dry but with a bit of sweetness upfront that balances out the slightly bitter finish. Well balanced, with a lighter body.

O) A tropical fruit bomb that delivers a boatload of Mosaic hops. It is well balanced, not too bitter, not too sweet with a nice moderate carbonation. A great, summer beer!

A: Seems a little pale for an IPA but has nice foam.

S: Light citrus.

T: Ok, this is where it gets a bit more complex…. Good citrus. Mostly grapefruit and (oranges?). Bitter as you want an IPA to be.

M: Enough carbonation, lingering bitterness. Maybe a little too much bitterness buildup?

O: A little on the bitter side of things but overall a good IPA. I wouldn't session on it but having one at some point mid evening could feel refreshing. So not my favourite, but if you're up for a little change from your favourite IPA, this might be a good alternative.
