An new seasonal release from Phillips featuring Mosaic hops and has a cool funky label.
.
Pours out a light gold colour with a nice white head that stays around with good lacing.

Smell is of tropical fruit and sweet citrus which mosaic hops are known for.

Taste is of tropical fruit, guava,pineapple, citrus and then a nice bitterness in the the finish. Nice balanced malt presence aswell.

Medium carbonation nice mouthfeel.

This a really good smelling and tasting IPA that is refreshing and balanced even with loads of hops. I'm on my second bottle right now.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: Nice and pale, a light copper color with great clarity and super tenacious head. Beautiful looking IPA.

S: Very unique and pungent hoppy nose - Mosaic is a very distinct hop. Lemon zest, blueberries, melon rind, a huge vase of Lily's, basil, tangerine, a bit of coconut?

T: My bottle seems slightly metallic but otherwise just a bouquet of lovely Mosaic hops. Berries are prominent.

M: Medium/light bodied with a quick finish. Not particularly bitter. Very nice IPA from Phillips.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

650ml bottle.

Appearance- Pours an amber with two fingers of bubbly white head.

Smell- tropical fruits (passion fruit, pineapple), mosaic hops, touch of toffee. Nice tropical aromas.

Taste- Nice punch of mosaic hops (tangerine,guava) and hint of toffee.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Overall- This is my second go at an American IPA brewed with Mosaic hops. Phillips did a good job with this one especially with the aromas.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

In hindsight mosiac might be a bit of an undersell...and here's why..

An IPA that looks lagerish in comparsion to the norm...clear, deep amber...did I mention perfectly clear??? lol

Lot's of pine resin, citrus, and hints of fruitiness.

Big old punch of hop up front as one would expect...the twist, which I loved, was in the tropical fruits...mango, papaya, kiwi in a flavour wave that this reviewer was NOT expecting.

An excellent twist on a style that has been there and done that

Phillip's Brewing 'Kaleidoscope IPA' @ 6.5% , originally tasted on tap/cask at HOPoxia , this review from a 650 ml bottle purchased for $6.50

A-pour is a pale clear gold from bottle to glass with a good size white head leaving a streaky lace along the stein

S-mosaic hops famous for citrus , tropical fruit smell

T-smooth and sweet to start followed by a bitterness , almost pleasant tasting , surprisingly balanced IPA

MF-ok/medium carbonation , medium body

Ov-not the biggest nose (floral/citrus) or that sharp bitterness that can kill an IPA for me , there is a certain smoothness to Kaleidoscope that I like

4.04/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

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!

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

650ml bottle poured into tulip 16/7/13

A clear golden liquid with tiny bubbles floating up to a two finger cream colored foam that sits around for a few sips leaving a couple random patches

S nice tropical nose with some passion fruit, pineapple, guava, tangerine, lemon and grapefruit, just a little pine and just a little booze and hard toffee

T earthy notes I can't quite place and more rind compared to the flesh on the nose, still lots of tropical citrus but slightly toned down compared to the nose

M medium bodied, a bitter bite and a little grit left behind, lots of rind and pine on the finish

O I'm liking this one and no Phillips house much to my surprise, a nice tropical IPA that I'll probably drink again considering its reasonable price tag

Not a bad first experience with this new hop, pretty solid IPA from Phillips and it doesn't have that familiar house profile that isn't necessarily a bad thing but a bit of a surprise to me
