Pours an apricot-orange with pure white foamy head.
Smells chalky with fresh mashed tropical fruits and orange sherbet with a hint of vanilla.
Taste follows the nose, citrusy hop forward, dry, chalky, grapefruit crush and a hop bitter finish.
Medium body ale with a light fleeting foam feel.
Overall a bit sharp on the grapefruit that kind of thins it out.

This poured with a brilliant pineapple yellow color with a thick head of densely knit, bright white foam.
The nose has a malty background but the Mosaic hops are very evident. The aroma has some honey, oranges and pineapple before turning earthy and grassy.
The flavor is sweet and sugary, like a citrus fructose, with the evident Mosaic hop character punching through. The hop finish is grassy, earthy, not overly bitter, with a spicy character.
The feel is so light, airy and smooth but it still has a good amount of heft.
Very well crafted IPA with some different aromas and tastes then the standard fare.

Thanks to RichOBrien for having the chance to drink this beer.
-Pours a really nice golden color with about a finger head. Nice looking beer.
-Smells nice. Citrus and piney scent. There is definitively a strong lime scent.
-Piney bitterness with Grapefruit and Lime taking the backseat
-Spectacular creamy bitterness with the citrus lingering in my mouth.
-Overall it's a pretty good hoppy beer from the Alchemist. I did had high hopes for this brew, but it was still a treat.
