Pours a medium orangey amber color. Nice and glowy and quite cloudy. The head is medium and sticks to the glass well, though it mostly dropped off pretty quickly and left a very clumpy pattern of bubbles. The aroma is underwhelming. Middle of the road hop flavors - floral, grapefruit and a touch of juniper. Light caramel malt in the background. Taste follows the aroma. It's a bit sweet and doesn't pack enough punch or brightness from the hops. Not very bitter. Just light caramel and pretty standard hop flavors. It's certainly not bad, and it's really not all that sweet. There's just nothing to make it stand out from the enormous pack of American IPAs that are already on the market. Mouthfeel is a touch hop-oily, medium to light. Decent enough beer, and I don't think trying stuff that isn't distributed to my area will ever get old.

Poured from the can into my riegel IPA glass.
January release. Thanks to my buddy Steven Z. for the hook-up!!!

A - Pours a hazy gold, with tinges of orange. a dense 3-finger head forms,
hanging around for a good while, and leaving excellent lacing. A good bit of love obviously went into this beer.

S - Dank pine and citrus aromas abound, showing notes of mango (God bless that Mosaic hop!), stone-fruit, and grapefruit pith. A bit of lemon hangs out as well, with basil, and rosemary in the background. I could smell this beer all day.

T - Follows the nose. Meyer lemon, mango, vegetal bell pepper, and apricot, with a bit of underlying booziness that hugs the palate. Damn, I need a clone recipe for this bad-boy. I LOVE Mosaic hops, and this beer just gives me another reason to do so. The herbal notes from the nose carry over to the palate, but aren't cloying in any way, and invite you to sip... and sip... and sip... until your glass is empty, and you're sad that your beer is gone. *Sighs*

M - Light Carbonation for an IPA, which does this beer a good bit of justice, by not forcing the hop resins onto your tongue. A little bit creamy, but also slick and slightly oily. Once again, I could drink this beer all day. That being said, if I did, I wouldn't accomplish anything, because after one pint, I'm feeling a bit "right"...

o - H&G outdid themselves with this one. I really wish it was more available in DFW, but one can wish in one hand, and so on and so forth. All across the board, this beer is what every other Mosaic-based IPA wishes that it was. Take a backseat, Community and Victory. Hops & Grain kicked your collective asses with this release!!! If you have a chance to get your hands on even a single pint of this beer, DO EEET! Your tongue, liver, and sanity will thank you in every way possible. (And so will I, and the nice folks at H&G, who deserve a cookie and a high-five for crafting this delicious beer.)
Cheers!!!
