Pours a hazy, golden color. 1/2 inch head of a white color. Good retention and good lacing. Smells of strong hops, strong floral, sweet malt, slight alcohol, and a hint of yeast. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of strong citrus hops, floral hops, sweet malt, slight alcohol, and a hint of yeast. Overall, good appearance, aroma, and body. Not complex, but still a solid IPA.

22 oz bomber pours a hazed orange color with a tight-bubbled off-white head. Nice retention and average retention.

Nose is a wonerfully bright citrus aroma. Tropical and lightly malted. Smells really nice.

Taste is freshly crushed grains, bright juicy hops and maybe a touch of biscuits. The yeast is notable with a nutty flavor. Mouthfeel is light and airy with a soft carbonation. Bitterness is not overly biting, but lingers long after. Dang good IPA, I've really been digging on these 4 hands beers my dad brought back from Missouri last week.

Properly aged my friends (1-2mo old).

The beer pours a clear golden amber topped by a foamy inch of white head that fades into a layer of thin fluff. The nose is still the same sweet, grapefruit/tropical fruits, grass, green tea & alcohol I remember layered with more undertones of wet cardboard. Nothing too potent or magical, but like I said...it's properly aged. The taste is certainly as expected, distinct mosaic upfront that fades into light sugar and some citrus rind bitterness. I would not describe this as sweet or juicy AIPA, but it definitely has enough sweetness and body based on my expectations. It's mild-medium bodied, a bit watery, has adequate carb, reserved sucrose - little maltiness, a building citrus-rind bitterness, semi-dry finish, and masked alcohol. Overall not a bad IPA and one I remember having more pop when it was fresh. However, I'm never a fan of citrus-rind mouthfeels that don't have the aromatics or sweetness to back it up.

The label this year says Resurrected and not Resurrection as before. Not sure if other changes were made.

Poured from the bottle a bright and clear copper color with one finger of off-white head. Light sheet of lacing left behind.

Deep aroma of pineapple and tropical fruits with a light note of malts..

The taste opens with a big juicy bite of pineapple and light tropical fruits. Light malt notes i the finish.

Medium bodied and slightly dry with a moderate carbonation.

This is a really nice IPA from 4 Hands. I'm gonna have it often while it's out.

Poured into a tulip glass from a 22 oz bottle.

Pours a gorgeous bright amber with orange hues. Some nice golden edges to the brew and a nice half inch medium dense head. The head is white to off white and is a bit sticky.

Aroma is pretty amazing. Im hesitant to rate it a 5.0 but GD it is close. Juicy hop deliciousness. Notes of mango and pineapple. Completely tropical and enticing and refreshing. I just want to smell it forever. The juice notes are just incredible and even addicting. There is also some nice bready balancing notes on the back end that give the brew a more American Pale Ale note.

Flavor starts off with tropical fruit notes and hoppy grassy notes. Notes of mild citrus grapefruit and some nice slight mango and pineapple. There is some mild resinous notes but its very clean and citrusy. The Mosaic hops really shine. There is a nice bready and earthy grain notes in the middle of the brew that play really well with the delicious and citrusy hop notes. Definitely a more hop heavy IPA with a bit of harshness but that good for me. The brew really opens up as it warms. Delicious. Mouthfeel is pretty good a bit over carbonated for me.

Overall, this brew is pretty delicious. The Mosaic notes really make this brew a treat. They are so juicy and powerful but also come with a nice citrus traditional West Coast IPA notes. Nice bready malt notes as well. Pretty juicy and earthy.
