on tap at APEX, Portland

Burnished gold with white film.
Musty pulped mango nose with herb, resin, and lots of sourness, plus a good bit of skunk. Not sure it’s what I’d expect.
Apricot Danish with tart fruity acid then huge mango, tropical fruit hops.
Kumquat finish and tart linger.
Medium, oily, chewy, no burn.

Crazy with the tropical fruit - Mosaic redux. Almost New Zealand in the fruitiness. Juicy like a smoothie. Just way too yummy.

12.7 oz bottle, bottled on 2/11/14. Pours hazy yellow orange with a small white head that goes to a thin film and leaves some lacing.

The aroma is musty stinky hops with some onion and garlic and a little vomit.

The flavor is sweet sugary malts with some vegetal spicy hops. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, this was not good. Overly sweet with a lot of stinky onion and garlic and a little vomit.

32oz grenade from the tin bucket in Portland, split

Peachy-orange body - big aromas of melon, grapefruit, booze. The mosaic trend is getting a bit out of control (i'll take my straight Citra back, please) - this "single-hop" beer was just OK i thought. The alcohol wears a banana suit - you can't miss it. Melon, sugary bitter citrus, skunk, a touch metallic.

Appearance. Pours a nice hazy gold with a touch of orange and a finger of thick and sticky looking white head.

Smell. Those mosaic hops. Jammy tropical fruits, yellow grapefruit and a bit of cedar. There's a touch of green onion coming through as well but not super offputting. A touch of sweet light malt as well.

Taste. Big tropical and citrus fruits, that mosaic hop flavour. Some sweet light malts, very little bitterness in the finish considering the big hop flavours but then again, mosaic. It is a little bitter in the dryish finish.

Mouthfeel. Medium-full body, low+ and very smooth arbonation.

Overall. Great stuff. I would gladly drink another one.
