A: The beer is very hazy dark yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that died down rather quickly, leaving a lacy webbing of bubbles on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of floral and grassy hops are present in the nose along with some hints of apricots.
T: The taste mostly follows the smell and also has notes of tangerines. The hops contribute a moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels just about medium-bodied and relatively crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This Double IPA doesn't seem to have nearly as strong as a malt backbone compared to other beers in the style, but it has an interesting mix of aromas and flavors from the hops and the lighter body nature of this beer makes it rather easy to drink.

Connecticut's Headdy...

Real nice Beer, however it did have a Lagunitas smell which I associate with "Generic Hop Juice" concentrate. The taste made me forget about the "stoopid" other smell.... It did have a certain VT beers root with its own style at the end , and it had no chunks!.... oh it was pricey. Wanted to buy the 12 pk cans of the mosaic session, but balked at the 23.99 price.

This 6 came in at 12.99 ( nothing wrong with that for the DIPA, but 12 is usually my limit regardless) with 2 of the Jam beers as subs for the missing 2 DIPA's...

Look for em and give em a run....Solid
