Served in a teku.

The down the middle pour results in a finger's width of white, puffy foam. A copper, clear body looks the part of a well made beer.

The nose explodes with sweet tropical fruits and honey. The candied orange, papaya, and berry scents are so enticing! There is a slight fusel quality buried under everything, with an herbal tinge.

The palate mimics the nose well, all the way through to the finish. The berry notes are even more apparent if anything. The bitterness in the finish sneaks up slowly. The beer is predominantly sweet on the palate from the tropical fruit hoppiness and caramel-like malts.

This Community offering has a nice medium-bodied heft with a creamy and slightly drying finish.

Mosaic is a heck of an IPA! The berry, tropical fruitiness of this beer is astounding. If you like your IPA's sweet, then this one will do the trick.

A: Clear orange/copper color. Full Head and heavy lacing.
S: Citrus hop aroma. Wonderful smell.
T: Bitter citrus hops and some sweet malts to keep it together.
M: Sticky medium feel.
O: I love that I can get this beer super fresh in my own backyard. This one is almost too easy to drink with that 8.6% abv. More people need to know about this beer.

Poured into a snifter from a 12 ounce bottle.

It's got a dark amber body with perfect clarity and a few occasional carbonation bubbles visible. The head is frothy and lasts a while before leaving traces of lace. 4.25

Hints of citrus and tropical fruit on the nose, but it's not as big or aggressive as other IPAs I've had lately. There's resinous hop aroma, sweet caramel and toffee, and a touch of booze. 4.0

Not too much varies from nose to tongue, as it's still got a good fruity profile with citrus and maybe passionfruit. There's still a good malty element providing sweet caramel flavor. 4

It's smooth, mellow, medium-bodied and finishing with a quick bitter bite. The sweetness is also understated but with a bit of creaminess makes for a dessert-like quality. There's no sign of booze to be found. 4.25

This is a sleeper. I hadn't heard much of it before but I won't soon forget it. 4

Definitely a well kept secret, very drinkable for such a high ABV.

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours hazy copper with a tinge of orange. Caked off-white head is foamy and tops my chalice. Thick lacing evident already. Great-looking.
Smells lightly of zesty citrus and light sweet bread, a hint of pineapple, and a hint of pepper.
Taste is a burst of fresh citrusy (orange) hops with a sweet malt backbone that plays well in the overall balance so as to let the hops shine. Caramel, biscuit. Solid.
Mouthfeel is creamy and bitter, with medium carbonation and a spicy bite at the end. A classic ipa taste with some earth to it. Recommended to all ipa fans.

The beer poured a slightly hazy amber with a full and fluffy white head that left generous lacing. The aroma was that perfect Mosaic hop of big tropical and citrus fruit with some sweetness holding it all together. The taste followed with the same fresh, big and bright tropical fruits and orange citrus with a subtle sweetness carrying all the fruity bitter hops. The flavor left a slick and bitter resinous coating on my palate that made this an incredible IPA. A phenomenal all around IPA and a wonderful beer from Community in Dallas.

Appearance: cloudy and golden, something like raw honey. A thin head persists, along with some good lacing.
Smell: not too aggressive on the nose. I'm getting more of a yeast smell than anything.
Taste: the first thing that comes to mind is juicy. Citrusy hops dominate, and any bitterness is offset by the body and flavor of the residual yeast.
Mouthfeel: rounded, smooth and full-bodied
Overall: a nice unfiltered IPA that's low on bitterness and high on fruit-flavored hops. Very pleasant. Definitely would order again.
