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.

3.48/5  rDev -16.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

A: Pours a hazed orange color. Eventually, the white head rises to about two fingers. As that gently recedes, spiderweb looking lace is left behind.
S: Orange and lemon zest, with a big piny aroma lingering. Some caramel sweetness in the nose, but not really enough to balance the big piny aroma. While nothing is wrong with that, just a little unbalanced for my tastes.
T: A sweetness hits me up front, which is kind of opposite from the nose. Though that quickly fade, and the orange zest and pine bitterness take over. The bitterness lingers on forever.
M/D: A medium body and light to moderate carbonation. Finishes dry, but to thin. The bitterness is a little to strong for me. It is taking me a little longer to finish this than I want.

No freshness date on the bottle or six pack, but seems fresh enough to me. I am not a hop head, but do appreciate IPA's. This is just to much lingering bitterness for me. Hop heads mileage may vary.

Bottle (no date unfortunately) poured into my teku...

A - Dark orange in color, hard pour but half finger head is gone instantly with a nice sticky lace

S - Orange zest, pez candy, lemon/lime, grassy

T - Tropical fruits, starburst, caramel with a slightly malty finish. Really awesome balance

M - Light body, buttery smooth, mild carbonation

O - Received this as an extra in a trade and sure glad I did. Really needs a bottle date though. Although the appearance and muted aroma were a disappointment, this beer has a spectacular balance between fruits and malts with a nice bite and a great mouth. Highly quaffable and a solid showcasing of mosaic hops, well done!
