12oz bottle, Enjoy before Oct 2014
L - copper colored ale with a creamy beige head that holds good retention
S - grapefruit, fruit, pine, caramel, bread
T - bold malt backbone with bready, caramely sweetness, fruity grapefruit is a little pungent with some pine in there
F - medium, resinous, finishes dry with lingering grapefruit pith and pine
O - I like the Simcoe hops and the pungency it provides; not bad for what it is, but I liked the Mosaic more.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours with a finger and a half of head which settled slightly but was very present while drinking. Dark, almost burnt orange color. Sticky lacing left behind at each level. Active carbonation was bright, a touch above average for the style.

Smell: Heavier saturated citrus with biscuity malts on the front. Some lighter tropical fruits that I associate with Simcoe pop up on the body. The finish is some bold pine and medium bodied fruits with accents of oranges, pineapple, and grapefruit.

Taste: Biscuit and caramel malts warm up the palate which parlays into some still prevalent Simcoe hop profile. Lingering citrus with some lighter tones of pineapple, mangos, and kiwis show up on the body. The finish is some pine and caramel malts.

Mouthfeel: Balanced hop bitterness with brighter fruit tones. Solid malt backbone. Carbonation fits.

Overall: I know I am a little late to the party with these, I'm sure fresher this would have even been a better beer. Will get one of these fresher next year and revisit, but regardless, this was still very solid.
