Pretty deep amber and some lacing.

Bit of a tropical fruit head. Not too strong.

They went pretty malty on this one. The Mosaic hops I get that orange mandarin. Some grassy dirty bitterness.

Overall this one is a goo IPA. Looking for more fruit flavor maybe.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

12oz bottle, Enjoy before Oct 2014
L - creamy ivory head fades to a foam atop a brilliant deep amber colored ale
S - sweet, juicy, fruity tropical fruit with bread and caramel
T - sweet and juicy; caramel and bready malt backbone with juicy, floral, tropical, hops. A bit earthy and peppery spice on the finish. Eucalyptus flavor does come though, but I don't think I would have named it without the hint that the label noted
F - medium body, creamy, smooth, finishes clean
O - I like this one more than the East Kent Goldings single hop, but that was a given.

12 ounce bottle into signature pint glass, best before 10/2014. Pours crystal clear orange/copper color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of peach, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, pineapple, mango, floral, grass, light pine, caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with juicy citrus/tropical hops and moderate malt sweetness; with good strength. Taste of peach, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, mango, orange peel, floral, grass, light pine, caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Fair amount of floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of peach, pineapple, tangerine, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, light pine, caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and robustness of juicy citrus/tropical hops and moderate malt sweetness; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and fairly creamy/sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice single hop IPA. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/tropical hops and moderate malt sweetness; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
