Potentially good coffee beer but for me the addition of lemon ruins it.

This is the beer that turned me on to mosaic hops. Pretty much just a five in my book.RIP

Reeked of whiskey when I opened it. Unfortunately, boozy taste dominated the flavor. I like the concept of the single hop but I think this brew needed a variety of hops to offset the boozy overtones. Would not drink again.

I enjoyed this from the 12oz in a goblet chilled.

This is a beautiful beer, golden sunrise shade with mild haze and thick white cap with bead that is fine and lots of lace sticks. The smell has a mildly malt oriented aroma with floral scent of hops with slight yeast ester adding fruity odor with malt adding a bready smell. The feel has a fruity tangy and moderately carbonated quality with slightly bitter and earthy texture with mostly dry finish.

Taste of green hoppiness with light citrus quality and rind-like flavor with a subtle peppery spice with a mild yeast flavor and supplementary malt adding a mild sweet taste with slight spiciness mid palate with slight tropical fruit aspect from the hops in the dry finish. Overall I liked this -good, but not really that great -I imagine it could be better fresh or on tap, but this is not a great example of the style even though overall enjoyment is better than average.

2014 12oz bottle.

Clear amber body with a very good head. Ample sticky lacing.
This drinks like a malty IPA. A bit more malt load than average for an APA, I think, and definitely more hoppy. The Mosaic hops are an exellent choice for a single hop ale: they are relatively complex and work well, especialy in terms of flavor, on theri own.

Medium body with crisp carbonation.

O: an excellent, bold APA
