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

12oz bottle, DOB 03/13/14. Poured into a Libby globe porter glass.

Appearance: Golden amber with a definite haze to it (appears to be some chill haze). Nicely dense off-white head with lots of persistent lacing.

Smell: Mango, lemon, pine. Nicely hoppy in an aromatic way.

Taste: Nicely balance hops and sweet malt. Mango and citrus up front, then a sweet malt middle, followed by a pine finish. The malt sweetness has some bread-like quality to it, but there is also some caramelized flavor in there as well mixed in with the pine at the finish.

Mouthfeel: Good carbonation, a bit sticky underneath, and as I drink more, the hop oils begin to build up on my teeth.

Overall / Drinkability: A nice showcase of a single hop and a single malt. I rather enjoyed this beer and I wonder if it would have been even better had I bought it a few months ago when first released. The flavors have held up nicely with time; the higher ABV probably helps with that. Not massively bitter - very drinkable and I think I'd be in trouble if I had another as the alcohol is well hidden. Good beer!
