4.25/5 rDev +4.7%
Pours a nice orange semi translucent color with decent head. Very malty and floral smell. No pine or citrus hops in this one. Taste is very solid. Malty and sweet with some resinous hop qualities. Smooth and easy to drink with no bitterness in the finish. Overall I think this is a solid beer and I'd like to try again. I still am confused how APA is this is classified as an APA but at 8.1% level. I guess because its so malt forward.

This beer was a pleasant surprise, even though I already like Southern Tier's 2xipa. It pours a darker, ambery color, with a modest head. A great nose of hops, not over the top, but delicious. Definitely some tropical fruitiness in the smell, along with the classics. The taste follows suit nicely and it's notably non-bitter, and non-boozy, despite the 8%abv. Great finish, very refreshing. It won't knock your socks off, but a very solid beer!

I liked this beer quite a bit. It was sweeter than I thought it would be, however. The malt character broke through the hops more powerfully than I expected and the alcohol taste was very present. For a pale ale like this, I was surprised that for me most of the bitterness came from the alcohol and toasted malt, rather than from the hops. They were there, for sure, and added great character, but more in the nose than in the middle. Good drinking (had it at the proof bar/brewery in Tallahassee)

awesome mosaic driven imperial pale here. this series has been great, and this brew may be my favorite of the lot. pale in color, surprisingly so, with a tall white head and an incredible nose of fresh dripping mosaic, unmistakable for anyone who knows this varietal at all. slight floral spice with all the tropical lushness of the hop. the flavor is all hops, the malt, while fresh and obviously providing plenty of fermentables, adds very little in terms of flavor. a mellow crackery profile is all, before the vibrant mosaic with its pineapple and orange citrus characteristics comes in, leaving an almost honey sweetness in there with the bitterness. just over 8% abv is a great level for this beer, it mandates a ton of hops, and with mosaic being so intense, its a cool way to feature them. also in a pale instead of an ipa, its made by not requiring much bitterness, so its sort of an open field for the mosaic, all late kettle, and just beautifully juicy. nice carbonation and pretty full in body, dry enough to be refreshing, big enough to be satisfying in four seasons. one of the better built beers for the mosaic hop I have seen, really tasty stuff.

Golden in color with a huge white head. Beautiful. Loving the lacing as this goes down.
Nose is subtle. Blueberry, pear and light citrus.
Whoa this is delicious. Smooth with a medium body and just a hint of background bitterness initially and the bitterness grows with the aftertaste. Pleasing fruity esters with some notes of alcohol but at 8.1% it has to be hard to hide.
The blueberry pops from the mosaic hops and there is a nice bready/biscuity character from the malt. Subtle hints if vanilla find there way into the aftertaste with a lingering bitterness that begs for another sip. This might be my first single malt single hop beer and it is a pleasure. I could drink this all night.
