Pours a darker orange color with a minimal head that dissipates right away and leaves a thin ring of lacing. Smells of tons of peaches, light juicy orange, mango, maybe some papaya or guava, stonefruit, along with some carmel from the malt, and light honey. Somewhat dry aroma. Taste starts with lots of sweet, juicy fruits. Peach, mango, papaya, and some grapefruit. Sweetness from the honey shows through already. The middle brings more honey sweetness as well as some carmel malts that really balance the fruity hops. Starting to get the resinous bitterness from the nugget hops. The finish a wonderful combination of fruity hops, sweetness, and slight bitterness. Lots of juicy peach, mango, some tangerine, papaya, stonefruit, little grapefruit peel, honey, and carmel. Slightly dry and bitter, but the sweetness cuts the dryness and bitterness wonderfully. Full body with a creamy and oily mouthfeel. The mosaic hop never disappoints, and the nugget hops provide a nice resinous bitterness to contrast the fruity qualities of the mosaic hops. Hoppy, yet very balanced and the flavors the hops bring are pretty complex. One of the best showcases of mosaic hops I've had. Excellent double ipa.
