Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a tulip glass. Best by 05/06/14

A- Pours a deep copper with a high degree of clarity. Has a small very slightly off-white head that dissipated to a thin ring.

S- Getting a lot of stone fruits like a juicy ripe peach, smells a lot like another recent beer I had Hi-Res. Tropical notes of passion fruit and some of that honey malt coming through. The alcohol is coming through slightly but pretty well masked, Mosaic is fragrant enough to overpower the alcohol.

T- Similar to aroma, passion fruit, peach, apricot, slight floral notes, nice smooth bitterness. Lovely sweet malts, papaya. Alcohol is hidden well, better than in the aroma.

M- Nice on the heavier side of medium for a dipa which is right where I like it.

O- I'm really impressed by this beer. After having a few of the recent popular Mosaic beers and not really liking the sort of medicinal aspect of this hop I was surprised to not get any of that in this beer, just the wide variety of fruits that I like out of Mosaic. Only got one bottle of this to test the waters and will definitely be going back for a full 4-pack.
