Six-pack from Safeway. Bottle label design is awesome, really punchy and memorable. The beer packs the same punch too!

Pours a dark orange color, real nice lacing and a minimal foamy head (standard for IPA I have found).

Smells really strong of citrus hops, some of the bread of the malt, but a really pronounced hop citrus/ lemon smell. Considering the name I can only guess that's from the Mosaic profile. Would've liked a bit more pine notes, or more floral to balance it out.

Tastes similar to the smell. It is a strong punch of citrus mouth feel. The taste is where the pine comes in, especially in the finish. Oily and lingers, but in a good way. Closest comparison would be lemongrass.

Mouth feel is nice. The taste really lingers. Means less sips required to enjoy! You still want to keep sipping, though. Reminds me of the feeling you get by drinking something tart: your tongue begs for the sting after it's gone!

I enjoy this beer. It's not my favorite, and I wouldn't choose a session with it (it's almost too strong of a flavor for me to want to session) but for a low abv IPA that still has a lot of flavor, this is a great option.

Poured into a Dogfish Head pint glass. Pours a slightly cloudy coppery amber with an attractive two finger white head with good retention and lots of lacing. Aroma of grassy hops, bready malt, stone fruit, nice. Flavor of grassy hops, biscuit malt, light fruit, finishes a bit dry with a slight metallic element. Medium bodied. Not bad at all. Finish is slightly off, but the overall hop and malt bill are nice and well balanced. Expected Mosaic flavor and light bitterness. A worthy session IPA.
