Pours a light golden coloration with a medium, fizzy head. Smells is quite fresh, floral and hoppy, with just a tad of biscuity malt coming through. Notes of citrus and tropical fruits: tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple and passion fruit. Taste follows the nose, with a floral, hoppy, fresh, zesty flavour supported by just a hint of biscuity malt. Notes of tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple and passion fruit, with a light, dry bitterness coming through in the aftertaste. Very pleasant, but unspectacular IPA with a nice balance of citrus and tropical fruit and a nice, inoffensive bitterness.

Fantastic aroma! On the same bandwidth as Ballast Point Sculpin, way lighter and way more affordable. Could be one of my go to beers.

Bottle - pours a hazed honey gold with a 1 finger white meringue cap that reduces to a surface lace and lasts, lacing the glass side....aroma- one of the most pleasant I have experienced in crafted IPAs - pungent floral exotic fruit tones over some cinnamon bread notes. Flavor is lightly complex with yeast phenols battling with hop fusions for dominance ...moderate wet finish with lots of flavor amalgams chewing away at the plate...going to a lightly bitter dry finish - very excellent brew for a bottle product,

Smooth with that finishing bite that is the signature of a great ale. Perfect single hop beer

Pours pale gold, very slight haze. complexion. Light head gives way to a slight collar.
The nose is immediately apparent with strong citrus orange and floral hops. I didn’t really notice the malt but it’s not an issue given the wonderful hop aroma.
Taste is really good. Clean, relatively crips but the malt gives it body. The Mosaic hops bring plenty of citrus, pine and floral flavors, especially on the backend. Slight bitterness but a very clean, somewhat dry finish.
Mouthfeel is great with malty body and mild carbonation.
Overall, I really like this it’s an all season beer for more. Works on a hot summer day, albeit with a bit more body and flavor than most ice cold summer beers. Also great in the winter with a heavier or spicy meal.
