I would put this in the top 5 worst beers I have ever had. The bright spot....this one presented and confirmed my aversion to Mosaic hops.

Ever ate a Pine tree. Apparently some parts are drinkable. Glad it was only $7.50/sixer. Unfortunately, one more to choke down,

Pours golden with little head but still very carbonated. I'm not a hopps fan so since this was a single hop I thought it may be mild enough, I was wrong. Sorry just not my type.

Pours with a thin head that fades very quickly, not a lot of lacing. Faint aroma is grainy, catty, Mouthfeel is on the thin side, feels more like a session ale to me. Color is a golden yellow, almost looks like a typical macro beer. The taste is really catty, not very pleasant really.

I'm a big Founder's fan but next to All Day Ipa, this is probably my least favorite. It just doesn't satisfy my desire for a beer. Don't set your expectations high or you will be disappointed. I bought 2 15 packs of this before I actually tried it and it's a chore trying to get through them, I really don't like this beer and I don't understand the high ratings for it, I will never buy this again, it's terrible,

Tighly knit foamed head over a cloudy copper body. Citrusly spiced taste. A solid beer as usual from Founders that is refreshing without over powering hops.

Mosaic Promise...a promise to disappoint!

Poured a very pretty pear juice color.
Head was white and thick, actually smelled like Pomolive dish soap,wierd!
Other smells that came through were a green apple-ish grapefruit peel, pleasant! Okay here comes the disappointment: The taste... a super bitter dry as hell grapefruit peel. And the bitter wasn't pleasant. It's the kind of bitter that sticks around and overtakes you drinking experience. No malt character that I could sense. Mouth feel was absent, which only multiplied the Asprin-like bitterness.


Not a great beer in my opinion. sorry I guess.
