Mosaic Promise showcases two unique ingredients: Mosaic hops and Golden Promise malt.

A. Pours a clear golden yellow into a pint glass. One inch head that settles quickly. Really nice artwork on the label.
S. Got a really nice floral aroma. Not nearly as bitter as the IPA's I've been drinking all summer.
T. Surprisingly complex for a one hop/one malt brew. Easy drinking as a result of the low ABV. Mild hop flavor, not overpowering at all.
M. Light on the tongue with a crisp. clean finish.
O. Thank you sir, may I have another? I still prefer the stronger hop kick from IPA's and DIPA's but I'll have no problem finishing a six pack of this. Very enjoyable.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Founders shaker glass. Bottled on 08/16/2014.

Appearance: Pours a hazy golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. About one finger of off white head which settles into a thin patchy layer.

Smell: A juicy and floral balanced aroma with good hints of citrus and floral hops with bready biscuit. Upfront citrus hops with hints of mango juice, orange peel, lemon zest, grapefruit, pineapple, tangerine, and melon. Floral and earthy hops with hints of pine and grass. Solid malt presence with bready hints of biscuit, cracker, caramel, and yeast. A very good smell.

Taste: Like the smells hints at, a very juicy and floral taste that is balanced but leans a little more in favor of juicy hops. Big citrus presence with notes of mango, grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, tangerine, pineapple, and melon. Also some floral, earthy, and herbal hop notes with some pine and grass. Good malt balance with bready notes of biscuit, grains, cracker, caramel, and yeast. A really solid taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Crisp, juicy, and very smooth with a fairly drying finish.

Overall: A very good juicy ale. Very nice citrus and floral hop flavors with a solid crisp malt presence.
