Fall To Pieces - Mosaic IPAFall To Pieces - Mosaic IPA
Notes: Our Mosaic masterpiece puts juicy, tropical hops at the forefront of this light-bodied, delicious IPA. Notes of mango, honey, and papaya entice, along with a dank hint of green fruit.

3.6/5  rDev -11.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours a clear, light orange color with a creamy-white head. SRM of 8. (3.75)

Aroma: Aromas of pineapple juice, green melon, honeydew. A little bit of mango & papaya like the can says. Tropical and classic for Mosaic. Then some cinnamon spice aroma comes off the end. Very green and cinnamon. Like a cinnamon mint. (3.75)

Flavor: Flavor follows the nose with pineapple and grapefruit juice w/ light mango. A bit of mango flavor for sure. Then green melon and honeydew before a mild cinnamon spice comes through on the end. Not very bitter. Finishes relatively light, and clean. (3.50)

Feel: Lighter-bodied. Decent carbonation. Clean and crisp on the palate. (3.75)

Compared to Odell's IPA 4/25/20: Pours a lighter color. Similar aroma strength. More pineapple and green melon. Less unripened tropical fruit and herbs. Finishes lighter, cleaner, and dryer with less bitterness.

Overall: A lighter-bodied IPA. Lighter Mosaic qualities. Pineapple and green melon. No dankness or berry. But there is this touch of cinnamon mint which I found a bit unique. I wonder if anyone else gets cinnamon in here. Either way, it's nothing to go out of your way for, and I probably won't buy it again. Still, a decent IPA. (Final Rating: 3.60)

From a 12oz can:

Appearance: Gold, particles in suspension, big head.

Smell: Fruity, light citrus.

Taste: Slight sweetness, mild fruit, then a dry finish.

Overall: Picked up the Surly thaw pack and was looking forward to this beer as several raved about it on the message board. It was solid but not spectacular, maybe 2 months of age was too much. I like mosaic beers and this was good but not great.

Has a very slight haze but otherwise looks like a proper IPA. Plenty of spotty lacing is left down the glass. Slightly dank aroma with notes of tropical fruit and citrus and maybe a little pine. Bitterness is rather mild with the finish being slightly sweet. Nice hop flavors of tropical fruit and citrus. Flavor and feel makes this beer deceptively light considering its ABV. I do like the carbonation.

Pours a hazed light golden color with a fresh white head. Smell is fruity with citrus ,herbal and tropical notes Taste is sweet fresh citrus with notes of vanilla and oranges, mixing with candied grapes and herbal grassy notes. Mouth feel mildly bitter with sweet citrus and prickly tropical fruit notes very drinkable.

12oz can. Stamped canning date is '12/12/19'. From the variety pack called "Thaw Pack - In Thaw We Trust".
Partly cloudy, gold colored body. One finger of white head upon pouring sticks around as creamy and small bubble cap. Leaves behind scattered sheets of lacing.
Aroma of fruity and floral hops. There is also a touch of dankness.
Taste is soft, with tropical fruit and sweet honey flavors. During the last quarter of the taste profile there is a mild dank bitterness that appears. Overall bitterness is low.
More than medium mouth feel. Has a soft and coating texture. Excellent carbonation.
"Light bodied and delicious" as described by Surly. A real fruity and medium sweet IPS, without prominent bitterness. Easy to imbibe, and alcohol is nowhere to be found.
