I got this off the single shelf at the nearby Giant Eagle store. It poured a clear yellow with white head that is not leaving any lace. The scent had hints of tropical fruit. The taste is on the sweeter tropical fruit side. The mouthfeel is medium in body with good carbonation. Overall it's a solid beer.

Poured from a can into a Woodburn tulip. The pour is gold and hazy with a majestic 3 fingers of fine white head. Lots of ripe tropical fruit: grapefruit, nectarines, peaches, pineapple, and oranges.

Medium-full body with a creamy feel and a dank hoppy flavor that carries plenty of sweet malt. Up front there is a lot of sweet bread and marmalade, then the hops creep in and amp up the bitterness. Still, the sweet malt backbone persists and never gets overwhelmed. This beer could carry even more hoppy flavor than it does with no problem.

Better than the Columbus-hopped Mandala, but not quite as good as Simcoe-hopped Mandala and nowhere near the level of Citra- or Centennial-hopped Mandala. The Mosaic hops bring an over-ripe tropical fruit flavor that melds with the sweet malt and results in a slightly medicinal flavor that grows on you as you work through the glass. I think a Galaxy-hopped Mandala would be worth trying.

Canned on 10/13/17. 12oz can poured into a tulip. Pours a light golden with nice clarity and has bubbles racing upwards; small eggshell white head that falls leaving nice retention and sticky lacing. The aromas nice but subtle. Hints of orange cream and pepper skin. Malts are there. I know this will sound weird, but it almost has a pizza aroma going on. The flavors are zesty. Slightly spicy. Blend of citrus and tropical fruits. Possibly some rye and black pepper in the mix. Nice hop bitterness. Malts are there but almost take a backseat in the flavor department. Mild alcohol flavors in the finish, but it's not hot or boozy. Mouthfeel is very nice. It's full-bodied with active carbonation. It's slightly fluffy and smooth.

This is a solid DIPA. The mosaic hops come through. There's something slightly "odd" about this one and I can't put my finger on it. This isn't one of my personal favorites from their Mandala series, but it's still enjoyable and fun to drink.
