12oz bottle into tulip appears perfectly clear copper with an offwhite cap that holds well.

Aroma of fruit pith, pulp and rinds like grapefruit meets orange with grass and stanky cheese.

Tastes slightly of caramel malt, grassy, herbal and pithy with subdued tropical fruitiness and almost a touch of butter.

Medium to light in body with modest carbonation. Decent not outstanding.

Pours a clear gold color. 1/3 inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of citrus hops, slight grass, slight floral hops, hint of sweet malt, and a hint of alcohol. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level. There is a noticeable hop bitterness. Tastes of grass, floral hops, citrus hops, hint of sweet malt, slight citrus, and a slight herbal note. Overall, good appearance, body, blend, and feel.

Date: Bottled on 10/04/18, enjoyed on 11/06/18.

Appearance: Standard IPA gold with a finger of white head.

Aroma: Smells somewhat resinous with a sticky sweetness and tea like aromas. Also there is the standard pine with hints of grapefruit, a little mango, and maybe lemon.

Taste: The mosaic version does have a sweetness to it, but the massive bitterness balances it nicely. Though, when I say sweetness, I mean sweet for Stone. There is a bit of an herbal thing going on as well, which leaves a decent hop bite. I like this one, it feels like part Dogfish Head 90 Minute and part Bells Hopslam, just with less syrup like malts. The only real downside I can find here is that it feels a little more thin compared to their regular IPA or Delicious IPA, still really great beer at an economical price.

The body was very clear, amber in color, and formed a smallish head, that did not get thicker than one finger width. The aroma was that of grapefruit, peach, and pine. The flavor provided consisted of lemon, pear, and green apple. The malts provided a caramelized backbone reminiscent of butterscotch candy. The feel was soft and the body was medium in thickness. The finish was sweeter than typical for the style, as the hops faded some past mid sip.

DATE: July 7, 2017... OCCASION: another hard summer day's work comes to its end--time to replenish the carbs and proteins... GLASSWARE: Liberty Craft House pint... pours a vibrant, active golden body with a nearly half-glass of head that forms crags and craters all down its pint... aromatic pine, wild berries, overpowering pineapple and citrus... at 7.7% ABV, quite a smooth ride... active at the teeth and lasting in its finish... body is medium, rich and creamy... the mosaic is the star: grapefruit, mango, lemon, big pine return, and berry makes for a cocktail of flavor profile that inspires the next sip... bold hops with minimal balance, but what should one expect from a Mosaic-centric beer... I love the idea of this series, and hope to imbibe more of them as they are released... the combination of fruitiness and sharpness make for a worthwhile drink...

Pour is yellow. Faint smelling. Taste is beautiful, this really showcases the mosaic hops in the sense that it is bright and tropical with a punching after taste of citrus-y spice. Can't decide what season it is. All in all, quite a refreshing beer.

Pretty gold beer with a relaxed dwindling head. Little past the enjoy by date but still a dank, slightly floral taste by the mosaic. Piney dank smell. Excellent finish, balanced wet/dry. Hoppy as always with the Stones. Cheers!
