Poured from 22 oz bomber into snifter

a - Poured red orange and beautiful with 2 finger white lacy head.

s - Smelled like tropical fruit candy. Very appealing.

T - Tastes Wonderful. Tropical Fruit, Candy, the candy malt flavor goes perfectly with the fruity hop character. I am not too familiar with Mosaic hops, but it tastes like a mix of Citra and Equinox. Finishes with a pleasant sticky bitterness to balance it out.

M - Mouthfeel is perfect for an IPA. Sticky but refreshing.

O - A wonderful beer. I would definitely seek out.

I STOLE THIS REVIEW FROM JOE1510...... because he totally NAILED the description. hope you aint pissed bro, because your review was so dead on I could not have said it any better!!! thank you to the guy who mailed me this beautiful bottle. notice the chick's leg is morphing into a sea creature's leg????
here is Joe1510's review:

22oz Bomber

Big thanks to both Matt and Mark for grabbing me a bottle of this nectar. Cheers, fellas! Anicca is ruby red and absolutely glows when around any amount of light. A good amount of haze clouds up the body while an off white head, bordering on yellow, sits atop like a crown. The foam grows immediately dense and frothy leaving big, fat clumpy lacing down the glass.

Mosaic brings fistfuls of fruit to the party. Tangerine and apricot, pineapple and papaya, underripe berries, grapefruit and orange, this beer has it all and every swirl of the glass brings a different facet. The malt base is soft and remains in the background with a neutral sugar cookie sweetness. This beer is all about a Mosaic showcase.

Each and every drink of Anicca has the ability to slightly change, just like the nose suggested. Leathery apricot gets it going with tangerine close behind. The underripe berries pick up in the middle along with grapefruit and orange. The tropicals really pop on the backend with pineapple in the forefront and papaya to clean it all up. A simple sugar cookie maltiness lays the base. There are even undercurrents of pine sap here and there. Delicious!

A moderately weighted body combined with a soft but active carbonation make for a luxurious body. It's light enough that I'm drinking far faster than I should and the bitterness eventually reaches just below moderate. Anicca is ridiculously easy to put away.

Last years bottles were from Three Floyds and this years were from Half Acre. Both were fantastic. Not often do you come across IPAs with this much juiciness and when you do you take notice. An excellent beer!
