Poured from a 750ml growler, 3 days old. Pours a hazy orange color. The nose id loaded with tropic flavors. Like the nose, the taste is pineapple, mango, orange. A creamy thick mouthfeel, this is a world class IPA

750ml swing top poured into a tulip glass filled on7/29

A: Soapy white head that settles to a film and laces the glass. Body is a bright tan amber with a very murky clarity.

S: lots of papaya and mango a little herbal and earthiness a little cantaloupe and pineapple.

T: Very soft beautiful papaya cantaloupe and honeydew with a little lemon and pineapple mixed in. A little bit of spiciness and bitterness on the end.

M: not as carbonated as #4 softer mouthfeel nice cling of fresh cut grass and a little lemon.

O: This beer is a delight to drink the lush tropical fruit mixed with a huge dose of cantaloupe and grass makes for an easy drinking beer. The soft body great bitterness just makes it outstanding.

One of my favorite IPAs. Love the mosaic! Appearance is a cloudy-mango-juice look. Aromas of dank stone/tropical fruits like peach, mango, pineapple, papaya with a sweet bready backbone. Taste is a dank, bready, tangerine-mango. As usual, the pillow-soft mouthfeel that is characteristic of HF is here also. Great offering as is all the other "Double" IPAs of Hill Farmstead. Will be eager to lan this mosaic bomb again when it gets re-released!
