On tap at Armsby Abbey.

L -- Hazy golden orange in the glass with the usual fluffy HF head that lasts and retains wonderfully
S -- Mango sorbet, orange juice, yellow grapefruit zest, lightly creamy oat malt, and a light berry note
T -- Wave of pithy yet creamy citrus pith, citrus flesh, and dried blueberry, followed by a moderate earthy bitterness that is pronounced but rounded. Light malty sweetness makes for a nice tapering finish that continues to be lightly bitter
F -- Soft, fluffy, drinkable
O -- A hair more bitter than my favorite S&S variants. Still fantastic, as expected

From a can purchased at Hill Farmstead. Beer was canned on Tuesday, consumed on Thursday. Beer pours a moderately hazy yellow-gold, big white head of foam, scant lacing. The smell of Mosaic hits upon pouring, with big notes of sweet berry, along with citrus, tropical fruits and a touch of pine. Taste follows. Another immaculate construction. Hill beer is magical.

This was really well done, but perhaps single-hop mosaic is not really my fave. Quite sure it was fresh, but smelled and tasted too much dank for me and slightly cloying. Maybe a bad can? Will retry any 100 if given the chance.

Absolute Mosaic crusher. Mango, pine, and grapefruit on the nose, with a beautiful contrast on the palate of fresh herbs, underripe peach, and bitter citrus. Big and bold, but drinks so easily and finishes with the perfect amount of bitterness.

16oz. can into a Founders snifter.

Hazy color but with a perfect 1 finger rich white head with excellent retention. Nose is pine, grapefruit, starfruit, and pineapple. Fresh, juicy, and grassy all at the same time. Beer opens pineapple, grapefruit, and starfruit. Grassy in the middle with a rounded, juicy body. Soft, pillowy towards the end with more grapefruit and starfruit notes. Bone dry at the finish. Extremely balanced. Body is light with moderate to ample carbonation. Bone dry on the palate and quenching and soft going down with the same, dry finish. Perfectly drinkable.

The flavor is there but the best thing about this beer is the body. Perfection!

L: Hazy, pale straw yellow with a creamy white head and good lacing.

S: Mango and papaya with a touch of pine resin, not over the top but still very aromatic. The malt is subtle but is combines with the yeast to create a subtle fresh baked bread note.

T: Very mellow bitterness, big ripe mango, citrus and pine flavors with a clean malt backbone. The yeast seems to be contributing some fruitiness as well.

F: A dry, moderate body and a crisp, low-carbonated finish.

Overall: An excellent NE-Style IPA that showcases mosaic hops very nicely. This beer is all about hop flavor just as any beer in the style should be.
