Pour looks like most HF IPA's, hazed bright yellow with small amount of tight white head. Nose is hop forward with faint malt balance and a hint of grain. Hops are tropical, grapefruit and mango with a touch of pine and herbal hops. Taste is more tropical fruit forward. Bright hops, mango and pear with a faint touch of herbal grassy hop through the finish. Bitterness is very light, mild carbonation with a medium to light body and juicy feel.

Massive thanks to cfrances33 for sending this one my way! Split with mnphish and icecoldphatty:

Pours a very hazy honey gold with a soapy finger of paper white foam. Great lacing, lively beading.

Very, very tropical on the nose... mango and pineapple. Dense, lush, bittersweet.

The palate is defined by a big abrasive bitterness. It's more abstract in its expression of the mosaic hop than the nose, there's peach and pineapple. It feels nice and wet, slick, thirst quenching.

I like it. I'd like to become more acquainted with mosaic and I think this is a good start. Thanks Colin!
