A: Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a bone white head. Some nice lace streaks down the glass.

S: Kind of a musty attic hop smell, if that makes sense. There are some tropical and citrus hop notes here, mainly passion fruit, pineapple and kiwi, but there's the musty malt blanket covering it.

T: Has some light grapefruit, tangerine and light floral hops. There's a pretty deep earthy malt backbone, with some spicy rye- like notes. Finish has some pine hop resin. It's alright. So far, I just don't know if Mosaic hops are for me.

Canned date of 12/19/16

Appearance - Pours clear and golden orange in color with an off-white. finger width head. Fair retention, resulting in a thin, broken layer of suds and a ring around the edge of the glass. Not much for lacing aside from a few random spots.

Smell - Equal balance of hop and malt on the nose, comprising orange, toasted bread, caramel, floral notes, pine and a bit of spice.

Taste - Citrusy, spicy and floral upfront, then a big punch of toasted bread and lesser caramel pushes forward to deliver a mostly balanced finish. Aftertaste lingers with spice, hints of caramel sweetness and pith bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. Slick, easy drinker with a semi-dry finish.

Overall - Not the punchiest IPA out there, but I really dig the balance and flavor profile that this delivers. If it had just a bit more hop bite, it'd be killer.

Great tasting IPA. Smooth and relaxing. I recommend this beer for most IPA drinkers. If you like a nice tasting, not too bitter beer give it a try. Nice color, nice smell, good taste but it's a little murky.

Got this from my friend @csp0380.
A - Pours a clear golden orange with 1 finger of head.
S - Aroma is mango, grapefruit and piney.
T - Mango is the flavor on the front end. The bitterness at the finish is a lot of grapefruit zest.
M - Medium mouth feel and carbonation.
O - A good, solid IPA.

If you love Fresh Squeezed IPA from Deschutes Brewery then you will love this one too. A bit lighter in color (I prefer lighter colored IPAs - reminds me of the Pliny malts) and a little creamier than Fresh Squeezed. A really easy drinking IPA. A must try if you love Mosaic hops. I got this in a can - poured great - not missing the bottle at all.

Pours a finger of head on a clear straw body.
The aroma is danky citrus.
The taste is clean with a quick bitter followed by a honey sweet and some spice. Nice.
The texture is crisp.
Enjoyable.
