22oz bottle
Hazed apricot colored ale with a rocky off-white head that slowly dissipates. Mosaic hop nose with a tropical forefront of pineapple, passion fruit, and lemon-lime. Zesty and somewhat tart flavors with notes of passion fruit, mango, pineapple, and lemon-lime with a mild malt presence. Fuller body, moderate carbonation, alcohol sneaks up on you; finishes bittersweet. Overall, solid one hop DIPA. A must try for Mosaic hop lovers.

All Mosaic... nose is tropical while the taste has some nice bubblegum notes that I usually only get from the regular Tree House IPAs. Solid all over.
