i think its so awesome that these guys have made so many pale ales and ipa types, and keep experimenting and playing with different hop combinations. i liked just about all of them that i had, and each is quite distinctive from the next, even though the base beers appear to be nearly identical. this one features ella and mosaic. i have been increasingly intrigued by ella, and was hoping this would continue to teach me about it, but to me, in both aroma and flavor, the more familiar and assertive mosaic seems to win out, take over a little bit, and maybe cover up a bit of the ella nuance i was hoping would be more apparent in that. that said, its delicious, simple, and fresh. the now common pineapple from the can and sweet citrus of the mosaic really is forward in the nose, while most of the hops come on a little later in the flavor. there is something else there, but to say that i can pick out ella blind would be a big stretch, its floral and delicate, a little white grapey and sort like a geranium thing, maybe lemongrass too, but its hard to keep my palate focused on it, as the mosaic seems to keep ramping up. delicate grain body, dry and cerealy, but minimalist, crisp carbonation, and just a little linger on the finish without very much bitterness at all. a nice drinker, very light.
