look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Packaged on 1/11/2019, consumed on 2/24/2019. Poured from a tall-boy into my Bruery tulip.

Turbid golden poppy body capped with a half finer of manolia soft peaks. Sticky tendrils of variegated lace; excellent retention.

Orange, kumquat, lime, tangelo, guava, and mango in the nose - all fruit with a hint of spice further down.

Bright, juicy palate entry, accompanied by notes of unripe pear, straw, melon candy, and faintly biscuity malt. Mild bitterness throuhout. Finishes fairly dry with lingering citrus and pineapple. Faint minerality with hints of Pinot Grigio at times as well.

Silky, medium-light body, alcohol present but not too hot. Decent carbonation.

Good if somewhat generic NE style IPA, more "juice" forward (hints of Tang) than some examples I've had.

Cloudy orange, white foam.

Grain.

Dialed back OJ -- more of a Pale Ale. Works as a lawn chair beer for me. Not getting the usual from Mosaic, maybe bc it's an older can though.

Carbonation might be a tad aggressive.
