L: Had on tap at Sound Brewery. Body is clear amber with a thin white ring around the glass.

S: The nose consists of peach, tropical flora, mango, and apricot.

T: Same as the nose. Bitterness is mild, and there seems to be some biscuits with honey.

F: Light bodied with high carbonation.

Drank at Barley Brothers in Winnipeg. Pale yellow. Nice fruity nose. Outstandingly simple yet delicious body. Ready biscuity malt profile with a ton of hop flavour going here. Full of tropical fruits. A fruit salad. Nice light bitterness in the background. A glorious beer. Best of the night!

11/2/2014. On draft at Chuck's Greenwood. Golden red colored (like iced tea), clear, thin white head, decent amount of lace. Aroma is of tropical fruits, especially guava, backed up by some roasted malt. Fairly sweet, then a bitter finish with a little acidity. Well-carbonated, medium body, long finish.

1L howler from Keg 'n Cork - a hell of a better deal than the various expensive 'pints' of this floating around town.

This beer pours a slightly hazy, medium copper amber hue, with four flabby fingers (alliteration FTW!) of puffy, rocky, and pleasantly bubbly ecru head, which leaves a decent array of layered wispy smoke lace around the glass as it slowly recedes.

It smells of crisp biscuity and bready pale malt, a softer caramel/toffee sweetness, mild citrus rind, a more assertive piney/leafy bitterness, and a sort of chalky, flinty dryness. The taste is a tad more hoppy up front - orange cream and pine needle essences, mostly, crackery, semi-sweet caramel and pale malt, the same flinty sandstone character from the nose, and further leafy, herbal, and somewhat perfumed hops.

The carbonation is definitely active in a playfully frothy and more taciturn supportive manner (the best of both worlds), the body a generally solid medium weight, and plainly smooth, those loitering hops more or less refusing to get off of the damned lawn! It finishes off-dry, the inherent biscuity caramel malt starting to think about calling the authorities on those lingering and meddling hops.

An enjoyable and agreeably hoppy APA, given that all that particular goodness comes solely from the currently trending Mosaic varietal - not the first rodeo at which this hop has garnered full buckle awards (in my mind). Tasty, easy to drink, and nowhere near IPA territory, in a very good way. Worth seeking out, in small and large doses alike - now excuse me while I go and kill the latter.

A: Poured a nice and clear orangishpeach color with good carbonation leaving a moderate white head and some decent lacing. Head retention is pretty good on this.

S: I picked up a big whiff of passion fruits, some caramel and light graininess.

T: Initial punch of some melons and passion fruits. A little sweetness, some light caramel backing. The finish is somewhat clean, a little oil and graininess on the back. Not much on bittering here.

M: Light-medium body, well carbonated, juicy sweet.

O: Not to shabby. I really enjoyed the mosaic hop bill.

I believe this is a single-hop brew featuring Mosaic hops, please corrcet if not accurate. Served in straight pint glass. Poured a clean, clear coppery gold color with about 1/2 inch of off-white head that low retention and medium lacing.

The aroma had some caramel sweetness and noticeable pine and floral hop notes. The taste was very similar, but had the addition of a bit of a citrus kick at the back.

The body was a bit fuller than medium, just slightly rough enough not quite call it smooth, and had a tart hop bite on the finish. Drinkability was good, you could probably have a couple of these at a sitting. Overall, a pretty nice little brew, worth a shot if you see it.
