Uno, on tap.

Lk: super pulpy dark yellow. Think pear juice (per djoos?). Small head, poor retention.

Aroma: fantastic citrus and tropical fruit, grass, palm, coconut?,

TASTE: a step behind the magnificence of the aroma. Grapefruit, blood orange, metallic, grass, peat. Mosaic always come off funny for me at first, but I grow into it throughout the first 5-6 ounces. The sour and metallics become more palatable as you go. I also start to get more mineral and earthy notes.
Feel: poor carbonation, but certain aspects of this beer ( and other mosaics I've had) give a tingly mouthfeel that kind of has a similar effect. Easy drinking, though not completely light...the is quite the pulpy thickness.

Not as good as the Waimea punch I tried earlier this year, but very good even by lofty Kane standards.

Happy New Year.
This years version is overly grassy and dry with a ton of sediment. Finish is sandy and cloying.

Drinking on tap at the facility right now. Beautiful pour with a great head. Great smell. Mosaic hop bomb! If this was from New England it would be top 250. Easily.

Sample at Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen 2018, Red Session. Aroma is sweet and fruity with dextrin malt notes and slightly sweaty and dank hops. Taste has sweet vanilla notes and juicy hops with medium bitterness.

Pours hazy orange with a pillowy head.

The nose is onion/chive and mango, and the taste largely follows. Better as it warms. Mango, orange, and light dankness. Medium mouthfeel. Very good.

16 oz. can dated 4/28/18 purchased at brewery and poured into Belgian ale glass.

Man, I love me some Mosaic.

L: Very hazy orange with 2F+ head. OK retention, not much lacing, thin cap and ring.

S: Orange, grapefruit, lemon-lime and lots of tropical fruit.

T: SUPERTASTEEXPLOSION with grapefruit and lemon-lime leading the way, but lots of peach and stone fruits coming on. Slightly sour/bitter/astringent finish (you choose, tough call for me).

F: Light to medium body, moderate to aggressive carbonation. Superrefreshing and drinkable. Construction and balance are solid.

O: Whee this is great. If they make Galaxy Punch I'm gonna buy ALL THE BEER.

Pours a very dense, hazy orange juice color. I have never seen a beer with this lever of haze / turbidity. It seems to glow. Nose is very, very faint grapefruit. Very flavorful for 6.6% abv. Lots of citrus flavors here - grapefruit, pineapple, lemon, subtle peach and mango. Excellent carbonation lens to a creamy mouth feel. Overall this beer is a very flavorful IPA, could easily drink a few of these in one session, but for $20 a 4-pack this is a bit on the expensive side, yet I continue to buy more and more...

I prefer Finbackā€™s Fat Mango to this if I had to choose between the two.

Enjoyed on-tap at the brewery on 10/7/17. Review copied from notes. Poured into an 8oz glass, Mosaic Punch is a turbid orange color with a fluffy white head. Juicy tropical hop aromas of pineapple and grapefruit. Beautifully complex hop profile, the mosaic hop truly proves its name by giving up notes of peach, mango and orange. Slightly dry finish. What a delightful beer. Kane just keeps getting better and better.

I had this on draught at a restaurant. 16 oz. pour served in a shaker glass. It pours a turbid, brown-gold color with a finger of fluffy, bright white head and lacing that coated the glass for the entire pour. It's a tropical fruit bomb with fragrant mango, pineapple, lemon, grapefruit, pine needles, and light floral hops. The taste is out of this world! It opens with lemon peel and sweet pineapple, mango, and a hint of vanilla, then closes with dank Mosaic, Citra, and Galaxy hops, and lightly-astringent pepper. Every flavor is unique but they blend seamlessly. The mouth feel is equally impressive: silky and creamy with pleasant carbonation. The 6.6% ABV seems just right: it provides substance without being distracting. Overall, this ale is a tour de force. It's hard to imagine how to improve it.

Bright hazy yellow. A little bit of head lingers throughout. Huge nose on this. Massive tropical fruit. Taste follows suit. Berries in there as well. A bit of bitterness. Feel is right where it should be. A nice chew. My only complaint is that this beer just completely falls off on the back end. I guess that could be seen as a good thing. Makes you go back for more. But I just wish it had a bit more on the finish to round it out a bit better. But this is really great stuff.
