An new seasonal release from Phillips featuring Mosaic hops and has a cool funky label.
.
Pours out a light gold colour with a nice white head that stays around with good lacing.

Smell is of tropical fruit and sweet citrus which mosaic hops are known for.

Taste is of tropical fruit, guava,pineapple, citrus and then a nice bitterness in the the finish. Nice balanced malt presence aswell.

Medium carbonation nice mouthfeel.

This a really good smelling and tasting IPA that is refreshing and balanced even with loads of hops. I'm on my second bottle right now.

A: Nice and pale, a light copper color with great clarity and super tenacious head. Beautiful looking IPA.

S: Very unique and pungent hoppy nose - Mosaic is a very distinct hop. Lemon zest, blueberries, melon rind, a huge vase of Lily's, basil, tangerine, a bit of coconut?

T: My bottle seems slightly metallic but otherwise just a bouquet of lovely Mosaic hops. Berries are prominent.

M: Medium/light bodied with a quick finish. Not particularly bitter. Very nice IPA from Phillips.

Crusty white froth over hay Sunkist orange. 4
Mashed papaya nose with a whack of hop herbal behind it. 4.25
Thin thread of toffee, then herb, light pine, lychee, muskmelon, gooseberry and white currants (if that’s even a thing) hops. 4.25
Lean, citric end, and salty finish.
Lt-med, clean, dry. 4

All the fruit but clean finish. Makes Mosaic play like New Zealand. Phillips are world-beaters with hops when they try. Sweet as. 4.25

650ml bottle.

Appearance- Pours an amber with two fingers of bubbly white head.

Smell- tropical fruits (passion fruit, pineapple), mosaic hops, touch of toffee. Nice tropical aromas.

Taste- Nice punch of mosaic hops (tangerine,guava) and hint of toffee.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Overall- This is my second go at an American IPA brewed with Mosaic hops. Phillips did a good job with this one especially with the aromas.

In hindsight mosiac might be a bit of an undersell...and here's why..

An IPA that looks lagerish in comparsion to the norm...clear, deep amber...did I mention perfectly clear??? lol

Lot's of pine resin, citrus, and hints of fruitiness.

Big old punch of hop up front as one would expect...the twist, which I loved, was in the tropical fruits...mango, papaya, kiwi in a flavour wave that this reviewer was NOT expecting.

An excellent twist on a style that has been there and done that
