Bottle from the coop. Lots of grapefruit in the aroma, orange gold body with slight wispy head. Citrus hops also dominate the taste, not much of a finish, but all around great session ale.

Has a good golden appearance with plenty of clarity and a 1/2" white head on the top, small bubbles. Mosaics aren't super pungent, they're existent for sure. Citrus funk, oranges left in a trunk.

Light pale malts, more hops, on the strong end of session stuff, the malt seems heavier than a session malt bill. But not overly, just on the strong side of average. Fractional amount of caramel, the hops do impart bitterness but not too much. Like I said, its a stronger than you'd think beer for the words session from the color, hopping and malt alone.

Hazy straw gold color with a medium size white head. Good retention and plenty of lacing on the glass. Moderate aroma of citrus hops. Aroma and flavor pick up as the beer warms. Flavor is pretty robust for a 4.5 abv beer. Nice amount of bitterness and a bit of piney flavor as well as citrus hops. Mouthfeel is light and crisp with a good amount of bitterness. A very tasty session beer.

L: Golden and opaque with some great looking head. Fairly bubbly.

S: Light smelling with delightful hops. Doesn't smell overly bitter or hoppy. A bit floral and citric too.

T: Smooth up front with some floral tones. The tail end is where the hops jump out at you, but its not crazy bitter. They're very citric hops, but its very good. The aftertaste is something special too, again the floral taste. Kind of unusual for an IPA, but I'm not familiar with session IPAs.

F: Very light body and smooth for an IPA. Great drinkability. Not often you find an IPA you can swig, but if you want one this is it.

O: Not too shabby. Working on my IPA game and this one was very good. Stands out for its low ABV and good drinkability.

The Mosaic Session is decEnt....not nearly as good as revolution mosaic hero. The beer poured a clear copper with thin white head that is leaving a lace. The scent is floral. The taste is clean with potpourri. The Mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it's ok.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Bubble show and all, the beer makes a pretty nice entrance, pouring clear and amber beneath a buoyant head of foam; excellent stickage with clumps of lacing clinging

Smell: Juicy Mosaic hops bring tropical fruit and berry tones

Taste: All about the hops, with the malt providing a blank canvas; juicy, at first, with mango, pineapple, tangerine, strawberry and cantaloupe flavors; the bitterness builds through the finish and is a bit too assertive in the aftertaste relative to the fruit flavors

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Just outside of the "Best By" date, the hops on this beer still bring bright and juicy flavors; pretty darn tasty

Poured from a bottle. Clear gold with a white head. Aromas are not huge, pear and some more subtle tropical notes. Pretty light body with noticeable carbonation. Taste starts a little malty with apple and grapefruit flavors and finishes very bitter. The bitterness accompanies the flavors and is a little too overpowering. The bitterness also hangs around for quite a while.

another solid low abv session ale from green flash. along with citra session, they are showing a lot of promise in this subsection of the American ipa. this has almost a fruit punch quality to the hop profile. very tasty.

Just not feeling this one. I love mosaic hops but I do not get any of the mosaic fruitiness in this beer. No tropical smell. I would say a bit of onion smell instead. There is a decent bitterness and bite especially for a session.
