22oz. bottle poured into a tulip. No freshness date.

A: Pours brilliant clear, slight orange tinted gold. Fluffy head, receding to sticky lace. Handsome beer.
S: As advertised, tropical fruit dominant. Primrose pick up pineapple, mango. Sweeter side or IPA aroma spectrum. Very nice.
T: Much sharper on the first sip than anticipated. Slight sting of bitterness, fleeting tropical hop flavors with little malt backbone. Finish is surprisingly astringent. Some grain husk and the very finish. No freshness date, but it just doesn't have the pop that the aroma so greatly anticipated. Hoping it's just been mishandled at some point as I usually like what they're doing over there.
M: super dry, really needs more body.
O: Pretty disappointed honestly. Hate to do it, but just not what it could be.

A- Pours a deep gold in color with a small, 1 finger head. Body is clear and bright. Retention is ok, but the lacing is very good.

S- Mild hops bitterness is overpowering by a hops spiciness and herbal quality. Just hint of light malt flavor is underneath the herbal qualities of this beer's scent.

T- Starts with a spiciness similar to the scent and moves toward a slightly more bitter flavor profile. Hops bitterness picks up in the middle of the drink, but is still mild. Spiciness returns at the end with a little bit of light malt flavors. Hops and herbal qualities linger a little after the drink.

M- The body of this beer is just about as balanced between thick and thin as you can get. Medium to higher levels of carbonation combine with a subdued hop profile to make for a moderately drinkable experience.

Overall, this is a nice, balanced, spicy IPA that may be suffering from some age. I need to this one out fresh to make sure it really an issue of the hops dropping off.

12oz bottle poured into a Unibroue tulip.

A - Pours a clear golden amber, white, crisp head.

S - Slight apricot and that unmistakable "freshwater" aroms of Centennial.

T - Slight dry citrusiness from the front. Somewhere between apricot and grapefruit. The dank, freshwater Centennial gradually overpowers the fruitiness, with a very slight dry bread flavor. The finish is fairly bitter and a bit earthy.

M - Medium-light body, fair amount of carbonation. A bit dry.

O - Solid IPA. Tastes to me like a lesser Two-Hearted, but no complaints about a tired and true Midwest IPA!

Properly aged my friends (1-2mo old).

The beer pours a clear golden amber topped by a foamy inch of white head that fades into a layer of thin fluff. The nose is still the same sweet, grapefruit/tropical fruits, grass, green tea & alcohol I remember layered with more undertones of wet cardboard. Nothing too potent or magical, but like I's properly aged. The taste is certainly as expected, distinct mosaic upfront that fades into light sugar and some citrus rind bitterness. I would not describe this as sweet or juicy AIPA, but it definitely has enough sweetness and body based on my expectations. It's mild-medium bodied, a bit watery, has adequate carb, reserved sucrose - little maltiness, a building citrus-rind bitterness, semi-dry finish, and masked alcohol. Overall not a bad IPA and one I remember having more pop when it was fresh. However, I'm never a fan of citrus-rind mouthfeels that don't have the aromatics or sweetness to back it up.

22oz bottle with no date, poured into tulip. Mostly clear orange-yellow with a HUGE fluffy, dense white head that came up from even a careful pour.
Smells disappointingly normal for a IPA with Mosaic hops, but still promising...mostly pine and citrus, nice bitterness. Not really a hint of the fruit bomb that Mosaic is known well. I did just drink a Hop Ranch, so maybe I'm jaded.
Taste follows nose; biscuity malt with citrus and pine. Pretty standard.
Mouthfeel is light and clean, wet clean finish.
Overall, I'm a bit disappointed. I was very excited to read that Mosaic hops were in this one but the taste didn't deliver. It didn't have a freshness date, so maybe it's old. Eh well.
