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.

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 for...eh 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.

22 oz bomber pours a hazed orange color with a tight-bubbled off-white head. Nice retention and average retention.

Nose is a wonerfully bright citrus aroma. Tropical and lightly malted. Smells really nice.

Taste is freshly crushed grains, bright juicy hops and maybe a touch of biscuits. The yeast is notable with a nutty flavor. Mouthfeel is light and airy with a soft carbonation. Bitterness is not overly biting, but lingers long after. Dang good IPA, I've really been digging on these 4 hands beers my dad brought back from Missouri last week.
