Tall can, I can find no canning date info

Pours heavily hazed, typical NE IPA look, but not overly turbid..frothy cap, lasting and then leaves nice looking sheets of scattered fine lacing.

Ripe pineapple and fruity goodness on the nose. Mosaic hops in da house. Tropical in place, grapefruit, melon, lime, oranges...grainy/resiny hop presence in the finish...minty and refreshing as well...complimented some spicy cheese and salad quite nicely....quite worthy, go trade for some


This is truly delicious...fresh and flavorful, tropical,

Mosaic really sticks out. Dank but juicy. Nice.

It pours a slightly hazy yellow with a huge head. The aroma is slightly dank and fruity. The taste is well balanced and with a prolonged bitterness. Fruity and with a nice dank aftertaste. Medium body.

Can Date: 2/24/17
Palate Contaminants: none

Appearance is like a thick white grapefruit juice. Not much head or lacing.

Smell up front is malt and pineapple. (I'll go for it: King's Hawaiian rolls.) Puffed sugar sweetness, but it's not overbearing. Slightly lactic, and not bitter at all.

The taste is surprisingly crisp. It's mostly the white grapefruit, and little bitterness does finally show up. I can pick out a few more things (grape leaves and barley), but it's much less complex than the nose suggests. It's fair to say there's some cantaloupe, too.

Not only is the taste crisp, it's pretty smooth, as well. The barley flavor is the taste that hangs around. Not a whole lot of carbonation, but it's well integrated. It's thin for the type, but that doesn't come across as detrimental.

A: It appears bright yellow orange, opaque, with a splotchy and frothy white head. Looks like fresh squeezed orange juice. A ring of foam persists around the glass, and laces like little islands all over.

A: The aroma alone makes me renounce my previous statement of my favorite hops, as this Mosaic smells amazing. So much friggin mango and papaya makes you feel you're breathing in a tropical islands fresh harvest.

T: The flavor follows. Mango and papaya to the core. A hint of perfuminess in the aftertaste. All I can think about is how well this would go with some luau pork tacos! Definitely detected a bit of pineapple shine through as it warms as well as some buttery finish.

F: Smooth, mild carbonation, a bit prickly and frothy on the tongue and throat.

O: This may be my favorite NE juice bomb style IPA's I've had. I can't think of anything to complain about, or much to improve on. Cheers!

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

Look: Pours a slightly hazy straw color with a minimal white head appearing and dissipating.

Smell: Dank tank. Tons of earthiness, some weedy elements, papaya, and some berry notes too.

Taste: The blueberry/papaya hits up front with some of that dank flavor hitting, working its way to a grainy malt. Nice stuff.

Feel: slightly juicy, and lacking bitterness, the feel on this beer is decent, but also a bit thin for the east coast IPA style.

Overall: The aroma and taste on this is exceptional, but the thin body leaves more to be desired. The finish on the flavor also is a bit malty. Overall, a solid beer, and papaya bomb.
