Notes: That's right... We brewed our precious mango IPA and hopped it entirely with Mosaic. We couldn't be happier with the results... This beer is outrageous.

Hazy yellow-orange in the glass. Like Sunny Delight.

The nose is mango, berry, and grape, and the taste mostly follows. Mango, white grape, pepper, and pineapple. Lightly dank and bitter. Juicy and soft.

Overall, one of the better Tired Hands IPAs.

9/10

Mosaic MagoTago is arguably the greatest form Mosiac hops can take ..however, this and the Simcoe batches were lacking the mango flavor this time around. certainly a world class a beer either way.

First off many thanks to larryi86 for this treat.
Definitely a fruity IPA. The bittering is lower than average, but that doesn't mean it's not there, just subdued and offering a nice balance to the fruitiness that is MagoTago and mosiac. Cloudy yellow with lots of floaty shit and smallish head ("it's only 3 points, it could have a piece of shit in there and it would still only be 3 points" guess who said that?).
Nothing unpleasant about this beer at all. Interesting array of hop flavors from the mosiac, fruity, earthy, slight herbal and grass, but all done very nicely for an enjoyable experience. Malt is background but firm enough to prevent hop excess.
Slightly low carbonation, but that isn't a problem for me. Nice moderate feel with a smoothness and fullness.
Nice drink. There are definitely a wide range of options in this category (i.e. IPA). I like this one. This is a good brewery.

Growler shared by Michael T. Thanks man!

Mildly hazy yellow body with a quarter inch of soapy, bone white head. Nice mosaic presence. Fruity, mild sweetness. Mango character is there. Light bodied and elegant palate. Tasty!

From 08/23/15 notes. On tap at the TH Fermentaria in Armore, PA.

Pours a slightly hazy straw yellow color with one inch of white head and low carbonation evident. Normal Magotago was darker and cloudier. Mangos, tropical fruits, pine hops, resin, and citrus hop, wheat. Medium body and low carbonation.

Overall I though this was better than the Simcoe "normal" Magotago, but thought neither was as good as the first time I had it B1. A good beer but not great; hoping they change it back.

32 oz growler filled 8/21 poured into a teku

A- A fairly hazy golden straw color with a two finger head.

S- Mango and mosiac hops, just as the name implies, also getting some more tropical fruits from the hops along with citrus and slightly dank.

T- Mango, tropical fruits, slightly dank finish, faint citrus, hint of wheat.

M- Smooth, medium body, nice carbonation.

O- A very well done mango IPA, definitely agree with the amount of hype around this beer. Had this along side regular Mago and the only real difference is the aroma, mosaic is a little fruitier and less dank. Worth picking up if you are int the area.

On tap for the TH Third Anniversary celebration.

Delicious, but not as bursting with fresh mango flavor as expected. More like a very tropical TH IPA, which, of course, is still very good.
