Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.80%

Notes / Commercial Description:
A beer brewed in the spirit of experimentation and the celebration of our 3rd anniversary… ! What we did here is we took a whole bunch of Mosaic and Amarillo hops, a classic punch of citrus purveying goodness, and added them to the Julius dry hop. The base beer is exactly the same, but the dry hop is altered tremendously. The result is a beer with all the deliciousness of the base beer with a layer of added citrusy complexity. Like devil Julius or something. A real treat!

Tasted from can. Pours a super murky dark orange with white head. Aroma is pineapple, melon, mango, grapefruit, lemon. Big time fruity aroma. Taste is supremely well balanced. Flavors similar to nose with lots of citrus and tropical fruits along with some herbal elements and a little pine. Incredible IPA.

Take note. This is how you use mosaic! This beer is a mosaic showcase it's absolutely amazing. Slightly better then green in my opinion.

Pours merky yellow with a nice two finger white head. Great lacing. Aroma of citra, pineapple juice and orange juice. Taste follows the nose with candied fruit and watermelon. Excellent as always from treehouse. Big fan of them.

Look: Yellow, hazy, with three inch head.

Mouthfeel: Light and creamy.
Overall: More subtle than other treehouse offerings, but an amazing beer.
