i dont know how much this changes year to year, but they used moasic this year, and its sensational. on tap at blue door in the twin cities, a great draft to have. almost amber in color, lots of malt depth to this, with a really tall several inches of white head and great clarity for the style. it smells a touch sweet, but also bitey with fresh mosaic, limes and pine trees come to mind, less tropical than other expressions of it, perhaps because of all the grain. i love the flavor, which starts on the almost acidic citrus side, and moves swiftly though to a more sweet oily honey thing where the wet hops are evident. full bodied too, a little sweet, and with just a hint of pineapple flavor on the very back. really enjoyed this one, although its weird, it didnt warm up all that well. i find that with a lot of wet hopped beers, colder the better within reason. nice carbonation and grain structure. its cool to see they bottle this too, i would love to get my hands on one at some point. indeed is one of the best in the twin cities, and this is another sparkling example of their preeminence!

edit: mosaic again in 2016, but even better than last year! this has a crazy juicy mosaic profile, the real essence of the hop. arguably the best wet hop beer in the state right now!

Big fresh herbal aromas including mint, pine, grass, berry.
It’s a slightly copper tinted brilliant amber beer with a 1” white foam cap with a very slight gold tint.
The fresh Mosaic hops dominate the palate with big mint, grass, pine and vegetal flavors with some melon and orange in the background. Mint and melon are the two big flavors and they provide an interesting mix.
Medium body and carbonation.
