L: A light amber that pours with 2 fingers of tan white head. It lingers for a little bit and leves some nice lacing all the way down the glass.

S: So, so good. Citrus fruits, pineapple, mango, some grapefruit.

T: Follows the nose, but not as intense. Probably not possible. Some pine bitterness on the finish.

F: Moderately carbonated with a medium body. Taste lingers.

O: It's hard to go wrong with mosaic and these guys did quite well. I had more than one.

On tap at Tap and Mallet in Rochester, NY.

This one pours a light amber, with slight orange tinges, a small head, and lots of lacing.

Smells quite typically Mosaic, sweet berry, pineapple, candied grapefruit. The pine bite that made Juice Bomb so nice is absent, though.

This isn't quite as good as regular Juice Bomb for me, but that's probably because Mosaic is not one of my favorite hops, especially when used as 100% of the hop bill as it is here with this beer. It it tasty though, a slight malt backbone, just enough to ground the beer and provide heft, with blueberry, candied grapefruit, candied pineapple. It's pretty sweet with very little bitterness, if any. It's not super balanced because of that.

This is medium bodied, with a good level of carbonation.

Another awesome one from Sloop. Not as good as the regular one, but still nice.

Holy sh*t...this beer is dangerous! 12oz poured on tap at NF Griffon Pub. Absolutely no bitterness; peach, pineapple, white wine all mix together to make this beer pure juiciness; more so than their regular Juice Bomb. Standard look to the beer; not quite cloudy and not transparent. Persistent lacing on the glass. New York breweries are making their own dents into the NE IPA style; so much so that NY IPA (Grimm, Singlecut, Sloop) may very well become the new "it" category. If this ever gets statewide distribution in cans, I know I'm buying as much of it as I can!
