Pours a hazy pale yellow(if you pour the last of the can in). Smell is tropical, pineapple, papaya, and mango. Taste of tropical fruit, a little grassiness, and cracker malt. Feel is on the lighter side. Probably the best session IPA I've had to date.

16 oz can poured into spiegelau iPad glass canned on 2/10

A: Was a nice clear yellow bright gold color until I finished the pour and the last bit made it cloudy. Very little head but it was stark white.

S: Lots of grapefruit, and pineapple, smells a lot like juice, a little mango and papaya.

T: An explosion of juicy fruit pineapple, mango, apricot, grapefruit very light malt backbone.

M: Medium bodied fairly high carbonation. I would have expected this to be thinner for 4%.

O: Huge juicy hops with a nice crisp bite to the finish beer finishes clean but not watery. This is probably one of the best session IPAs I gave ever had.

Canned 2/10/17.
L - foamy white head that leaves some sporadic globs of lacing. very pale, opaque.
S - Super tropical . Pineapple, citrus, papaya.
T - light flavor but juicy. citrus and mango upfront with a bit of herbal bitterness on the finish.
F - Light body, good carbonation.
O - I am very impressed. Although not the best value going by the low abv, I'd say this is still worth it for those that want a session that packs great flavor. Bonus because I can get it so fresh.

I usually don't bother with these session type ipas, but the allure of the mosaic hop was to much for me to resist picking up a single can. I feel like a broken record when reviewing session ipas, nice hop flavor (particularly so with this one), but no backbone and thin watery feel. Hop water. No thanks. Glad I only picked up a single. There are much better "session" or lighter options. Love Burial, hate the style.

16oz tallboy can, sample from the brewery.

Nearly clear pale yellow hue, great looking head and lacing. Fresh orangey nose from the hops, a bit of spice as well with a cracker maltiness. Light and grassy, crisp and citrusy. Lots of flavor for a session ale. Maltiness has just enough body and the hop bitterness is enough to keep it an IPA. Just absolutely crushable.

Solid. That is probably the best word to describe this beer. It was nothing to write home about, but I really don't have any major complaints. It was hoppy and crisp.

A: Pours a very lightly hazy pale yellow in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and moderate lemon yellow highlights. The beer has a finger tall foamy white head that reduces to a large patch of thin film covering the entire surface of the beer with a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of tropical/mango, herbal, and dank resinous hops over light aromas of slightly sweet grainy malts.

T: Upfront there is a light to moderate flavor of slightly sweet grainy malts. That is followed by slightly stronger than moderate flavors of tropical/mango, herbal, citrus/grapefruit pith, and dank resinous hops which impart a moderate amount of bitterness which does not linger for too long.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly crisp.

O: Very enjoyable - super easy to drink with well hidden alcohol and really nice hop flavors + aromas. Definitely one that I could easily have a couple of and I would definitely enjoy again.
