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.
