22oz bottle from Whole Foods in Hillcrest, no bottle date I can find. More yellow than orange color, good head. Aroma is hoppy, good but not notable. Flavor definitely has Mosaic and the bottle refers to a "cracker like body" that is about spot on describing the malt. Good beer but not a repeat purchase.

Mosaic bomb. Very good ipa, probably falling just short of world class. One of the better mosaic forward ipas ive had, but not quite as good as St Archers for example... I guess the best way I can label this beer; a mosaic ipa well above average.

Taste is awesome. Mouthfeel leaves a little to be desired. Pair with smoked chicken or spicy mango fish tacos

Consumed on tap at Modern Times in North Park...

The color is a deep and pale yellow orange. The aroma is very tropical/fruity. Not a very "hop forward" scent, but you can smell the hops in there. The taste is just like the aroma, tropical/fruity, with a "biscuity" aspect to it like others have said. Goes down very very easy for 7.2% Medium carbonation light mouthfeel.

Personally, I prefer those "hop forward" beers and my standard in stone IPA. This isn't really a hop forward IPA style, but still very good and makes me want to try other beers Modern Times offers. Overall 4.25/5

22oz bottle - wow, the marketing stiff for this brewery sure knows how to be florid in their hop-praising prose.

This beer pours a slightly hazy, medium golden yellow colour, with three fingers of puffy, loosely foamy, and bubbly off-white head, which leaves some scattered sudsy islet lace around the glass as it lazily subsides.

It smells of dank pine resin, wet scallions, muddled domestic citrus rind, a bit of mango, guava, and pineapple tropical fruit notes, some hard water flintiness, and a plain bready and crackery pale malt character. The taste is bready and doughy caramel malt, a mixed citrus and exotic fruitiness, damp chalk, a subtle raw onion astringency, and more leafy, herbal, and dank pine resinous and verdant hoppiness.

The carbonation is fairly meek in its tepid frothiness, the body a solid enough middleweight, and generally smooth, with a nice airy creaminess sidling in as things warm up a tad around here. It finishes trending dry, the hops holding tight, while the malt verily bails, in an apparent attempt to re-up and re-energize.

Overall, this is another decent hop-forward brew from this So-Cal operation, with a nice display of what the Mosaic (and unspecified friends?) varietal can do for you. Good and hoppy, as just mentioned, but also balanced, in the sense that no one essence runs roughshod over one's palate. Great stuff.

Solid IPA. Bottled 7/21. Six weeks old. Juicy oranges, mango & tangerine. Mosaic with a prickly bite in the finish as mosaic brews seem to do. There's a firm mustiness throughout, which is why I'm assuming they label this a "Dank" Mosaic IPA on the label. I associate resinous with the word Dank, or reminiscent of marijuana with the word Dank. This is like musty basement all along with the citrus & pine. In a good way though. Glad I bought this Bomber. Not too bad at $6.99.

22 oz bottle poured into Spiegelau glass

A: very clear body with looks like a good bit of carbonation body is a very pale yellow light white soapy head

S: nice mango and apricot smell with a little lemon.

T: nice light mango peach apricot and light pineapple with slight bit of sweetness and a spicy bready finish.

M: light to a touch medium the carbonation is very lively but it still feels fairly light on the tongue with a little cling on the end.

O: Very solid beer. Is it Earth shattering? No, but it is damn good nice blast of mosaic hops light dry fruitiness.

650 mL bottle. Hazy orange body. Smells of citrus and garlic. Sweet pale malt. Tastes much the same. Sweet pale malt. Garlic, grapefruit, and orange. Medium body. Tasty, but had this next to Dymaxion and it didn’t hold a candle.

On tap @ Lomaland, this is Fruity Pebbles out of the gate, produce-aisle high fruitiness, sort of vaguely tropical, I suppose, but mostly just, well, fruity, with some offputting yeastiness as well. Not surprised MT finally hopped on board the hazy beer gravy train, but not sure the effect is as pronounced as its East Coast counterparts, no real sense of that saturatedness you get from TH/Trillium/etc, it still seems all contained in the nose/dry hop, nor is there the purported apricot/peach ester thing. Without that, this is actually a fairly boring beer, no clean bitterness to satisfy, just a yeasty astringency, no saturated juiciness as promised. Really leaves you wanting.
