Pours a beautiful orange-peach color with an effervescent white head.

Tons of tropical fruit on the nose - mango and pineapple, a little rind, and also some kiwi and blueberry. Definite

Taste follows the aroma closely, very nice fruitiness. The dank bitterness from the aroma adds a pine note and ensures the beer isn't just a sweet fruitbomb. The first couple cans I had definitely had a very grassy, very earthy flavor to them, but a couple weeks has seen the beer mellow into a more developed offering.

Medium feel, but somehow feels quite light on the tongue with a little zip to it. Nice carbonation.

Really great single hop offering -- one of the best Mosaic-focused ones I've had. Very easy drinking, but the 7.2% ABV would make this an easy "how did I get this drunk?" contender. Very much looking forward to the next time it is released.

The aroma out of the can is unreal, poured into a Teku, the smell filled the room in a good way. Canned 8/15, drank 8/15, my favorite of the 5 different Other Half cans I've had, a joy to drink

On tap at Other Half Brewing in Brooklyn, NY.

This one pours a slightly darkish orange-amber, with a small head, and a lot of lacing.

Smells like blueberry, grapefruit, heavy duty herbal and bitterness, and just a hint of malt.

It tastes basically the same. I'd put it behind Galaxy and Citra, but it's still really nice. It's very fruity and sweet, almost like a fruity pebbles flavor. There's a good earthiness and bitterness here. This is really hard edged, definitely drinkable but volatile.

It has a biting but crisp mouthfeel, with a good level of carbonation.

A great example of OH's dank af hop weapons. Cool stuff.

Smells great, but for me the taste sort of falls kind of flat.

Picked up cans a few hours ago, enjoyed from an OH snifter.

a - Brew poured a cloudy almost neon gold, classic frothy IPA head, spotty lace.

s - Nose is a rich and lush sweaty dank mosaic.thick and layered in overripe orange with some phenolic booze and bitterness on the backend of the scent.

t/m/o - Taste is thick lush mosaic. Sweaty and dank with light bitterness. Really fresh and overripe tasting...almost dripping hops if that makes sense. Drinakability is through the roof. Hard to not take big gulps of this one. Other half continues to impress. These single hops series have all been phenomenal, there is no clear best in these series and they are all amazing. The best? Whichever one is in my glass. Hoping that these can releases become a regular thing.

serving: growler

Near perfect single hop mosaic offering, which is my favorite hop variety
The only thing stopping me from the 5 was that it didn't quite nail the HF chewy mouthfeel that has become my barometer for the perfect IPA feel...with that exception, pretty much perfect

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Appearance: Gold with light orange

Aroma: The fruity and floral aroma of Mosaic hops.

Taste: A mosaic hop lovers dream. Tropical, fruity, a little piney,

Mouthfeel: Medium Light, though lingers in the mouth a little bit.

Overall: One of the best Mosaic hoped beers I have ever had. And one of my top 5 OH beers.
