A: Pours a lightly hazy yellow orange color with 2 fingers of head that fades down to a thin cap

S: Lots of citrus and tropical fruit up front. Light floral notes. Juice bomb

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with waves of tropical fruit and citrus. Some light floral and herbal notes. Light bitterness. Finishes with lingering tropical fruit

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A juice bomb DIPA that is low on bitterness and high on drinkability. Mosaic-heavy for sure. Check it out

Can. Pours about a 7.9 on the Haze-o-meter™. Big fluffy head at first. It dies off to a dappled layer of thin bubble patches. Shit ton of lacing, though. Aroma jumps out of the can. When the smell just rifles out of the can, you know it's probably going to be pretty decent. Very noticeably Mosaic. Intense notes of melon, mango, weed and greens. Mosaic is a great hop; not my favorite but one of the better ones. So this blast of Mosaic is impressive, but it isn't my favorite shade of hop. But that's being very picky. Flavor is juicy but also quite abrasive. Quite rich; literally started to attract fruit flies. Honey drizzled melon, guava and mango. All of the fruits are collected in a wrapper of pot and herby greens. Alcohol isn't shy. Body is full and the bitterness isn't overly oppressive. It's a big, badass brew. It gets a ton of point s for sheer force of flavor. I also enjoy that it isn't just a creamy-bomb (lol). Doesn't taste or feel like it was mixed with Half n' Half. I find that many of the style are like this. It's surprisingly lean but jacked with aroma and flavor. Impressive but for some reason I'm not in love with it. Maybe focus on Mosaic? Still quite a beer.

Pours a hazy medium golden color, ample foamy head. Fantastic hop aroma - loads of citrus, tropical juice, slight dankness. Very flavorful; loads of citrus: orange, pineapple, grapefruit, nice dose of sweet mango. Fairly sweet and creamy, which I would attribute to a lactose addition, which was not acknowledged. Appropriate carbonation. Overall an extremely flavorful and delicious DIPA, would buy again.

All the deepest, sexiest expressions of Mosaic. Not savoury somehow - proper tropical muck. I don’t know if this is quite up to what their neighbors in Brooklyn at OH are doing with the same hop, but it’s not far off.

Drank from a 1 pint (16 fl. oz.) can purchased at Fort Point Market, Boston, MA
Served in a teku

Cloudy, glowing straw yellow appearance. The nearly opaque body was topped by a small, frothy, bright white crown that quickly fell to a thin collar. Dots of lacing stuck along the glass.

The aroma was a total Mosaic hop bomb. Super dank and weedy. Fresh bud definitely came to mind. Lots of fruity sweetness too. Overripe tropical fruits were apparent. Mango and guava for sure. Bit of tangerine. Hint of pineapple as well. A subtle onion-y character was also detectable.

The flavor profile was also super Mosaic forward and just as spectacular as the nose. Again, potent weed came to mind. Loads of sweet tropical fruitiness on the front end. Overripe mango and guava specifically. The beer was anchored by a stiff but not obtrusive, honey malt backbone. Overripe pineapple came through in the center. Bit of juicy tangerine flesh and pithy tangerine peel on the back end and the finish. More malt sweetness and a hint of bitter citrus rind lingered after the swallow.

Outstanding frothy, fluffy mouthfeel. Medium-full bodied for the style. The liquid contained a super fine, fairly zippy effervescence that fluffed up beautifully on the palate.

Double Something Mosaic is an intensely dank and tropical fruit forward double IPA and one of the best hoppy beers I have tried in recent memory. Fans of the hop varietal should definitely seek this out.
