Growler purchased at Brew Gentlemen in Braddock, PA.

This one pours a quite hazy bright yellow, with a small head, and lots of lacing.

I don't really love Mosaic, but this is still really nice. This smells like blueberry candy, candied grapefruit, orange, fruit loops, and weed.

This is one of the rare exceptions in which I really enjoy Mosai hops. It's definitely got that Mosaic-driven sweetness, like blueberry and the juice at the bottom of a fruit cup, with grapefruit and orange. There's not much malt character, and a slightly weedy bitterness.

This is light bodied, crisp and fairly clean, with a good level of carbonation.

i continue to be massively impressed with this brewery. They got me to like a hop I rarely enjoy.

A - Hazy, nearly opaque orange body, milky, with a moderate light, almost white head, and extensive lacing.

S - Front of fruit, tropical, with a moderately strong cracker note, and a pithy pine undercurrent.

T - Fruit, mostly mango and passionfruit, a hint of guava, orange juice, and a mildly bitter bite in the close, hinting pith.

M - Soft and lush, with a quickly fading close that is not at all dry but clean.

O - This is an excellent beer, delicious, offering a very nice take on the NE IPA.

Pours cloudy gold. All citrus on the nose, tropical fruit, tang. Taste is all juice with some citrus rind bitterness at the end. Texture is smooth and soft, very quenching. Great beer!

really tasty double from these guys, seemingly mostly if not entirely mosaic driven, i liked it a lot, but not as much as their base ipa, which is one of the best of these hazy east coast styles i have had in awhile. thicker than the ipa, denser, but still with a smooth uniform haze without any visible particulate in here. awesome aroma from the hops, juicy and more sweet than bitter by a mile. pineapple and lime, even mango to this, really fruity, a little better in the aroma and the flavor for me, the malt picks up midway in the flavor, and it starts to interfere a little bit. still the hops dominate, it just ends up a little unresolved i think, like it needs a higher IBU count or something, it lingers long, and while oily and hoppy, is also thick and sweet. there is a bit of booze sting here, not harsh at all, but really pretty evidently strong. less carbonation than the regular ipa too, but in a beer like this i dont really mind. impressive overall flavor profile, but this one seems less unique and perfected than their ipa, and represents more of the bandwagon type of hazy ipa, it didnt wow me the way the regular one did, but still, this is as good as any of the ones people are freaking out about...

Hazy colored north east style DIPA. Big juicy fruit flavors , such as grapefruit and pineapples, Low bitterness, tons of tropical aromas, absolutely delicious !

Hazy lemon with white foam. Sweet fruity hoppy aroma. Complex sweet and bitter hop taste that is layered. Sophisticated DIPA and a pleasure to drink.

L: yellow hazy with 1" head. Good retention.
S:Dank... yes, there is the tropical fruit smells but I was struck by the "skunk" element of the hop aroma.
T: some light fruitiness upfront, dank taste follows.
F: thick, chewy
O: this DIPA reminds me of a wellcrfat APA from other brewers. A sharpness to the taste gives it character outside the NE IPAs that are in vouge. Like all of BG's hop froward offering, a home run.
