On Tap at O’Brien’s Pub – Kearny Mesa
Full pint – 12/11/2014

A: Lightly burnished straw gold with a lively effervescent look as the overzealous pour spills that creamy white froth out of the glass. Nice retention efforts with some broken tracks of lace left behind as the head settles.

S: The nose is an aromatic onslaught of fresh grapefruit zest, melon, tropical passion fruit, mango and gooseberry. I get a little bready cracker underneath but there is virtually no malt presence otherwise. Really fresh and pungent with a great tropical fruit blend.

T: Flavor is a pure hop delivery of grapefruit flesh, green melon, citrus zest, mango, pine, and a soft dankness in the finish. Not quite as vibrant as the nose but still very nice. Malt is negligible with just a dash of cracker likeness standing in. Moderate high bitterness thrusts into a dry lingering finish. Has a resinous trailer of some more dirty herbals on the palate. Great balance to this and extremely crushable.

M: Very moderate to light in body with a nice spritzy feel on the palate. Good tug of hop bitterness and a dry resinous finish.

D: Finally my first Council brew and what a solid IPA. Really great tropical Mosaic flavor and superb drinkability. Looking forward to trying more from these guys.
