On tap at the brewery. Mostly clear orange. Smells of orange, grapefruit, hefty garlic, and a little pale malt. Tastes of garlic all over. Grainy malt and grapefruit back end, but also more garlic. Medium body. Excellent mosaic IPA.

Crowler into a snifter appears copper in color with a soapy white cap a finger strong that fades leaving patchy lace.

Aroma is pine and fruits somewhat tropical in the nose almost like pineapple and mango.

Taste has subtle fruity hop flavors quite herbal with its bitterness and lasting dusty grain with minimal sweetness.

Light in body with modest carbonation. Pretty decent stuff, I had zero issue slamming down this 32oz and could have easily drank more if it was available. Good stuff.

Poured on tap at the brewpub, the beer is a hazy, golden-orange coloring, with a filmy, foamy, white head. Nose of orange, grapefruit, tangerine, and subtle berry sweetness, with dried grass and a cracker backbone. Flavors are smooth and sweet forward, with a bolt of toasted caramel followed immediately by grapefruit, lemon, and tangerine, with a subtle acidic and astringent end character. Smooth and full bodied, with a citrus blend in the aftertaste. Slick, dry, astringent finish. Great beer.
