STBC's Single Malt And Single Hop Double IPA features one variety of hop: big, juicy Mosaic Hops and one type of malt: Special Pale Malt. It's amazing how complex the flavor of just one type of hop and one type of malt can be...

Pours copper orange. Smells sweet and hoppy. Very complex. Sweet malt body with a medium bitter finish. Well balanced. Excellent.

64oz growler. Poured out a clear, golden amber color with a small, tan head of foam. It smelled of roast malt, toffee and piney hops. Very malty tasting with toffee and a subtle piney hop bite.

I was pleasantly surprised by this one.

Pours a clear, light honey with heavy foam that dissapates relatively quickly and leaves a nice lacing on the glass.

Smell: notes of citrus, apricot, papaya, guava, and pine
Taste: juicy, citrus, apricot, slightly tropical, with a nice long, bitter, piney finish that lingers on the palate... almost earthy in nature, which balances the fruits nicely. Malt is not very noticeable at all, and gives ever just the right amount of sweetness to balance. Also, while heavier on the alcohol, it’s not that noticeable in the beer, which is surprising.
Feel: good carbonation, but not overwhelming, fairly smooth, juicy, and very drinkable.

I was pleasantly surprised by this beer. The mosaic hops are very noticeable, but have a complexity all their own and give a nice character to this beer. Definitely worth a try. I will probably pick up another pack again as I did enjoy this one.
