12oz bottle. Appearance: Clear golden with a thick white head and nice lacing. Aroma: Pineapple, citrus, pine resin. A dank hop undertone. Taste: Light maltiness, crackery and bready. Strong herbal and spicy hop flavors, with some citrus and grassy resin. Mouthfeel: Medium body and moderate carbonation. Finish: Well balanced, leaning slightly on the bitter side with some lingering grass and tropical fruit. Overall: A really good APA. Well balanced with a variety of hop flavors and aromas, none of which overpower the rest of the beer

Had this on tap, on vacation in upstate New York.... Had a hard time finding craft beers I enjoyed (from Chicago and I have so many amazing choices everywhere I go).... However this one nailed it.... Absolutely AMAZING, way underrated here on BA.

This is very similar to the Other Half Mosaic IMO. Murky straw color about a finger of head and tremendous lacing throughout. There is a lot of orange characteristic in the flavor and aroma of this beer. Also a bit of lemon and biscuit. Truly a great APA.

I really like this. Citrusy hops and a light malt bill make this akin to cold lemonade on a hot summer day. It has enough bitterness to have a short but enjoyable aftertaste and at such a low abv is crushable.

Pours a slightly hazy light orange golden color with off-white head. Citrus fruits and light malts on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied, a little depth. Finishes with citrus and bread.

Look: Hazy golden yellow with a BIG fully, white head. A very good looking beer!

Smell: Orange citrus with bitter hops.

Taste: Orange citrus with bitter hops. Exactly as the aromas say it is, is how it tastes.

Feel: Very smooth, but crisp. Creamy, but refreshing
