A 16 fl. oz. can with no canned on or best before date. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.

Appearance: A lightly hazy golden orange colour with a big three finger white head that had great retention and left lots of nice lacing.

Aroma: Orange, grapefruit peel, biscuit, light caramel, pine, pineapple, mango and blueberries.

Taste: Moderate sweetness, biscuit, honey, papaya, pineapple, light bitterness, mandarin peel and rind, and grass.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Overall: It’s nice, but perhaps too sweet a Double IPA for me to fully enjoy.

Hazy gold colour, beautiful white head

Smell is great and very tropical, some citrus, the malt profile is noticeable

The taste follows, nice

The mouthfeel is amazing, so juicy...

Slightly hazy golden color with off-white head. Aroma has herbal hop notes, orange rind and a light astringent fermented fruit note. Taste has oranges, tea notes, leafy hops, medium herbal bitterness on the aftertaste. Medium minus body and carbonation.

Pours a fairly clear orange, with soft, thick foam.

Smell is fruity, with notes of peach, apricot and lemon with a hint of sweetness.

Taste is just superb. Perfect balance between fruity, slightly juicy notes of peach, papaya and citrus and a perfect bitterness and hop bite.

Mouthfeel is medium, soft an pillowy. Well carbonated.

Overall, a terrific IPA, just superb.

L - 1/2 finger fleeting offwhite head atop a translucent orange body.

S - very tropical. Citrus in the background. Small amount of dankness.

T - super-pungent Mosaic. Very fruity and very sweet. Pineapple, mango, grapefruit. A little funk. Low bitterness, no booziness.

F - medium-light body and medium carb.

O - Very unusual. I dig it, but not what I was expecting. Wish the sweetness was dialed down a bit.

L - pours a startlingly clear amber orange! What happened to the swamp water NEIPA?! Big fluffy head that leaves behind craters of giant bubbles and inconsistent, sticky lacing.

S - dank pine needles and lemon orange candy. Some peach and mango, but it's faint.

T - toasted white bread smothered with mixed berry jam. Dank papaya and hints of pineapple make an appearance along with a sticky creamy sugariness. Lacks the butter that was so prominent in OG Mofo. Finish is neutral and heavy. There are hops in here, but the cloying Mosaic absolutely dominates any bitterness or semblance of a classic IPA.

F - oily and sweaty. It's a sipper for sure. It's not like motor oil, but the grainy sugariness simultaneously makes it hard to drink and hard to put down.

O - weirdly enough, I think this is less flavorful that regular Mofosaic. It's certainly slicker and feels more potent, but that mosaic pop just isn't there. What we do have is a low, rumbling mosaic storm of heavy sweetness and zesty, spiced breadiness. A real treat, that's for sure.

A- hazy gold, half inch white head

S- hops and fruit juice dominate, slight vegetal aroma too.

T-follows the nose, tropical and citrus fruits, slight bite of bitterness grom the hops, lingering vegetal taste that is strangely complimentary.

F- medium bodied for an ipa

O- a great ne style ipa. These guys know what they are doing.

Pours dark orange and haze. Aroma is straight up orange juice and feels so creamy. This is all Mosaic all the time. Loved the taste and aroma. Really nicely balanced without being overly potent on the orange notes.

Appearance: With a nice bubble show, the head builds to two fingers above the hazy honey colored liquid; nice stickage and a patches of lacing

Smell: Juicy and dank, with a tropical fruit bouquet (pineapple, mango and tangerine)

Taste: Tropical juice forward, with pineapple, mango and berry tones; through the middle tangerine and pithy bitterness build; the finish is dank and moderately bitter

Mouthfeel: Creamy, with a medium to full body and moderate carbonation

Overall: Now that's what I'm talking about when I am looking for an IPA these days

It is like a hoppy dole fruit cup. Very balanced. Extremely drinkable with NO alcohol taste what so ever. I just wish it was a tad more hazy looking but all in all a perfect beer!

Poured from a growler filled at the brewery.

Pours a hazy golden orange color with a 2-finger soapy white head. The head sticks around for a while, leaving a few cobwebs of lace before settling into a bubbly halo.

The aroma is pure fruit salad. Lots of pineapple, with some berries, mangoes, and tangerines. Very subtle malt backbone. Even more subtle pine.

Oh boy. Oh. Boy. This flavor. I just died and went to mosaic heaven. This beer hits every note I've ever gotten from this hop, without being overly sweet or muddled. There's pineapple, mangoes, fresh berries, and some melon, followed by a wave of grapefruit and tangerines. There's some subtle cracker malt with a rindy, piney finish. Not the most balanced flavor in the world, but sweet lord is there a lot of it.

The feel is medium bodied with lighter carbonation. Fluffy, smooth, and creamy. Alcohol is nigh undetectable. Finish is a bit hot and bitter.

Overall, an incredible DIPA that perfectly showcases the mosaic hop. Mosaic is so-named for the wide and complex range of flavors it produces. I have never had a beer with this much flavor before. It's just a complete assault on the palate. I don't like the term "juicebomb" but this beer is the perfect definition.
