I’m surprised this is t getting better ratings and coming in as one of the better HB offerings. Maybe I’m just a mosaic super fan. I’m liking the fruit and bitterness equally and will need to buy it again once it’s out. Wish I could have 1 more to drink next to Double Grid coming out next week which is my favorite HB IPA. Don’t pass on this one.

A former teammate of mine brought a can of this beer up to another teammate of mine house in Wisconsin for the Eagle River Pond Hockey tournament. It poured a hazy yellow with white head that is leaving some lace. The scent had dank tropical fruit notes. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with tropical fruit loveliness. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall its a solid beer.

My first beer after a dry January. I liked this one. It was bight , tropical and juicy with some citrus, and slight sweetness. Up front there were some nice juicy tropical notes with some mango standing out. It also had a little bit of earthiness to it. It had a nice dry finish with some bitterness and a touch of sweetness.

16oz can, PKG 1/14/20 Unda the Sea. Cloudy yellow-orange body with a tall & frothy ivory head that leaves thick, chunky lacing on the glass. Mosaic hop aroma: lemongrass, chive, grapefruit pith, earthy pine. Hop forward flavors render lemon-lime, grapefruit, pine, guava, chive, grass, and faint berry. Full & creamy body is zesty and resinous, moderate carbonation, and moderately bitter finish. A fine single hop NE style DIPA as expected from Hop Butcher.....

Canned 1/14/20; drank 1/16/20 @ the Yarchives.

Opaque dull orange/yellow appearance.

A violent pour yielded a HUGE off-white head; a thick curtain of tree-rung lace.

Lemon, melon, mild cat piss, dry grass & faint cream notes in the nose.

Creamy medium mouthfeel.

Lemon, cream, melon, faint cat piss & dry grass flavors.

Too much mosaic can be a bad thing; this is drinkable but isn't up my alley.
