On tap at Tap and Mallet in Rochester, NY.

This one pours a slightly hazy rusted orange, with a small head, and lots of lacing.

This is a dirty, pissy, and sweet Mosaic bomb. There's candied blueberry punch, with orange juice, and pine.

I don't really like Mosaic much, so maybe I'm not the best judge here. It's definitely a good expression of the hop, as there's blueberry punch, and mandarin orange, almost with a taste like the fruity juice at the bottom of a fruit cup. There's a smooth grassy bitterness that definitely helps the balance. There's no malt character at all.

This is light bodied, crisp and clean- with absolutely no sign of the ABV at all, which is quite impressive.

I can appreciate that this is a well made DIPA, despite my usual distaste for Mosaic hops.

another courtesy of captain sirsteve...thanks buddy!!!

what a stunner! I am a massive fan of mosaic (who isnt) and this is a spectacular double showcasing the wonderful hop. not juicy in the looks but the taste is supreme juice. body is a touch thin but drinks lighter than an 8.5. very good brew. not my favorite mosaic brew but certainly up there.

A: Poured from the Crowler into a Piraat tulip/snifter-type glass. Body is slightly hazy golden with a 1-finger white head that settles pretty quickly. Decent legs of lace.

S: Good nose that showcases the Mosaic hop varietal - loads of tropical fruit, with pineapple predominant, but also a touch of grapefruit and even apricot - over a solid sweet malt bill.

T: Soft stone fruit up front (apricot, ripe peaches), then tropical fruity hops - pineapple juice and a hint of mango. Finishes with a slight bitterness that calls to mind lemons, but overall this one leans toward the sweeter side of things - both with the DIPA malt foundation and the tropical fruity hops.

M: Light in carbonation, this one is modestly slick in feel. Call it medium in heft.

O: Good. Not earth-shattering, but quite good.
