Received as an extra in a trade. Canned 8/23/18.

A - Poured into my Duvel tulip a nice hazy milkshake pale straw hue with a thin one finger head that fades slowly to leave sudsy wisps.

S - Aromas of dank earthy hops, citrus peel, orange jam. Light sweetness, some green grassy hops. Flashes of vegative onions though thanks to the Mosaic.

T - Taste is similar to the nose, quite dank, loads of sweeter citrus peel. Like an orange marmalade. Flashes of strawberry too, maybe some light dank overripe pineapple. Tons of oats as well. Finish is slightly strawberry sweet. Flashes of onion vegative notes but thankfully the sweet jammy citrus drowns it out.

M - Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated, creamy, the oats definitely are noticeable.

O - Overall this was a solid New England IPA, or milkshake IPA, whatever you want to call it. The mosaic clashes a little bit with the citra (with the vegetative onion notes), however, there are enough positive qualities to offset that. Very solid hoppy beer.

Pours a stupidly gorgeous golden-orange color with a great looking fluffy one plus finger head. Great lacing.

Aroma is a bouquet of tropical fruits mixed with just a kiss of dankness and pine. Lots of peach and melon with fresh orange Zest sprinkled in.

Taste is soft and creamy with a kick of hip bite at the end of the sip. Definitely tropical and with lots of citrus. More of an east coast beer with some remnants of the classic west coast.

Overall, wren House is killing the IPA game in AZ. In my opinion this is there best yet. Perhaps the beer is a bit undercarbonated. I see this pairing well with almost anything, including more delicate items like fish. It gets a 94.5/100.
