All about the mosaic, with all the beautiful mosaic notes though they manage to pull a little skunkiness out on the tail end of the finish. Not *the* best mosaic beer I've had, but pretty damned tasty. As usually, weird absence of malt flavors and body that are hallmark of rr beers, but prime hop flavors win the day.
