Pours a heady,foamy,lacy, lightly hazed dark yellow/gold. Nice hoppy aroma,citrus,fruit,floral,juicyness,tropical. Taste is full body,malty bready, good citrus fruit hop flavor. Maybe best 4% session ipa ive had. This would be really great outdoors though, I can see it being in a can if it already isnt. Tastey and refreshingly hoppy.

Sampled at an ESBLS tasting. It poured a lightly hazy golden color with a white head. The aroma was of fresh squeezed oranges, grapes, some pineapple and loads of other fruity and citrusy notes. The taste was of citrus, floral hops and bready malts. It had a nice hop bitterness. Very nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle from 6-pack acquired from Berkotís Foods (New Lenox, IL). Pours a mellow hazed darker golden hue. Some fiery orange and darker gold glow on the edges, mellow carbonation bubbles up. Frothy white head atop stays as a decent layer, laces small overall. Aromas show a good dose of citrus, a bit more plain with lemon and grapefruit, firmer florals, touch of spiciness. Mellow bready malt, faint tropical fruit. Some real earthy grass type vibe kinda dumps that Mosaic character off in the weeds though. Solid, even keeled. Initial is lighter end of the fold, some cleaner grainy and bready malt elements make way for a decent dose of citrusy hops. Rind oils and juice start to kick a bit more, gentle tropical fruit. A bit raw and grainy for the cleaner smaller malt body itís offering. Backend is a bit dry, bitter. Some nice hop water presence as this loses a touch of body that these session IPAs generally donít offer, but this one seems to fall off a bit harder. Solid offering but I see myself reaching for an All Day or Lagunitas instead in the future. Solid beer though overall.

On tap at Tapwerks. Pours a clear earthy orange with a near white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of citrus, both boot yet and sweet, with a light sweet grain backbone. Flavor starts with bitter citrus and just a hint of grapefruit but finish is much more sweet citrus and sweet grains.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours golden with a big head and good lacing on the glass.
The aroma is nice enough, picks up where Single Wide left off, grassyÖ but with some melony character and a touch of toasty malt.
The flavor is pretty enjoyable plenty fruit forward, a little drier than perhaps the other two, the bitterness level is mild but niceÖ plenty of citrus & melon hop flavor.
The palate is where this one suffers for me, many other great examples of this low ABV high hop family have done a fantastic job of not being watery and thin, this one has a hard time with that. Itís not that the mouthfeel is terrible or unpleasant, but itís just entirely too thin for a high score in that category.
I canít say itís bad beer though, Iíll likely drink more of it when it comes to my neighborhood.
