COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
OK warriors, weíre co-hosting a beer thatís to be delivered from our brew deck to your ceremonial chalice. Weíve again brewed with our cohorts at Three Floyds Brewing Co and have given birth to the sludge of angels, Anicca India Pale. Anicca IPA is single hopped snake juice showcasing the Mosaic hop, a plant throwing off a cornucopia of fruit flavors. Bitter sweet and full of force, this IPA bends your brain into a tropical storm of writhing glory. As the philosophy explains, Anicca will come and go, so come sip this before all is gone.

Admin Note: Please be aware that Three Floyds also has a version of this beer brewed at their own brewery. All Half Acre ratings go here.

drowland (5993) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - AUG 8, 2013
Sampled during CBC 2013. Amber orange pour with a nice khaki head and good lacing. Lots of tropical fruits on the aroma, light and dark, with some citrus and just enough bready malts to back it. Good flavor as well, some lemon, plenty of tropical fruit, a decent balance of bitter and doughy maltiness. Tasty!

Couple drafts on tap at the Tap Room (Chicago, IL). Really excited for this beast. Pours a deep copper amber pour, good haziness, frothy tannish head. Firm ring of a layer, laces pretty well. Good deeper hue, glow and haziness. Aromas are a rich melange of fruit, citrus and tropical fruit elements. Melon, grapefruit, and tangerine, good mangos and papaya. A touch sweet but rich with doughy and bready malts, bit of biscuits. Nice flavors as initial pushes with peaches, grapefruit, bitter pine and florals. Front end is bready, pale malts, and grainy. Some good florals. Middle and backend are really where this beer shines. Fuzzy peach, tropical fruit, lots of florals, piney elements. White grape, melon, firmer florals and bitter resiny hops hit the palate. Real lush and bitter with good flavors, fruit, strongest bitterness into the backend and mellow body. The sweetness from the malt doesnít crop up and get more intense like Iíd expect. Good hop flavors, the Mosaic shines here. Big fruit, bigger bitterness offers good girth into the backend with the smaller body. Good flavors, hops, and bitterness all around. Well done, flavors are potent, bitter slanted by a good deal as we move back. Really damn good beer. Darker than I expected, good lacing, great aromas and flavors, fairly complex. Nice job, guys. I can see why Drew doesnít like it.. but I think itís damn good albeit an odd malt bill/profile overall. I think Kan said it best when he said "Alpha King with Mosaic Hops"..

gunnar (5225) - Sandnes, NORWAY - MAY 1, 2013
On tap at Mikkeller, Copenhagen. Pours dark amber with a small off-white head. Aroma is fruity, piney hops under a sweet malty body. Taste is sweet overall, herbal and resiny, sticky mouthfeel, a bit out of focus, still a nice ipa.

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2013 Draft at half acre. Pours deep red with white head. Aroma has tropical fruit, slightly catty and woody, toasted nutty malt character, hop aroma isnít as big as I was expecting. Flavors have a muddled toasted malt character with tropical fruit papaya and guava, slightly woody and sticky hops, lacks a bright tropical fruit character that Iíve come to know of this hop. Sort of an odd malf base and poor use of these hops made this not at all what I was expecting and bummed me out since it was the first commercial mosaic beer Iíve had. 3.4 Another draft pour tonight and it has developed nicely. Got a better aroma this time, slightly better overall hop feel.

tiong (3724) - Espoo, FINLAND - MAY 2, 2013
Draught @ Mikkeller, Copenhagen

Pours dark orange with a foamy white head. Aroma of fruity hops, caramely malts, sweetish notes. Taste is fruity and hoppy with some citrus, caramel and malts. Finish is hoppy and fruity with some malty notes. Nice, but doesnít feel super fresh. Still tasty, though.

Draft at the Tap Room. Was very excited for this one, but alas. Pours a deep amber with an offwhite head, good clarity. Nose is sticky and almost cloying. Loads of melon and a huge guava/cat piss thing. In fact, the whole tap room smells like itís been sprayed by a thousand cants. Sticky and resiny, full of late hops on the nose. No caramel, which is good. On tasting, the malt bill is fine. Guessing some special roast in here, not the same malt bill as AK. I actually kind of like the malt. Big and sticky, this beer seems like it was over the top with late hops. More of that guava, sticky and cloying hop resin. This needs some mid boil and a drop in the whirlpool additions. The hop complexity is lacking and makes this just unbalanced overall. Needs more bitterness as well. I wish I could love this beer but Iím just not a fan.
