COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
OK warriors, we’re co-hosting a beer that’s to be delivered from our brew deck to your ceremonial chalice. We’ve 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.

on draft at brewery. A little too boring. Maybe compared to the others. Light hops, heavy sweetness. Some booze showing through. Meh.

drewbeerme (3902) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 2, 2013
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 isn’t 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 I’ve 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 I’ve had. 3.4 Another draft pour tonight and it has developed nicely. Got a better aroma this time, slightly better overall hop feel.

jesperhammer (3548) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 9, 2013
07-DEC-2013, bottle @home, from Mikkeller & Friends. A gift. Slight gusher. Hazy amber with almost white head. A wonderfull hoppy aroma with a good dose of malts. Grape fruit, pine, and exotic fruits. Taste the same with the malts more forward, mostly in the form of caramel. Very hoppy, some sweetness but finish is dry. Somewhat like an IIPA but never that sweet, and thinner body - medium at the most. Very nice brew.

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 5, 2013
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 it’s 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 I’m just not a fan.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 1, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2013 Big pour at the source with source meaning half acre... Pours a deeper reddish caramel hue, lightly transparent, and topped with a frothy barely off-white head... Aroma is assertive with that piney tropical fruit goodness. Somewhat dank. Juicy yet a touch dry. Really nice with hops abound... Flavors are more of the same with semi-sweet and dry with a dank tropical fruit focus. A bit piney late and through the backend. The malts don’t really get in the way despite its alpha king like appearance. Medium bitterness through the backend with a light dryness. Really like the mosaic in this one.
