Enjoyed on tap at Half Acre. Served in a pint glass.
A: Pours a dark amber color with some yellowish highlights. Soapy lace is left down the glass.
S: Nice burst of tropical fruits. Mainly pineapple and mango with a some mild dankness to it. Light sweetness from the malts. Touch of caramel.
T: The taste is much more vibrant than the nose. Juicy pineapple, dank resin with a touch of bitter pine on the finish. The malt bill is slightly sweet, reminiscent of sugar cookies.
M: Medium high carbonation, a little prickly in nature, with a medium light body. So much flavor packed into this beer.
O: Delicious. I could drink pint upon pint of this. Very well balanced and highly drinkable.
Serving type: on-tap

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2013 Pint on tap at Half Acre. I was curious about the mosaic hops. I got a lot more out of the taste than the aroma in Anicca. The aroma was a moderate dose of pine and muskmelon. Appearance was a deep red-orange with a small amount of white foam on top, and a decent amount of bubbles streaming up. The taste is where things got pretty wild. Goliath-sized hop presence: juicy, piney, dank, and fresh. Tropical fruit is the main attraction: tangerine, kiwi, orange, muskmelon, starfruit. It has a strange combination of candied flavor and a dry texture. Itís not sweet and itís practically puckering, like a sour Warhead candy. Palate was medium bodied and the carbonation seemed pretty subdued despite all the bubbles that I could actually see in the glass. Overall, itís an excellent single-hop brew that offers a nice, clean glimpse of a new variety. It coated my mouth with sour fruit juice flavor for about an hour...even after a cup of coffee I could still taste it in my mouth. I could only take one pint of it, but I highly recommend it for the hop heads out there.

Sampled on tap at the draft room. I havenít been here yet and havenít found much reason to come, this is the first beer in a long time Iíve been excited to try from Half Acre. Pours a rather dark brownish orange in color with a fingers worthy of creamy off-white head. Nose is pretty juicy, especially on the grapefruit and white grape front. There is also a fair amount of floral notes to it, but citrus is the main theme here. Citrus, melon, grapefruit, and white grape headline the flavor profile. Itís very clean and crisp with only light lingering bitterness. Light to moderate mouthfeel, good carbonation, soft bitterness, and a moderate finish. Yes! Finally another beer from HA I can get behind! Really nice example of a single hop IPA, would love to see them explore this territory some more. New Zealand hops rule!

A single hopped snake juice showcasing the Mosaic hop, a plant throwing off a cornucopia of fruit flavored. Bitter sweet and full of force, this IPA bends your brain into a tropical storm of writhing glory.
