4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
$3 taster at Half Acre’s tap room. Dark brown color, a bit hazy, with a thin head. Big buttload of what I thought were Amarillo hops, more fool me. Piney in the main, but allowing some tropical fruit to to appear too. In fact, with the malt added in, the big hop comes in almost like a fruity candy. Yes, very sweet, and too rich.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
2014 bottle purchased form the brewery. Deep red pour decent head. Smell is hlf acre yeast and pine, some pinesol and lemon, bit of tropical notes. Flavor has a light bit of specialty malt which is caramally and toasty it has flavors of tangerine and pine, with a pervasive finishing bitterness. So many Mosaic hopped beers coming out, maybe the crop was good. Also wanted to say that the bottle cap on this beer is impressive.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

Clear red pour with a single finger head. Aroma of passion fruit and body odor. Very dank. Medium mouth. Taste is full of passion fruit and more BO. Lots of bizarreness going on. Pretty bitter. Long dry finish. I’m curious to taste the 3 Floyd’s version.

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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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!
