Ok. Iíve had this 4 times now. 3 of which, it was one of the best beers Iíve ever had. The other time, it was about a week older, and it was still very good. I live in San Diego county, and over half of the beers I drink are session IPA style beers. This stuff is as good as it gets. And Iíve never had another Karl Strauss beer that I thought much of. Not trying to knock Karl Strauss. I havenít had much of their beer. But, my go to breweries are Alpine, Societe, Ballast Point, Modern Times, Russian River, and Pizza Port. And this Karl Strass Mosaic is on par with my other favorite breweries.

Ibrew2or3 (7252) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Poured up on tap at the Temecula location where it exhibits a clear deep gold body that supports a nice looking tight off white head. The aroma offers up inviting pineapple and mango tropical fruit notes as well as some cantaloupe. The taste starts surprisingly soft on the palate. It quickly gets into bitter hops that seem floral and then lime mixed with grapefruit. To midway more and more tropical fruity mango notes surface amid some thin yet firm resiny pine hops.. This is a solid Session IPA.
