A deeper gold than the IPL with a sweet fruity hop aroma. Medium bodied with a sweet cotton candy fruity biscuit flavor, I am getting strawberries & cream from this. Unexpected but nice.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from AA. Lovely nose with grapefruit, mango, and pineapple dominating. Average carbonation, mouthfeel is a little oily with a medium to medium light body. Astringently bitter with some burned plastic on the finish. Also quite boozy for the style. Maybe needs some more malt to balance out the hops. Wonderful nose though. Nowhere near the quality of their Mosaic session.
