Zymurgeist2 (1154) - Redwood City, California, USA - FEB 9, 2015
On tap at Gourmet Haus as part of SF Beer Week. Restrained citrus and strong pine. Pours a clear brushed gold with moderate white head. Flavor is pine and earth, with slight tropical fruit. Medium thin mouthfeel and moderate high bitterness for the mouthfeel. A little hard to figure this one out.

BeerandBlues2 (10345) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - DEC 17, 2014
Tap at Urge Gastropub. Pours clear pale gold with a large, frothy white head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is floral, citrus and tropical hops with light biscuit malt. Flavor is moderate hops, medium bitterness, light malt, tropical fruity notes all throughout and a dry finish. Light body and moderate carbonation.

Dogbrick (8887) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 6, 2014
Sample at the brewpub. Pours a slightly hazy orange-gold color with a medium white head that evaporates steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of grassy hops, citrus and biscuit malt. Light-bodied with flavors of herbal hops, citrus and bready malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a lingering fruity hops aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

jredmond (5805) - Manhattan, New York, USA - OCT 7, 2014
Sampled at GABF 2014 with Andrew, Mel and David. Pours a light golden body with thin creamy white head. Aroma is funky fruit - melon, mango and peach skins. The funk character is much more mellow and rounded out than Nelson sometimes is, which I guess is attributed to the Mosaic. Super smooth and sessionable. Really nice fruity, funky session IPA.

thome50 (1129) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - JUN 3, 2014
Tap at FWIBF. Pours a hazy orange with white head. Aroma of passion fruit, orange, lemon rind and a slight dank. Taste is very tropical and hoppy for a beer at 4%. Peach comes out near the end. Nice.

On Tap at Hamiltons in San Diego, as Gravity Check IPA. Big juicy, fruity hop nose, with a touch of bitterness. Crisp and refreshing, light bodied but not thin. Excellent hop bitterness and flavor. A great session IPA on par with the best of them.
