jredmond (5548) - 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.

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.

GT2 (8671) - San Diego County, California, USA - AUG 12, 2013
Tap at 38 Degrees for The Full Pint 6th Anniversary. Glowing neon green pour, straw and cloudy with light green hop green tint. Excellent webby lacing. Nose is bright starfruit, honeydew, not the thick passionfruit I was expecting but still great. More amarillo in character. Taste is catty, sharp, some waxy habanero pepper bite, mild soap, clean honeydew. Juicy and refreshing. Absolutely top notch session APA.
