Holy danky amazing nose. Such herbal earthy dank. Fairly clear pale yellow with a medium sized white head. Taste is just as danky, yet not overly bitter, just a great balance of hop flavor and light malt backbone. Shit this is good! Just as good as the best IPAs and DIPAs.

Tap @ Toronado. Pours light Amber with a small head, short retention with no lacing. Aroma is an amazing hoppy, citrus, and mango combo. Flavor falls apart from the great aroma with a wheaty, pastey taste that ends with disappointment in what could've been with a dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

P: Hazy yellow/orange with a thin lacing. S: Grapes, kiwis, mango, pine, with citrus in the back. T: Pine, light oranges, and some malt in the back. M: Thin and light, with a bit of a crisp. Mild bitterness and a bit sticky in the end and mild soap. O: Easy drinking but everything is rather muted.

Draft. Peppery honeydew aroma. Flavors of melon, cracker. Higher carbonation than you might expect. Terrific.

Marheb (4610) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 31, 2015
(Echantillonné au Bagby Fest): Délicate présence de ce qui semble être des protéines de blé, adéquate astringence et agrumes propres et pointues. Engouffrabilité extrême.

Zymurgeist2 (1752) - 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 (11992) - Escondido, California, 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 (11180) - 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 (7334) - New York, 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 (1283) - 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.
