ClassyBeagle (374) - USA - AUG 23, 2015
From NOTES: A; Grapefruit, mango, grassy, citrus, touch of sugary bread malt. A: Very hazy orange body. Big white head. Great retention and thick lacing. T: Follows the nose exactly with copious amounts of dank tropical fruit, pine, grassy funky papaya, decent balance of brown sugar cookie malt. P: Moderate, smooth body, medium carbonation. O: I don’t dig the mosaic hop and this beer supremely confirms that. A citrus-floral-resiny hop bomb.

neongolden (804) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 19, 2015
(330ml bottle from La Mise en Bière, Lausanne) Pours a slightly hazy orange-gold with a decent head of whitish froth that lingers with lace. Juicy nose of mango, tangerine, pineapple, lychee?, dank wet foliage, a bit of fruity resin, fairly pungent but with a caramel core. Palate has a big sweet caramel component at first to match the mango, pineapple and other tropical/citrus notes, but bitterness from earthy pine and resin quickly becomes apparent. Bitterness builds to a high level by the finish, which is dry and astringent with unripe mango and orange peel in the background. Medium-full oily body, creamy carb. I don’t think this was totally fresh and yet it’s still boss, big mix of fruit and earthy pine showcases Mosaic well, backbone is there to hold the bitterness too. Alcohol hidden as well.
