3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clear, burnt yellow with medium carbonation. Nice piney, grassy nose. The mosaic really comes through on the nose. Itís got a light to medium bodied mouth feel with good carbonation. Itís pretty hop forward. The body of the flavor is made up of grassy hop and pils and then it becomes more piney on the tale end as the simcoe takes over. If finishes a bit sweet and sticky with hops lingering on the tongue.
Overall, a great IPA from a great brewery. I can definitely see myself going back for more of this one.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled April 2014
A steady pour into my New Belgium globe glass produces a fat-two-finger thick, pale tan colored head. The beer is a light honey color that shows a mostly clear, pale amber tinged, bright golden hue when held up to the light. The aroma has a huge tropical fruit hop note to it that is redolent of guava, peach concentrate, lychee, pineapple, and peppery, perfectly ripe, almost tart kumquat zest. The nose is expressively hoppy and veritably jumps out of the glass.
The beer is pretty dry, though there is a light sweetness that is mostly accentuated by the ripe hop fruit character. The finish has a solid, biting bitterness to it that is accentuated by a peppery, herbal hop character that leans towards woody oils; this really lingers for . Notes of guava, lychee, and ripe tangelo zest up front yield to peppery, herbaceous, hemp-like, and pine needle leaning character, with the latter balancing out the former. This really finishes nice and light, there is just enough body to not allow the aggressive hop character to completely run rough-shod; eminently quaffable though, and one of those beers that can disappear way faster than you are expecting. The malt character plays barely a supporting role, as it should, a touch of hay like grain character and a suggestion of pale, cracker like malt.
This is a nicely fresh, aggressively hopped IPA; definitely hits my need for a hop fix, and it serves as a nice digestif for the Indian food I just ate.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
650 ml bottle. Pours a golden colour with a large frothy white head. Aroma is rather strong with herbs, weed, pine and fruitiness. Rich and floral flavour with strong bitterness, sweet orange juice, pils malt, strong herbal notes and some mild graininess. Medium bodied and a big, dry, very bitter finish. I just love Mosaic hops, but somehow pils malt is a bit too dominant here malt-wise. Maybe this just isnít as fresh as it should be. Still enjoyable.

65 cl bottle. No freshness info.
Pours clear golden color with a large white head. Nice fruity and hoppy on the nose, floral notes, pine needles and some grass. Caramel malts on the flavor, citric fruits with oily and resinous hops. Slick bitter palate. Nice, refreshing and balanced, nothing special though.
