Poured from a can into a DFH glass, which revealed a hazy amber with a 2-finger head which, while moving toward a coating, never left. Nose was dominated by caramel, pine and citrus. Taste was creamy and nicely balanced with predominant notes of citrus (esp. orange), green apple and caramel.
Mouthfeel was sticky and nicely carbonated. Bitterness is not overwhelming but lingers. All-in-all, a nice DIPA option.

Keg @ Brewdog Birmingham. Pours a rusty orange, tequila creeps around a resinous pithy citrus character stealth-like. iím not the biggest Mosaic or tequila fan but they seem to blend well here alongside a pronounced bitterness and sharp juiciness.

From can. Wow what a beer! Pale golden color. Aroma of juicy citrus and grapefruit. A spicy and flavorful middle, this was a 2014 can so there is mango and slight tropical flavor. I agree with the description of the round middle taste definite hints if butteriness from the sorachi ace hops. The bitterness is the in the crisp finish and in the almost tastebud numbing effect of the hops. It is awesome and very tasty. Still very balanced and only very slightly boozy.

Pours a barely cloudy golden color with a good thick clean white head. Aroma is very good with notes of grapefruit dominant, then hay, cereal, malt, caramel, then citrus with a finish of more hops and pine. Taste is smooth malt body with some caramel in it followed by a good strong hop bitter note, a more bitter grapefruit, lots of citrus fruitiness, and a bit of spice. Very smooth on the palate, drinkable. Overall a great one to kill one or two of to knock yourself out at night

Keg at Brewdog Shepherdís Bush. Pale yellow, lightly sparkling, small bubbly white head. Aroma - lemon, Belgian wit. Body is medium, quite smooth, a little foamy. Taste - caramel, tart lemon, passionfruit, slightly floral, some alcohol coming through. Just a little bit harsh but pretty nice.

Tap at Brewdog Birmingham. Poured a clear medium amber with a long lasting frothy white head and clingy lace. The aroma is light grassy malt citrus hop. The flavour is medium bitter with a huge zesty lemon citrus, buttery barnyard, grass hop palate with a long bitter finish. Medium bodied with average carbonation. One of the very best imperial IPAís Iíve ever had. This beer has everything!

Slightly hazy light golden color with a big creamy head that settles to a dollop and leaves good lacing. Aroma is interesting with some sweetness and breadiness along with rye malt spiciness, grapefruit, pine resin and some tropical fruit, all blending together. Taste has some sweetness upfront like the nose with light caramel, grapefruit, hints of tropical fruit and some alcohol midway through. The rye spiciness takes over rather boldly and mingles with the piney hop flavor and booziness, then transitions to a prominent grapefruit rind bitterness. Finishes semi dry with a building bitterness and a little honey sweetness. Mouthfeel is semi creamy with a medium body and medium/high carbonation. The hop varieties used made this interesting but Iím not sure they work harmoniously. Mosaic hops still present a bit of a curveball to me. Not sure if I appreciate their flavor or not. Still, I enjoyed exploring this big beer and itís rye spiciness.
