Bottle, shared with the brewery boys. Hazy golden hue with a lively, clingy white head. Dank, green hop profile, maybe some gooseberry, but not especially fruity in the aromatics department. Assertively hoppy body, pale crackery malts, moderate bitterness. Very nice, but not the expected "Mosaic experience".

Draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver
Hazy dark blond color. Good strong ipa, I like the malts, crackery and a bit bready, but the Mosaic, although good, usually comes through with more power; it’s resiny, a bit dank.

Bright amber, thin head. Almost dank mosaic aroma. Bitter, nice earthy hop, the malts are a bit on the toasty biscuity character.

500ml bottle from Trader Joe in Salem OR
Light golden coloured ale with a large thick and frothy pure white head.
Very strong and fresh hop aromas here..floral and orange marmalade..very nice.
Again in the taste very good yet mellow and persistent bitterness..mostly like orange peel.
Mouth feel is great..medium with good carbonation.
very nice pale ale.....so drinkable.

Growler from Total Wine. What a way to celebrate my 100th APA!!!
Rich orange pour, nice white head. Awesome mosaic aroma, lots of grapefruit (juice, not peel), some tropicals, hints of onion relatively minimal. IPA-level aroma, wonderful. But the flavors are really APA as they should be. Subtle isn’t quite the word for the hops, but this is no Ruinition either. Easy, so easy to drink. No up-front malt but a small bit of late sweetness like honey. So damn good. Beautiful showcase for this trendy hop.
