COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our new 2013 release features Mosaic hops, a new hop from the Pacific Northwest. They add a burst of citrus notes to the distinctive layers of German, English and other American hops, all from growing regions near the "hop belt" of the 48th Latitude. Cheers!

Pours a clear burnt orange with a descent looking head. Smells really of nothing, maybe bready, maybe earthy. Taste is not too bad. It’s not too watered down yet it is not standout bold. Palate is medium bodied, earthy up front and finishes with a subtle bitter end. Overall If this was labeled as a pale I would be raving about this beer. Again not too bad but lacks that IPA punch.

Gold pour, nice white head. Big floral aroma with tangerine, orange, grapefruit... flavor is delicious citrusy floral. Much better than DecIPA #1.

12 oz. bottle. Clear orangish amber with a nice slightly off-white head. Aroma is a nice bready caramel with a sweet citrus of pineapple and orange and piny hops with bitter orange peel. Taste is malty with caramel and sweet citrus and then comes an escalating bitterness which peaks very mild and mellow and smoothes out into a pineapple and hop aftertaste. This one has a lot of balance. It's between this one and the simcoe for best if this series.

Bottle. Clear rich orange pour with a smaller head. Tropical fruit and herbal aroma and taste. I love this hop variety. This is very good.

joejames (98) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 1, 2014
Bottle to English pint glass. Pours deep amber, two finger head with lots of lacing. Aroma of spruce, herbs. Taste is piney, dark fruits, herbal bitterness nicely balanced with sweet malts. Medium body, sticky, medium carbonation. Finishes earthy bitter with notes of herbs, pine, vanilla, and caramel. Interesting hop on its own. Very drinkable ale.

Clear, brown amber. Even, thin lacing. Medium to strong bitterness on the rest roast. Piney aroma. Somewhat soapy taste. Number 2 in the series.

I taste spruce more than citrus in this hop variety. Not much hops for an IPA.

boxofrane (2047) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 26, 2014
Bottle from wegmans. Pours clear copper with a medium sized off white head. The aroma has floral notes, big pine, some citrus notes, very clean. The taste has a big fruity juiciness. A bit orange, mango, dry bitter, semi chalky end.

firemarshal (144) - North Carolina, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Bottle from mix pack. Pours clear; amber in color. Aroma is floral, pine, caramel. Flavor is lemon-lime hops overwhelmed by cereal malts. Too thick and syrupy for my taste.

Ughsmash (7086) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Bottled. Poured clear, medium golden with a short whitish head. The aroma picked up dank floral and citrus notes with a heavy sweet base.. aiight. The flavor found sweet honey and caramel notes at the core with floral notes, black pepper, and grapefruit bitterness around.. finished spicy and bitter. Medium-bodied and well-carbonated.. pretty good balance.. nice one.
