jamestulloch (1258) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 20, 2013
Bottle from The Beerhive. Murky pale golden body with a thin white head that fades. Very little lacing. Aroma of lychee, mango, lime and green apple. Sweet fruit salad flavour. Medium body with an oily texture. Soft carbonation. A tangy, fruity IPA that’s very drinkable for its 7.2% ABV.

UPDATED: MAR 27, 2014 Mesmerizing that one hop could produce so much complexity. Mango, grapefruit, some floral notes and some nebulous...blueberry??? That’s a first. Beautifully smooth. Has some herbal notes up front which are consumed by mango and tropical fruits. Some sweet malt in the undergrowth. Finishes with quite a soft bitterness. There’s also a weird minty quality on the back-end. What an individual beer...maybe an individual hop. I’m taking a shot in the dark and deducing that that is why it is named ’mosaic’.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Beautiful IPA, really lovely. Clean, crisp, bitter. Long and drawn out flavour. A bit Limey, a bit herby. Great stuff.

Bill Becker (219) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - OCT 14, 2013
Bottle bought online from Etre Gourmet. Bottled Aug 24, 2013. 7.2% abv. It pours a cloudy yellow orange(it’s bottle conditioned) with a 1" head of foam and brings some very nice lacing. Big time grass and grapefruit in the smell with no hint of any malt. This IS super fresh and an American IPA so....;^) Grapefruit is on the prowl, some grassy notes standing by the grapefruit assuring that the Mosaic hops do their job right. And they do. Weirdly, the only time I notice any malt character is during the swallow. A bit of slightly sweet going on there only at that time. Is it bitter? For sure! Is it too much for Bitterbill to handle? Laws no! I’m digging it! Medium bodied with ditto for the carbonation. Just fine for the style and for my palate. Drinkability is very good for the abv and since I’m a big fan of bottle conditioned brews, the cloudy appearance doesn’t hurt the score in my book. This is really an enjoyable brew.

sebletitje (6582) - Enghien, BELGIUM - OCT 13, 2013
Draft @ ML Fontainas. Dorée, col épais blanc. Arôme est houblonné très frais, fruité vert avec cette pointe subtile de tropical. Bouquet malté reste présent mais en retrait pour permettre au houblon de vraiment rajouter une dimension excellente. Note cara pâle - grains. Palais est très frais avec une belle dose de houblon donnant un fruité appréciable d’agrumes, citron vert et pin léger. Le tout garde une belle présence des alpha acides pour un côté huileux - pin. Amertume persiste en fin de bouche tout en restant agréable. Une bière franchement bien rafraichissante.

ZwartePiet (59) - BELGIUM - OCT 13, 2013
Blonde tres tres tres legerement trouble. Au nez ca semble bien resineux, quelques notes agrumes, un peu fruité de la passion. Et en bouche c’est bien plus sec que ce que l’on aurait pu présagé. Oui il y a bien des touches boisées pin des landes, mais c’est aussi super resineux, vert. Un peu bonne si on croquait un babet tout vert avec les aiguilles en plus. crunch. Du coup c’est bon mais un poil deséquilibré. Et ’est un peu rapeux sur le coté de la bouche.

thewolf (11126) - Kolding, DENMARK - OCT 10, 2013
Bottle, bought @ Mikkeller and Friends, Cph.
Pours clear yellow with a small, creamy, white head. Aroma has resin, grapefruit, citrus, pine needles. Medium to low carbonation, fine dry and very creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has lots of hops, very bitter. Resiny, almost oily, soft piney. Fine maltiness to balance. Long, lingering very bitter finish. Very nice IPA.

Ah, more Kernel. First sighting in Belgium for me. 25 cl. draft @ Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Keg. Looks a pretty pale citrus with a creamy white head. Nose is citrus, tad fake citrus peel, bitter spices hops & way mellower Kernel yeas than I am used to. Taste is spices & lemon peel hops, light citrus peel, Kernel yeast is more subdued than usual, bitter herbs & light spices in the back. Very light body, feels stronger than the ABV. Nice overall but very different than I am used to from Kernel bottles & draft at festivals. This has that Moeder feel to it, you know? Still not bad to get Kernel here.
