COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A strong light ale that explores the magnificent new Mosaic hop. Its name is earned from its multifaceted nature; where a plethora of flavours come together to form one glorious picture.
There’s everything in there from sharp citrus and tropical fruits to resinous pine.

Keg at Mother Kelly’s, London. It pours a slightly hazy straw color with a small white head. Aroma is fruity and hoppy, with notes of citrus, pineapple and grass. Taste is medium fruity and medium bitter, with notes of grapefruit peel and ripe apricots. Finishes medium bitter and zingy with citrus notes. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, very good IPA

Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. Cloudy orange coloured with orange marmalade and tropical fruit flavours, a creamy mouthfeel and a sweet zesty fruity finish. Excellent!

Keg at the Bootlegger, High Wycombe. Crystal-clear amber-orange beer with a small white head and a light to moderate fizz. Sweet orange peel and passion fruit and lime with just enough caramel malt to give a decent body without detracting from the hops. Great balance, great flavour, great IPA.

Hazy amber beer, tidy pale cream colour head. Palate is light and crisp. Light malts support a lovely delivery of Mosaic hops. Fresh orange, slightly honeyish, tangerine, touch of peel. Light passion fruit led tropical fruits. Slight floral orange before the crisp finish. Splendid!

Everettm (81) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2014
Light amber with a finger of brilliant white foamy head. A bold and amazingly multilayerd aroma greets you, starting with a light lemon and lime note leading to soft honey and toffee malt. Followed by sticky fruit sweets, mango and just a hint of resin. The initial taste is slightly less impressive than the aroma but soon starts to reveal more and more tropical notes as it warms and opens up. Mango and orange lead the way and soon hand over to more artificial candied fruit and sweet citrus peel. The package is wrapped up with a creamy mouthfeel and a fruity moderate bitterness

Ok, I haven’t rated for a while but as I met one of the brewers today at Bristol Food Connections (Mr Wiper), I feel compelled to dive back in. And what a beer to come back in on. First off, the nose is intense - Curling out of the purpose-made glass like a genie emerging from a lamp; lime juice to start with, a touch of salt, some sour candy. Then the sweetness starts to kick in - candied orange peel, orange and mango Robinsons fruit squash, all that good stuff. The pour is a pale, burnished copper with a slight haze and a creamy beige head. The flavour is stunning; sun-drenched and unctuous with lemon-lime notes, some grapefruit, and pine notes. This pine/spruce richness delivers long in the finish with juicy, rich moreishness. Of the single hop Mosaics I’ve had (Arbor, the mighty Kernel) this is the best. Keep up the good work guys; you rock.
