12 oz. bottle, consumed on 3-14-17. Best by 05/30/2017. Pours a bright bronze with a large amount of beige head. Good lacing, which only strengthens the appearance. Strong aroma but too much on the fruit side for my preferences: Peach and pineapple scents. Also pine and pine resin in the nose. Good, piney flavor. Again, sweeter and fruiter than ideal: Cotton candy and peach flavor elements. Freshly cut lemon and grapefruit. Lemon Drop candy. Dry and bitter, almost chemical finish (in a good way). Long, bitter aftertaste. Medium body. Soft in the palate. Reasonably lively. Forgettable palate effects, unfortunately, aside from the powerfully and enjoyably bitter aftertaste. Dialing down the sweet fruitiness and dialing up the dry bitterness possibly could have elevated this beer to greatness. Thats good advice for a lot of IPAs on the market in 2017, in fact.

This is easily my favorite use of mosaic hops in a beer, as mosaic is my least favorite hop so far. Nice flavor that is light enough but still good and bitter.

Good smelling IPA. The taste is fairly typical. Could use more alcohol, IMO ( obviously).

bookman10 (1074) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - MAR 1, 2017
Pours a clear, copper-gold, with minimal head. Aroma is a bit soapy, with some hops and citrus. Flavor is very bitter, with the pine/spruce elements of the hops predominating. Could use a bit more balance perhaps. Bitter finish and aftertaste.

Sample at Studio 35 as part of the Princess Bride movie and beer tasting on 2/19/17. Clear amber pour with a thick white head. Aroma of malt, rye and citrus hop. Malt and grapefruit flavor with candied orange character before a piney hop finish.

Ericular (995) - Minnesota, USA - FEB 24, 2017
Pours a nice clear copper with plenty of white, pillowy head and great scattered lacing. Aroma is super fresh and bright with the Mosaic front and center. Even better than some single-hop Mosaics Ive had, as the Meridian and Denali hops provide some extra nuance. This beer smells amazing. Taste is tropical fruits at first - pineapple and mango - quickly yielding to the Mosaic tang that the aroma hinted at. This combines well with the transition to a sticky, resinous, bitter finish that dries out superbly. The finish is dry, but mellow, leading to a very short recovery period between sips. I had to exercise will power to make this beer last more than a few minutes. The finish sits pretty well with mouth-coating stickiness. Really well-done. Summary: Wheat, Rye and Mosaic hops in perfect balance.

Tap at SF Beer Week Opening Gala. Pours clear golden. Aroma: Malty but also pines, forest, resin, grass. Medium body, low sweetness, very bitter late, more forest and resin, residual sweetness. Drier than expected. Good
