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.

Pours a cloudy yellow color with a decent floral aroma. Taste is pine, and citrus with a hop flavor. Surprising rye taste with a good bitterness in the aftertaste. Overall a good IPA that was easy drinking with some substance.

Good. Hoppy. Nice bitterness from the 100 ibus but just a touch of booze from lack of a heavier malt base.

Very smooth and easy drinking despite 7.5%. Has a real nice aroma of pine and fruity hops with a sweet malt base. The flavor is nicely bitter with the malts coming through too. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

10oz Draft pour on tap at the brewery (Healdsburg, CA). Pours a nice glowing fiery orange hue, good haziness, frothy off white head atop dies down and laces ok, loose ringer atop. Aromas are resiny, a bit dank, floral. Firm bitterness atop with some jabs of fruit, a bit tropical, quickly luring into a citric and resiny floral bitter appeal. Fresh, potent, a bit juicy at times but more of an emphasis on that resiny, floral fresh bitterness. Initial is lighter end of the fold in body, d some bold hop elements start to hit with some fruity tropical wafts, fruity Mosaic, green Meridian mix liberally. A bit a fruity appeal, cleaner body, fuzzy citric backend with delicious hop driven fruit flavors throughout. Bigger green bitter resiny backend comes on as we round the corner, soapy, floral, almost chlorophyll appeal. Some nice pithy bitter grapefruit and florals taper out, s touch of body, blanc appeal, cooler bitter finish. Very tasty, fresh stuff with a fun hop profile. Cool, bitter, complex.

[Draught at Valhalla, NYC, Sep. 24] Pours a slightly hazy golden-orange with an average size lasting frothy off-white head. Decent amount of lacing. NIce aroma, fruity and moderately hoppy along with some breadiness. Flavour (7+) is fruity, hoppy and bready along with a bit of alcohol and a moderate to big bitter finish. Medium bodied. Pretty good IPA.
