Alpha10 (789) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 4, 2017
2017/08/04 - Pours a hazy pale orange honey colour with s soapy, white head that quickly reduces and leaves minimal lacing. Aroma is orange, mango, biscuit, grass and light creamsicle. Taste is creamsicle, mango, biscuit, grass and light resin. Mouthfeel is light to medium and silky with sharp carbonation and a long, minutely tart finish. Ok, but nothing special.

Draught at Brewer’s Tap and Table, 7/1/17 and Worden Hall, 8/19/17.j12601 (12973) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - AUG 21, 2017
Heavily hazy, though not soupy, pale, straw-blonde with golden tints and a full, well-retained, white head.
The more mild side of mosaic is noted in the nose, thankfully (since it’s such a light beer), showing nectarine skin, apricots and light meyer lemon. Biscuity malts lie behind it, and perhaps a touch of vanilla-like sugar character from the lactose. It’s mostly soft, fuzzy, green hops, though and it’s both clean and shows no resin, alcohol or yeast.
Soft and fruity, with mostly stone fruit and mild citrus. Biscuity malts, lactose and a tight carbonation provide a supple texture while hops show light bitterness and juicy fruits growing stronger as the beer warms and breathes. The lactose provides a bit of gentle acidity and orange creamsicle flavor, but does give it a somewhat "thick" character that is definitely questionably-desirable in a light, hoppy pale ale. That being said, the amount of clean, well-presented flavors, bright hoppiness and lack of resin, all at ~3% abv is undeniably great brewing and I’m happy to drink this beer whenever I see it.
Can. Pours a hazed golden amber with a medium sized white head. Soft citrus on the nose, creamy and fruity, gentle mango. Medium bodied, light and gently sweet, creamy. Not quite vanilla, but does have a nice ice cream sweetness to it. Easy drinking, light citrus into the finish, a bit of mango. slowrunner77 (12450) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 18, 2017
Translucent golden orange. Smells and tastes of creamsicle with lighter tropical fruit and mango. Spot on there but lighter than it should be and not as creamy as it maybe really wants at 3%. Ron (4058) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUN 27, 2017
Can. Light aroma of citrus hops in the pour with a small head. Light flavor of pineapple, and other citrus hops. I did not read the ABV until I started drinking and then I knew what ’soft serve’ meant. Enjoyable lite beer.

Think this is an off batch or something because flavors seem off. But, that being said, tap at Banter Bar. Pours opaque orange, white head. Aroma is butter and corn, off flavors, orange. Flavor is similar. It’s on tap, but maybe an old keg? merc7186 (3142) - North Tonawanda, New York, USA - MAY 18, 2017

Tropical mango hop aroma with some grassy hops in there as well. Taste is full flavored especially for a 3% beer. Tropical hops with a slight bitter and a bit medicinal finish. Easy drinking but not watery at all. Very nice. More bitter and pine comes through the more I drink. Still solid but liked it a bit more initially than 16oz in. altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - NOV 29, 2016
On tap at Whole Foods, Columbus Circle. Bold yellow body with white head. Nose is fruits, citrus, floral. Taste is hoppy, fruity straw. Bitter in the finish.
