From the tap at the Mad Taco in Waitsfield, VT - beautiful slightly hazy golden color with a warm, white head of small bubbles that sticks around. Light grapefruit/citrus over hops aroma carried by a good carbonation. Flavor kicks off with a bright bitter note, and but mellows out to a softer, deliciously slightly salty aftertaste. Creamy body buoyed by a light carbonation. This is a very versatile, drinkable beer - no special occasion needed.

Growler pour - picked up at Hill Farmstead. Pours a golden amber. Strong hoppy aroma. Light bodied for a DIPA. Low bitterness. Flavor really comes through. Clean finish. Great.

*2/17/2014 750ml growler poured into a Alchemist stemless glass. A~ hazy copper orange, not too pretty haha! nice bubbly head with a lot of lacing. S~ starts with lemon, passion fruit,and grapefruit. followed by earthy, hoppy bitterness. T~ the mosaic hops really shine here, tons of fruit! passion fruit is the most prevalent with under tones of grapefruit, lemon, orange and guava. all of that leads into some nice dank grass, and earthy pine. followed by a really nice honey flavor which surprised me. M~ interesting! thicker than most IPA’s almost like they really did add honey. other than that easy drinking and nicely carbonated. O~ half way through this review i was starting to think, wow... all of my HF hoppy reviews are starting to sound the same haha. but i was really inspired once i took a sip, so much going on here. always excited for more of the Society & Solitude series but would it be horrible to say that i’m more excited about the Excursions series, that ones off to a really great start! i had the pleasure of trying Excursions #1 at a tasting last night for the second time and i was blown away once again. must be that "lemon drop" hop. ohhhh this is a S&S#6 review... opps... haha!

Draught. Pours cloudy pale yellow with a large, foamy white head. Aroma is floral, light pine, some grapefruit-y citrus, light honey, and grass. Taste is light peach, dough, grapefruit, vanilla, earth, very light pineapple, a touch of pine, and a hint of onion. Finish is vanilla and onion. Light-medium body. Soft carbonation. Creamy, fluffy mouthfeel.

Huge mosaic bomb! Appearance is hazy, light golden orange with a fingers worth of head. Aroma is huge tropical fruits, citrus, pine. Flavor fallows the aroma, light berry, and huge tropical fruit up front. Medium body, fairly dry, and smooth bitterness. Incredible mosaic IIPA.

It pours cloudy orange with a small white head. The aroma has creamy pineapple, orange, rich malt and a bit of vanilla. It has a fairly full rich body with soft carbonation. The taste starts out like the aroma, but the finish has citrus, grapefruit zest, spice and mango, but pineapple is still very much on there. Very nice. Thanks to gregwilsonstl for sharing this gem.
