On-tap in my kitchen.

Pours a mirky orange/yellow color, white frothy head, super-sticky lacing, thick ring, and thin cap. Nose is mango-forward, tropical, smooth hops, grass, light pine...really well-balanced and smooth. Flavor is lots of mango, pineapple, hops, grassy...perfect balance of hoppy bitterness and sweetness. Body is light to medium, good carbonation, oily finish.

It’s hard to think of another DIPA I would rather drink more of in one session. The alcohol is well-hidden, it’s very-well balanced, and the flavor profile is simply right-on. I have to say, my other favorite easy-drinking DIPA is Heady Topper, and this is superior.

Draught at Armsby Abbey. Big orange pour with lots of citra and hops. Just delicious.

Draft at Armsby Abbey. Pours golden with a white head. Leaves a fair amount of lacing in the glass. Nice citrus and pine notes on the nose and tongue. Finished with a solid amount of bitterness. A perfect riposte after a couple of gueuzes.

This beer is a slightly cloudy orange-gold color with a medium white head that diminishes gradually to a film. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of tropical fruit, herbal hops and malt. Medium body with flavors of pineapple, citrusy hops, caramel malt and a bit of pine. The finish is moderately bitter with a fruity hop aftertaste. Good beer all around.

Hazy pale to golden straw colored pour with a single finger head. Aroma is fantastic. Peaches for days. Medium bodied. Taste is very complex. Peach meets grassy dankness. Finish is dry and bitter. Lots of lace present. A hint of two row malt on the finish. The grain body holds up very nicely to the hops.

Thanks Brennan for sharing the growler! Poured into a snifter showing hazy dark yellow with no head. The nose shows moderately intense passionfruit and light pine. The palate is medium bodied and moderately carbonated. Moderately intense flavours of dank cannabis with lighter notes of pineapple and pine resin and a mid-palate of NE style malt. Practically no bitterness.

Really great clean bitter Mosaic DIPA with tropical fruity qualities and none of this BS Minute Maid cocktail sweetness. Awesome, of course.

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!
