Can from Csakajosor, Budapest. Hazy orange yella. Big resin and pine aroma. Some fruity notes like peach, but mostly big hoppy pine and honey. Finish is fruity but also some nice bitter hop. Really cool iipa.

Can at home. There's a lot of potential here -- it smells amazing, with a lot of hop aroma busting out of the can -- but it is too sweet and malty. In the end, it tasted like an overpowering combination of candy sugar and grapefruit.

330 ml can as "Mosaic IIPA" bought at HK Brewcraft in Central.

Looks: Transluent orange honey colourl; Two finger head with crumpety off-white foam which last for 3 minutes; Beauiful sticky lacing with very slight carbonation.

Aroma: Very fragrant full Ale malt, with strong orange, strong tangerines, citrus, caramel, honey, light candied fruits, strong floral, sugar, spices, biscuits, lemon and grass. Complex and nice!

Taste: Mid to strong sweet rich Ale malt, with strong citrus peels, oranges, tropical fruits, caramel, floral, molasses, resins, spices, herbs, dry biscuits, lime, strong bitter hops and strong fresh grass. Very pleasant!

Body: Close to full body, Thick, slick and oozy palate.

Mouth Feel: Full Ale maltyness in a viscous background. Fairly dynamic and not too sluggish. Hoppy strong citrus peels to start, with notable oranges and tropical fruits mixed with medium sweetness, so nice! Flowery and resin oozy with spicy herbs and fruity lime to round. Heavenly!

Hoppiness: Strong orange, tangerines, citrus, honey, light candied fruits, strong floral, spices, lemon and grass in nose. Strong citrus peels, oranges, tropical fruits, floral, resins, spices, herbs, lime and fresh grass in taste; Bitterness is very strong for a lasting, high astringent sweet-bitter herbal malty finish.

After Taste: Dry. Fruity oozy and strong bitter to mouth.

Comments: The massive dose of Mosaic is doing this one real wonder - fragrant orangey aroma, strong citrus fruity grass taste, rounded with strong oozy limey hoppiness. Out of the 4 single-hop Mikkeller IIPA I’ve had (Cascade, Citra, Simcoe, and Mosaic), this is by far the best. Highly Recomended!

A 330ml can with a best before date of 15th November 2017. Poured into a Mikkeller tasting glass. It was a lightly hazy dark golden orange colour with a two finger white head with good retention and left nice lacing. Aromas of nice pineapple, pine, citrusy orange, peach and hints of caramel. Tastes of bittersweet candied pineapple, pine and lemon tea on top of sweet caramel malt. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall tasty and enjoyable. Easily the best out of Cascade, Citra and Simcoe.

Can from Brewcraft, drank with three of the other Mikkelle Single Hop IIPA series: Cascade, Citra and Simcoe. Pours a clear copper with a fizzy white head. Smells of toasty earthy hop, light tropical and passion fruit, light pepper. Taste is grassy toasty hop, medium pepper, booze. My favourite of the 4: bitter, complex, smooth.

HKdIPA (841) - HONG KONG - JUL 29, 2017
Can from Brewcraft at home - along with Cascade, Citra, Simcoe. This one in the middle clarity-wise, very similar to Simcoe. Dull golden. Seems like it could be fresher than the others but who knows. Sudsy white head. Aroma is very similar to Simcoe but danker - more ripe tropical fruit, blueberry in its sweet and tartness, (maybe power of suggestion), very juicy. Best aroma of the bunch I think. Taste follows. Tropical fruit, citrus, bitter pith, juiciness. More juicy where the Simcoe is more zesty. But both have both. Favorite of the bunch.
