COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Boat loads of mosaic hops, famous for their hop-tropic punch to the palate, really shine in this seasonal IPA featuring flavours of guava and mango. Subtle IPA bitterness keeps everything fresh for a tasting experience thats symmetrically balanced any way you spin it.

peponi (1762) - Hannover, GERMANY - FEB 7, 2017
Aroma: citrus and herbal notes, gooseberries. Appearance: hazy golden color and white head. Taste: high pine bitterness, citrus notes, slightly stalky, some gooseberries notes, rather dry. Palate: medium body and medium carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: Not so bad IPA, slightly stalky, should be more intensive.

RhetoricalAns (920) - Red Deer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 25, 2017
Pale gold beer, medium foaming white head, excellent retention. Big tropical aroma, mango, pineapple, grapefruit. Medium body and carbonation. Flavours brings some more caramel sweetness along with the tropical fruit upfront. Finish is light to medium bitter and fairly dry. Overall a very nice mosaic brew.

BVery (10124) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JUL 15, 2016
Bomber from the brewery. Clear gold / orange pour with a soapy white head. Tropical fruit, assertive hops, would be money if not for just a hint of skunk in the aroma.

Ma bouteille est un peu vieille donc elle a perdu de son oumf. Tout de mme elle prsente une belle amertume rsineuse avec nuances florales.

RobBestwick (892) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - APR 14, 2015
Bottle. Strong grapefruit and orange peel aroma. Golden in colour with a large and frothy head. Sharp hoppy flavour - lots of grapefruit. Full bodied with strong bitterness in the finish. Not for the feint hearted.

jonas (7397) - Garching b. Mnchen, GERMANY - MAR 4, 2015
Bottle. light hazy golden, offwhite lace. Heavy dank hop aroma , very Wharf St. Medium body, a bit slimy, medium light malt, minty, dank hops, not overly cloying resin though. Interesting.

RCx240 (198) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 7, 2014
Faintly hazy amber, foamy white head, good lacing. Aroma is powerful grapefruit, some resin, and citrus. Taste is sweet caramel and toffee, full bodied, average carbonation, and a lingering grapefruit aftertaste. Pretty good, but the grapefruit is a bit much for me.
