COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
2XSMASH is the newest in our line of single malt and single hop India Pale Ales, brewed with Mosaic hops and Special pale malt. Even simplified to one variety of hop and one type of malt, it is amazing how complex the flavor is. Mosaic hops are known for their luxurious tropical citrus notes like passionfruit and work absolutely brilliantly with the richness of Special pale malt. Cheers!

draft, floral fruit aroma, thick off white foam head, well balanced and complex brew. Citrus, black pepper and bready flavors, interesting and nice taste.

shigadeyo (3797) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 26, 2017
11/26/2017 (12 fl oz can): Toffee and Mosaic hops, but wet/muted rather than the usual bright/vibrant that I typically associate with Mosaic, orange candy; hazy orange color with a frothy off-white head; flavor is sadly much like the aroma, with some weak Mosaic hop flavor, but it's mostly caramel/toffee malt, very little bitterness, no alcohol detectable in the flavor despite the high alcohol, no depth or Mosaic complexity; medium to medium-full body, very smooth; Too much malt or just too big? Either way, the hops are muted and the Mosaic just doesn't pop or exhibit all of it's varied flavors like it should (there is some deep Mosaic hoppiness there, but it seems to be smothered by the malt). Very disappointing overall.

Can. Earthy pine/grapefruit peel, tangerine, and caramel malt aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Moderately sweet orange caramel malt, and moderately bitter pine/grapefruit peel flavor. Good body. Hops a bit subdued - great balance though.

SolarSam (96) - Interlaken, New York, USA - OCT 20, 2017
A rich on the tongue and a clear beer for flavor. Though not my favorite local beer, a box combination brought this brew to me. Would I be disrespectful if I described this brew as ‘nutty’ without a particular reference to a nut? “Clear” is another word that comes to mind (tongue)..., maybe I like Mosaic. Gotta look into that.... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours amber with a film of light tan head. Aroma is bitter sappy citrus with a moderately sweet malt feel. Flavor is initially bitter but then rolls off the palate silky smooth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

malvrich (354) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 26, 2017
8 week old can from mixed 15 > tulip
A: Clear tawny orange gold with a finger of tight tan foam, retaining very well and leaving patchy lace.
S: Mostly malty smell of caramel and honeysuckle with a little orange or tangerine.
T: Sweet baked bread and some alcohol, with a hint of candied orange barely coming through. Oddly a bit like fruitcake or rumcake. A slight woody dryness to finish.
M: Medium heavy body, low to average carbonation and slightly resinous finish.
O: Not bad if you like boozy malty DIPAs. Not a favorite style though I am enjoying the 3 from the pack.

3.1
DrunkSanta410 (979) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 14, 2017
Pale golden pour. Floral, piney aroma with a bit of faint citrus. Taste is earthy, pine, bitter pine resin, faint caramel maltiness. Medium body and carbonation. Solid.
