10 oz at the brewery. Pours a beautifully clear, vibrant red hue with a frothy white head. Say what you want about Station 26, but they make gorgeous looking beers. The aroma reveals what Mosiac can really do. The object of this beer obviously was to show the range of mango, tangerine and papaya achieved by this one hop and it couldn’t be done any better. The flavor is perfectly clean with rich, juicy tropical fruit all over. The finish is like orange peels with papaya and mango hanging around. These guys pretty much have the IPA thing owned. I loved this beer, and while it is amazing how much depth you can get from one hop, their other IPAs are testaments to how good a little variety of hops can be.
At Denver fire station no. 26 with Stephen. Pours bronze with huge melon notes, canteloupe, kiwi, mild hops. Taste is fruity kiwi, offputting earthy hops. Steve_0 (3818) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 28, 2014
On tap at the brewery. Pour is slightly hazy orange with a huge frothy white head and great lacing. Sweet tangerine, fresh cut grass, orange peel, mango, sourdough, and honeydew in the aroma. Taste is big melon rind, honeydew, sweet tangerine, papaya, marmalade, and dough with a medium bitter finish. Sweet juicy ripe and fruity IPA.
