33 cL bottle at home. Pours hazy orange with a medium white head. Aroma has lots of yellow fruits, apricot, peach, some red fruits and citrus. Taste also has quite some yellow fruits with apricot and a medium bitter finish. Medium body and carbo. Nice. McNeillR (2315) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 27, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 12, 2015 Pale golden haze, visible carbonation and a frumpy white head. Eggy onion, rich white berry, limes in a plastic bag/Capri Sun sweet fruitiness. Initial taste is a swell of bitterness and dried pineapple aiding drinkability. Then mulching pine and purring grapefruit. In the background there’s a melon and mango tussle, overall a real tropical meldey without being overly sweet or cheapened by the ABV. Is actually a bit thinned out, scrabbling bitterness on the finish but superb to get this performance from a single hop.

Bottle, Cornelius, Edinburgh, Bottle On: 04.03.14, ABV: 6.9%
Preceeding the Double Mosiac, bit more appley and an eyeful more bitterness. Sweeter, not as dense and 0.1% nod on the ABV. Again, Cornelius but 15/07 and drank 12/09 despite being bought yesterday. Up a notch though.
