Floral hops for sure. Pours a great color but smells a bit musty. Drinks like a nice IPA and hides it's 9% ABV well. - pixels sent via Beer Buddy on iOS

edwardbass (827) - Illinois, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Hazy yellow color with nearly no head. Aroma is tropical fruit, grassy, citrus, some earthiness. The taste is tropical fruit and citrus hops with a well-balanced malt sweetness. Its "juicy", but not dramatically so. The palate is not as "thick" as I was expecting, and is probably my least favorite aspect of this beer. However, it is an excellent DIPA.

arkurzynski (2378) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 16, 2015
Slightly hazy gold. Nose of candied malt and citrus with melon and grapefruit. Flavor is initially deep pine before giving way to grapefruit and juicy melon and canteloupe. Lingering pine and melon. Unbelievably juicy fruit in flavor.

Bebum (895) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 16, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2016 Slightly hazy gold color, tall white head. Full body, fairly intense flavors, rich mouthfeel, moderate heat, good carbonation, silky texture, long and balanced palate. Very bitter but with enough sweetness in background. Floral hops, resiny, malty, fruity, jatoba, pineapple, Delicious, very fulfilling.

Zeswaft (1755) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 14, 2015
Bottle. Super pungent almost vegetable, B.O. aroma. Laced with tropical fruit. Light gold color. Rich hop character. Mango and pineapple flavors abound. Subtle malt provides some minimal balance. 9% well hidden. I like this a lot. Best imperial mosaic that ive had.

Arcadia (61) - DeLand, Florida, USA - JAN 14, 2015
Bottle from ABC. Pours a sparkling gold with very nice head and some serious lacing. Aromas are floral, pine, grass, and citrus. Taste is rather bitter with a classic hop character and a very long, creamy finish. Full-bodied and extremely satisfying. Acquire.

A bright yellow pour from Avalon Restaurant in WC. Bursting white head coming out of the glass profusely. Hoppy aroma, fruit salad, mango, pineapple, fruit juice, grapes, citrus. Taste is more hop than fruit. Medium bite.
