What the brewer says

“100 per­cent Mo­saic IPA.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Grassy and herbal with some cit­rus (or­ange peel and grape­fruit) and spicy notes of mint, pep­per, and earthy be­neath. Some green onion and maybe a touch of gar­lic. Some peach on retronasal.” Fla­vor: “Highly bit­ter, but enough resid­ual sweet­ness to make it bal­anced for the style. The or­ange high­lights dance on top of the some­what grassy and green-onion notes with the blend of herbal tones pulling things to­gether. Malt is a sec­ondary thought. Fin­ish isn’t overly bit­ter with a slight sweet­ness on the very end.” Over­all: “Great hops com­plex­ity. If you want to visit the lower lat­i­tudes, this is the beer for you. It will give you that trop­i­cal fruit–mar­ket ex­pe­ri­ence in your mouth. Maybe not for ev­ery­one, but pretty in­trigu­ing.”
