Appearance (5%): Poured hazy light orange into a pint glass. Unfiltered. White head, virtually no lacing. 4.25/5

Taste (40%): Slight earthy/dank to start, transitioning to citrus peel and berry notes. Aftertaste is mostly tropical citrus peel that engulfs the mouth. 4.5/5

Overall (20%): An excellent IPA. Crush: Mosaic brings an assertive citrus fruity aftertaste, drinking easy for a 7% brew. Although I got to this one later than I would have liked, it was worth the wait. 4.5/5
