Sisyphus Bottlecap Mosaic

Sisyphus Bottlecap Mosaic. 6.9% ABV. 61 IBU.

Crystal clear, pale gold coloring, slim, but staying ivory head.

Aroma pops out of the glass and goes screaming down the nose. Pineapple, tangerine, lemon, grapefruit, a dazzling cornucopia of hoppiness. Love it. Flat out gorgeous.

In the mouth: big hops on the palate, lean malt body. Some slight sweetness at the bottom, topped off with hop bitterness. Smooth stuff, exquisite drinking-ness. (I got tired of the word: "Drinkability.") Right on IPA. Pale ale? Nah, IPA. Big time bitterness, clean and crisp and damned delicious.  Another good beer, And you can drink it. Over and over again.
