"Double Dry Hopped Double Mosaic Daydream is an Oat Cream Imperial IPA similar to Double Mosaic Dream, but brewed with oats and lactose sugar. Mosaic at it's juiciest and creamiest."
Pours a dark yellow color with a murky body and two fingers of white head.
The aroma is an enticing bouquet of tangerines, blueberries, and Juicy Fruit gum. A dessert-like sherbet aroma adds serious sweetness. In the back there is grassy bitterness and some black pepper.
A lot more bitterness on the taste and it retains that grassy hop flavor from the aroma. Light orange peel and more tangerine contribute to the fruity notes and it tastes light and even refreshing at times. More chewing gum or bubble gum like the aroma and a bit of that aforementioned black pepper is here as well. The orange creme and sherbet is dialed down from the nose, but while here it still makes for an orange candy taste. A wheat or oat malty flavor starts to come into play near the back end, but the finish goes back to some more sweet citrus.
Mouthfeel is creamy, but not as full as I'd expected. It has a lighter body that other big DIPA's, but the soft body is top notch.
DDH Double Mosaic Daydream was packed to the brim with flavors and this one was a celebration of the Mosaic hop in every sense. The lighter-than-normal body was a minor gripe, but everything else about this was stellar.
