COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When we first got our noses in and hands on the experimental hop, then known only as HBC 369 CV, we knew it was something special. We wanted to make a lower alcohol IPA that didn’t drink like many others we tried. There was good hoppiness to most of them, but the body seemed lacking. We went to work on solving this, and it took a bit of time. When we were finally convinced our session IPA was ready for prime time, HBC 369 had been named: Mosaic.

We employ this chameleon cone -with its exceptional palette of flavors- at each stage in the hopping process. Paul has actually created a lower alcohol session ale with the flavor and body of an American IPA. This beer has developed a following in the active lifestyle crowd, especially with cyclists, but it’s also a great beer when you just want a little more hang-time with your IPA. Dedicated to our hop-loving friend, David Moes, we brew this beer for true hop heads.

Sono particolarmente innamorato e alla ricerca di queste session, e devo dire che questa non mi ha impressionato, anzi solo bevibile.

Harkyto (82) - barcelona, SPAIN - DEC 8, 2015
Color ambar limpio, espuma permanente. Aroma complejo de frutas tropicales, maltas caramelo... Sabor tan complejo como el aroma, equilibrio entre sabor y amargor excelente. En boca resulta muy refrescante y bebible. Gran cerveza!

veceo (994) - CROATIA - SEP 26, 2015
Hazy deep amber color, big white head with nice retention. Lots of lacing. Fruity aroma, slightly piney, malty, some caramel notes also. Solid malty backbone, lots of caramel in taste, pleasant fruitiness, oranges, tropical fruits and similar stuff. Medium body, soft carbonation. Great session IPA.

Diabobale (370) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - SEP 2, 2015
Di colore ambrato opalescente, con schiuma beige pannosa abbondante e lungamente persistente. Al naso tanti sentori di frutta gialla matura (albicocca e pesca) con predominanza però del malto (biscotto e carruba). Al palato la carbonazione è nelle media e il corpo non è proprio esile nonostante so tratti di una session. L’alcol è impercettibile. Al gusto molte note fruttate, dal ripetersi di albicocca e pesca gialla fino alla freschezza dell’ananas e di qualche nota citrica finale (polpa d’arancia). Il finale è secco con un buon amaro, anche se evanescente, che tende al resinoso.

Sebilinz (1372) - Linz, AUSTRIA - AUG 15, 2015
Bottle. Amber body with white head. Aroma is fruity with hops and pines. Taste is malts with honey and some fruits. Aftertaste is nice bitter with some malts. Nice session ipa.

HammerTroll (1018) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 8, 2015
Hazy orange color with minimal white head. Small hop bomb, some biscuit, citrus and malt. Taste is mostly tangerine, slightly bitter and sweet. Thin body, soft carbonation. Very enjoyable session IPA. //stellabeershop
