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.

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 (320) - 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.

hrabren (311) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 24, 2015
Everybody’s rating this nowadays, so I’m living up to the trend. Hazy amber with big off white head, diminishes quickly. Fruity hops, orange. Light body, woody aromas, vegetables, sweet. Aromatic and drinkable. Nice fruity finish, no bitterness. Great!

Hrc_Cro (287) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 7, 2015
0.355l bottle. Clear orange color with nice white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, pine, citrus, malt and hops. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter. It is a good beer, but too much honeylike sweetness stops it from being great.
