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 didnít 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 itís 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.

Dark orange color with medium white head. Aroma of mostly pine there is citrus, malt and hops. Taste is sweet and bitter with bitter aftertaste. Not bad IPA, but nothing that was WOW.

Everybodyís rating this nowadays, so Iím 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!

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.

natejgood (423) - Bozeman, Montana, USA - MAY 13, 2015
Pours a clear medium golden with an off white head. For some reason the head doesnít look great. It is made of pretty large bubbles and is reminiscent of Busch Light or something. Nice citrus aroma that smells very tasty. Flavor is slightly hoppy and bitter with some honey and wheat. Pretty good flavor for a session beer. More non-hop flavor than many session IPAs I have tried.

Benzai (10199) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAY 5, 2015
Bottle @ home. Slightly unclear orange color, huge thick white head that lasts for a long time. Aroma is malts and quite fruity with fruity hops and tropical fruit influences. Taste malts, light to moderately hoppy, lightly floral, some fruit hops and general fruityness but not as clearly present as in the aroma. Soft bitterness, easy drinkable, suitable carbonation. Decent. [Note: probably way better when fresh, unfortunately I had a bottle with a best before date of July 2015].

Fatehunter (1647) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - APR 19, 2015
Pours a finger and half of head on a hazy dark straw body. The aroma is sappy pine with some nice pineapple and mango. The taste has a strong pine bitterness upfront, then mellows out toward the end. The texture is crisp. Nice.
