COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is not your average IPA. From the incredible nose, to the amazing finish, this IPA is one that both session drinkers and beer nerds alike will love.

 We’re full on board the hopwagon with this big American-style IPA. However, it is not designed to blow your head off with overpowering hop bitterness. Instead, Mosaic IPA is an extremely well-balanced brew that showcases its unique hop aroma and flavor. ​

This beer gets its name from a new hop variety named “Mosaic,” which is predominantly where the immense, raw hop aroma and flavor is derived. Mosaic IPA has a noticeable malt backbone to help soften the high level of hop bitterness and flavor, while keeping the body fairly light. 

The word "Mosaic" is also representative of the diverse range of individuals that make up our community. It’s perfect in every way!

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Bottle and tap. 8.6%? I was not prepared for this. Aroma of mango and passion fruit. First hop forward IPA I’ve had so far in dallas. Juicy mango, cherry, orange flavor. Delicious.

On draft at small craft pub in Ft Worth - can’t recall the name, but, hey, it was late! Poured a rich foggy dark yellow...decent head. Nose? Can you say grapefruit? Grapefruit lingered thru the whole drink....do love Mosaic hops! Booze was there but not overpowering. Excellent beer...wish they had it in Chicago.

Pours a reddish copper, nice head and lacing. Slightly sweet malt, then hops show up. Bigger than I thought, it drinks lighter than 8.6%
