Volume 19: Mosaic Single Hopped Rye Ale. Brewer “Spike” has an affinity towards rye malt, so this comes a no surprise. Freshly harvested from Hop Breeding Company, LLC in Yakima Valley, the hops used in Side Project 19 “Mosaic” came freshly picked from the fields of Perrault Farms, to our brewery, and into your glass. Known as hop HBC 369 before official naming in 2011, Mosaic is the daughter of Simcoe (YCR 14) and a Nugget-derived male. To get the best of all worlds from this new Humulus lupus, we used 100% Mosaic throughout the brewing process to utilize all the flavor and aroma that this world-class hop has to offer.

Last night with Matt. Nice rye, decent hop kick with plenty of malt character. Had this late in the night so my palate was pretty beat up, I'd like to try it again.

adnielsen (10199) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 4, 2014
Bottle @ home, courtesy of Homer 321, I believe. Thanks! Dark reddish orange appearance with a cream colored head. A fair amount of toast and cracker in the nose along with some spicy, herbal hops. Kind of chewy, goopy malty flavor. Hops are kind of dull. Herbal, piney notes. Moderate to high sweetness. Moderate bitterness. This may be a touch old, but I’m still not a huge fan.

AR (1000) - Georgia, USA - APR 4, 2014
This is a full-flavored beer with a medium-heavy body. There is a strong hop flavoring that doesn’t have an offensive bite. Well Blended.

Oakes (13966) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 1, 2014
Dark amber, thick head, nice mosiac lemon rind kind of aroma. Sweet, fairly chewy crystal and Slightly herbal, and nice hops...moderate bitterness...actually the overload of hops works out for this.

obguthr (4907) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAR 26, 2014
Intense pine nose with grapefruit accents. Clear ochre, thick tan head, lacy. Pine and rye flavor, perfectly balanced, for an IPA. Medium body, very soft carbonation. Wow, such a wonderfully well rounded beer, straightforward, sessionable, flavorful, and not overly fruity.
