COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Volume 19: Mosaic Single Hopped Rye Ale. Brewer ďSpikeĒ 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 ďMosaicĒ 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.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4785) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 23, 2013
Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a medium nut brown color with a small foamy tan head that lingered but left minimal lacing. The aroma was fruity and floral hops with a touch of pine and perfume. The flavor was dryish and astringent with a sour piney presence, perfume, floral hops and a hint of pepper. Very long very astringent finish of perfume and floral hops. Moderately full bodied. Meh.

Treebs (872) - , Illinois, USA - SEP 29, 2013
22 oz bottle served in a Great Divide cervoise. A: Pours a semi clear reddish amber color with a creamy, off-white head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thick film that leaves stick sheets of lace down the glass. S: Definitive rye on the nose with some grassy and spicy notes to it. Light citrus grapefruit with some herbal and piney notes. T: Lots of rye spice with a cracker malt sweetness. Grassy herbal from the rye Iím missing that distinct Mosaic hop character. Itís all but faded at this point. Just a light piney note remains. The finish has this off-putting iron like quality to it as well. M: Medium low carbonation with a medium body. Odd finish. O: The hops have all but faded and the rye was too dominate. The off-putting metallic finish didnít help at all. Serving type: bottle 07-04-2013

Bottle. Hazy deep amber color, large fluffy tan head. Aroma of dank toasted caramel, light spice. Taste is malt forward with light spice.

On tap, WoB. Dark amber pour with a thin, foamy head. Balanced malt and hops aroma. Rye spice up front, then some hops bitterness and a sweet malt finish. Good mix of flavors.

unclemattie (4119) - Georgia, USA - SEP 18, 2013
Vol 19. 22oz bottle, gold foil wrapped. Deep copper color, nice lace, tan head. Roasted caramel, toasted malts, earthy nose. Hints of chocolate malt flavor. Floral hops. Whoa, tropical fruit notes, love Mosaic. Finishes with a peppery tingle, spicy rye, sugary malts. Very fun, best Terrapin in a while. (3823)

Pours a nice dark amber with a beige head. Has a nice subtle hop and malt aroma. Goes down smooth with a subtle bite. Has a nice clean finish

Gachupines (850) - USA - SEP 8, 2013
Red with a thin white head. Aroma is roasted malt and mild pine hops. A little hit of resin at the edge. Flavor is mild pine hops with a resinous texture and a strong mildly sweet malt finish. A bit of sharpness from the rye comes through in the aftertaste. Reminds me of their Big Hoppy Monster, but a little less over hopped. Wife: 4

changeup45 (1715) - Mount Dora, Florida, USA - SEP 2, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 11, 2013 This pours a deep amber color with a moderate khaki head on top that laced pretty well. Thereís some light spicy rye, grain, and toasty flavors, but mostly itís a mix of resinous hops and toffee malt. Thereís perhaps a splash of citrus but itís a pretty straight forward hop/malt combo. Sweet initially before drying out a bit towards the finish with some bitterness. Meh. Not a bad beer at all but it just didnít really do it for me.

Bitter light bit light hop aroma. Nothing special sweet. Thin fading head. Eh. Average. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MrBunn (2438) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 21, 2013
Bomber. Pours a cloudy reddish brown that lets some light through, but is opaque. Head is tan and fairly decent, but dies to a film fairly quickly. Aromas are interesting... kind of a tangy rye quality to them with a little bit of resiny hops (not what I was expecting from "Mosaic.") Flavor is heavily grainy with a definite hop bitterness, but little of that pear flavor I pick up from Mosaic in my own beers and others I have tried with the hop. Itís a decent beer, but does little to let the headline hop shine, in my opinion.
