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.

Aroma is hoppy but has a very earthy malt. Color is a dark brown with a small white ring. Taste is hop but lacks most else kinda like a void where good flavor or good hop should be. Palate is lacking hop finish but has a stale sweetness.

Split a 22oz bottle amongst friends. Poured a reddish brown color with a off-white head. Aroma was sweet grapefruit citrus notes, some spicy rye character. Flavor was caramel notes dancing amongst grapefruits and oranges. Rye was welcome to the party and contributed some spice character to it.

LinusStick (2757) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 20, 2013
A decent rye beer. Aroma was decent. Strong rye bread and bread crust aromas. Pour was stunning. Deep dark murky red with a one finger light tan head. This is the nicest color of red I’ve ever seen in a beer. Taste was average. Strong rye flavors dominate with earthy hops in the back. A weird malt/grapefruit combination is there and borderlines muddled. Nice strong carbonation round the beer out. Spicy, semi-bitter and easy to drink.

Brownish amber pour. Light fruit notes, rye malt is bready and crusty. The flavor is metallic, fruit, not super malty. Low bitterness.

On tap at Taco Mac. Reddish copper with thin head. Floral rye malt aroma with citrus - grapefruit. Taste brings caramel, citrus, pine, hops. Really well balanced. Some dough. Smooth flavor, no lingering aftertaste. Mouthfeel is a little on the thin side. Overall, very tasty beer.
