COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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

UPDATED: SEP 11, 2013 This pours a deep amber color with a moderate khaki head on top that laced pretty well. There’s some light spicy rye, grain, and toasty flavors, but mostly it’s a mix of resinous hops and toffee malt. There’s perhaps a splash of citrus but it’s 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 didn’t 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

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. It’s a decent beer, but does little to let the headline hop shine, in my opinion.

Bottle from Bruisin Ales. Pours dark brown with a thin brown head. Definitely get some of the rye on the nose. The rye seems to be competing with the hop notes on the tongue with the hop winning a slightly pyrrhic victory.

Sampled during CBC 2013 and again from a 22oz bomber. Reddish pour with a small khaki head. Grapefruit, a bit of spicy bread, and some citrus. Similar flavor with a touch more malt/caramel presence. Not bad.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2013 Pours a deep amber and has a sweet grain smell. The flavor is fruity, complex and has a tangy afterbite. It feels smooth on the tongue. I like this one.

The aroma is malty and hoppy. The appearance is amber with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall it’s good but nothing special.

I’m really getting a tea type of flavor with the tannis, and mouth feel. the hops are nice and bitter. the beer feels like its meant to be a session, but its a bit too hoppy and strong to be a multiple session.
