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.

Poured from a bomber into a pint glass. Nice sticky head, very pretty red coloring with a steady trickle of bubbles. Aroma is dominated by hops, with an intermingling of caramel malt. Flavor is a really nice Irish red malt base with spicy rye notes. Honestly hoppy reds just don’t do it for me. Would have preferred the beer sans all the mosaic.

maekchu (2733) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAR 2, 2014
Bottle from Village Wine and Spirits in Athens. Nice hoppy and floral nose with light fruit. Very pretty reddish brown color, tan head. Light pepper malt initial / gentle earthy bittering / good balance with a trail of sweet fruit. Thin-medium body. Very good. Red rye seems to offer less pepper than regular. The Mosaic is present but not so strong.

Pours a chestnut color with a decent off white head. Aroma is rye, pine. Taste is nice bitterness up front, smooth rye spiciness, slight pine, tailing off into an earthy aftertaste. Interesting set of flavors.

Draft. Red pour with tan head. Slight mosaic aromas. Hop flavor follows aroma, has a touch of sweet malt. Drinkable hoppy brew, just not my cup o tea.

Amber color with a foamy yellowish head. Big hop resin nose, with something dank. Fruity notes with hop resin, tropical fruit and a really long hop candy finish. Nice hoppy beer.

A pretty interesting IPA that is largely piney with some slight spiciness and citrus. The rye and biscuity malt overpowers the hops a bit.

CJ_Pain (205) - Georgia, USA - FEB 24, 2014
Nice lil combo between the rye and the hops. A Almost compliments the other as neither standout. I expected more of a strong rye presence but the mosaic hops kinda diluted the rye which could be a positive or a negative depending on your viewpoint .

brigg (549) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 22, 2014
(Tap at city tap house in DC) Special cask version. cloudy copper body with a small tan head. Citrus orange aroma. Ginger and clove are a little overpowering in the flavor, interesting though, god bitterness. Body is a bit thin but silky. (Bottle) Brownish red body, small off white head. Pine hop aroma with sweet fruity notes. Thin body, a little oily. Bitter, pine resin, caramel notes. Flavor doesn’t capture everything in the aroma, especially the fruit/floral notes.

Un grand verre ambré sur lequel s’installe une mousse beige qui tisse une dentelle beige. Un nez qui est gros. Pas dans le sens d’absurde mais dans le sens de chargé. Des fruits tropicaux, des oranges, des épices, des conifères, des malts bruns et une tonne de seigle. Le nez est un pain liquide. Sur les papilles, le Mosaic est terriblement juteux tandis que les céréales utilisées s’expriment profondément. En bouche, le corps qui est bien dodu révèle une texture très épaisse. L’effervescence apporte une facilité. En finale, des notes de poivre et de fruits s’extirpent de la présence maltée.
