3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from Giannone, 4/16/13
Aroma: The nose of this one is fairly hoppy, some citrus, pine/resin, spice, and some rye bread
Appearance: Pours a dark reddish/mahogany color with a small beige head and some spotty lace
Flavor: The rye certainly comes out more in the flavor, as the taste starts quite bready/malty, and then hops show up mid-palate and carry through to a finish that has more of a resiny bitterness
Palate: Medium bodied, has a bit of stickiness early, average carb, and a long, clean, dry finish
I thought this was a pretty interesting beer. It has a really very solid nose that is reminiscent of a many hoppy Reds. The taste is a bit different, as the rye really comes out, and I also detected what I believe to be some small flaws, but overall the flavor works pretty well. It also has a nice look and feel to it. I enjoyed what they did here.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Spirits Lacey. Pours out an odd light brown/reddish color with a small, fading light tan head. Aroma is of caramel, grainy rye, toffee, some odd floral bitterness, light citrus. Taste is caramel malts, toffee, spicy rye grains, and some more of that floral/light citrus bitterness. Body is slightly thin and although a solid beer not really the malt profile I’d choose to highlight a single hop. Them again that may not have been what they were going for.

Sampled thanks to Nate on Slutfest Eve. Clear red pour with slight tan head. Smells delightfully hoppy citrus grass slightly stinky. Tastes mango citrus fruit with a catty aftertaste. Really digging it actuallly.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours dark red with a very small kahki head. Very creamy looking head and lots of lacing. Sweet citrus and pine aroma, though a bit faint. Flavor is mostly straight bitter up front. Turns into a floral back end and some caramelly malt flavor. Bit of spicey dryness. Medium bodied woth medium carbonation. A bit of lingering citrus. Nice red ale, nothing mind blowing but a nice beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Growler from Draft Filling Station. Deep ruby red pour with a somewhat dense off white head. Aroma was full of peachy hops with notes of spicy rye. Some pine and some citrus in there too. Flavors were citrusy, caramel, light spice, maybe some black tea. Hops oils were very prevalent. Lighter mouthfeel, somewhat creamy. A touch of heat in the finish. Interesting and nice.

Pours deep ruby red with a daaaaannnk aroma of Mosaic. I cant wait to brew with this hop. Palate is smooth rye with big hop bitterness of a well balanced IPA, citrus and grapefruit are big. A great job on a single hop by Terrapin.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle. Served in a snifter. Pours a caramel color with a white head. Tinge of malt on the nose; the hop aroma hop isn’t as prevalent as I expected. Thin mouthfeel. Dry. The bitterness on this IPA is in the middle--very little bitterness in the finish. A drinkable IPA but not one I’d seek out.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ Trapeze Pub. Pours a darker brown with a sticky tan that left minimal lacing. Nose is resiny, earthy, pine and some noticable rye spice. Fresh spearmint and spruce-like resiny aroma. taste shows off some different characteristics that nose. Tropical, mango, tangerine with some lingering rye spiciness. Medium full mouthfeel. I like the uniqueness of the Mosaic hop.
