Bottle. Ruby red/amber. Aroma is rye malty spice with citrus hops. The taste follows suit with emphasis on the red malts, a little caramel and pine too. The finish adds sweet peaches and apricot. Medium rich mouthfeel. A very balanced brew highlighting various flavors and textures. Good stuff. Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Thanks, Mark! Gradient from burnt copper to orange at the bottom with a quickly fleeting, off-beige head. Lots of juicy peach, tangerine, & mild grapefruit in the aroma; a bold, citrusy base with a sharp hint of pine & hop oil coming in late. Very, very mild malt & rye in the nose, if any. Taste starts with a danky hop bitterness, wet hemp oil & a good bit of bitter orange peel. Rye rushes in mid-palate; very dry & sucking the moisture from your mouth instantly, leaving you with a burnt toast aftertaste mouth coating. Lingering hints of earthy, dirty, & grassy hops. Slick, oily mouth feel at first with a superbly dry finish. A nice rye IPA, if only the aroma & the taste were a little more in sync with each other.

Bottle - Fruity with some spice and rye. Dark clear amber with a rich brown frothy head. Sweet malt and fruit with an earthy hoppy and a bit of spice. Interesting and very decent.

Une forte présence fruitée qui rappelle le kool aid et son côté générique sucré. L’amertume est également étrange, un brin sirop pour la toux. qu’est-ce qui s’est passé avec le Mosaic?

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Salvia-psychedelic label on a standard US longneck. Deep, clear, mahogany brew, thin ivory head. Malty, woody, caramel hoppy aroma. Horehoud herbal and tea notes under this whole brew. Pretty dry, tannic-tangy, not fruity or sweet. Tinny, oxidized pumpernickel aftertaste. Rye should only be used to make bread with carraway seeds. ABC, Bull Run.

Aroma of fresh hop pellets. Dank citrus, green pine cone, and rye. Pours red with a nice foamy head. Taste is nice and hoppy but not fresh. Rye, pine, and orange peel. Nice malt makes for a comfortable drink. Really enjoyed it.

The mosaic hops are fantastic in this rye ale. Pours a nice red color. Lots of citrus and grass on the nose. Piney grass and grapefruit citrus on the palate, balanced out with a nice spiciness from the rye. Great IPA.

Courtesy of TheHOFF43. 12oz bottle pours with a clear copper body that has amber hues and supports a thin tan head. The modest aroma offers up ripe red grapes, raspberry gummy bears and some malts, a dash of pine and a sense of earthy tea well off in the background. The taste delivers slivers of malt sweetened fruity hops that are like the nose sort of ripe juicy red grape like. It then moves into a moderate level of resiny pine hop bitterness mixed with malts and a mild drying earthy tea sensation. Tasty indeed.
