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.

Dark amber color with an off white head. Aroma contains some citrus, dark fruit, cherries, and caramel. The flavor is somewhat bitter but also malty. There are IPA elements with the pine and citrus but also some cherries, caramel, and molasses element. Well balanced beer. Nice!

Bottle. Pours light clear brown with little off white head and no lacing. Smell is amazing fresh grapefruit, hints of rye, chocolate hint of orange, roasted malt. Taste is super fresh picked grapefruit and even has the slight sour tang after a bight of grapefruit, interesting semi sweet chocolate and rye spice notes, orange peel, roasted malt. Medium body, overall great mouthfeel, balance. This was pretty interesting, really enjoyed this. Showcases the mosaic beautifully.

MadRobin (2288) - Silver Spring, USA - NOV 19, 2013
Poured from 22 oz. bottle. Clear, dark orange red with a 2-finger darkish khaki head and very good lacing. Initial aroma of musty hops, fresh green vegetables, bread and herbs. When I came back to the beer after a phone call , the initial mustiness had cleared and a sweet fruity aroma prevailed with rye, peach, pine, caramel, passion fruit and citrus. Taste of rye, caramel, citrus, peach, tropical fruit and earthy herbal hops. Medium body and medium/low carbonization. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bottle, possibly an aged bottle. but even the maltiness seemed tame. caramel malt are majority flavor but still rather light. Minor bitterness, boring amber.

On draft at the Brass Tap, poured an amberish brown color with aromas of rye and grass. Flavors are rye, light spice, some hops, and grassy taste, weird aftertaste.
