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.

Scopey (11563) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2015
Can thanks to Colin. It pours clear deep amber with a thick yellow-white head. The nose is fresh, piney, juicy, resin, brown bread and stewed orange. The taste is bitter, earthy, pine, resin, varnish, grapefruit, mild toffee, green hops, light soap and some grassy notes with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Good drinkable stuff.

Bready and caramel notes are prominent. Flavor is rye, dank notes are prominent, slight metallic/tinny flavor from the can. Hop bitterness finish. The rye adds a really nice element.

BelgianBeerGal (3672) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAY 4, 2015
Total Wine Orlando can in the Shades of Green hallway. Dark amber pour with a nice off-white head. The aroma is wet hops, rye spice and almost a sweet, syrupy note. Bold flavor that is seriously hard to place. Light bitterness that lingers. Finishes with almost a nuttiness. Unique but maybe not my favorite.

nimbleprop (7006) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 4, 2015
16oz pour at RFD DC pours a hazy orange red with some frothy, lacing white head. Nose is solid, lots of tropical fruit, guava and mango mostly, some dankness, some chive, a little red pear. Flavor has more of that tropical fruit, some tangerine too, guava, a clear malt presence, almost a fresh cream thing that I get with Mosaic beers. Crisp, bitter, and quite tasty.

This is a red rye IPA and is full of hops. This beer is red and has a decent palate. The aroma is not noticable.
