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.

adnielsen (9479) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 4, 2014
Bottle @ home, courtesy of Homer 321, I believe. Thanks! Dark reddish orange appearance with a cream colored head. A fair amount of toast and cracker in the nose along with some spicy, herbal hops. Kind of chewy, goopy malty flavor. Hops are kind of dull. Herbal, piney notes. Moderate to high sweetness. Moderate bitterness. This may be a touch old, but I’m still not a huge fan.

AR (1000) - Georgia, USA - APR 4, 2014
This is a full-flavored beer with a medium-heavy body. There is a strong hop flavoring that doesn’t have an offensive bite. Well Blended.

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 1, 2014
Dark amber, thick head, nice mosiac lemon rind kind of aroma. Sweet, fairly chewy crystal and Slightly herbal, and nice hops...moderate bitterness...actually the overload of hops works out for this.

Bottled in virginia. Poured orangey, nice hops and obvious rye. Not bad, but nothing amazing going on here.

New Beer Distributors, NYC 12oz ($3.95): Pours hazy red with beige head. Aroma is pine, tropical fruit, and grapefruit. Taste is quite fruity, moderately bitter, and full of malty rye. Nice smooth mouth feel. Nice fruity finish. Overall, quite a good balance.

obguthr (4100) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAR 26, 2014
Intense pine nose with grapefruit accents. Clear ochre, thick tan head, lacy. Pine and rye flavor, perfectly balanced, for an IPA. Medium body, very soft carbonation. Wow, such a wonderfully well rounded beer, straightforward, sessionable, flavorful, and not overly fruity.

ttutony (704) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 24, 2014
Brown with a reddish tinge. Nice balance between the citrus hops and malt. Would like a little more spicy rye malt character but still a nice brew overall.

Bottle thanks to ygtbsm94 for fbw. Pours a deep dark amber nearly brown with tan rocky head. Nice big hoppy aroma, piney, fresh, green, and lightly citrus. Flavor is a piney, earthy, danky, hop character. Mildly bitter finish...pretty refreshing and tasty.
