Shared at RBWG. Rye, pine, orange , citrus in nose and taste. Not as juicy and melon-y as some mosaic beers I’ve had. Good bitter balance Still good stuff.

Pine and citrus on the aroma with notes of caramel. Appearance is a clear light brown with a reddish hue and an off white head. In the flavor the hops clash with caramel malts and lead to an odd flavor in the taste of nuts, citrus and pine. Mouthfeel is medium with medium carbonation. Overall, I dumped the beer. Mosaic hops don't work in a red ale.

From the 12oz can. Pours a deep red with a thick off white head. Huge nose of citrus pine melon. Taste is smooth malt with some spiciness, caramel and citrus melon notes. Really unique and tasty.

Nice extra from westmeister. Thanks, West! Deep copper color. Great nose of spicy rye and hops, light garlic, citrus fruit. Full bodied, incredibly smooth, nice rustic quality, spice, orange citrus, light dank finish. Satisfying, smooth, and complex at the same time.

Great brew. This one is quite balanced and very enjoyable. The mosaic hops give it the character and the taste.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours dark amber-copper with a one finer tan head with pretty nice lacing. Aroma is of citrus (a lot of citrus), tropical fruits, dank hops, pine,rye, and some light toasted malts. Taste is citrus, tropical fruits, spicy rye, pine, grassy/herbal hops, light bready malts, and some light caramel. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, moderately bitter, medium-long finish. Overall, a very rye IPA that feature one my favorite hops nicely.
