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.

Draft. Red pour with tan head. Slight mosaic aromas. Hop flavor follows aroma, has a touch of sweet malt. Drinkable hoppy brew, just not my cup o tea.

Amber color with a foamy yellowish head. Big hop resin nose, with something dank. Fruity notes with hop resin, tropical fruit and a really long hop candy finish. Nice hoppy beer.

A pretty interesting IPA that is largely piney with some slight spiciness and citrus. The rye and biscuity malt overpowers the hops a bit.

Nice lil combo between the rye and the hops. A Almost compliments the other as neither standout. I expected more of a strong rye presence but the mosaic hops kinda diluted the rye which could be a positive or a negative depending on your viewpoint .

brigg (509) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 22, 2014
(Tap at city tap house in DC) Special cask version. cloudy copper body with a small tan head. Citrus orange aroma. Ginger and clove are a little overpowering in the flavor, interesting though, god bitterness. Body is a bit thin but silky. (Bottle) Brownish red body, small off white head. Pine hop aroma with sweet fruity notes. Thin body, a little oily. Bitter, pine resin, caramel notes. Flavor doesn’t capture everything in the aroma, especially the fruit/floral notes.

Un grand verre ambré sur lequel s’installe une mousse beige qui tisse une dentelle beige. Un nez qui est gros. Pas dans le sens d’absurde mais dans le sens de chargé. Des fruits tropicaux, des oranges, des épices, des conifères, des malts bruns et une tonne de seigle. Le nez est un pain liquide. Sur les papilles, le Mosaic est terriblement juteux tandis que les céréales utilisées s’expriment profondément. En bouche, le corps qui est bien dodu révèle une texture très épaisse. L’effervescence apporte une facilité. En finale, des notes de poivre et de fruits s’extirpent de la présence maltée.

On tap at pour house, pours brown with small off white head. Aroma is skunk, fruit, and fresh hops. Taste is awesome, lots of dank mosaic and simcoe, and other notes of blueberry, and pine. The mosaic made the beer taste like blueberry rye jam yo. Refreshing and crushable.

Strangely dark and heavy body but the hop aroma and flavor is quite pleasant!

12 oz 2014 bottle served in a lager glass. Not terribly familiar with this hop variety but I get a clear impression that the rye grain is a great match for this hop. Simultaneously seems balanced yet very spicy. Impossible to separate the hop flavors from the rye flavors. Spicy notes linger on in the hoppy aftertaste.

12 ounce bottle. Thanks Erick! Pours golden red with a nice beige head. Aroma of citrus, pine, and malt. Taste is grapefruit, tropical fruit, pine, malt, and rye. Very nice.
