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.

Bottle to glass. Pours a clear light brown mahogany color with a small light tan head. Aroma is a wonderful piney, spicy, fleshy fruit, tropical fruits hops, with a hint of rye. Taste is moderately bitter with a strange funk to it that lingers long into the finish. Rye much more present in the flavor than the aroma. Other than the strange funky notes in the flavor, a pretty decent beer.

Bottle. Clear, medium amber-brown. Medium head with a lot of lace. Nice grapefruit taste and aroma. Even though I’m not crazy about IPAs this one is not bad.

Inviting tropical aroma with a light tan head and ruby red color. Dominating bitterness with spicy notes in the initial taste that lingers. Mellows with tropical fruit flavors dominating as it warms up. Peach notes in the aftertaste.

Several pints on tap. Shiny and clear reddish copper with a disc of cream above. Nose is leafy tea, caramel and resin. Tastes of resin, orange toffee, tea leaf and spicy toast. Light-medium body has low-medium carbonation and a nice dry finish that keeps this one pretty sessionable.

Shag (2584) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - FEB 1, 2014
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!
