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.

DrSilverworm (9108) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 3, 2014
12oz bottle, thanks to Homer321. Best by notch indicates the 1st week of the 7th month of 2014. ABV is labeled 6.2%. Pretty much totally hazy dark red color. Thin ring of khaki head. Leaves pretty decent ridges of lace. Medium to bigger body. Lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Some tropical fruit, metallic notes up front. Pine, spicy rye notes. Bigger bitter taste. Light sweet. OK rye IPA. Might be some musty notes of oxidization in the nose. More hop bitterness than hop aromatic here. Big metallic in the finish makes this hard to drink.

Pours deep red, big head, with a nice, simple hop character. Rye spicyness is understated.

Daytonbeer (710) - Ohio, USA - MAY 29, 2014
Pours Amber and red with white head and some lacing. Aroma of rye, hops, and caramel. Taste is the same with some earthy/piney notes and burnt sugar. Very nice.

DocJitsu (1376) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - MAY 29, 2014
Pours a mostly clear amber with a one-finger, light tan head. A well-blended dark roast malt and citrusy and grassy hop character are noted in the bouquet. Not a whole lot to say about the texture. Full body and gets a little astringent at the finish. Definitely has depth and beefiness in the flavor imparted by that same interaction of roasted malt and grassy and citrus hops.

jhamp9 (1388) - Corinth, Texas, USA - MAY 26, 2014
Reddish brown pour with an off white head. Aroma is piney resinous hops with some rye bread. Taste is rye, pine, resin, and earthy. Really nice clean bitterness. Easy to drink.

John25 (1246) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - MAY 14, 2014
Bottle. Ruby red/amber. Aroma is rye malty spice with citrus hops. The taste follows suit with emphasis on the red malts, a little caramel and pine too. The finish adds sweet peaches and apricot. Medium rich mouthfeel. A very balanced brew highlighting various flavors and textures. Good stuff. Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - MAY 13, 2014
Bottle: Thanks, Mark! Gradient from burnt copper to orange at the bottom with a quickly fleeting, off-beige head. Lots of juicy peach, tangerine, & mild grapefruit in the aroma; a bold, citrusy base with a sharp hint of pine & hop oil coming in late. Very, very mild malt & rye in the nose, if any. Taste starts with a danky hop bitterness, wet hemp oil & a good bit of bitter orange peel. Rye rushes in mid-palate; very dry & sucking the moisture from your mouth instantly, leaving you with a burnt toast aftertaste mouth coating. Lingering hints of earthy, dirty, & grassy hops. Slick, oily mouth feel at first with a superbly dry finish. A nice rye IPA, if only the aroma & the taste were a little more in sync with each other.

Ferris (8965) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 13, 2014
Bottle - Fruity with some spice and rye. Dark clear amber with a rich brown frothy head. Sweet malt and fruit with an earthy hoppy and a bit of spice. Interesting and very decent.
