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. Pours a subdued red with good lacing and minimal head. Aroma is slight mosaic hops and tons of rye malts. Why are there so many fucking rye malts? Fuck.

Pours a beautiful clear amber with a very dark ruby background. However, the final pour from the bomber is almost opaque with flocculants. Full head and lacing that has very good retention. The nose is a bit subdued, but is toffee, caramel and biscuit over slight alcohol and dark fruit notes. The body is medium and somewhat slick with a normal level of carbonation. The flavor profile is complex, balanced and laid back - it’s there, but doesn’t hit you in the face. This quite drinkable ale begins with the flavors of the nose then flows to the spice characteristics of the rye and mosaic hops. Bitterness is almost imperceptible, but of a citric nature. The finish is clean, not quite crisp, but leaves no aftertaste beyond a few seconds.

Some fruity hops but the rye grain isn’t as prevalent here as in other rye pale ales I’ve had recently. Pours cloudy maroon with good head and lacing, especially on cask. Finishes with light bitterness. Cask at Rustico.

12 oz bottle into a tulip glass. Pours a very deep red, almost a purple. Two fingers of tan foam with excellent lacing. Aroma is sticky piney hops, tropical fruit, and caramel malts. Very sweet and fruity. Taste is fruity hops, pine, and caramel. Little rye spice kick on the end. Smooth and tasty with an underlying sweetness that cuts down on the bitterness. Overall this is damn solid. Lots of pine and tropical fruit with the nice caramel maltiness of a red ale.

Poured from a bomber into a pint glass. Nice sticky head, very pretty red coloring with a steady trickle of bubbles. Aroma is dominated by hops, with an intermingling of caramel malt. Flavor is a really nice Irish red malt base with spicy rye notes. Honestly hoppy reds just don’t do it for me. Would have preferred the beer sans all the mosaic.

Bottle from Village Wine and Spirits in Athens. Nice hoppy and floral nose with light fruit. Very pretty reddish brown color, tan head. Light pepper malt initial / gentle earthy bittering / good balance with a trail of sweet fruit. Thin-medium body. Very good. Red rye seems to offer less pepper than regular. The Mosaic is present but not so strong.

Pours a chestnut color with a decent off white head. Aroma is rye, pine. Taste is nice bitterness up front, smooth rye spiciness, slight pine, tailing off into an earthy aftertaste. Interesting set of flavors.

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.
