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.

Poured from a 22 not much head with little brownish white lacing. Aroma is very nice a bit citric sweet fruit and hoppy. Taste is not what I expected mostly just rye malt flavors, not very hoppy bitter or citric. Sweet citric lingers faintly on palate, overall its pretty good but not great.

Can. Cloudy amber body with a frothy, off-white head. Malty aroma of caramel, toffee, bread, grapefruit, pine. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Taste of herbs, bread, pine, resin.

I poured it from the bottle into a pint glass. It pours reddish brown with a beige head and decent lacing. The aroma is bread, rye, and hops. The taste is floral hops, bread, dank, and some fruit. It’s sticky and filling. It’s very flavorful. I didn’t get a ton of rye. It was pretty tasty though.

JDBaker11058 (1763) - Maryland, USA - APR 19, 2016
appearance: clear ruddy amber, short light beige head. aroma:spicy, pepper, floral, and citrus notes, over a toasted bread/caramel base . taste: hops up front go piney, slightly catty and dank, a bit grassy and pepper, to juicy tropical fruit (lots going on there); nice solid base of slightly sweet, slightly spicy caramel. finish: lingering hop bitterness, hint of rye heat. notes: Not bad, not bad at all. Would try again. Draught sample at Craft BeerCo in Leesburg, Virginia.

One of the best IPAs out there for those who want a well balanced beer and not just to be slapped in the face with hop bitterness. Mosaic is a great hop!
