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.

Pours a deep, almost clear ruby with a dense light tan head that leaves very good lacing. Aroma is pine, pepper, and soap. Taste is a wave of bittersweet rye followed by an intensely clean and bitter pine/soap finish that lingers for a while. Mouthfeel is thick, but thin enough to be refreshing. This is a good IPA alternative, and showcases the new hops well.

Fresh hoppy piney tropical fruit scent. Dark red body slight amber top. piny, hoppy, dry citrus finish. Refreshingly dry on the palate. Delicious

Red with a thin white head. Aroma is roasted malt and mild pine hops. A little hit of resin at the edge. Flavor is mild pine hops with a resinous texture and a strong mildly sweet malt finish. A bit of sharpness from the rye comes through in the aftertaste. Reminds me of their Big Hoppy Monster, but a little less over hopped. Wife: 4

Pours brown with a minimal light tan head. Aroma is "in your face" piney hops. You can also smell the sweetness, which combines well with the hop aroma. Taste is initially rye malts leading to slightly sweet pine and a well balanced malt/bitterness in the finish. All of the flavors in this medium bodied ale are complimentary with nothing over the top. Subtle & well made!

Intense pine nose with grapefruit accents. Clear ochre, thick tan head, lacy. Pine and rye flavor, perfectly balanced, for an IPA. Medium body, very soft carbonation. Wow, such a wonderfully well rounded beer, straightforward, sessionable, flavorful, and not overly fruity.
