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.

Aroma is hoppy but has a very earthy malt. Color is a dark brown with a small white ring. Taste is hop but lacks most else kinda like a void where good flavor or good hop should be. Palate is lacking hop finish but has a stale sweetness.

Weird beer. Has slight pleasant hints of peach, perhaps, and a bit of spice from the rye but the finish is harsh and I’m not sure why but theres an unpleasant flavor from the weird sweetness midpalate.

Beerman6686 (3870) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2014
This one poured a hazy orange color with a beige head. Aroma was of grassy and fruity hops, toasted malt, and caramel. Flavor was similar, some rye, mosaic wasnt represented here very well really.

nimbleprop (4196) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 5, 2014
12oz bottle pours a dark, ruddy amber with some thick, foamy, slightly beige head. Nose is kind of cool, very fruity, ripe apple, mango, prickly pear, a little bit of candy, some JuicyFruit gum. Flavor is heavy with ripe tropical fruit, mango, starfruit, a little ripened jackfruit, guava, tropical fruit bubble gum, a bit of malt, some candy, some ripe orange, a little bit of key lime. Sticky finish.

Last night with Matt. Nice rye, decent hop kick with plenty of malt character. Had this late in the night so my palate was pretty beat up, I'd like to try it again.

NielsenRatings (8273) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 4, 2014
Bottle @ home, courtesy of Homer 321, I believe. Thanks! Dark reddish orange appearance with a cream colored head. A fair amount of toast and cracker in the nose along with some spicy, herbal hops. Kind of chewy, goopy malty flavor. Hops are kind of dull. Herbal, piney notes. Moderate to high sweetness. Moderate bitterness. This may be a touch old, but I’m still not a huge fan.

AR (997) - Georgia, USA - APR 4, 2014
This is a full-flavored beer with a medium-heavy body. There is a strong hop flavoring that doesn’t have an offensive bite. Well Blended.

Dark amber with a tannish color head. Malty base with nutty flavor, smooth caramel, and a fairly crisp finish.

Oakes (11779) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 1, 2014
Dark amber, thick head, nice mosiac lemon rind kind of aroma. Sweet, fairly chewy crystal and Slightly herbal, and nice hops...moderate bitterness...actually the overload of hops works out for this.

Bottled in virginia. Poured orangey, nice hops and obvious rye. Not bad, but nothing amazing going on here.
