Family tree explores the relationship between a family of first class hops: Nugget, Simcoe and Mosaic. The exotic fruit, spice and earthiness of Nugget and the stone fruit and piney flavours of Simcoe have been bred together to create Mosaic - an excitingly complex eliciting the characteristics of both its parents, and much more. Here we can see how the three get along together, as one hoppy family.

Keg at the Bootlegger, High Wycombe, 05/12/15. Clear golden with a well appointed off white covering that retains well. Nose is caramel malt, straw, bitter orange, light bread, orange wine gums. Taste comprises orange pith, straw, melon, tangerine, toasted malt. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close laced with juicy hop bitterness. Ok stuff.

jamestulloch (3427) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 12, 2014
Bottle from Great Grog. Hazy amber body with tiny yeast flecks floating around. Medium off-white head. Nice lacing. Aroma of candy, orange and pineapple. Flavour of toffee apple, orange, roasted malt and a slightly boozy finish. Medium body with an oily texture. Soft fizz. I like more bitterness in an IPA - this is a bit too sweet and malty.

stjamesgate (199) - IRELAND - AUG 8, 2014
Bottled 27.Feb, BBD 25.May Dark amber with rimming, pocked parchment head. Dried orange rind and sap nose. Dark toast with a hint of chocolate them papaya, tangelo and pineapple juice hops. Flower nectar finish and pithy linger. Medium, chewy, oily, some wheaty cream. --Tropical fruit, all right, but stewy more than bright. Not sure if that’s it being past expiry date (which is ambitiously short) or just by design. Marris Otter and Munich together makes this butter and round. Interesting combo of Nugget, Simcoe, and Mosaic, but it just doesn’t come together.

The_Osprey (6330) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2014
Bottled Feb 2014. Nice bottle. The beer is an opaque hazy brick red / orange, small white head. Aroma is bad. Wet sticks, popadom, vegetal, compost bin. Ergh. Body is medium, some spritz, a little foamy. Taste is much, much better than the aroma - though that wouldn’t be difficult. Lemon, sweet caramel, slight sherbet.

6th July 2014
Very hazy amber beer, tidy pale cream coloured head. Palate is smooth with fine carbonation. Light malt with a little sweet cream. Light hops - ripe orange whisper of some Sorachi like lemon, Light dry finish. Not bad but the hops could be punchier.
