When we first got our noses in and hands on the experimental hop, then known only as HBC 369 CV, we knew it was something special. We wanted to make a lower alcohol IPA that didnt drink like many others we tried. There was good hoppiness to most of them, but the body seemed lacking. We went to work on solving this, and it took a bit of time. When we were finally convinced our session IPA was ready for prime time, HBC 369 had been named: Mosaic.

We employ this chameleon cone -with its exceptional palette of flavors- at each stage in the hopping process. Paul has actually created a lower alcohol session ale with the flavor and body of an American IPA. This beer has developed a following in the active lifestyle crowd, especially with cyclists, but its also a great beer when you just want a little more hang-time with your IPA. Dedicated to our hop-loving friend, David Moes, we brew this beer for true hop heads.

corkyrory66 (1856) - BELGIUM - MAY 5, 2017
Session ipa de 4,6 % et 40 ebu, tudie lpoque o le mosac tait encore au stade exprimental... Mon exemplaire avait 18 mois de bouteille. Couleur ambre moyen, un peu rouquin, la clart nette. Bulles fines, par centaines, partout et trs vives. Mousse beige clair, trs paisse, avec des cratres en haut, stable 8 mm. Trs joli. Armes de fruits exotiques, rsine de pin, malt cara. 1re bouche un peu "croustillante", lentame malt/houblon, mais sans quilibre. Arrire-bouche nettement sur la rsine, astringente. 2me avec des notes mles de porto blanc et fruits exotiques. Arrire-bouche assez trange rsine/zeste/porto blanc. 3me au corps plus dense que les sessions habituelles. Arrire-bouche lharmonie faible entre rsine et corce de pin. Longueur qui ne parvient pas dgommer (sans jeu de mots) la rsine, mais lensemble est plus satisfaisant et moins astringent. Jambes fines, serres, collantes en haut. Levure pice, ligne correcte. Alcool qui tient compagnie, plus quil norganise il est domin par lexprimental de la chose. Finale sans vrai dveloppement. CONCLUSION: il est trs bien dexprimenter, mais sans notre objectif dquilibre et harmonie, on est bien triste .. mme si cette session a beaucoup plus de corps que ses consurs!!

Pours dark copper color with a large head. Aroma is strong with resin and piney notes, hops, caramel, orange and grapefruits. Flavor is citric fruity, resinous hoppy, slick, some caramel sweetness, finish is bitter. Not very fresh anymore, decent anyway.

guzgorog (833) - FRANCE - DEC 5, 2016
Robe orange / ambre claire, limpide, belle mousse blanche qui tient pas mal. Nez agrume et pin, une touche de caramel. Bouche principalement sur le pin. Corps assez rond et lourd pour le faible titrage, bonne amertume et bonne carbo. Assez bonne petite IPA, bien que pas trs subtile ni orginale.
