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.

Fantastic rye style IPA, with great hop aromas and bitterness. Nice deep red like color with excellent head retention and body. This is a maltier beer in my opinion. Overall great beer!

Pours a beautiful dark red with a khaki 1 finger head. Pure canned tropical fruit punch aroma that’s delicious! Unbelievably smooth body & flavor with a hint of the aroma coming in late in the taste halfway down. Very low bitterness for an IPA and mainly a flavoring hopped IPA. Very different beer and very good. This is a really delicious & characterful A+ for me. May be the best beer I have had to date
