3.4/5 rDev -8.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
A: Very dark copper red in color. Almost brown. Still a bit translucent. Clear from what I can tell. Forms a smallish, bubbly, odd-sort-of-green-brown tinted colored head. Lots of lacing.
S: Aroma smells sort of like a fart. (my mosaic home-brew smelled something like this when it got to be about 6 months old) There is a bit of blueberry, citrus, caramel malt, and wheat bread.
T: The taste is no better. There is a distinctly "fermented" taste to this beer. Caramel malt, molasses, berries. Faint sweetness. Raisins. Even a little hint of chocolate. Slight rye spice.
M: On the heavier side of medium. Light sweetness. Restrained bitterness. Appropriate carbonation.
O: Sort of an odd beer. As I mentioned above, my personal experience with Mosaic is that this is how it tastes when it gets old. Not sure when this one was bottled so I don't know how old the beer is, but the bottle says it's good until 7/14. Thankfully I was able to pick this one up as a single.

3.06/5 rDev -17.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25
A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a copper color and a cloudy consistency. There was an inch of foamy, fairly long-lasting head. Pretty good lacing.
S: An average aroma of rye, malt, and hops. Not very surprising.
T: Tasted of grassy hops, malt, rye, and a little caramel as well. The combination of the grassy hops and an overall thinness make for a less than interesting flavor.
M: A decent amount of carbonation with a watery finish. Medium-bodied.
O: Not the greatest example of a rye-infused IPA. Could have been better than it was.
