A beautiful, deep red-mahogany, this six-pack, twelve-ounce version of Terrapin's original one-off Mosaic Red Rye IPA—brewed at 6.60%, and bottled only in bombers—is both smoother and milder, but also sadly less sharply rye-focused or expressive of its hops. Still, it's a good beer—sweet, sessionable, deep, with soft rye notes and slight spice—and I'm glad to see it seasonably available, but it's not quite as exciting or as bold as its side-project antecedent. But the label art is beautiful, the beer is very tasty, if a bit meek or mild, and it's—overall—a very good red-malted IPA.

This beer is past it's prime, so for what its worth if some other poor schmuck pick one up.....

12oz bottle into a pint glass. Best by August 2014, so 2 months older than it should be. Really, Terrapin, if you are going to have a red & green mosaic label, perhaps having the dating in green doesn't make it too obvious to your patrons.

Poured nicely, reddish amber coloring with a small off white head. Good lacing and carbonation.

Sweet malty aroma with a faint mustiness.

Even at this date, the rye can still be found. the hops cannot of course. But the malt is sweet and strong, so the beer not undrinkable.
