Mosaic hops, wow !!. This beer poured a deep amber color with average head and spotty lacing all over. The aroma is amazing, with lots of fruitiness, peaches, plums, pineapple and such coming forth. Also some breadiness in the nose. Taste is awesome, with flavors of nectarine, pineapple, overripe plums and other assorted citrus. Also a nice hop bitterness that balances this beer almost perfectly. This feels great in the mouth and going down, like fresh picked stone fruits. End flavor is greatly balanced and you get fruits and hoppiness in a wonderful balance at the end. Will definitely look for more brews with predominately Mosaic hops in them now that I have tried this one, WoW !!

Date on the bottom of the can says 6.4.15, so I guess the Mosaic hop flavors are buried by the rye. Lots of interesting flavors in this beer, but I was hoping for more hop flavor.
Also, it smells like cold ramen noodle soup, I don't know why.

Pours a deep amber red with a light khaki colored head that falls to a thin collar. Smells of spicy rye, caramel, bread, and a mix of citrus and pine hops. The flavor begins with a slight rye spiciness that expected to be more pronounced and moves to a sweeter than expected caramel. Finishes with a grapefruit citrus and firm bitterness. Mouthfeel is a medium, yet a tad more thin than expected. Enjoyable, but all of the pieces don't quite come together as cohesively as desired.

Had higher hopes for this one. Decent beer, good red rye, but nothing that stands out.
