look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours a deep brown with a hint of amber/red when held up to light. A finger of head dissapates but leaves behind some really nice, chunky lacing.

S: Fresh hops and malts - well balanced.

T: Bitter hopping present up front - really fresh, piney and grassy - stays bitter throughout but picks up a nice spiced, rye malt towards the end. Excellent.

M: Good body.

O: Well done and wish I had more of this brew.

Terrapin Mosaic
Poured this into a Sam Adams pint glass. The body has a dark whiskey ruby hue to it, topped off with a frothy beige head that could probably hold on for week, perhaps longer.
The aroma leaps up into your honker and explodes with spicy hops, citrus, caramel, tropical fruit, and slightly burnt sugar cookies.
The flavor sizzles with a rye peppery spice, balanced with a sweet malt punch that smooths it all out nice and easy.
The mouthfeel has a moderate to light carbonation.
Overall this is another fine brew conjured up by the brew wizards and warlocks at Terrapin.

On tap at Fathead's Southside. Color was a nice russet, mouthfeel clean, with a real clean hippiness and little malt, nice nose. just the lightest hint of rye. Clear and nice presentation. Served in a standard pint glass. Alcohol low enough to not knock your socks off. Will have again!

A- Dark red/orange, almost brown in color. Poured a nice, creamy 1 finger head. Sticky, soapy lacing.

S- Raisins, caramel, dark fruits, grapefruit, tropical fruits, floral and earthy hops with some pine thrown in.

T- Again with the raisins. Sometimes I think its caused by the malts, others I think its tropical flavors from the hops mixing with the malts, and then I remember there's rye in there. Either way, raisin is what I get up front, followed by caramel, roasted malts, grapefruit, earthy hops and pine. A touch pepper comes in at the end and spices things up. Tropical flavors become more pronounced as it warms. Very nice.

M- Medium body with crisp carbonation. Slick and oily feel with a nice drying effect.

O- This is a damn good beer. It really should warm a bit before you drink it. The flavors become much more pronounced and balanced as it does. I would certainly have this again.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Look: Pours a ruby-brown with a 1-2 finger head and alot of lacing.
Smells: Smells awesome, lots of passion fruit and grape fruit. Generally super fruity.
Taste: at first there is the malt has a cnadied sweetness, lots of grapefruit with a hint of spice, and then it fades to a hoppy bitterness.
Mouthfeel: It has a medium thickness and is substantial but not heavy.
Overall: very good, one of my favorite terrapin beers.

On tap at Kickbacks in Jax. Poured into a Unibroue snifter. Dark, deep copper body, beige head, moderate retention. Mostly clear, sticky lacing. Aroma dominated by fresh, piney hops with some background caramel malt sweetness. Taste is intensely bittered, mainly grapefruit, pine and grass. I assume this is the Mosaic hop being showcased and it is delicious.
