I purchased this at Wegman's enjoyed chilled from the 12oz in a willybecker.

The color is deep copper bordering on bronze with crimson hue and thick tan head with fine bead and spotty lace sticks. The smell is fruity, herbal and slightly sweet with a nice rye maltiness in the aroma with slight citrus orange-like scent with light toast. The feel is moderately carbonated with medium body and slight sweetness with a hop bitterness that starts low and builds but does not take away from the balance of malt with mild alcohol and semi-sweet finish.

The taste is good with nice malt presence which is more toasted than sweet with slight hint of caramel and mild citrus from the hops with a more herbal flavor and mild spice aspect. The flavor is good with malt supporting the mild orange flavor in the hops with a smooth yeast adding to the hops which are lightly piney toward the finish which has a mild alcohol warmth yet is more dry than sweet. Overall I like this but expected more from the Mosaic since the beer is named for it, but I understand it is a single hop and perhaps it might work better in a blend. I like the full malt and would not hesitate to try this on draft or purchase it again.

Paid $3.50 for the single. Into a mason jar pint glass.
A - Wow thats a deep dark beer with a ruby brown color clear with a 1/4 inch of head that sticks around for a bit. Solid lacing.
S - Smelled in the bottle very hoppy and nutty. In the glass more rye bread type smell and juicy hops. Diving in.
T - A very mixed hop experience I get bread rye malts, dye bittering hops that leave a soapy feeling on the palate, and sweet citrus hop rind with a cracker like mix.
M - Very slick each sip coats the mouth with dry bread clashing with soapy west coast hop bitterness but it all comes to a medium bodied drink experence.

Wow I have not had a beer so tasty and complex in a bit. Well worth the experence. One of the better rye IPA's I had next to RYEpa from founders.
