Served in a teku.

The down the middle pour results in a finger's width of white, puffy foam. A copper, clear body looks the part of a well made beer.

The nose explodes with sweet tropical fruits and honey. The candied orange, papaya, and berry scents are so enticing! There is a slight fusel quality buried under everything, with an herbal tinge.

The palate mimics the nose well, all the way through to the finish. The berry notes are even more apparent if anything. The bitterness in the finish sneaks up slowly. The beer is predominantly sweet on the palate from the tropical fruit hoppiness and caramel-like malts.

This Community offering has a nice medium-bodied heft with a creamy and slightly drying finish.

Mosaic is a heck of an IPA! The berry, tropical fruitiness of this beer is astounding. If you like your IPA's sweet, then this one will do the trick.

Poured into a standard pint glass: Mosaic is clear copper with a dense initial head that leaves great lacing on the sides of the glass. Aroma is particularly nice, with resiny, floral hops, and a slightly nutty maltiness. The flavor is also great: strong, drying bitterness from start to finish, toasty, crackery malt, and of course lots of hop flavor, tending towards the pine-resin. This is a big, savoring IPA, with a lot of body, akin to a dogfish 90: something to drink at the end of the night, where it makes a great finish.

Received as an extra from Bulldoza. Thanks, Nick!

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. One inch thick head of foam quickly dissipates to a ring around the glass. Color is a nice copper with bits of golden. Smells fantastic. The mosaic hop really shines through on the nose. Nice and fruity floral boquet. Hint of sweetness from the malt. Taste is nice and crisp. Malt and hops are nicely balanced, leaning slightly more towards the maltier side. Mouthfeel is great. Very creamy.

Overall, another impressive beer from Community and another outstanding texas beer. Cheers!
