Notes / Commercial Description:
Mosaic Promise showcases two unique ingredients: Mosaic hops and Golden Promise malt.

We can brew complex beers with the best of them, but we recognize that there is also beauty in simplicity.

The beer comes in a bright clear golden color.

The aroma is stellar of bright tangerine, citrus peel. A hint of tropical and blueberry. Spicy flora, earthy and green dankness on the back.

On the flavor, there's lots of citrus zest and grapefruit. A bright peel of citrus onto a hint of breadiness and grain in the middle. A grassiness drying cleans up on the finish.

The body is medium minus. Slightly thin.

A decent attempt from Founders at creating a newer generation IPA.

Bottle picked up locally enjoyed from a founders snifter.

a - brew pours a transparent orange yellow with a nice foamy head that is gone in seconds leaving some bubble slicks on the surface and a few streaks of lace.

s - nose is wet and ripe dripping hops. Really fresh, really nice.

t/m/o - this is an easy drinking beer, forget all day IPA, this is the all day beer. Soft and refreshing with a great flavor. Those mosaic hops are fresh and taste like they were picked and popped right into my bottle. Subtle bitterness and nice citric notes, but most of all very fresh wet hop flavor. Would definitely drink this one all day long.
