Mosaic Promise showcases two unique ingredients: Mosaic hops and Golden Promise malt. The versatility of the hop’s pleasing aroma and flavor characteristics and the traditional barley’s depth of flavor comprise this clean, rich, golden beer. 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.

Malt - Golden Promise
Hop - Mosaic

Had to look that up cause I'm a stickler for knowing. I really enjoy these single hop, single malt brews these breweries are releasing. Had a few so far and it really let's the beginner pallette of mine dial in on a hop/malt/combo that I really enjoy.

Overall it's a solid brew made by a solid brewery. Nothing that will garner it to be number one on the top 250 list. Not overly bitter or a long lasting bitterness but bitter enough to let you know it's an ipa. Bitterness fades into a really really nice dry finish. The show stealer for me was the smell. Nice citrus fruity scent with a dash of pine in there. I would pick this beer to give as an introduction into hoppy beers as it won't overpower a noon and it smells pretty enough to keep them around. The body and finish is nailed by the Brewers which is another strong point. It doesn't suck. Try it.
