This a VERY GOOD RYE beer.
I still like Rasta Rye the best.
Although this beer is a little stronger and a little too much rye and hops.
Still a great beer.
I WILL BUY AGAIN.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Light brown with reddish hue to it, 1 inch off whit head, good lacing

S: Good amount of floral hop smell with the sweet rye malt in the background

T: Very tame fruity to floral hop bitterness up front balanced by sweet malty taste next, slight astringent aftertaste

M: Medium with good carbonation

O: One of my new favorites, but I tend to like an IPA with plenty of malt sweetness and this one has plenty of that. Terrapin continues to impress.

This beauty has a great mosaic taste to it. The rye adds a nice finish to it and gives it some depth. This is a great session beer- the best in Terrapins hoppy session line by far.

12oz Can with a best by date of 06/16/16.

Appearance: Pours a clear ruby with 1 finger of beige-colored head

Smell: Hop pine and citrus zest

Taste: Citrus hops with some pine and stone fruit, rye spice in the middle with a balanced finish

Mouthfeel: Medium with some residual resin

Overall: Impressive use of Mosaic hops with plenty of balance leading to a complex IPA. Probably the best beer I have had from Terrapin.

Calling this one an IPA is a bit of a disservice - it is much darker and perhaps more complex than the typical IPA offering. The color is a deep red - almost brown. The aroma is heavy on the rye. The taste is complex, with elements of the rye well balanced with sweeter notes. An unforgettable glass!

Mosaic hops, wow !!. This beer poured a deep amber color with average head and spotty lacing all over. The aroma is amazing, with lots of fruitiness, peaches, plums, pineapple and such coming forth. Also some breadiness in the nose. Taste is awesome, with flavors of nectarine, pineapple, overripe plums and other assorted citrus. Also a nice hop bitterness that balances this beer almost perfectly. This feels great in the mouth and going down, like fresh picked stone fruits. End flavor is greatly balanced and you get fruits and hoppiness in a wonderful balance at the end. Will definitely look for more brews with predominately Mosaic hops in them now that I have tried this one, WoW !!

Can date- best by 6/2016

Pours a very clean ruby red with thin off white head

Nose- caramel malt sweetness, soft pine, stone fruit, cocoa? Interesting.

Taste- explosion of juicy nectarine, peach, grapefruit. Nice caramel malt backing with some sweetness, pairing with accentuating the juiciness of the mosaic hop. Rye quickly interrupts with subtle earthy spice and evergreen-mint bite. Juicy mosaic and toasty sweet malt on the finish with a touch of rye dryness and spice

Feel- juicy, vibrant, bitey, light-medium bodied

I love this beer. IMO the Mosaic pair up perfectly with the toasty sweetness of the malt and the spice of the rye. Complex, vibrant, lots of flavor. Perfect for late winter.
Cheers
