Cutting Tiles - MosaicCutting Tiles - Mosaic
Notes: Formerly Artaic.

Artaic Double IPA is brewed with 100% Mosaic hops in all kettle, whirlpool and two massive dry hop additions. Local raw wildflower honey keeps the body light and drinkable but provides a floral, earthy backbone. Juicy, candied peach and nectarine up front backed up with a nuanced white wine on the nose that continues straight through in the flavor profile. Pillowy soft mouthfeel, with a restrained bitterness on the finish. Artaic is an innovative Fort Point business that creates dynamic mosaics only possible through innovative robotics.

MALT: Pilsner, White Wheat, Flaked Wheat, Dextrine, C-15

HOPS: Mosaic

Never wavering and as juicy, succulent and balanced as ever for the beer's at the Cutting Tiles head of the class, the careful use of raw wildflower honey gives the exotic and curious hops of Mosaic more of a ripe fruit quality than they can munster on their own. Breaming with vibrancy, the hop-centric beer retains a semi-sweet balance for both complexity and smoothness.

The Mosaic version of Cutting Tiles pours with a heavy haze, golden matte finish, capped with a rich and creamy meringue. A strong herbal perfum is followed with tropical fruit, berry and botanicals which tease the nose while the taste is lightly pastry-like with honey, caramel and an overall angel-food malt profile.

With the sweetness holding serve through the middle palate, its the fruity hop blend grows into bitterness seamlessly. Blood orange, grapefruit, mango, nectarine, apricot and cantaloup each align on the tongue with the dripping sweet and slightly acidic action of citrus fruit with other influences of blackcurrant, mint and black tea. Spruce, chive and dank herb frame a finish that circulates around the peppery bitterness of black tea, verbena, sassafras and cannabis.

Nearly teeth churning and mouth-watering at the same time, the medium-full IPA carries a peppery dryness deep into aftertaste with the balancing bitter bite accompanying the spruce. But lingering sweetness keeps the fruit impressions bold and bright, crisp and clean, refreshing and tropical punch-like all at once.

Picked up a 16 oz can from the Blue Door Bottleshop 1-27-23 for $10. Canned 12-21-22; consumed 2-10-23.

Beer poured a chilled orange with a nice white head with the original pour.

Nose is very nice, very dank with citrus and stone fruit theme going.

Taste is a light but significant pale malt base that gives the hops to showcase a peach forward flavor profile with a touch of orange lingering in the back. Finishes pale ale like balance; 5/10 on my bitterness scale.

Mouthfeel is light bodied and very refreshing.

Overall an very good to excellent beer. Definitely overpaid for it but it was a nice splurge!

Bar poured two finger head. Cloudy light amber/dirty gold color. Minor spots.

Spicy hop nose with black pepper, charred wood, and butter. Light malt background.

Clean blend of non-grainy pale malt and subtly bittering hop. Above average body with an elevated level of effervescence. The finish has the mildest of tartness. There's a toasted white bread flavor in the swallow. The aftertaste is mostly a dry, peppery flavor.

A-Hazy yellow with a white head that does linger a bit
S-Aroma is sweet and floral, with elements of ripe fruit and candied orange
M-Juicy and smooth, but the alcohol does bite a bit. Low carbonation and full bodied.
T-Sweet upfront with alcohol coming through quite assertively
O-Can was good, but this review needs to consider the fresher version at the brewery which was outstanding…
Note-I had this at the brewery and it was a knockout…this review is of a can purchased at the brewery, but was about 6 weeks old
