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

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

In my top 5 beers or 2020 that I tried. Just a really well done, well balanced IPA with a great mouthfeel and complex, but subtle flavors. Just a hint of honey. Wish I had regular access to this, it's a fantastic beer.

Can from Tfontana, thanks for the opportunity!
Hazy medium straw in color with a thin bubbly white head that persists. Earthy grassy with sweet bready honey maltiness and a ton of citrus and tropical fruits. Tasty.

Canned 09/07/20

Pours a light but opaque orange. On the nose I'm getting the honey and citrus, and can definitely smell the strength. Taste really follows the nose except the citrus comes first, followed by a very interesting aftertaste of malt followed by honey. Mouthfeel is great but I feel like the carbonization is a bit sharp. Overall, a beer you can't go wrong with.

Can dated 9/7/20, poured into a tulip glass.

L: Beautiful golden color. On the fringe of translucence.

S: Orange grove, meet beehive.

T: Delicious. Can’t believe this is an 8.5% ABV. The honey really takes the edge off. Citrus up front, wonderful - slightly bitter but balanced by the honey - finish.

F: Sharp and crisp, very long lingering finish.

O: One of the best beers I’ve had from Trillium. All of the elements really come together on this one. Wow!

Pours a rather hazy yellow with a finger of soapy white head. This looks great. Dense haze, nice foam, and solid retention.

Nose is tropical notes, pineapple and mango, peach, and grassy/piney hops. A touch of candy like quality. Sweetness. This smells great as well.

Taste follows the nose. Tropical notes. Pineapple and mango. The sweet peach is here too. Juicy fruit flavors. Grass and pine are stronger. There is also this savory quality that lingers in the aftertaste. Like onion initially. But on the finish it merges with the malt backbone. Such a distinct savory finish. Really well balanced. Medium bitterness and mild hop burn, but never gets too overwhelming.

Mouthfeel is smooth. Medium bodied with mild carbonation. An almost silky quality. Light and very drinkable.

Overall a fantastic IPA. My introduction to Trillium and a spectacular one indeed.
