Mosaic IPAMosaic IPA
BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Community Beer Company
Texas, United States
communitybeer.com

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.60%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
The deep golden/light amber color of this IPA comes from the use of a blend of English Maris Otter and American pale base malts. Sparing use of English crystal malt lends some caramel sweetness to help balance the hefty bitterness. Heady aromas of blueberry, pine, citrus and tropical fruit are the result of blending Mosaic hops with several other delicious American hop varieties. For being a large, hoppy beer it is quite drinkable, in part due to the balancing act of alcohol, malt complexity, and enormous American hop character.

Not bad, but a little underwhelming. Mosaic is my favorite hop varietal, but the IPA is more malty than hoppy.

Totally a surprise. At Banger's in Austin and server recommend it after asking for a strong ipa. Very happy and will be adding it to the regular rotation at home!

On tap at the Ginger Man (Midtown, Houston), served in a tulip glass. Hazy amber gold with a brief head of near white foam and streaky lace. Resinous pine, grapefruit rind and citrusy rosemary balance out caramel malt notes. Earthy tea and herbal bitterness close the dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. A solid IPA, getting big and boozy, but still well balanced and drinkable.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is an orange color with a small white head. The aroma is all citrus hops. The taste is malt with citrus and pine hops.
