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.

OK this pours a deep amber, giving the appearance of an English IPA. Aroma is all malt, like an English IPA. Taste is caramelly/toffee-ish with a thick mouthfeel, like an English IPA. Alcoholic nose and taste. But the label says "American IPA". Label it American Strong Ale" or English IPA and I would believe it to be true to style. Plenty of hops bitterness, not much hops aroma. I seldom drain pour a decent beer, but this just wasn't what I was looking for. I like the hops-forward American-style IPAs and this ain't it. I won't rate it low because I don't think it's badly made, just not to my taste.

Good ipa, just a little more malt character than I like. The Woodlands, TX April 2018

This one pours a golden amber color, with a small head, and lots of lacing.

This smells unfortunately way too malty, with caramel and too much crystal malt. I get only bitter pine on the nose, and none of the usual fruitiness that is typically attendant with Mosaic hops.

The taste is the same. It's basically a big malty IPA with astringent bitterness, and none of the complexities Mosaic hops can sometimes provide. This doesn't taste like it was made with a careful hand.

This is medium bodied, crisp and with a significant bite. The carbonation level feels normal.

I really was not impressed with this one. It was about 6 weeks old, so it's maybe a little old, but I don't have much faith in it being that much better at an earlier date.

If you like Mosaic hops, you'll like this one. Exceptional!

Trying this at 54th street restaurant and drafthouse outside of Frisco. It poured a clear copper with white head that is leaving a spotty lace. The scent is tropical fruit. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it's an excellent beer .

This gun is just a small notch blow hopslam in my book. I traded for this from Texas, if it was available locally it would always be in my fridge! A solid 4.0 or above in every category.
