BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Karl Strauss Brewing Company
California, United States

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.50%

Availability: Spring

Notes / Commercial Description:
Formerly Mosaic Session Ale

Before the Mosaic hop even had a name (back when it was just known as “HBC 369”), our brewers couldn’t wait to get their hands on some. Mosaic Session IPA is bursting with vibrant grapefruit aroma and flavors of citrus and tropical fruit. Our signature dry-hopping technique delivers an incredibly drinkable lower ABV beer without sacrificing hop appeal. From a small test batch to the bottle you now hold in your hands, this isn’t a one-and-done beer. Sit back, have a few, and enjoy your session.

Color is very light yellow/amber with minimal head. Notes of melon, tropical fruits (guava, papaya, pineapple, etc.), pine, hops, and perhaps lemon grass. Taste is very light with bitterness well balanced. Very clean, light, crisp IPA. Great for a hot summer afternoon.
