Notes / Commercial Description:
A homage to Blue Point Brewing Company’s storied history – a tale that is preserved on the original Tasting Room bar top that dates to 1997 – Mosaic Session IPA is a straw-colored, West Coast style that showcases serious aroma. It features Mosaic, Simcoe, Centennial, and Cascade hops that lend strong tropical fruit characteristics to a light body and dry finish. Our Session IPA has a complex India Pale Ale flavor without all the punch.

Poured from 16-ounce can into a heavy glass tumbler. Pretty pour, clear pale yellow in color with a sticky white head that left some nice lacing as it settled. This sample was well beyond the canning date, which seems to have affected it not in the least. Very fruity and floral aromas and flavors, with lots of grapefruit and lots of pithy bitterness. Not much sweetness at all, medium mouthfeel, and a pleasantly dry finish. Well made and very drinkable, exactly what you'd want in a session IPA.

Slightly cloudy light golden color with a thin white head; Very nice "here I am" sweet aroma. Crisp mouthfeel with a bit of sparkle. Mild hoppy flavor without too much aftertaste.

My bottle has a completely different label than the one shown by BA. as of this writing.

This brew, from a twelve ounce bottle, is a completely clear yellow-gold color. The head is puffy and tall...bright white. Grassy and grainy aroma with some spice. Could be more complex. The taste is balanced, with a lot of hop bitterness and sharpness in the mid-taste. Okay, but not great.

I have had this many times but never made t to a review, but I like session IPAs and I like Blue Point so I know this will work out fine. This is dry with medium bitterness and a mellow citrus and herbal aftertaste. Pretty simple and refreshing overall, and obviously they go down fairly easy. A four pack of tall boys for $5.99 at Bullseye in Smithown is a pretty solid deal as well.

Blue Point Mosaic Session IPA 4.8% growler purchased at the brewery in October, 2017. Refrigerated ale poured into a simple glass

This is quite pale, with a moderate hoppy aroma. The head is small, and very white. Flavor features the Mosaic hop bitterness. I think this is a fine quenching drink. The hoppy aftertaste lasts for a minute.

Decanted from a 12 oz (355 ml) bottle into a conical pint glass; produced 01/13/17.
A: Pours a hazy, dark straw color with a fluffy, white one inch head, good retention, and some lacing.
S: Bouquet almost entirely citrus and tropical fruit.
T: Initially tastes tart and close to unsweetened grapefruit with pine/eucalyptus notes that resolve with time. Bitterness apparent slowly, but in very nice balance. Fruit pleasantly in aftertaste.
M: Light to medium bodied with solid carbonation throughout.
O: Really a nice Session IPA. I appreciate that this brew has this much flavor with a significantly lower ABV (4.8%).

A buddy of mine and I were on our annual baseball trip in NYC this year so of course we were sampling as many local brews as possible. I was on a bit of an IPA kick at the time so I ordered this one up.

This beer pours a glowing amber hue that is clear with moderate carbonation and a thin, white head that dissipates to a thin lacing quite quickly. 3.75/5 The aroma is primary of grapefruit and pine with a light caramel sweetness. This is really a nice, hoppy beer, especially for a session beer. 3.75/5 The flavor profile is just like the aroma, although the caramel sweetness stands out a bit more and really kicks things off quite nicely. The grapefruit and pine take over quite quickly and dominate the rest of the taste. Bitterness is light to moderate and really doesn't linger after swallowing. 3.75/5 This is a light bodied beer, as expected, with light carbonation and a moderate dryness that lingers for a bit after swallowing. 4/5 This is one of the more flavorful session beers that I have had recently and drinks pretty awesome at a ballpark. 3.75/5

This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a slightly hazy to burnt yellow color with a rocky foamy head that dissipated at a nice pace. Adequate lacing stuck and then slid into the beer. The smell started with a sweet tropical fruits trying to blend with subtle spice but stays disconnected throughoutthe entire beer. The taste was pretty much the same thing with a lingering sweet to spicy weird harsh aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Carbonation runs fairly light still allowing the bitterness from the hops to bounce around on my tongue. Overall, I say this was an average session IPA, so most likely I probably wouldn’t come back to.
