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.

16 oz can. Easy drinking session IPA. Not too hoppy or bitter. Slight citrus scent and taste. Wish there was a little more but this is a truly sessionable beer. Very drinkable and tasty. Would be great for summer. My can doesn’t say “session” just Mosaic IPA

Pours a beer yellow with fair clarity and 1/4" white head. Aroma was more of the other hops than it was Mosaic. Wasn't enough Mosaic to overcome the Centennial and Cascade. A lot of that forest and grapefruit rind aroma that you get from bittering C hops moreso.

The taste is pretty much the same as the nose, you get primarily Cascade, Centennial and Simcoe giving it a firm bitterness even if the malt bill was bigger than a session. The slightly weird thing was that the Mosaic of all places showed up down the road in the mouth feel. So the bittering hops make up the aroma and the aroma hop gives a little bit of tropical feel at the end of the beer.

Its a good enough beer that fulfills that summer hop drinking easily. For having four different hops in this beer, it seems they named it after the one they used the least of. That's ok, it was still good.

Pours a nice frothy head and cloudy gold color. Smell is very light citra hops. Taste follows the smell and makes for a smooth easy drinker. Have a nice juiciness to it. Give it a try.

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.
