Green Flash Brewing Company Hop Odyssey Mosaic Session IPA
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Green Flash Brewing Company Hop Odyssey Mosaic Session IPA.
From the Green Flash Brewing Company website: “The first beer of our 2015 Hop Odyssey Series features Mosaic hops. This bold hop has notable characteristics from its parentage Simcoe and Nugget hops, but Mosaic creates a unique and complex floral, tropical, fruity blend with earthy characteristics. Mosaic also imparts blueberry and other dark berry notes to the beer.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours clear orange with a nice off-white head and soapy lacing.
Aroma: Citrus, tropical and pine hops scents with bready malts.
Taste: Citrus is way up front with tropical and fruity hop notes balanced well with a solid grainy malt foundation.
Overall: As a big fan of the Mosaic hop I was excited to try Green Flash Brewing Company Hop Odyssey Mosaic Session IPA. This 4.5% ABV offering did not disappoint. Delicious!
