Community Beer Company Mosaic IPA
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Community Beer Company Mosaic IPA.
From the Community Beer Company website: “This is not your average IPA. From the incredible nose, to the amazing finish, this IPA is one that both session drinkers and beer nerds alike will love.
We’re full on board the hopwagon with this big American-style IPA. However, it is not designed to blow your head off with overpowering hop bitterness. Instead, Mosaic IPA is an extremely well-balanced brew that showcases its unique hop aroma and flavor.
This beer gets its name from a new hop variety named “Mosaic,” which is predominantly where the immense, raw hop aroma and flavor is derived. Mosaic IPA has a noticeable malt backbone to help soften the high level of hop bitterness and flavor, while keeping the body fairly light.
The word "Mosaic" is also representative of the diverse range of individuals that make up our community. It's perfect in every way!”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a golden honey color with a dense beige head leaving tons of lacing.
Aroma: Citrus and tropical scents, honey and some caramel.
Taste: Citrus and tropical hop flavors, honey, toasted bread and some caramel malt sweetness.
Overall: Crisp and balanced, Community Beer Company Mosaic IPA is delicious. This 8.6% ABV offering is something I would drink regularly if it was available in CA. This one gets an A+++!
