Mosaic Red Rye IPA is an American IPA brewed by Terrapin Beer Co., and for the purposes of this craft beer, the ale was served in an IPA glass from a can.
The IPA pours a ruddy amber and is topped by a thick cap of cream colored foam. The head bubbles down rapidly and leaves a spittle of lace behind.
The aromatics are floral and perfumey with a hint of rye.
Mosaic hops dominate a palate that is herbal and woodsy. The tasting is backed by rye and sweet apricot before finishing bitterly with grapefruit.
Its feel has a medium body and moderate carbonation.
The Mosaic Red Rye IPA is a well-balanced brew that offers a variety of tastes and aromas. It’s ideal for lovers of complex beers.
Terrapin Beer Co. recommends the following food pairings with its Mosaic Red Rye IPA: gorgonzola or Stilton, Thai stir-fry with chicken, tofu, or beef in a sweet-spicy sauce.
