Mosaic - Red Rye IPA - Terrapin Beer Co. (Athens, Georgia) - 6.2% ABV

Poured from a bottle this beers pours a medium copper hue with a big head that hangs around for a while and leaves nice lacing. Aroma is very pleasant and consists of a bouquet of different fruits, you get some tropicals, some berry, some citrus all sorts of things goin on. These are all characteristics of the Mosaic hops. Mosaic hops is one of those hops that gives you the impression there is more than one hop in the beer. Taste is similar to the nose with alot of different flavors coming theough. It's a bit fruity, earthy, floral, a little spicey and definitely on the dry side with a bitter finish. There is also an ever so slight sour. Given the landscape of IPA's lately this beer is a welcomed change of pace. I know we enjoyed it.

RATING 8.3 out of 10 **


Mr. Beer Jangle

Welcome! Mr. Beerjangle is a site that is rooted in Craft Beer and everything surrounding it. We not only strive to entertain you, but also to provide information and fun reading to anyone interested in the craft beer world. However this is not just another beer site because not only will we review craft beers but we will also discuss the culture that surrounds it. Everyone involved with this site is not only a big fan of craft beer but we are also fans of music, cinema, art and pretty much anything that kicks ass. Today craft beer drinkers are more of a community. We appreciate the time, energy and detail that brewers put into every brew and craft beer appreciation isn't just a guy thing, many women are choosing a craft beer over a glass of wine and this trend seems to be growing. We will talk about where to find a great brewery or an interesting place where you can get a craft beer and listen to a live band. In other words we don't want to put ourselves into a box, this site will always be evolving and anyone who visits our site will have a chance to voice their opinion and throw in their two cents (as long as your point of view does not conflict with us "experts").....just kidding, seriously feel free voice your opinion. We will also be giving you the 411 on all types of beer related events such as festivals pour yourself a cold one (or a room temperature one) and join the party.
