Beer Review: Revolution Mosaic Hero IPA

IMG_2226

Revolution Mosaic hero is an IPA showcasing the unique and amazing hop, Mosaic. Rather than it being a single hop IPA, it utilizes Warrior and Zythos to help put Mosaic on display in all its glory. Mosaic Hero joins the other beers in this series Citra, Crystal, Jukebox and Galaxy. Mosaic Hero comes in at 7.5% and 75 IBUs.

Appearance: Dark copper or a light amber color. 1 finger head and pretty decent lacing. Big fan of all the art for the hero series. They have also since began canning it.

Nose: Super juicy. Lots of tropical fruit, mango, pineapple and some pine resin notes as well. Nice nose which definitely showcases the awesome aspects of Mosaic.

Taste/Mouth: Nice amount of bitterness with a small malt backbone to help keep everything even. Nice juicy tropical fruit flavors dominant the flavor with some pine resin also making its way over from the nose. Pretty easy drinking with a medium mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Can easily put back a few pints of it.

Price/Availability: Around $8 for a bomber and about $12 for a 6 pack of cans. Seasonal rotating release part of the hero series.

Overall: Another nice beer in the hero series, the heroes which showcase single hops are especially solid. Love to support Revolution as well so that is always a plus. I will buy this one again for sure when it rotates into season. I am a huge fan of Mosaic and glad they began to can this one.

Grade: B+
