From Hops and Grain – A PALE MOSAIC is our American style IPA showcasing a fairly new hop variety called Mosaic. The beer begins with a base of German Pale Ale and Vienna malts, and is brewed for a light, crisp malt body. We use Oregon grown hops for bittering, targeting 50 IBU’s, and follow that up with a hefty whirlpool addition. Finally we dry-hop with Mosaic, Simcoe and Nugget to deliver a beer that is clean and complex with notes of pine resin, grapefruit pith and blueberries.
