Foothills Brewing Hop of the Month Mosaic India Pale Ale

Finally an IPA for Foothills and Hop of the Month series, this is Mosaic India Pale Ale, 7.0% ABV with an IBU of 69. This IPA is brewed with Mosaic hops, which are true to their name; provide a medley of flavorful notes. Bred from Nugget and Simcoe Hops. The Mosaic hop complex aromas yield to a variety of earthy, pine and fruit flavors; you should look for a predominance of mango, berry and lemon. Mosaic pours a deep copper orange color with a massive four finger white foamy head. Aroma is big and flavorful with nice fruits like a big of mango and slight lemon with faint hints of pine and some earthy notes. Taste is great with big grapefruit, touches of mango with very faint lemon. There is a bit of a pine with earthy notes as well to round it out. The mouth feel is on the lighter side with a nice semi-sweet, semi-bitter fruit finish with some slight pine to it. The after taste is smoother than you would expect on an IPA. There is a nice pine and fruit taste to it. This is another great beer in a great series. I give this an A+ for sure. I would have this again and again. Every flavor of this beer was awesome, they all melted together to create one great IPA. Foothills Hop of the Month Mosaic India Pale Ale is one I highly recommend trying, as well as the previous months in this great series of beers from Foothills Brewing. Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
