I used to listen to a beer podcast that used the term "man candy" to describe sweet, high alcohol double IPAs. Mosaic is man candy. Its mouth-coating, sweet resin combines with the bitter taste of grapefruit to produce a formidable beer. It drinks above its 9.0% abv.
Mosaic is a serious double IPA. I don't know whether Saint Archer is going to make Mosaic a regular release, but in a time when big-hopped, lower abv IPAs and pale ales are becoming the new standard, it's nice to get a beer with some old-fashioned swagger, even if I bumbled upon it.
