Beer of the Week: Karl Strauss Mosaic IPA
Launched in 2014, Karl Strauss’ Mosaic IPA is a session beer that is hopped full of flavor. Using only Mosaic hops, this beer rings at only 5.5% but drinks like many of its stronger counterparts. There are notes of grapefruit both on the nose, and the palate. Along with the citrus flavor, there are tropical fruit flavors as well. Think passion fruit, and mango. It is not very bitter at 45 IBU, which is great for introducing hops to the intimidated palate. It also pairs well with rich seafood, Caribbean cuisine, as well as with citrus-forward dishes or vinaigrettes. We love this beer, and it continues to be one of our best sellers. It is not only a great sell, but also award winning. This beer has taken Bronze at the Great American Beer Festival TWICE in both 2014, and 2016. Find out why this beer is a customer favorite! We carry this beer in 12oz glass bottle, can; and in 1/6 and 1/2 gallon kegs in the Greater Fresno and East Bay Areas.
