Today we are drinking the Mosaic Rye IPL (India Pale Lager) out of Highland Brewing Company of Asheville. IPLs contain a similar hop characteristic as that of their popular cousin the IPA, but the lager yeast strain brings the character of the hops and malts even more to the forefront. This brew is a part of their Warrior Series – with bold aromas and flavors, often high gravity, released a few times per year in limited quantities. The Mosaic Rye IPL delivers “huge citrusy notes to complement hints of tangerine and pepper from Australian Ella hops. Think hop candy with a clean, piney-nuanced and sticky finish.”
