Phillips Kaleidoscope Mosaic IPA Review

Phillips Brewing Co. – Kaleidoscope Mosaic IPA Review

The Kaleidoscope Mosaic IPA comes from Victoria’s Phillips Brewery and features the Hop variety that all of BC is talking about. The Mosaic-hopped Kaleidoscope is a golden coloured ale that has 3 full fingers of lacing head left clinging to the glass long after pouring. Through this head comes the delicious aroma of creamy pine hop, lemon, passion fruit, mango and guava. The flavour profile starts with a bitter-sweet hop. Floral, fruit tones add sweetness to the bitter hop flavour. As the initial flavour bite subsides a pine tone comes in along side the passion fruit and guava flavours. The taste of this beer is diverse, bold and incredibly delicious. While the flavours are big this is not a heavy beer – it is light on the tongue and surprisingly sessionable. It seems like when a beer uses a mosaic hop it is nearly impossible to make a bad beer. This is definitely a beer that you need to try!
